Dumbo Gets Mad’s track "Radical Leap" is a lazy psychedelic dream of crunchy guitars, a bouncing bass line, and a butterfly stroke in the roughest river off to the tallest waterfall. Radical Leap makes me feel okay with the coming frigid winter, it makes me feel okay with change, to fly off the tallest waterfall to a totally new place. Get lost in it.
You can now stream their full length album "Quantum Leap" for free on Soundcloud or Bandcamp. While you're listening, check out the album's writeups in Impose and Art Wedndesday, and purchase the CD/Vinyl from Bad Panda.

Oskar Schuster is a young composer located in Berlin, Germany. His songs without words evocate a fairytale-world, strange and surreal. Oskar’s soft, elegantly structured compositions evoke certain similarities with such artists as Yann Tiersen and Detektivbyrån, yet evolve into his own captivating soundscapes.

Bad Panda Reords has recently released a debut EP from London-based producer/musician Everlone. Samples rise and pulse to distorted beats, as haunting fractured vocals carry you. Atmosphere is key in these tracks, and nothing in the sound takes you away from the songs.

Introducing London’s Hypermagic, a forest of echoes and polychrome phonographic vibrations inspired by acts like Grouper, Emeralds, Do Make Say Think and Teen Daze. Layers of rustic beats, rusty clicks, shrouded voices, kaleidoscope reverbered guitars and rheumatic feedback. After 4 well-received EPs and a full-length (everything on free download) here are new sonic textures and rhytmes that will ride you along a time warping tunnel headed straight for the moon. Stay tuned for more music at Magic Rub Cassettes and check out the interview.

Coming all the way from the sunny Sardinia with his electro-hip-pop project (inspired by Anticon and Morr music but slightly club oriented), he re-located in Venice, Rome and now Lisboa. He played drums for several years, studied trombone, talked slowly with the piano and talked a little bit faster with computers, ending up playing just before of acts like Caribou, Jamie Lidell, Apparat, Ladytron, Fuck Buttons and more.
Deeply Wrong Merits EP is on free download on Bandcamp just in exchange of an email address and it features remixes from another cool Bad Panda artist (#71) Venice and Acid Andee and two acapellas version ready to be remixed!

Bad Panda Records has been in love with loop-based music lately. They have never hidden the love for Monster Rally and they recently enjoyed new albums by Tiger & Woods and The Field. And they always loved William Basinski. It's now time for some Nineteen Eight Eight love.

The Parish of Little Clifton is a 19 years-old multi instrumentalist from Canada. Started as an acoustic folk project, within the last year he's been working on electronic-based music, trying to keep the organic elements of real instruments by using samples. After an EP on Cultus Vibes (Teen Daze's label), Septemberish 7'' comes out on Bad Panda Records and it is a taste of the LP - Portia - that will be released this fall and that will feature his sister, Hannah Flom, Teen Daze, Manitoulin (HAHA) and Bank Heist.
What The Parish of Little Clifton has become now is a way for me to be intimate and honest with myself. I have realized that once a piece of music is heard by another (especially listened to by another) it is no longer mine. For now that song is someone else's to emote to. What "The Parish" is now, in some senses, is a world that i am sharing with other people. The songs that i write (especially in the lyrical ones) have very intimate connections to realities in my own life. So sometimes i will hide the vocals in the mix so that only i know what i am saying. That way when i play a song live or listen to it with friends, everyone else will familiarize themselves with the melody perhaps--or the mystery, all the while i am being reminding of some truth or reality that i have been opened to.
Taking inspiration from the summer-spots, these two songs are dedications to a very-present boyhood. Inspired by two lakes and the countless times i have found joy in their creation. "It's Okay, Roseanne" brings about emotions that i can pinpoint to the very afternoon that i experienced them, jumping off cliffs into a semi-warm lake. "Echo Island" is a beat-heavy wash of hope and mystery that has very often visited me in the last few months as i prepare for the next season in my life.

Fruit Flesh is the solo project of twenty-year old Jake Tobin. It's about Florida and people as animals as people. We can introduce his music like a combination of Panda Bear, Sufjan Stevens and tUnE-yArDs.
