Every Friday, four new music picks from music blogs worldwide are published as part of my Day & Night pages. Follow Day & Night on Twitter or Facebook. The magazine is out today in print with every copy of the Irish Independent so pick it up to see my full internet-heavy section as well as the rest of the mag.
4AD is an independent label who have a superb roster (The National, Tune-Yards, Bon Iver, St. Vincent) so a new addition is always worth investigating. Indians is the atmospheric folk project of Copenhagen’s Søren Løkke Juul and you can watch the band’s live session from a privately-owned island by way of an intro.
Lionel Williams is an LA visual artist who also makes some damn fine gloopy and hazy guitar pop music. Look out for his album Lemniscate on music blog and label No Pain In Pop in November.
Coming soon to Irish soil, this London electronic R&B duo have been rising for a while now. Their new single Your Drums, Your Love is another reason why marrying zeitgeist-friendly twisted vocal samples with catchy harmonies.
Tom Krell’s latest taster track from his forthcoming Total Loss album, & It Was U is a stripped-back finger-snaps and simple beat R&B a capella song with looped backing vocals. Proper stunning.
