Power Moves ‘Psycho Shower Scene’

DEBUT RELEASE FROM POWER MOVES

POWER MOVES is the blinged and bugged out beats project of composer/artist Austin Buckett (Golden Blonde, Pollen Trio) who recently relocated to Sydney after a year or so hopping between Berlin and New York City.

We’re proud to announce the release of POWER MOVES debut beat tape Psycho Shower Scene, a raw collage of collected field recordings, vocal interjections and left over album stems inspired by the dark absurdity of Tim and Eric, Chicago Footwork, dub, and modern gangster aesthetics. Also featuring fragmented cuttings from Wu – Tang Clan, Freddie Gibbs, Capone n Noreaga and Slum Village accapellas, the free EP exists both as a record in its own right and as a beat tape for future recycling and re-use by MC’s and producers alike.

Golden Blonde ‘Gwen’

Haven’t posted in a while so need to catch up on some things.

Here is the stunning debut Gwen from Sydney quartet Golden Blonde. A treat from start to finish, beautifully layered production paired together with tripping drums/percussion and haunting vocals. Clarinet & Gwen are my favourites. I don’t get the album artwork.

You can catch them opening the main stage @ Outsidein on the weekend.
