[synthpop] Zemaria + [electronica] Shells

Trawling through the Hotcakes inbox takes bloody ages but it’s made worthwhile when you find some absolute gems.


Brazilian synth-pop band Zemaria are currently touring Europe following the release of their latest album The Space Ahead last year. Not only that but they’ve made it free to download for Hotcakes readers here. Great news for everyone really. Here’s my favourites:

Zemaria – Any Distance [alt]

You can get copies of other tracks, including title track The Space Ahead, over at The Music Ninja.


We’ve covered Shells aka Khalid Rafique before with his remix of electronic artist Seams. He’s returned with his new single, Lunar Park, and continues his fine form.

This track could almost be an early DJ Shadow number, no small praise, with its combination of dreamy piano riffs and rolling percussion. Check it out.
