SOUNDCLOUD WRAP: World’s End Press

10072_585415934826296_512769447_n

John Parkinson, Rhys Richards, Sashi Dharann and Tom Ghould make up Melbourne outfit WORLD’S END PRESS. Keeping really busy lately, the lads have recently announced not only their debut record (set for release in the next coming months).

They’ve informed us that it was recorded by DFA Records legend Tim Goldsworthy, and have released its first single, ‘To Send Our Love’!

Ahead of the albums release, the boys have also announced a national headline tour to launch the new single that will finish up with a residency at Sydney’s Brighton Up Bar. We may or may not have some tickets to give away to all of these Australian shows HERE.

With all of this excitement in store, we asked the guys to be our Soundcloud Wrap guests for this week. So without further ado, here’s World End Press‘ top ten Soundcloud tracks that they’re currently digging!

NENEH CHERRY & THE THING ‘Cashback’ (LINDSTROM & PRINS THOMAS Remix)

Swedish rap queen Neneh Cherry does a jazz album dedicated to her father, free jazz legend Don Cherry. Dancefloor royalty Lindstrom and Prins Thomas do a remix of ‘Cashback’. All these names somehow come together, and this track is the result. Amazing.

TORNADO WALLACE ‘Desperate Pleasures’

Some local pride here. Melbourne bread producer Tornado Wallace with a recent release on Beats in Space records. Classic drum-machines and an emotional Fripp-sounding guitar lead; some people just get it right. Really great to see all of the recent well-deserved success.

SOMA HOLIDAY ‘Shake Your Molecules’

Looking forward to this being released on Minimal Wave later in the year; one of my favourite labels. The Minimal Wave Tapes compilation got a lot of time on the Hi-Fi whilst we were recording last year.

Z-FACTOR ‘Fantasy’ ft. JESSE SAUNDERS

Like Minimal Wave, Still Music is one of those labels that takes the hard work out of finding really great music. This is a track off last years early-house compilation 122BPM a retrospective of the Mitchball and Chicago Connection record labels. Still Music have some exciting compilations coming out in the near future.

DARKSIDE (Nicolas Jaar & Dave Harrington)

Take the most maxi-sounding, highly produced, zeitgeist album of the year, strip it back, ditch the production values and somehow give back the personality the album must have once had.

STEVE MORORE ‘Zen Spiders’

I only recently discovered Steve Moore when he started putting things out on L.I.E.S.
Turns out his back-catalogue is full of amazing things. Last years Light Echoes LP is total bliss for fans of german new-age stuff, and his band Zombi totally rocks for anyone with a penchant for Italian-Prog

FOUR DOOR ‘Claim’

I don’t know much about Four Door. They’re from Sydney.. and this is a total Jam.

AME ‘Junggesellenmaschine’

True Soundcloud upload HERE.

A quite unpronounceable track from German duo Ame, and a very nice way to spend 9 minutes. Smooth, deep, unfolding, with just enough melodic content to be friendly.

Elektro Guzzi ‘Affumicato’

True Soundcloud upload HERE.

This band from Vienna are intimidatingly good at playing together. It’s really worth checking out on youtube. They’re making techno with two guitars and a drum kit! (and a whole bunch of pedals). Really hope we get to see them live one day.

Bryan Ferry ‘Don’t Stop The Dance’ (PSYCHEMAGIK Remix)

Psychemagik remix classic songs with subtlety and nuance that both kick the song up a notch on the dance floor whilst retaining the soul of the original. This is a perfect example of their ability to do this. Being fans of Bryan Ferry, Roxy Music, and Psychemagik this remix has managed to make the private lounge room dance one you want to have out at 3am.
