Shoegazer Techno MP3s

Dublin-based act Decal has posted a small heap of unreleased material at his website,, much in the vein of just slightly tweaked techno, like the drolly titled “Formula for Change” (MP3), which maintains its 4/4 metrics while cycling through all mannger of moody dance floor modes. The keeper is “Dropping Quays” (MP3), which slaps a literally offbeat bit of rhythm into the mix, grounding an otherwise familiar pulse by making it more complex than it needs to be. And better yet is a recently uploaded eight-track EP titled Little Sketches, all shoegazery and lush, one of ’em featuring a proper vocal by Martin Kelly of the Ruby Tailights. It’s collected as a compressed file (ZIP). (Thanks to Shawn at for the tip.)
