In everyday life Shane Burmania has the grateful task as event programmer for The Rest is Noise, a concert series for the weird and wonderful in the Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ. He also curates programs in contemporary music for the Korzo Theatre in The Hague. Shane has a soft spot for any music with hints of cosmic, futuristic and transcendental sounds. Here are Shane’s picks for April. Sit back and enjoy.
Joshua Abrams & Natural Information Society – “Sideways Fall” (2017)
I’ve been wanting to share this track here since I first heard it on a private link in December. At the risk of exaggerating: I think it’s one of the best records that came out this year.
Zs – “Corps” (2015)
A few years older but totally in line with Joshua Abrams & Natural Information Society.
Kara-Lis Coverdale – Grafts (2017)
Seemingly out of nothing Kara-Lis Coverdale shared her new album last week and its intoxicatingly beautiful.
Roosevelt – “Sea” (Young Marco remix) (2017)
A new old Young Marco remix is always good news.
Jakuzi – “Koca Bir Saçmalık” (2016)
John Maus lives in Istanbul.
Kreidler – “Boots” (2017)
Kreidler made a new album with a lot of good tracks. “Boots” is one of my favorites. Love the open sounds and the suspense.
Sega Bodega ft. Shygirl – “CC” (2017)
Sega Bodega. An artist with many sides. He also made three fantastic NTS-shows covering 30 years of Studio Ghibli soundtracks.
