Untitled #01, 1999 – Rarities and Unreleased

“Without further ado – One of many, many tracks I’ve made from long ago when I first started creating. This one was made sometime around 1999 – 2001, recorded using nothing but hardware – my MC505 Groovebox being the main sequencer at the heart of it all with various synths and a sampler in the mix.

If it goes over well enough and you all enjoy hearing this stuff I’ll keep posting them from time to time. It’s good to go back every so often and see how far you’ve come sonically. Enjoy peeps!”

Out Feb. 5th: The Bear and The Sea – Trees Like You
January 25th, 2013 by Nueva Forma™

Trees Like You

Mark your calendars: on February 5th, The Bear and The Sea debuts his full-length album, Trees Like You. It will be available via Bandcamp, iTunes, Spotify, Rdio, Rhapsody, Amazon MP3, Deezer, and XBOX Music. In the meantime, stream a few tracks from the release!

About the release:

Trees Like You, clocking in at a sharpened and stirring 12 tracks, is The Bear and the Sea’s debut full-length album. If you’re a start from the top kind of listener, you’ll join in at My Fire Burns The Same, a chirping, wind chime of an introduction into an earthy, blustering soundscape of pneumatic yet skintight gratification.

Crystal Swords will only surprise you a little bit with its pop and lock gusto, its sway/sway tap tap tap, because even in the whisper quiet spots, the Bear has you in motion.

These tracks are titled like the Galápagos Islands under the Northern Lights at a virtual reality party where hours later, you still find grains of sand between your toes. Human Loop hits an exotic yet square place in your gut that’ll have your freewheeling head doing figure 8s, and Pink Route warps itself around a guttural heartbeat while clacking away at something you want to hear again and again.

And just like that, in a mournful yet ritualistically tidal fashion, it’s over. While tricky to place in context, Trees Like You is a lot like its title, the leafy and fleshy stuff of our very existence – you need it in your lives.

Listening Pleasures Episode 23
January 9th, 2013 by Nueva Forma™

Monthly podcast: Nueva Forma Listening Pleasures

A little while ago, we received the nicest message from Little Everyday Pleasures, an online pleasure boutique that had long admired our Listening Pleasures podcast. They charmingly congratulated us on all the magnificent moments our label had given them in their office, and thought it’d be nice if we curated a mix especially for them, and so we did. Episode 23 by Wolfe+585 is indeed about listening pleasures and everyday pleasures, but more specifically, it’s about the pleasures (and agonies) of love, fantasy, and desire. (Note: this mix has been field tested and Nueva Forma approved.)

As a thank you to the label and our listeners, Little Everyday Pleasures made a discount code especially for us. Use NUEVAFORMA15 to get 15% your entire order with no minimum purchase. This code may be used once per order (but not combined with other codes), and as many times as you wish until the end of February. So order away and enjoy yourselves!

More about Little Everyday Pleasures:

Little Everyday Pleasures is a pleasure boutique interested in revealing and sharing delight in its different forms. Our concept came up back in 2009 and we thought that the scenes covering the topic of “pleasure” didn’t satisfy all the market segments; people interested in this subject had always been very familiar with a particular visual language, rather kitsch, folk and heavy. We sell good design and good quality pleasure objects because “one Little Pleasure Everyday keeps the doctor away!”

Our “I’M ALL EARS” category is a place to showcase our favorite people, mixes or songs resulting in perfect moments to use in your bedroom or dining room dancefloors. The result are sometimes unique and special.
