Listen: Júníus Meyvant – Color Decay

:: Floating Harmonies!


.
Júníus Meyvant is the artist name of Vestmann Islands born singer-songwriter Unnar Gísli Sigurmundsson. As a young boy he was an eccentric to a small degree and he only loved two things, skateboarding and painting. Every now and then he asked the Muses if he should learn to play an instrument but his wild and free behavior terminated his dreams as he was quickly suspended out of music school. All through his teens he rambled on without even considering becoming a musician or even playing any instrument.

In his early twenties Unnar stumbled upon a beat up guitar at his parents’ house and started noodling around. By playing the guitar he managed to tame his inner beast and his sense for songs and melodies burst like rockets. The uncontrollable urge for writing music and constant flow of ideas kept him tossing and turning every night and day forever and a day. For a while he filtered his ideas through a band that didn’t live up to his creative requirements so he decided to undertake his alter ego Júníus Meyvant.

The sound of Júníus Meyvant is a rich and afflicted take on freaky folk pop with a familiar and soulful feel. The feeling you get from listening to Júníus equally as comfortable as resting under a thick wool blanket with a hot cup of cocoa in or even when one settles with an exotic beverage on a hot sandy beach far and away.

Listen: Hush Moss – It Takes A Lot

:: Nice one!

Hush Moss is a Berlin-based artist whose music will transport you to a time of plenty and flamboyance. The Debut album ‘It Takes A Lot’ hearkens back to the halcyon days of roller skates, coke mirrors and discotheques. You’ll catch yourself lying on a grand piano in the penthouse suite punch drunk in a pastel pink suit. It’s bright and velvety elevator jazz executed with a Steely Dan sense of irony, cradling you in the warm uterine wax blot of a lava lamp as your disembodied self shines out onto the marble floor.

The album was shaped by Hush Moss with the help of producers Captain Richard Beef and Young Yosef. Lead single ‘Slowly Disappear’ is luxurious with its crystalline synths and old school funky bass rhythms. The smooth, chorus-soaked guitars evoke the late Prince and the ensemble sounds like some creamy R&B number you’ll think has always existed. Hush Moss has a canny ear for nuance; the level of detail infecting these numbers is microscopic. A cursory listen to the title track reveals that every texture and every rhythm interlocks indulgently to evoke a maximalist’s aural paradise. [Press release via SSC]

The lineup: Eden Leshem (vocals, guitar), Aviv Meshulam (guitar, synth, percussion), Dekel Adin (bass), Guy Fleisher (drums), Guy Gefen (congas), Dolev Nahoom Sanbira (saxophone), Ziv Sobelman Yamin (keys).
