Six months after releasing their debut album 'Evergreen' grecian dream pop duo Plastic Flowers return with a new outtake from their LP2 recordings, which is coming out soon.
'Now She's Gone' is a melancholic electronic piece accompanied by taped sounds of a TR-808, punchy bass lines and ethereal synthesizers. Subtle guitars and echoed vocals form a strange kind of transition between utopia and dystopia that's constantly changing with no destination. The lyrics talk about love, feelings, relationships and bad habits. we all know what this is about, right? Plastic Flowers have previously cited Dirty Beaches and Notwist as their major influences, you can clearly hear them in 'Now She's Gone'.

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.

Two months after releasing "Empty Eyes," Plastic Flowers return with a new song and video of a take-away show filmed by Senselens.
"In You I'm Lost" builds a dark environment of lo-fi guitars and drum machine, combining hazy vocals with pop elements. In the end you realize that love has always been there but still you are lost between the words.

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.
