Overmono unleashes their debut album here on XL Recordings. This album represents a remarkable culmination of their musical journey so far with 12 compelling tracks, with brothers Tom & Ed Russell taking listeners on a captivating sonic odyssey that seamlessly blends a diverse range of electronic genres. 'Good Lies' showcases their impeccable sound design and experimental approach: from the evocative vocal-led breaks of the title track, or the glassy-eyed IDM of "Walk Thru Water" feat. St. Panther, to the infectious 2-step attitude of "Is U" and the future UK sonics of "Calling Out" - this is the sound of one of the most original contemporary live electronic acts.
The latest release from Frankey & Sandrino does exactly what it says on the tin. Translated from German as 'the leap', it sees them dive into the deeper end of house and techno. Fittingly, the title track features repetitive vocals and a hypnotic chord sequence coming together over a rickety rhythm. The end result is a tripped-out track that defies categorisation. "Libelula" follows a different path. It sees the duo conjure up what could be an incompatible fusion in less capable hands. At the heart of the track are an ominous bass and pared back drums. These elements provide the basis for atmospheric synths and bleepy tones that swirl effortlessly through the arrangement.
