1. Run The Jewels – ‘Oh My Darling Don’t Cry’ El-P and Killer Mike tease their hefty hip-hop followup album RTJ2 with ‘Oh My Darling Don’t Cry’, a bass-booming track which rather than utilising vinyl cutups and effects features the voice artist Michael Winslow doing it for them. Even better? A Christmas Fucking Miracle. They… Read more »

A couple of weeks ago, I premiered the video for ‘Love And Work’, the new song from Cove, “a shimmering digital falsetto-laden electronic rock track”. Today, the EP is with us and among the release’s five tracks are ‘Sylvia’ a potent electronic track with bleeps, beeps, digital percussion, guitars and stunted synths that reminds me… Read more »

On last year’s guest verse on SZA’s ‘Child’s Play’ he illuminated the track with Popeye references and a tightly structured flow that ends in a wistful singsong “But… Read more »

Slow Skies New 2014

For their new EP, entitled Keepsake, Slow Skies (Karen Sheridan & Conal Herron) have amped up the atmosphere between the notes and words, moving their sound into more dynamic and effective places.

Watch the ‘Deep Down South’ video from Stevie G & Christiana Underwood by Feel Good Lost

‘Deep Down South’ they love to party. So say Stevie G and his Cork cohort Christiana Underwood. They’ve already recorded those sentiments so now, with the help of Feel Good Lost, they’ve demonstrated it too with a new video show in Fitzgerald’s Park, Cork. The track is out now digitally but on old-school vinyl next… Read more »
