Dumbo Gets Mad emerged in the summer of 2010 in Northern Italy and has now migrated to Los Angeles. His initial aim was to lay down some marvelous music in an organic manner, open to whatever direction the tunes took during the recording session. The first published track was Plumy Tale, which received positive reviews from a number of music blogs. Dumbo then decided to work on a debut album with an express goal and spirit in mind: “No matter what it sounded like, it had to be psychedelic!”

The result, Elephants At The Door, drops today. The album was recorded sans fancy technology, using old-fashioned equipment like analog synthetizers and tape machines—and lots of good vibes. (from Dossier Journal)


  • The Needle Drop [8/10] : “Think of it as Flying Lotus’s Cosmogramma from a psych rock perspective.”
  • SlantMagazine [4/5] : “Elephants at the Door is an inspiring victory of DIY determination”
  • Coke Machine Glow – Marmelade Kids track review: “This is probably the most potent free psychedelia you can have without growing your own peyote.”
  • LoudVision [9/10]: “You can call it post-Loveless shoegaze, lo-fi or dreampop. We simply define it wonder.”
  • Joe Tangari (Senior Contributing Writer at Pitchfork) : “Great psych band from Italy – Plumy Tale made my Pitchfork top 50 last year”.
  • Redefine Magazine: “The ability to change pace and still sound coherent is what makes the album so satisfying.” (Erik Burg)

[BadPanda015] Maryos – African Era

with one comment

Bad Panda song of the week is from an australian guy born in ’93. Influenced by compatriot acts as Cut Copy, Midnight Juggernauts and The Avalanches, he really enjoyed our first release (by Andy&Muzz) and he even remixed one of their song, Autumn Mist.
As he wrote in his soundcloud page, he made this song, African Era, inspired by Modeselektor.

Inspired by the likes of Midnight Juggernauts, Cut Copy, Modeselektor, Daft Punk and Woolfy, Maryos started making little edits, remixes and DJing with his friend Corey. Maryos & Corey had their first digital release on RuNT Records at the age of 15. Moving on a year or so after that Maryos’ taste of music developed and pushed him to try and make deeper, funkier tracks. Shortly after this he got a bit of love from one of his idols, the guru of funk, Woolfy from the US for one of his tracks. Maryos is now in the studio with friends working on some side projects.

[BadPanda014] The Jakesperiment – Scwarz

with one comment

Dissa Kamajaya, a 19 years old musician from Indonesia, is The Jakesperiment, an interesting solo instrumental ambient/neoclassic/post-rock project with influences as Akira Kosemura, Robin Guthrie (Cocteau Twins), Harold Budd, Cornelius and Anoice. Scwarz is a new beautiful song that could perfectly fit as intro on the next Sigur Ros or Coldplay album (but don’t tell Brian Eno or Jon Hopkins!).
