YOUNG MAGIC is the sonic pairing between Indonesian vocalist, Melati Malay and Australian producer, Isaac Emmanuel. Although currently based in New York, the eclectic outfit has recorded music whilst traversing the four corners of the earth. On May 6th, the duo present a new gift from their explorations in their sophomore release, Breathing Statues, out on Carpark Records. The album navigates through a labyrinth of phantom harmonies and crystalline beats, with cover artwork by longtime collaborator Leif Podhajsky. Recorded in fragments through Morocco, France, Czech Republic, Australia, Iceland and finished in their home studio in New York, Breathing Statuesis a lush and distinctive collection that colors the world a new soundscape. EMILY REO Brought some hi-fi touches to the traditionally lo-fi world of with her record, Olive Juice out last Fall on Elestial Sound. She removed some of the sonic gauze from her earlier work to reveal more rhythm and colorful synths. Noah Klein, who makes music as CUDDLE FORMATION, opens the night up with his take on dreamy pop tunes which aim at something that leaves the bedroom behind. Looking to be somehow unifying rather than reclusive. This is music that unifies the private life and domestic into a progressive experience.
