Keiko Tsuda are giving away their new masterpiece Saké Duo Kit for free. It’s sort of similar to Bad Dudes.. and then again.. maybe not. It’s a two-man guitar vs. drums project full of electronic fun. Highly recommended, anyways! The old brilliant 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 is free as well:

Download here

And from a Japanese sounding band name to an actual Japanese band: And someone who started sounding like Trans AM or UI… whatever… they have a synthesizer now. But LITE has always sounded different from themselves. And beware… beautiful promo video ahead..

airpeople_the_golden_cityHey you! Get you speakers out! It’s time for some Airpeople! And it’s time for me to admit that 9/10 bands on this blog have no singers… jolly brilliant, if you ask me.

The Golden City is their debut and a soothing collection of 9 varied instrumental rock tracks. What I think Airpeople does well (besides from reminding me of FMTM) is their catchy surface combined with a post-rockish layering of guitars… without degrading themselves to the daunting, cliché post-rock buildups, that is. Instead, most of the tracks are kept on the lighter, refreshing and positive side – like sharing the energy and dynamics of team spirit and combined, creative minds. Or as Flo from the band says:

When we started with Airpeople we had a rough idea of the creative process, not so much of the way it should sound. A focus or the idea behind Airpeople is to experiment with all kinds of styles and to create music thats exciting for us to play. We’ve known each other for a long time before Airpeople, love to play music and trying new things keeps it interesting and fun. There are so many things you can try and we like to take our time for that. So far we never had a clear picture of the song before we started working on something new. Sometimes there is a vague idea for the atmosphere, everybody plays what he likes and then we see how the pieces can become a song. In the end the song can be very different from the original idea.

Visit their site and have a listen to the first track of the album. And no, the oil drums aren’t real.

Debut is coming up on really soon on Hello Sir, and without any further information, Antarctic has put the first two tracks, Pasea La Salamandria being a re-recording from their demo. If you liked The Littlest Viking earlier this year (or Fago.Sepia for that matter), you’re going to enjoy this a lot.
