Sal Dulu – “Antasma” // ARTIST

Sal Dulu’s track “Antasma” begs you not to go and try to comply but you are being pulled back and forth as you groove to guitar licks, saxophone, and smooth vocals. It bounces enough to make you move, but is ideally enjoyed while sitting with an adult beverage and closed eyes as you daydream about distant memories and dancing figures.

Sal Dulu is an electronic producer from Dublin whose track “Duluoz Dream” we featured on VINYL MOON: Reveries.

Archie Langley – “Magpie” // Juana Gómez

If any of you are wondering what a “Magpie”is, it’s a long tailed crow like the cover art that you see above. A “Magpie” is also a word that is used in comparisons, specifically referencing to a person who collects things of little value or a person who chatters with no purpose. Archie Langley is the exact opposite with his single, “Magpie” as he sings with passion. He delivers such a strong indie-folk track that you start to wonder if you’re listening to either Iron & Wine or Mumford & Sons. By all means Archie Langley, you’re collecting a fan of your music, and that’s pretty valuable.

TWINKIDS – “Jigoku Tengoku” // Patrick Kramer

“Jigoku Tengoku”, which means “hell or heaven” in Japanese, is a promise from one lover to another that he’ll follow them anywhere to be with them. Heaven and hell are also the two extremes he’s putting his partner through – “this time”, “believe me”, empty promises. TWINKIDS flesh out this track’s modern-yet-poetic narrative with care, placing coked-out rants and the 2AM texts between lines about amethyst loving and the closing refrain of the other half of this relationship, a powerful realization of “I keep making the same old mistake”.

Deft lyricism aside, “Jigoku Tengoku” is a massive pop tune, with gargantuan drums topped only by the snarling synth line in the closing chorus. The whole thing sounds massive, so crank up your stereo and mash that repeat button – this one will stick with you for a while.

For more TWINKIDS, get back into “Dreamer” from VINYL MOON Volume 009: Shifting States.
