VA – Archives Du Coeur Humain [PSR005]

The latest in the synth-heavy sludgedown from Public System Recordings, invites a new cast of characters into the dungeon dance. The common theme throughout this sampler of titans of industrial the world over, seems to be wide, slowed down melancholy. Some tracks take a floor-friendly jump, while others demand the attentive consumption of a more serene setting. These two discs are packed with dynamic, chugging, and forward thinking jams that make you mesh all things PSR is passionate for.

Led Er Est – Dust On Common [MNQ099]

Dust On Common’ from Led Er Est (Sam De La osa, Shawn O’Sullivan and Owen Hutchinson) was originally released in 2009 by the seminal Brooklyn based record label Wierd Records. The band’s first full-length release showed the three piece clearly breaking out of the minimal synth underground they have been a vitally integral part of since its inception in Brooklyn to create an undeniably contemporary set of highly crafted and restrained, icily psychedelic pop songs.

VA – T.R.U. Halloween EP [TRUHWN001]

TX Connect’s Gavin Guthrie is a horror soundtrack enthusiast and regularly DJs gigs with that premise. So it’s no surprise that he’d produce an EP that implements these themes. The T.R.U. Halloween EP is a special edition EP that collects and compiles 5 tracks from Gavin’s inner circle that range from 80’s era horror soundtrack chase scene music to dark techno. With the recent surgence of Survive and Stranger Things, this EP fits right in the pocket and is slated for a Halloween 2016 release.
