danton-eeprom-kissing-in-traffic

1. Danton Eeprom

“Kissing In Traffic” is a postcard written and sent to himself the last time he visited that place so he could look at it when it all becomes a bit much; a true memento, and a genuine Souvenir. [audio mp3="http://designcollector.net/files/danton-eeprom-kissing-in-traffic.mp3"][/audio] Or check the different version on Souvenir's Music label Soundcloud:

nicolas-jaar-sergei-parajanov

2. Nicolas Jaar Creates Soundtrack to Sergei Parajanov's "The Color of Pomegranates" 1969

The acclaimed New York-based musician Nicolas Jaar has uploaded a Soviet avant-garde film from 1969, called “The Color Of Pomegranates”, created by surrealistic director Sergei Parajanov (1924-1990) to Youtube along with his own original score. “The Color Of Pomegranates” is a biography of the Armenian ashug Sayat-Nova (King of Song) that attempts to reveal the poet's life visually and poetically rather than literally. Nicolas Jaar leveled up the whole story to the new surreal level by reworking the orginal sound with his soundtrack 'Pomegranates' (2015).

tame-impala-cos-man

5. Tame Impala – Cause I’m a Man

“At the chorus, Parker repeats the phrase “I’m a man, woman,” which could be construed as problematic. Reading those words out of context, it looks like he’s using gender as a catch-all archetype. But as he sings in his tender, featherlight falsetto, he’s not boasting about his masculinity—he’s attempting to acknowledge that sometimes, he messes up just like anybody else.” (Pitchfork)

VIII

fkatwigs-figure8

8. FKA twigs – Figure 8

FKA Twigs dropped her second song off M3LL155X EP, which is expected to release later this year. "I actually finished the EP last year around November, but it's just taken me a while to complete the videos and get my headspace together," she said when asked if she intentionally released a new song after her last planned performance at Lollapalooza. "And, you know, I just believe in doing things right... It's not a deliberate thing, it's just sometimes the planets align and it kind of works out that way."

 

 

IX

junior-boys-big-black-coat

9. Junior Boys – Big Black Coat

"Big Black Coat", the Junior Boys' first new material since their 2011 album It's All True, presents a side of the duo that we've rarely heard before. Having soaked up the influence of Detroit techno at its most severe, they sound almost tough..

kedr-livanskiy

10. Kedr Livanskiy – Sgoraet

Russian female composer and singer Kedr Livanskiy (English: "Lebanese Cedar") is inspired by Autechre, Aphex Twin and Boards of Canada, but with the lyrics and mood of Mazzy Star in her young age. No doubts she is my favourite and latest edition to the Top Music 2015.

 

 

Hope you are enjoying this Year in Music!
