Dream-pop is the new wave and Australian trio Twin Caverns are well on their way to establishing themselves firmly in this genre. After a semi hiatus to work on new music, they return effortlessly with “Crimes,” a blues infused stripped down gem. Put this on, sit back, and let your mind unwind…

Ant Plate of Rhythm Plate infamy debuts his latest imprint excursion, Vinyl Only with a supreme EP from his YSE Saint Laur’Ant moniker. With previous 12″s for Whiskey Disco, Editorial, and Pickpocket, you’d be wise to snap this up on sight as the second hand market has a habit of commanding considerable mark ups for the man’s former outings. A lovely four-tracker is what we have here and it showcases the breadth of the YSE Saint Laur’Ant sound: low BPM’s, soulful laments, expert sample sources and fat, fat grooves. Sublime.

It’s been too long since we’ve heard from our man, Xander Milne… he was a staple around the DB office just a year ago but we lost touch. Well, fear not because the man is back and he comes baring gifts!

First up, we get a bit of a curve ball, a downbeat EP with three, exceptionally head-nod-able, boom-bap styled tunes. The “Message Home EP” sees Milne channel some Dam-Funk-esque electro-boogie on the title cut while he blesses the mic with some deep rhymes on “Rugged Child.” Closing cut, “Beyond The Stars,” is a bittersweet ode to perseverance and staying the course, no matter what obstacles may stray you… if I had to guess, I’d assume we’d have to thank the one and only Bald Head Slick aka Guru for the words of wisdom and encouragement. #rip

As an added bonus, Mr. Milne keeps all the house heads happy with his latest joint, “Troubles feat. Vera Hall.” This uptempo, deep-house cut utilizes the instantly recognizable hook popularized by Moby in his timeless classic, “Natural Blues.” Here, we get and irresistible revision that features a bouncy, 808 bass line and some slick, filtered chord stabs. Proper dance floor biznezz on this one…. show the man some love for all of his generosity!
