Deadfile by Deadfile (Athens, Greece)
I believe the single ‘Consulting Maps That Lie‘ has gotten a first look on Dingus already, but this full EP from Deadfile is just far too superb to pass over without some consideration. The 7 minute and 53 second opening track, ‘This Hollowed Land‘ is mystical, as if emerging from the fog and thick low hanging trees of the swamps of the bayou. As you slip weightlessly up to the decrepit wooded dock, you are drawn from the old rickety row boat out into the heavy fog, drifting away, joining the other lost and forgotten souls waiting here in the mist, forever. @TheSnakeRecords

I Do Know How You Feel EP by The Boy Besides (April 1, 2012)
I Do Know How You Feel, the declarative statement from Grecian producer The Boy Besides is a departure from his disorienting precedent that welcomes a more sensible format, something you can nod your head too. And with lines like: “I like dogs, better than men, and cats better than dogs, and myself best of all, drunk in my underwear, looking out the window.” – well, I’ll keep listening.
Κασετίνα by Κασετίνα (December 31, 2011)
In some sort of dissonant, pop protest, Κασετίνα twists her child-like voice through instrumental caverns like a lost soul. The Greek musician winds naratives that bend the imaginations auditory limits with odd pairing. The less exposed ear might recognize these leaps as incorrect, or “off” but rest assured, there is a pattern based beauty reserved for those willing to peel through the layers.
