That being said our other highlight releases for this week prove to be a selection of listening gems you have to try for yourself.

First up, we have an interesting entry from the marching band sensation known as Meute. They have decided to rework the original track Miss You by Denmark’s Trentemöller. It’s a special arrangement of instruments taking up the electronic beat and you can check out their dockside video by clicking on the image below.

Speaking of Danes! Our very own Jacob Bellens is back to whet your appetite ahead of his fourth album release Trail of Intuition. His newest track Renegade finds him staying true to form with his sound drifting in to a personal songwriting space influenced by both synthpop and electronica.

Finally, winging its way over to us from the sunny reaches of Los Angeles is Potions newest offering Mother. Having run under various guises in the past as a minimal techno and IDM producer, Mother is the next evolution of this process under the more dynamic conditions of an LP.

“There’s the glimmering fanfare of Sun Vow, and the off kilter whimsy of Heart II for starters. When We Saw The Strange Lights and Everyone’s Girl explores Potions’ deeper side with their sprawling pads while Heart III brings the album to an epic, detuned end.”

Und wieder Oktober
Superheld (Quasilectric)
Und wieder Oktober – dieser Bandname hält, was er verspricht: melancholisch schönen Pop, durch Cello und Geige unterstrichen. Bunt und wechselhaft – mal stürmisch, mal ruhig, mal lebensfroh, mal traurig. Die neue EP “Superheld” zeigt, dass die Alben “Tag X” und “Könige der Stadt” der Kölner Band nicht nur zufällig gut gelungen waren. Vielmehr wird jetzt klar, dass Und wieder Oktober einen festen Platz in der deutschen Popmusik einnimmt. “Superheld” beschreibt das Über-sich-hinaus-Wachsen und die übermenschliche Liebe, die Eltern zu ihrem Kind empfinden, kann aber durchaus auch als klassischer Lovesong verstanden werden.

Grown Heart (About To Shine)
Moglebaum ist das Bandprojekt des deutschen Electronica Produzenten Moglii, ein warmer Electronica meets Trip Hop Sound mit weiblichen Vocals.
