Bobmoekill‘s “All Good Things” starts out with a very promising introduction. The harmony builds wonderfully with the drum tracks tastefully added underneath. Gradually, the textures fill out, and at about 1 minute the buildup pays off with the tasteful drums turning into a deep groove.

The opening title track is a pretty good barometer of the bobmoekill style, which seems to alternate between R&B, pop electronica, ambient electronic.  Although sometimes the tracks felt a ...

The music found on Pilot Violet’s new EP, "Nite Farm" is a well produced homage and revisit to the more soulful synthpop of the 80’s. Each track on the seven-song project blends that era’s simple synth patterns and beats with the cinematic vocals found in recent pop acts like CHRVCHES and The XX. On tracks like "Ordinary Day" the instrumentals are skimmed to their essentials, which serves as a nice contrast to the ...
