New Music: July Releases From Manners McDade
July has been a busy month for Manners McDade artists, with new releases each Friday making it the summer of music for the London-based music publisher.

Nils Frahm presents more beautiful collaborations with his two releases this month. The music created by Woodkid and Nils Frahm for artist JR’s film, Ellis, has been released as a mini album, one track featuring Robert De Niro’s narration. Fitting with the film’s subject on the refugee crisis, proceeds from the album go to the charity Sea Watch. Frahm’s band, Nonkeen with Frederic Gmeiner and Sebastian Singwald, have released their second album this month also: Oddments Of The Gamble, on R&S Records. The album sees Frahm's trademark piano and synth blended with elements of jazz, psychedelia and world music, with expressive bass and jazz-influenced drums.
Today sees the release of Roger Goula’s first EP, Something About Silence, and the first release on Manners McDade and One Little Indian’s new label, Cognitive Shift Recordings. The EP features two tracks from Goula’s highly anticipated upcoming album Overview Effect, as well as remixes from electronic artists Phaeleh and Christian Löffler.
Christian Löffler’s single Reubin was released earlier this month. The third of a trio of single releases, Löffler uses chopped and distorted vocals and beats to build textures.
Fabric’s Houndstooth label, published by Manners McDade, has lots of new music to offer this month. Epic folk-electronica band Snow Ghosts have released a driving new single, Vetiver, a synth rock-pop masterpiece. Shift Work have released Notes To Self Vol. 1, an EP of throbbing electronic tracks created with analogue kit and busted-up amps. Our Spaces Reworked, from Guy Andrews features remixed of tracks from his latest album of the same name; with one remix by Manners McDade’s latest signing Max Cooper. Finally, Bismuth, Second Storey’s expertly crafted rhythmic and percussive techno-influenced EP is out today.
Will Samson’s Lua is out today. The five track EP sees the folk-electronica artist exploring more ambient sounds and textures, with shimmering harmonies and meditative melodies.
Ghostly International, represented by Manners McDade for sync, have had multiple releases this month, with exciting new music from Tycho, Tobacco, Kllo and Starchild & The New Romantic.
