Our new Album of the Week is Sydney-based duo Jagwar Ma brilliant debut album 'Howlin', out today (June 10) via Marathon Artists.
Comprised by Jono Ma and Gabriel Winterfield, the duo first met in Australia and embarked on a musical journey having discovered their similar passions within the industry. They combine rock 'n' roll signifiers (electric guitars, psychedelic vocals) with pristine dance-music production.
When we first heard their killer debut single "The Throw", we knew something good was coming...
Recorded in a secluded town in the north of France, with just an 808, a Fender jaguar, a laptop and a pair of vintage Neve console channels, Jagwar Ma's debut album, has a really infectiously hypnotic sound influenced by everything from the sort of psychedelia to 90s rave culture, baggy sounds, the 'Madchester' scene, and impressively focused dance-pop.
From start to finish, and just as we expected, it is a great debut for this Australian duo with trippy effects and psychedelic sounds that will stick in your mind.
