New Music : Father Abraham / George Lenton / Apteka / teenagersintokyo

I'm always on the look out for fresh hip hop, so it was a delight to check out the sounds of Boston based producer and rapper, Father Abraham. This particular tune is taken from his latest LP "I Am Not A Sailor I Am The Captain" which is out now. What i'm feeling with his tracks is that although the beat is heavy, his vocals maintain chilled out and in total control. Father Abraham Myspace

We were just thinking the other day that one of our fav new dubstep producers, Mr George Lenton, has been a little quiet of late. But after hearing his new track and discovering he's broken his collar bone we'll let him off. "Troll" has one of the sickest basslines i've heard this year, and fits perfectly around the vocals cut from the film "Network", which topically is all about the recession. Expect big things!

Based out of Chicago, Apteka are one of the most exciting rock bands i've discovered so far this year. This track "Traitors" instantly oozes coolness and attitude, with big chugging guitars and frenetic distortion, intertwinned with melodic yet edgy vocals. This is music you can imagine would really set off a venue particularly with a suitable lighting, creating an intense atmospheric environment. Apteka Myspace

We've long been fans of Australian upstarts teenagersintokyo since we played their track "Very Vampyr" back in February of last year on a podcast. Since then they've toured with the likes of The Gossip, CSS, and Damn Arms, as well as releasing their critically acclaimed self titled EP. Next year see's the release of their debut album which is being producer by David Kosten (Bat For Lashes), and the first single is "Isabella" is out October 5th. It's a dark affair which is far detached from the energetic punkpop offered on the EP, but it's certainly an interesting direction. teenagersintokyo Myspace
