Black Hearted Brother have an EP, Got Your Love, set for release tomorrow. The group is made up of Neil Halstead, Mark Van Hoen and Nick Holton. It is electronic, it is ambient, it is sort of shoegaze-y. You can check out the Ultramarine remix of the title track below. You might think "Ultramarine? Is this techno?"
No, it is not.

Adanowsky is Alejandro Jodorowsky's kid. He apparently learned to dance from James Brown and had his first guitar lesson from George Harrison (lots of name dropping for two sentences huh?).
His second LP, ADA, is out April 1, 2014. You can check out the track, Dancing On The Radio, below.
Myself? I am waiting for the movie about his dad's abortive attempt to adapt the book, Dune.
Plaid's tenth record, Reachy Prints, is set to come out May 20, 2014 on Mute Records. Check out a stream of the track, Hawkmoth, below.
Plaid are always a fun twist on electronic music--always different, always distinctive. They've flown under the radar for a very long time but there is a pretty good chance they've influenced one of your favorite artists (especially if electronic music, that broad amorphous thing, is YOUR thing).
Chappo have a new video for their song, I'm Not Ready. As you might expect it is below for your perusal.
The group's new LP, Future Former Self, comes out in May. Listening now. Have to tell you? Worth checking out (as close as Mapanare gets to a review).
Constantly Consuming Culture--The Waterfront show crowdfunding effort now live. Shows in Miami and Chicago. Help us out. You can own the painting above.
