BOTW Playlist: Shine 2009

Rounding out our week spent celebrating the return of Helsinki’s Shine 2009 and their fantastic sophomore album, Our Nation, we asked the duo to put together a playlist of ten tracks that have shaped them as musicians. The album itself, which drops October 14 via Modular and Cascine,



BOTW Interview: Shine 2009

On first listening to Our Nation, the second full-length from Helsinki’s Shine 2009, it can be a pretty tough ask to not want to put a political swing on proceedings. With songs that run the gamut from exploring Finland’s position in the EU (‘Eurozone’) to pondering what exactly …



BOTW Video: Shine 2009 – ‘Older’

Coming across like a geriatric Jackie Brown, the video for ‘Older‘ – the second single to be dealt out from Shine 2009‘s forthcoming second album, Our Nation – sees a young lady peddling pills to pensioners who, frankly, should know better at their age. Now, we’re …



Introducing our BOTW: Shine 2009

In the early days of spring 2009, a Russian satellite and an unmanned American spacecraft collided in Siberian airspace, lighting up the local sky with debris burning up upon its re-entry into the atmosphere.

New Track: Shine 2009 – ‘Eurozone’ CFCF remix

Ooooh yeah. There must be something in the Helsinki waters that breeds electro gods. Shine 2009 certainly don’t disprove the hypothesis, as demonstrated by ‘Eurozone’, which dares to critique capitalism and avarice. Social commentary from a synth-pop band? Shine 2009 went there. The track gets a makeover from Montreal’s CFCF



New Track: Shine 2009 ‘Eurozone’

After a weekend of record news and releases from everyone from Jai Paul to Daft Punk to Janelle Monae to Empire of the Sun, it’d be easy to look over Shine 2009. One of the first things I ever featured on this very website after the relaunch back in …



Introducing: Wildarms

It’s hard not to be a little inspired by Wildarms, aka Brooklyn producer and FADER associate editor, Duncan Cooper. Skipping over any sense of melodrama or over-exuberant romance peddling, his songs under the Wildarms moniker are thinly-veiled tributes to the subtler beauty in an everyday relationship, allowing samples and …



Exclusive Stream & Interview: Jonquil

Jonquil is the brainchild of Hugo Manuel, key member of Oxford’s mathy music scene and electronic beat producer extraordinaire (cc side-project Chad Valley). We’ve seen them play live a few times now and must admit that as much as we tried not to move, we were hypnotised into a …



Single/Video: Selebrities – Night Heat

Night Heat can be summed up in …
