Morly: “Drone Poem (In Defense of My Muse)” MP3 Stream

Jul 30, 2015

A couple of weeks back, lo-fi composer Morly shared "And Sooner Than We Know It...", a stirring, wordless hymnal that utilized distant vocal coos, simple piano lines, and delicate percussion to convey an understated sense of optimism. "Drone Poem (In Defense of My Muse)," a new track which you can stream below, employs a similar palette (and a few choice words) to a much more disquieting effect. Both songs are featured on Morly's debut EP, In Defense of My Muse, which is slated for an August 14 release via Cascine.

Jacco Gardner

“Find Yourself (Richard Norris Remix)” MP3 Stream

Jul 23, 2015

"Find Yourself" is arguably the most concise pop song on Jacco Gardner's Hypnophobia LP, but London-based producer Richard Norris has sought to change that. Norris' remix slows and elongates the track to twice its original length, stretching the song beyond the seven-minute mark and fully exploiting its cinematic possibilities. Stream it below. Hypnophobia is out now on Polyvinyl.
