Coming Soon: Active Child’s ‘You Are All I See’

Active Child makes dreamy synthscapes pinned on electro pop and classic harp sounds – this much we learnt from his gorgeous 2010 EP, Curtis Lane. The LA based musician will release his full length debut, You Are All I See on Friday August 26 – recorded from his bedroom between American tours with James Blake and School of Seven Bells. We love the vocal builds & cool hip hop backbeat. Download it here, stream it below.

Out Today: Leader Cheetah’s ‘Lotus Skies’ July 14th 2011 By brooke

Out Today: Leader Cheetah’s ‘Lotus Skies’

With a national album tour penned for August & September, Splendour just around the corner & a set of dates with Gomez, it’s all go for Adelaide’s Leader Cheetah. And today, their huge new album, recorded in the summer of 2010 with Scott Horscroft, is released in Aus/NZ. Titled Lotus Skies after the almost-mariachi rock freak out that is track 8, this album takes the earthy Americana of their 2009 Sunspot Letters debut and grows and grows, with driving, slightly darker guitars (Golden Age, So Save Me), classic alt-country cuts (Crawling Up A Landslide), our favourite LC song ever (Our Love) and the  big, brash firecracker of a finale, None Shall Pass. With original artwork from Tony Cran it is all Australian, but a total world-class collection of songs. Stream the album, out now, via Pedestrian TV.
