Givan Lötz

“Recorded lo-fi style – in a bedroom apparently – this affecting release combines breathless harmonies and fragile tunes to achieve a strange warmth. Also makes Belle & Sebastian sound like Motorhead.” -The Crack (UK)

Low Low Low La La La Love Love Love

“Tallest Trees offer endearingly loopy art-pop brimming with effortless charm.” -NME (UK)

Tallest Trees

"With skeletal guitars and synthesizers that crackle like broken leaves, it's the soundtrack to the scene in a movie when the character is being watched by something malevolent." -Times Live (ZA)

Small Sails

“despite the fact that the album is essentially a canvas of white noise, otherworldly drones, and astral dissonances, it achieves a remarkable sense of poignancy that holds things taut...” -Delusions of Adequacy

Male

“Electronica this good should be illegal.” –The Mail and Guardian (ZA)

João Orecchia

"Holly Hunt’s fusion of various heavy and droning genres is a mind-bending trip into dizzying ecstasy." -The Dropp

Holly Hunt

"Holly Hunt’s fusion of various heavy and droning genres is a mind-bending trip into dizzying ecstasy." -The Dropp

Holly Hunt

“Ends of June is a genuinely terrific album, a collection of 12 heartfelt, largely acoustic, quiet bedroom pop songs that does in fact sound kinda like a cross between Low, the La's and Love, although to be fully descriptive, their name would also have to mention Belle & Sebastian, Neutra

Jatun

“Baja, like his other compatriots on the up-and-coming Other Electricities label, operates under the maxim that modern digital music is simply an aural Cuisinart, capable of blending anything and everything into anything and everything, reshaping genre into whatever is physically possible.“

Baja
