OSCAR & THE WOLF – ENTITY (Indie – Belgium)

Oscar and the wolf (by Marie Wynants)Hailing from the northern city of Ghent, Oscar and The Wolf is one of the most promising new acts to come out of the Belgian indie scene. With a couple of EP’s under their belt and dozens of gigs in every corner of Europe, the band is ready to bring up their game with the release of their much anticipated debut album. Any number of adjectives could attributed to Entity but in essence the twelve tracks delve into band leader Max Colombie’s creative world of minimal moodiness, sensual synth pop and dark futuristic R’n’B.

Both musically and visually, the heart of Oscar and the Wolf is one Max Colombie who, having composed much of the album in his bedroom in Brussels then recorded in both London and in his native Belgium, overseen by the much lauded producer Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, David Byrne, Jon Hopkins, Wild Beasts) who mixed the album. In Colombie’s own words, Entity is ‘one long serenade in which I try to express my desires and my view of things to a loved-one’.

Released in Belgium and the Netherlands last April, the album will be available in the rest of the world on October 13th but you can preorder it from your usual downloading platform. In the meantime you can grab two excellent remixes for free HERE and HERE.

MOONLIGHT MATTERS – COME TO ME (Electro – Belgium)

After almost two years producing disco-infused beats as one half of Villa, Sebastiaan Vandevoorde is now striking out on his own with his solo project Moonlight Matters. He has already produced a string of acclaimed remixes for the likes of Charlotte Gainsbourg, Monarchy, Alex Winston, Digitalism, Lana del Rey or Is Tropical

For his debut EP, Come For Me, Vandevoorde enlisted a few friends, such as Gustaph from Hercules & The Love Affair and Straving yet Full (of Azari & III fame) who provide vocals on “Come for Me” and “Standing Up For Love” respectively. Note that the download bundle also features remixes by Jerry, Herr Styler and Punks Jump Up.

All in all the EP includes three original tracks and it’s available now via Kitsuné. For some reason Mighty Mouse’s epic 7-minute remix of the title song didn’t quite make the cut for the official release, which is strange given how deliciously infectious it actually is. But fear not because Moonlight Matters has decided to release it anyway as a free download via his Soundcloud page.
