Arkadaslar! Jakuzi don’t sound like any other band out there right now, most certainly not like any other band on City Slang. They've released their first single "Koca Bir Saçmalik" today, from the album “Fantezi Müzik” out March 24th via City Slang... more on the release after the jump, but first, stream/preorder the album or watch the video here:

It boasts, an effortless flow, reflected in Wästberg’s vocal delivery, which shifts from falsetto to a groove-like spoken word which circles […] READ ON
Roger Sellers is a lot of things. He’s a minimalist composer with a knack for making hypnotic, enveloping songs from a few repeated musical phrases. He’s a gifted musician who is mostly self-taught, having abandoned formal study because it was draining the life from his work. He’s a self-described disciple of Phil Collins. What he is not, however — despite multiple press reports to the […] READ ON
The story of Gold Panda’s journey from an acclaimed debut record to now, as he prepares to release his third full length album, is an entirely circular one.
