Hold On Love – Azure Ray
Genre: Dream Pop
You’ll want to listen to this. Maria Taylor and Orenda Fink – the duo which make up Azure Ray – have beautifully poignant voices which gently carry you above the luminescent landscapes of Dream Pop, where tinkles of the piano and clean strums of the guitar mingle. The Drinks We Drank Last Night and Across The Ocean are some of the remarkable songs in Hold On Love which paints your morning with wispy clouds of calm.
Look To Me is my favourite in this 2003 album. Its sound reminiscent of a folk-song’s lament, it sings the tale of a broken family.
“We make it home this place is a mess.. The smell of cologne mixed with all that we own.. Not much I must confess.“
The song’s mourning for the family is so sweetly, yet brutally expressed.
A pity Azure Ray has since disbanded in 2004. However Fink and Taylor are still churning out their sounds, albeit on solo projects and other collaborations.
As promised, we give you our debut electronic mix, Speed Of Sound 001!

In addition to the eclectic mixtapes we have (Eclectica Mixtape), we are introducing another series of mixtapes for our listeners. Comprising of solely electronic sounds, each mix will consist of songs from a specific genre each week. These genres range from Chillout to Trance, to cater to the electricheads out there (that includes us!). The new series will be named Speed Of Sound aka SOS, and it will be released fortnightly. We will be uploading the 1st Speed Of Sound mix up shortly, at our MyPodCast website. Do check it out!
Genre: Experimental / Folktronica
Released in 2003, Rounds presents a palette of sounds designed to satisfy the experimental music lovers out there, but yet not entirely alienating the occasional listener.
Experimental music is a niche genre, and its often perceived as just noise to non-listeners. However, Four Tet has managed to package and deliver songs that, in their entirety, seem palatable to people outside of this niche circle. Combining glitchy, staccato samples with twinkly-toe melodies, this album can be viewed as an entry album for people who are starting out in this genre.

Music video for the song Davyan Cowboy by Boards Of Canada. That jump from way up there must have been amazing!
Stumbled upon this morbidly beautiful video on YouTube, set to the enchanting melodies of Four Tet‘s My Angel Rocks Back And Forth. We remain puzzled as to what the video exactly means, but we interpret it as the journey after one’s death, in a dark, fantasy-like manner.
PS: We’ll be doing a review soon on the amazing album, Rounds, that contains My Angel Rocks Back And Forth. Look out for it soon!
