geckoGecko Turner (real name Fernando Gabriel Echave Pelaez) is a Spanish musician and singer-songwriter. Based near the border between Spain and Portugal, he has fronted several bands in his native Spain. Guapapasea, his first CD released in the U.S., incorporates bossa nova, soul, funk, reggae, jazz and electronica.

Fink SortofFollowing the success of last year’s Hard Believer album—which saw the trio known as Fink melding Fin Greenall’s ruggedly lush vocals with a slow-burning and steady-thumping array of string plucking (Guy Whittaker) and cymbal smashing (Tim Thornton)—they ring in 2015 with Horizontalism, due for release via R’COUP’D on 18 May 2015.

Presented as a collection of dubs from Hard Believer, the re-worked material takes on a decidedly more mysterious turn: vocals dangle and loop precariously over raw edges of murky sound, lasers oscillate and waves crash, percussion click-clacks somewhere far away, and the listener somehow draws nearer to the core from which Fink draws the sonic intimacy for which they’re so well-known. Inspired by Greenall’s new home in Berlin and his resurgent interest in electronic production, his series of mixes may stand in stark contrast to the bands musical output of the past years but the listener finds themselves at the same intersection of impassioned storytelling, manifest emotion and darkly beautiful ambience that Fink fans have come to expect.

ikonAustralian band IKON has been creating its unique brand of wave music for eighteen years. Chris McCarter (vocals, guitar, programming) and Dino Molinaro (bass) began to write songs as high school students in 1988. In 1991, their original name Death in the Dark was replaced by IKON, and the band’s original singer was Michael Carrodus, who departed in 1997 after two albums.

The duo was joined by guitarist Anthony Cornish in 2006 who fulfilled live duties until 2010. Love, Hate and Sorrow, IKON’s sixth studio album was released in November 2009 and was three years in the making.
