London’s CURL drops a typically surreal & symbiotic group effort for their Curl Compilation 2 cassette & download release, Jan 11

12 January 2021

London label and collective CURL released their Curl Compilation 2 cassette and download on January 11.

Featuring artists, writers and producers such as co-founder Coby Sey, Roxanne Tataei, Daisy Moon, Bunny Hoova, baby___asl, and others, the LP consists original music and sound pieces made by people from CURL’s loose London network. Also including Leah Walker & Rebecca Salvadori, Wu-Lu, PK Brako, Sissy Fuss, Olivia Salvadori, Suny and Pelin Pelin, contributors have either performed at CURL shows and parties, played with their live band or attended their events and shown support.

AQNB editor Steph Kretowicz‘s ‘BSAD (buy shit and die)’ audio-narrative collaboration with producer Ben Babbitt also features—which premiered as part of Berlin’s 3hd 2020 last year. Kretowicz took part in CURL’s performance around recent Artist Statement podcast interviewee Akinola Davies Jr‘s ‘Mayonnaise, Corn on the Cob and My Car’ short film screening at an earlier edition of the festival. The filmmaker’s own musical field recordings make several haunting appearances throughout Curl Compilation 2.**

Bunny Hoova’s lo-fi pop & broken-down soul reflects on the connection between consumerism & animal cruelty in ‘Lazy_Easy’

18 July 2019

Bunny Hoova is releasing album Longing via Preston’s Them There Records on July 26, with preview track ‘Lazy_Easy’ premiering on AQNB today. The Rotterdam-born, Manchester-based musician produces the kind of garage-influenced avant-pop and broken-down soul similar to artists like Micachu and Tirzah, whom she’s also supported on stage.

The record follows similar themes that the aforementioned London-based artists deal in also, with denial and desire being major topics permeating the wobbly and emotional production of degraded sample loops, instrumentals and sideways vocals. ‘Lazy_Easy’, meanwhile, is a jangling reflection on consumerism and animal cruelty that seesaws over a lusciously unstable jumble of rhythm guitar, beats and percussion that is perfectly lo-fi in its execution.**

Bunny Hoova’s ‘Longing’ album is out via Preston’s Them There Records on July 26, 2019.
