We haven’t heard really anything from the New York electronic duo Golden Filter in 2013, until right now – Penelope Trappes and Stephen Hindman have released a half-hour long collection of demos called Unselected Works Vol 1 as a holiday gift to their fans. Demos or not, they sound totally fantastic, with Trappes‘ eerie, distant, sometimes-edited vocals providing the perfect foil to Hindman’s minimalist, film-noir synth programming. Apparently, Unselected Works functions as something to tide us over until the duo can release a proper sophomore full length record – like we’ve seen happen with so many artists we love in 2013, it’s being held up by issues beyond the band’s control. In the meantime, check out the demos – you won’t be disappointed.
mp3: The Golden Filter – Unselected Works Vol 1
Phil Elverum’s music as Mount Eerie never made much sense to me until I moved…
He played every track on the record, including french horn.
The newest from Dan Boeckner’s latest post-Wolf Parade project.
Our first taste from Kintsugi, their first album since the departure of Chris Walla.
We’ve got video evidence of the recording of “Jeopardy.”
That song Kanye shared to some Important Radio People the other day? Yeah, it’s on…
