One-Liners Reviews

One-Liners: French Horn Rebellion & Glassio, Mellow Fields & Mecha Maiko, Yoko Temple and More

This week’s One-Liners showcases some damn fine cuts: some new, some classic, and some I’m sharing just because.

French Horn Rebellion & Glassio – ‘Love Me Back’

An upbeat blast of colors from some of Brooklyn’s finest, who pair up to craft a new synth-pop/R&B cut that is one of the catchiest I’ve heard in a while.

Mellow Fields (Feat. Mecha Maiko) – ‘Hellbent on You’

Dark and light collide in a cold, spacious nightclub with a moonscape on the horizon and the uncertainty of lust permeating the air.

Opal – Tidal Wave

Let the slow waves wash over you, bringing with them the potent ablution you need to truly embrace 2019 as a cleansed individual.

Yoko Temple – Lonerlust

Succumb to your instincts and embrace the uncertainty that washes over you, as you listen to this new compilation of Yoko Temple’s 2010-2014 chillwave recordings.

Thomas Barrandon – ‘The QUiet Earth’

Title cut from a fantastic and galactic instrumental synth record that has never truly gotten its due — not in 2011, when it first was released, nor in 2014, when it was revamped and reissued.

Glass Apple Bonzai – Night Maze 

Sofa King Vinyl has finally put this lovely release on wax.

Forbidden Hues – Dark Skies

Be hypnotized by the phantasm of this delectably bizarre EP.

(Editor’s Note: As established in this post, the One-Liners column is a concise but meaningful way to highlight Vehlinggo-recommended releases.)
