Tales From the Flowers EP

Toronto based composer biosphere makes Studio Ghibli inspired instrumental hiphop. Their latest EP, Tales From the Flowers, features collaborative production from lofi artists Kalaido, aqualina, and ibrahim making it a great introductory release for anyone who wants to delve into the world of record crackle and soul samples. This album plays like a deligtful adventure, hand drawn and loviningly detailed. It makes me think of all the hidden little gems in the world of anime that never seem to get referenced like Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals, Origin: Spirits of the Past, Jade Cocoon: Story of the Tamamayu or Wonderful Days (Sky Blue). Tales From the Flowers will spark memories of your...

Cherry Plum

Cherry Plum

"Cherry Plum" was first prepared as a flower essence by Dr. Edward Bach in 1935, as a remedy for the intense fear of losing control of one’s mind and, if I may,  couldn't we all do with a bit of that shit right now. This cute little release was dropped in 2018 by  ahiru あひる an electronic artist from The Netherlands who specializes in downtempo, chillwave beats and piano compositions.

Sounding like the score to and early Makoto Shinkai feature, this album is filled with...

Better, Lost

"Better, Lost" is the new full length release from Ireland's Breakbeat Heartbeat. 9 luminescent tracks built from acoustic guitar, authentic chip synths, amen breaks and chopped up vocals. These elements are never juxtaposed against each other the way you might expect but they are instead sewn together in a strikingly succinct manner. The tracks "Vega" and "It's Not The Same" were originally released on the "Spacetunes = Win" and "Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 7" compilations respectively, published of coarse by Chiptunes = WIN. She also contributed the single "Home" to the compilation "Super Duper Digi-Punk Vol.5" published here at KOF.  It has been a...

Goddess of the Hollow

Goddess of the Hollow

On April 14th, multi genre electronic producer City Girl dropped two full length releases in one day, "Sirens of the Formless" and "Goddess of the Hollow". While similar at a glance these releases differ wildly in execution and overall tone. Sirens of the Formless is laid back and sexy with percussive loops that do a perfect job of driving the songs forward without ever once overshadowing the melody work.  Goddess of the Hollow sees the return of long time collaborative partner tiffi, a singer/ songwriter from Sydney, Australia, who provides some very charming vocals on tracks 2, 3 and 7. These tracks, while fun and sparkly, are also dark...
