Record of the Month: Standing on the Corner - Red Burns

It’s hard to place a firm finger on Standing on the Corner’s latest album, a 60 minute, two-track release entitled Red Burns, but the record - which opens with warm crackling, synth-y harp strums, and omnipotent narration treated with the kind of vocal distortion that sounds as if your cassette’s brown tapes have melted - is wildly innovative, and strangely mesmerizing. The project, headed by Gio Escobar and Jasper Marsalis, a Crown Heights based duo armed with a jazz background and an interest in rap and electronica, is a response to recent political and nationwide events, chronicling them with the distinctive viewpoint of those facing direct oppression, but expressing them through a medium that is widely freeform and experimental.

Von Sell returns with groovy alt-pop on “Hell No”

After a year spent battling vocal chord issues, Brooklyn artist Von Sell has returned with the R&B inflected electro-pop single “Hell No,” a hard-grooving debut for NYU’s Village Records. David Von Sell, the Hamburg, Germany native behind the project, sings with a soft and sly tone that contrasts the on-and-off pump of a dense electronica arrangement. The production shines on “Hell No,” so sleek it’s almost slippery with a thick snare-kick beat anchoring the rhythm down. It’s a marked improvement to his promising 2016 debut self-titled EP and an enticing preview of what we could expect from a new EP currently in progress by Von Sell. – Cameron Carr

PREMIERE: Telecommuter - "Can't Get Back to Sleep"

There's nothing wrong with a little bit of smooth and silky electro-R&B sounds, and that's exactly what Telecommuter is dishing out with his debut single and video for "Can't Get Back to Sleep." 

Telecommuter is the solo project of composer and producer Alexander Margitich, who also holds a Berklee College of Music background in contemporary composition and production, as well as quite a bit of choral singing and improvisational jazz guitar training. Margitich's background has translated itself seamlessly into the electronic arrangements he's been working with recently. "Can't Get Back to Sleep" is laid over a slow tempo, moody electro beat, as Margitich gives a mellow and slightly sultry delivery of his vocals. The track was inspired by a fit of jet lag and insomnia that struck him on a family trip, the experience contributing to much of the song's moodiness. 

For the video, Margitich collaborated with his wife, fashion designer and photographer Lina Michal. Together they visually matched the mercurial air of the song with the abstract and ambient carnival shots. 

"Can't Get Back to Sleep" is the only Telecommuter track you can find online, but there's a chance to hear the rest of what he's been working on during his debut show on 1.11 at the Turn Turn Turn with Prolly Knot, Indigoe and SunSon. Watch the video for "Can't Get Back to Sleep" below.
