Phemale “A Root Error” (CD-R In Zine-Like Packaging)


Phemale A Root Error CD-R/Zine

I’ve touted the talents of Phemale (formerly known as Female, but changed slightly in deference and respect to the techno artist veteran that also goes by Female) before. Phemale is a New Haven pop artist that could easily be lumped in with much of the revival of the cold minimal sound. This latest effort is perhaps the least minimal (far from Phil Spector however), but certainly not the least cold (one could argue, I suppose). These songs are good. They’ll be out on cassette soon as well if you don’t mind a little wait and that’s your prefered format. I really don’t need to speak too much more on this because you can listen to it all here: http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Female/A_Root_Terror

Leila U&I

[Buy Online From RSR]
Iranian-born and London-based electronic artist Leila Arab has been active since 1993, when she got her start working with Björk. Leila began releasing her own records five years later, and her newest full-length is as energetic as it is dark and experimental, with loads of vibrating laser synth, bleeps, bloops and buzzes amidst a wide variety of thick, scattered and downright challenging-to-describe beats. Personally, it reminded me the most of stuff like Daft Punk and Digitalism (though with a lot more experimentation at points.) The songs range from irresistibly kinetic and danceable (“Activate I,” “Welcome To Your Life”) to druggy and nebulous (“In Consideration”) and even outright rhythmic noise that reminds me of Merzbow’s Merzbeat album (“Interlace.”) Her solo instrumental tracks stand great on their own, but American-born and Berlin-based performance artist Mt. Sims adds even more scope by lending his spacey, echoed voice to six tracks.
