This week’s instalment of new music in the last seven days is a busy one: it was a prolific week or so. There’s new Korallreven with Japanese hero Cornelius, Le Galaxie’s new single ‘Lucy Is Here’, The Cast Of Cheers meets Adebisi Shank members and make tvvins, synthtastic Sleep Thieves, discotastic Fort Romeau, reprisetastic Gold Panda, groovetastic Policy, collab-tastic James Blake with Chance The Rapper, game-tastic Flying Lotus (hear his entire GTA station here)
There’s Darkside, Letters to Fiesta, 3epkano, Samaris, Girls Names, Elephant, Blood Orange, Movement and Son Lux too. Something for all. Happy weekending.
Samaris are from Iceland and you can hear the breathy shivering electronic-enhanced tones of their countryfellows Björk and Múm in their music. The beautiful ‘Goda Tungl’ is from their Hljóma Þú EP (hear below). We recently featured Samaris on Podcast #39. The elegant video is by Thora Hilmarsdottir.
In which I invent a new word, Aoife and I talk about Azealia Banks (that’s her above drawn by 400 Facts), why Grimes reminds me of Opus III, why Chairlift are great, Twitter fights with Zomby, Icelandic intentions and pronunciations, a load of brilliant Irish electronica and some Shangaan electro.
