Saxsyndrum starting 2015 right with a cover of Lykke Li‘s Dance, Dance, Dance featuring guest vocals by Sea Oleena. Oleena’s voice moves between airy, and cutting, blending perfectly with Saxsyndrum’s very delicate rendition of the track. Check it out via Consequence of Sound.
The ever gracious Chart Attack have premiered the new video for Saxsyndrum’s Maceonectar, a vibrant and pulsing saxophone odyssey visually narrated by none other than Frances Adair McKenzie.
For me, listening to this piece is like a walk at sunrise (post-meditation) through a tropical aviary. The bird song elements and their disarming inorganic quality are what inspired the video’s looping, giffy style and the bright, bouncy, flickering and lo-fi aesthetic. – Frances Adair via Chart Attack
Exclaim! just unleashed the stream of Saxsyndrum‘s upcoming SXD_EP, and just in time for the launch of our brand new ANL web shoppe! Over the coming weeks we’ll be getting our back catalogue up and adding some of the upcoming releases from ¡FLIST!, Hua Li, and Saxsyndrum! Check out their EP below:
This follow up to last year’s Future Circus sees the duo at odds, each taking to their own side of the limited cassette. Nick’s drum side brings the listener into a geological expedition of percussion, bringing out the hidden musicality of the rhythm section. The sax side has all the honk, and skronk you’d expect densely layered under a swathe of clicks, and pops that take you from soaring through the air, right back down to the dance floor.
The cassette also features beautiful silkscreen work from Malcolm Remple with a smooth as silk neon fade. There are only fifty copies to get on them while their still around!.
