track for today… lejsovka & freund 'mold on canvas (detail)'

A pleasing video to accompany a snippet from Lejsovka & Freund's fantastic album Mold On Canvas, released in a limited edition of 100 super-clear vinyl. They describe themselves as 'DIY shitty classical', but it's actually rather beautiful electronics-warped post-classical music that brings to mind both Rachel's and Philip Glass. Make sure to watch the video in situ on the Bark & Hiss website.

track for today… cuts 'cuts 01'

The first track from a five-track EP released on 'flesh-coloured' vinyl by Invada Records. CUTS is an audiovisual artist whose sonics are like the blackest shoegaze music treated to a dark ambient, semi-industrial going over.

track for today… the rhubarb triangle 'wakefield city blues'

The absurdly-named Rhubarb Triangle are actually named for a thing that I never knew existed: a 9-square-mile triangle in West Yorkshire famous for producing early forced rhubarb!. Their debut 7" includes this freakbeat-esque organ-driven stomper as well as the considerably more Cramps-ish 'Bloodhound'. Find out more at their website. Cool cats.

The synth-y, psych-y 'Waveforms' is taken from the superb new Leisure Birds album, Tetrahedron, jointly released through Deep Distance, Totally Gross National Product and Moon Glyph. Leisure Birds are from Minneapolis. Leisure Birds are good.
