Mika Vainio, 1963-2017

E-mail Print PDF

We are extremely saddened by the news of the passing of Mika Vainio, as reported initially by Rumba and confirmed by friends. Vainio was best known for his work in Panasonic/Pan Sonic but had numerous solo albums, releases as Ø, and in collaborations, such as VVV with his Panasonic partner Ilpo Väisänen and Alan Vega.

He will be missed dearly.

Brainwashed had the special pleasure of capturing Pan Sonic live and interviewing Mika for The Eye back in 2006. It's a rare video interview of Mika in his own words describing his musical history prior to Panasonic along with his then current experience creating music (Click here for the video.)

cover imageFor his third boxed set on the label since 2011, prolific ambient artist Tor Lundvall collects another four previously released (but limited) albums and a rarities compilation into a diverse sounding, yet thematically unified collection.  Essentially the soundtrack for virtual environments, such as rainy days or visiting a park, Nature Laughs as Time Slips By is another suite of beautiful, if often melancholy instrumental music that covers the vast spectrum of Lundvall’s beautiful work.

Brainwashed Premiere, Marker "Follow it Down"

E-mail Print PDF

cover imageWe at Brainwashed are delighted to pair with Medical Records to debut "Follow It Down" from Marker.  For his first full-length release under that name, New Orleans' own Mike Wilkinson takes the standard guitar/bass/drum sound, mutates it, and then reassembles it brilliantly on this self-titled debut.  "Follow It Down" is an excellent sampler of what will be on next month’s album.  Blissfully demolished guitar sounds are mixed with upfront bass lines to create a hazy fog in which a steady drum machine and Wilkinson's lonely, isolated vocals slowly glide through.  He brilliantly shuffles the mix around, and allows it to dissolve into an ecstatic wall of sound, with shards of melody still shining through the otherwise comfortable, yet impenetrable abyss.  Look for the full album from Marker in mid-July.
