The Cabin Project – Come Rain [Official Video] / Debut Album ‘The Cabin Project’ (2014/09/01)

2 Sep

:: Stunning song, truly amazing album!

The two singer/songwriters Kira Skov [vocals] and Marie Fisker [vocals/guitar] have joint forces for a new musical venture named The Cabin Project. Already in spring 2013, they isolated themselves in cabin deep in Canada’s woods together with Oliver Hoiness [guitar] and Ned Ferm [sax/flute/keys]. In collaboration with renowned producer/engineer Mark Howard, the four recorded The Cabin Project’s self-titled debut, an album of wonderfully stripped-back songs which is out for us enjoy now.

The Cabin Project was released digitally on September 01, 2014 via Stunt Records /Sundance Music. You can buy the set of ten songs from iTunes. A preview of the album is streaming at (via Wimp). Head over and have a listen, it’s a real beauty.

Come Rain is the amazing first single taken from The Cabin Project. The song comes with a beautiful video filmed, produced and directed by Katja Boom that you can check out above. The Cabin Project have a handful of upcoming live dates. Check out the schedule and the album teaser below.

Christian Löffler – Notes [Sieren Remix] / ‘Young Alaska Remixes’ (2014/08/29)

31 Aug

:: This track is pure magic.


I’m a big fan of Christian Löffler’s delicate electronic productions ever since the release of his acclaimed full-length debut A Forest in 2012. This year saw him submitting his sophomore LP Young Alaska, easily drawing on his debut when it comes to quality and success. Some of the tracks on Young Alaska got remixed by other artists, and some of those remixed found way into official release. Two weeks ago, a remix of Notes by Berlin based UK producer Matt Adams aka Sieren premiered over at Italian music magazine Soundwall. I feel in love with his take on Notes on first listen, and I’m really glad that it’s now streaming for free on his Soundcloud, listen above.

Sieren’s remix of Löfflers’s original track Notes was first released on August 14, 2014 via KI Records. For the past two weeks, it was available exclusively on Beatport. Since Friday (August 29), the Young Alaska Remixes are available in every shop, including iTunes.

The release also includes a remix of the Young Alaska lead single All Comes feat. Gry by Berlin based Italian producers Alessandro and Federico Fognini aka Mind Against. Listen to their take on All Comes below.
