check out Sun Glitters (MP3s, live video & CMJ dates)
by Andrew Sacher
Luxembourg DJ Sun Glitters (aka Victor Ferreira) released his excellent debut LP Everything Could Be Fine earlier this year via LebenStrasse Records. The album is led by pitch-shifted vocals used in a similar fashion to the like-minded Balam Acab. But while Balam Acab favors using those vocals in swirls of ambience, Sun Glitters is backing them with thick beats that exist only in a world where chillwave and hip hop don't seem so different. The whole album is available for $5 on his bandcamp.
In August, he released a split EP with Halls, featuring the track "There," which you can download above. You can also download a remix of the track by Stumbleine, which surfaced last week.
You can catch Sun Glitters in NYC this week for CMJ. He'll play the Lefse Records showcase at Pianos TONIGHT (10/18) with Gantlet Hair, Cuckoo Chaos, A Lull, Teen Daze, Balkans, and Sunglasses. Tickets for tonight's showcase are still available. On Wednesday (10/19), he'll play the 13 Thames Art Space in Brooklyn with Chrome Sparks. On Thursday (10/20), he'll play the PopGun party at Glasslands with Young Magic, Weekend, Casiokids, and Mon Khmer. He also plays a Bigger Brush Media and Gluttony is the New Black presented 'Don't Give a Buzz' show at The Living Room on Friday (10/21) with Chrome Sparks, Radiation City, Snowmine, and others.
