Fake Expectations by Adam Wells

Which colour is best? Red or Blue? – maybe the worlds just not quite that simple, and we should aim for a blend.

Fake Expectations by Adam Wells, is an animation about two artists who compete for the top prize at the annual art competition.

Premiering online ahead of everywhere else, for all to enjoy.

Swimming TV :: Time Freeze

Swimming TVTime Freeze” // Label: Cosmonostro // Rel. 26 May 2014 // Artwork: Yawn.

Swimming TV lands at Cosmonostro HQ with six tracks of pure lysergic bliss, perfect for those long hazy summer days in the park. The ‘Time Freeze’ EP lives up to its name, slowing down the chaos of modern existence to a grinding halt, and transporting us to a tranquil plane of psychedelic sounds, where the demands of the ever-rotating clock hands become a distant memory.

We open with the trickling lo-fi vibra-loops of ‘Blue Sky’ before moving into the EPs title track, a reflective and ever-morphing lesson in meditative beat-sculpting. ‘Gold’ keeps the kaleidoscopic vibes flowing, with shimmering reverb-soaked textures that bring to mind the sonic palettes of Teebs or Shigeto from across the Atlantic.

‘I’m Stuck Forever’ brings the energy levels up a touch, with swelling low-end and driving, scattered percussion, before ‘Fun In The Sun’ lays us back down gently on a wave of sidechained static and cosmic arps. Also included on the EP is bonus track ‘Vaporclouds’, another slice of meditative dopeness from the Dortmund wunderkind, where layers of organic percussion are gradually built up over soft arpeggiated pads, rising to a stunning crescendo of chords before drifting away like a solitary passing cloud.”

Various Artists :: Mad​-​Hop Compilation Vol​.​8

Mad​-​Hop Vol​.​8 // Label: Mad-Hop Records // Released 28 May 2014 // Artwork: Letter D.

“Kicking off this summer with another international episode of the ‘Mad-Hop’ compilation series, the 8th in line is full of new tunes and supported by 3 gigs in Poland with artist such as Kixnare, Minoo, Zova and En2ak and our spacial guest Slugabed.

Expect crazy tunes on ‘Mad-Hop vol.8′ from Pixelord and Emufucka, some chill out from Daisuke Tanabe, Killing Skills, Lomovolokno, Julien Mier, Evil Needle, 1000names and a couple of fresh Mc’s: straight from Holland Joe Kickass and homies from Venezuela Burguez ft. Jizor.

In this edition, we joined forces with two other labels: GERGAZ (SVK) with GLGN and JIMMY Pé label; a small community of people with a need to present their music or other related work. The label’s main focus is to release a non-commercial work of unknown artists or projects.

We’re also working with Beat Broke (USA), an Austin, TX-based record label that works with a lot of European artists, supported by Leadesmen Dutch electronic duo who create dark, pulsating soundscapes layered with bubbling synths and pounding percussion (similar team as seen on Mad-Hop vol.5 ( Mad-Love )!)”

Moonfishing by David Michael Friend

A short puppet film by David Michael Friend; part of Heather Henson’s “Handmade Puppet Dreams” series.

A fisherman’s hobby of sculpting is interrupted when he must perform his monthly task of illuminating the town he lives in. With container on back, fishing pole in hand, and his current carving stashed in his pocket, the lonely soul goes searching for the perfect spot to catch the moon’s shimmering sister. But his shattered hope for exchanging his catch for the villager’s fellowship returns him to his art for companionship.

Chinti by Natalia Mirzoyan

The shore on which little ant lives is a narrow slip of ground all filled with trash embound by a wall from one side and a river from the other. Little ant tries to fit into the strict daily routine of the ant family, but finds it really hard for him.

The main character’s world changes greatly when he finds a small piece of paper – a ticket with the picture of Taj Mahal. Ant falls in love with the gorgeous architecture of this building. He understands that it exists somewhere, but it is very far away. So, having no idea of the actual size of the building, the ant decides to construct the same building on his own shore, and make it look exactly the same as the original.

The film is made of different types of tea leaves • Directed & animated by Natalia Mirzoyan.
