Thanks to Rebecca, Danielle and Stuart at the Freakzone for inviting us to talk about the label this week on 6 and their work supporting grass roots projects like this – Feature starts around 45 mins with Carl talking about the who what and why’s
“Despite the brilliantly murky production, the star of the record is definitely Bunny Hoova’s vocals. Her attitude, and anger, and sadness, and seductive whisper – it’s an impeccable document of the contorted mix of hope and despair that defines being young in Britain in 2019. These are late night headphone sing alongs that are as hard to hold on to as fog – which only makes them all the more tempting to stick on a loop.” – Tristan Bath
Bunny Hoova is releasing album Longing via Preston’s Them There Records on July 26, with preview track ‘Lazy_Easy’ premiering on AQNB today. The Rotterdam-born, Manchester-based musician produces the kind of garage-influenced avant-pop and broken-down soul similar to artists like Micachu and Tirzah, whom she’s also supported on stage.
Tiny Mix Tapes’ Hydroyoga gets into ‘Lunar Influence’
“…Steeped, eminent, tangled, with its nuances dangling and dripping, Lunar Influence throws splotches of sound into outer space and lets them fall onto the surface of an exoplanet. We listen to it in the flow of some sort of semi-linguistic space: an architecture that beckons for a language to sprout from a tongue, yet that tongue does not move and cannot speak because it is not in a mouth. There is no mouth. It’s like having something to say, and instead of saying it, you reach for your 404 and start to envision how it would sound instead.”
