Breakbeats: Mo Kolours – Bakiraq

The latest signing to the brilliant One-Handed Music label, Mo Kolours produces extremely evocative music through a more minimalist approach to production. The influences are varied, including house, hip hop and soul, although Mo Kolours is able to create an utterly unique synthesis accompanied with a distinctive blues vocal style.

Breakbeats: Chad VanGaalen – I’m A Witness

Taken from the ‘Your Tan Looks Supernatural’ EP, released to raise emergency funds for Japan, I’m A Witness showcases Chad VanGaalen’s unique and compelling songwriting style. Filled with layered guitar lines, Chad’s plaintive, and poetic singing, heavy percussion and reverberated space, it bridges Chad VanGaalen’s experimental folk recordings from 2008 LP ‘Soft Airplane’ with the more refined rock styles of new album ‘Diaper Island’, released this month on the Sub Pop label.
