Time for our weekly stop by Madegg’s place to see what’s new…surprise, new music! I’ve had small debates with people about the Kyoto producer’s decision to flood SoundCloud with so much music – they say it goes too far, to the point where keeping track of EPs and other releases becomes an extremely difficult task. I think that, though the dude does release a lot, he manages to make his EP and (forthcoming) full-length releases stand out, the stray songs surrounding them being treats in advance of the main meal. Here, then, are some snacks fresh out of Madegg’s proverbial kitchen. Well, “snacks” may not be the right word, as “Fall” and “Winter Minder (Extended Version)” are some of the longest tracks in Madegg’s ever-increasing collection. “Fall,” which you can hear below, is especially impressive, a moody piece incorporating natural sounds.

TalkingCity1994 also aren’t strangers to releasing a lot of music, so “Common Song” springing to existence on a random Wednesday isn’t surprising. What is a bit of a jolt – how catchy it ends up, especially given the vocals sounding like they were filtered through a broken kazoo. Yet TalkingCity1994 still manage to hit on a catchy melody that makes the rougher touches easier to swallow. Listen below.
