A Gap Between’s 10-song album, Summer Nightrunner, bursts forth in that refeshing, I’ve-never-felt-so-alive kinda way, yet it’s also a stripped down, chillwave, honey-sweet nostalgic dream that’ll get you through it.

The titular track soaks you from second one with shimmering synth layered atop a filthy, anchor swallowing deepness that you’ll only find your way out of by letting the gentle lull of its breathy, hiccuping vocals pop you back up into a sexy little snagging beat that’ll definitely tempt your feet and seduce you into hitting repeat. Loved You The Most is a stormy, lonesome jam for those indulgent nights in, with or without someone.

A condensed, glamour-stricken ode to the sun, the moon, and the neon, Nightrunner has that slick 80s sleaze we all not-so-secretly pine for combined with a completely fresh and cunningly atmospheric reverence. It’s like diving into a silvery blot of minnows in your last naked summer, while simultaneously reliving the best skinny-dip of your adult life.

Wander, work, make love or other stuff, tear it up—Summer Nightrunner rolls with you in the before and after, because no matter how or where you’re headed, these songs feel like a summer night and are meant to stick with you.

New Release: Dead Astronauts EP
October 22nd, 2013 by Nueva Forma™

Dead Astronauts

Watch out, girl; Dead Astronauts are honest. They tell you like it is. Things like you don’t yet realize the destructive nature of love, the fires spreading everywhere, and your bones have left you with no one to hold. Oh, and also, stars explode. Their music is basically an icy cold hug of wisdom best consumed as a vampire smothering aid.

This is DA’s freshman release on Nueva Forma; a reverent and true 80s inspired EP of eight lo-fi new wave tracks, four of which are Perturbator’s retrofuturistic synth remixes – reinventions, really – of the first four tracks. For instance, the original B-side track is a faux-haunting, melodramatic sort of dead-eyed sleepy jam. Pertubators’s remix has this sexy, swelling, cosmic void vibe. Two wild sides of the same righteous coin, if you ask us, so do yourself a solid and flip it. And just try not to notice Glenn Arthur’s morbid-galactic album artwork while you’re at it.

Get the album on Bandcamp, iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, and more.

IG88 – Breathing Suit
April 2nd, 2013 by Nueva Forma™

IG88 – Breathing Suit

IG88′s Breathing Suit is for those days when things are too fast and clumsy, or when they’re just right and enough. When the planet is too sick and large to realize, or when the enormous mystery of it all is the most important question you’ve ever contemplated. When they’re all there and no one is here, or when you can acknowledge every last human for what it is he or she wants to do.

The thing is, you always need the good stuff, the stuff to accompany you, and this it. It’s beautiful, it’s crushing, it’s fun. This is an album of anthems cuddled in space; an album that has everything to say.

The Bear & The Sea – Trees Like You
February 15th, 2013 by Nueva Forma™
The Bear & The Sea - Trees Like You

The Bear & The Sea – Trees Like You

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.

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!”

The Bear and The Sea – The Girl’s Got Angel Wings
November 28th, 2012 by Nueva Forma™

The Bear and The Sea – The Girl’s Got Angel Wings

It’s bleary. The air’s thick as soup and every breath is heavier than the last; more ghostly than gusty, yet still the very stuff of life.

The Bear and the Sea’s debut single with Nueva Forma, The Girl’s Got Angel Wings, is the compressed soundtrack to taking a preternatural drive through Twin Peaks, Washington on any given night in history – you’re destined for trouble and the temper of the atmosphere is almost too right to bear.

It’s all romance and piano keys, overspreading fog and red roses in glass vases. In this moment, you realize that the Earth could stop bearing and sustaining your every need. It’s exhilarating. And then you’re just fumes, a tiny speck of familiar yellow in the distance. Until you hit repeat.

Gouseion – Puisne
November 1st, 2012 by Nueva Forma™

Gouseion – Puisne

There exists a crunchy netherworld of whipping hips and closed eyes; there exists a shuddering whirlpool where hard living begs for a badly behaved soundtrack, where aggressive contraptions nag at the frayed edges of nature.

Puisne, Gouseion’s first release with Nueva Forma, doesn’t bother with the scenery of things. Like a noisy companion who likes things a certain way and operates as a remote soldier with one thing in mind, Gouseion comes from a place of inner quiet – but it’s bloody insane on the outside.

Pirony really sets the whole thing off with a windshield wiper powerhouse jam that’s as consistent and metrical as you like it. It all starts with the jagged chomp of the bass and spreads like an infection into the audio context. Three tracks later, Turing Test loosens the screws a bit and knocks it all down a few notches, but doesn’t let go of a thing.

All in all, there are sweet moments of slow recoil and deep breaths of nasty, pulverized darkness in here. Stagger reminds you that your heart’s still beating and that there is a way out, a way back into the fold where the familiar will always remind you that you’re human. Then it’s all popping circuits and touches of brutal melody from there until EOD (II) fades out into a dark and gentle reprieve.

We think Gouseion is trying to tell us that there’s something lesser yet totally scintillating behind the natural world – innocence be damned. Puisne hails weakness, both as a flaw and an openness, and we all need to hear what that sounds like every now and then – however it is we choose to hear it.
