Motion Control - Rolling Shallow
Motion Control - It Feels Right
Motion Control - Departure

Motion Control is a mysterious new project by some girl I don’t know and the artist formerly known as Old Gold. I’ve been listening to them obsessively ever since a friend shot their tracks in my direction, mostly because I’ve been trying to figure out an accurate yet non-pretentious way to describe them. The best thing I can come up with is that their sound’s heavily routed in the 1980s, with one foot in freestyle and the other firmly lodged in Italo-disco.

Most likely, I have failed in both the non-pretentious and accurate department with that description, so let’s just put it this way—this is some really good stuff. You’ll like it. I swear!

Ghost Lake - Late Spring Morning Sunlight

Henric Wallmark of Heart-Sick Groans will be releasing his debut EP as Ghost Lake on THEM Records later this week. The six song set is a slight departure from the slick, pure-pop production of Heart-Sick Groans, as Wallmark ventures out into a mellower electro-acoustic style.

The EP, simply entitled Late Spring Morning Sunlight, lives up to its name in every respect. In fact, if you close your eyes tightly whilst listening, you can almost feel the warm rays soaking through your skin… Or maybe I’m making that up! All you really need to know is that these are some excellent, lullaby-like tracks, and they’re highly recommended by It’s The Money Shot. Highly recommended!

So far, Amanda Mair is three for three with her self-titled debut. All signs seem to indicate that the full ten-track album will knock socks off worldwide, thereby resulting in an awkwardly sock-less state of being for all citizens of the planet Earth. Enjoy your socks while you still can, folks! They’re gonna be gone before you have time to say goodbye.
