Song of the Day: Rainfall – Fish Basket

I don’t usually feature instrumentals here on NEW LEASE MUSIC, but I thought I try something a little different with Polish experimental trio FISH BASKET‘s piece entitled ‘Rainfall’. As hump day is just hours away, I thought you guys would fully appreciate the sublimely tranquil live instrumentation.

‘Rainfall’ is taken from their self-titled album, which contains over an hour of melancholic and melodic pieces, with relaxing riffs which can get all heavy and dark.

Have a listen to the live version of ‘Rainfall’, performed at their single’s release party last month.

Song of the Day: So Fly – Fly Von


After a very lengthy hiatus, one of NEW LEASE MUSIC’s longstanding staples – FLY VON – starts afresh this year with two releases – ‘High Fly’ and ‘So Fly’.

‘So Fly’ has made it to today’s top spot for its afterhours-trap combo. Check it out below…and while you’re at, why not check out the downtempo ‘High Fly’ right here.

 

 

Song of the Day: Yuri – Esofact

Urple Eeple (Peter Farr) and Isturite’s (Kevin Welch) aka ESOFACT’s  latest track ‘Yuri’, leads the way for their self-titled debut EP, out via Chillage Records.

Their EP possess a conducive yet groovy production, coming together with small interesting echoing elements throughout the four tracks. ‘Yuri’ shines out amongst the tracks, with an  frantic pace set to a waterfall of electronic sounds, without it becoming too overwhelming or messy to the prospective listener.

Based in California and Los Angeles respectively, Farr and Welch met in their teens and would go to endless festivals together, teaching each other about music production throughout the years. They both played the guitar as youngsters and later fell in love with electronic music through early rave culture. They eventually decided to collaborate and released their first single as Esofact in 2014. ‘I’ve Got That’ was groundbreaking and began to define ‘future’ as a new way of approaching musical compositions….

Album Review: Beautiful Sin – Some Kind Of Illness

Hailing from Manchester, brothers Paul and Mark Hinks – aka indie rock outfit, SOME KIND OF ILLNESS – latest album, ‘Beautiful Sin’, could be described as smooth as a Sunday morning with a tranquil introduction through instrumentals ‘Within A Shadow’ and ‘Ghost’ with the latter featuring a slight sinister spin on the album’s theme.

Third offering ‘A Moment In Time’, first offers a full set of vocals, that’s so smoothing, to the equally smooth and inmate setting. ‘A Lament Reprise’ adds another dimension to the album with its slight electronic drive to the production, uplifting a bed of atmospheric soundscapes similar to what’s offered in the previous productions. ‘Beautiful Sin’ also interrupts the album’s soothing vibe with the distorted and racing guitar riffs breaking through the production, giving off a feather-light and (perhaps 60’s-inspired) Americana feel.

The album concludes with ‘7 Days’, which ventures into a more sinister side of indie rock, with guest vocalist Jenny Jen shedding some light and sweetness to the whole arrangement.

Through their fourth album, SOME KIND OF ILLNESS has effortlessly combine two worlds – indie and rock music –  in a way that’s accessible to those who aren’t massive fans of the aforementioned genres. Have a listen to ‘Beautiful Sin’ below:
