It seems Róisín Murphy has better things to do than make awesome music these days (probably being awesome generally) but she’s teamed up with Boris Dlugosch on his new track ‘Look Around You’ (up on Beatport). The pair had previously collaborated on the track ‘Never Enough’. ‘Look Around You’ is much more palatable. Oh, also best to ignore the video (because it’s shite) and just listen to the track:
You might have heard that snippet of ‘Banana Clipper’ a couple of weeks back from El-P and Killer Mike’s new project. The best new buds in the rap game are teaming up on Run The Jewels for a U.S. tour this summer and they are releasing a free album via Fool’s Gold before then. ‘Get It’ is the first full track from the Run The Jewels album.
If you’ve been following the online treasure hunt of six-digit codes, mysterious radio and TV broadcasts and cryptic GIF ASCII characters or especially if you haven’t (FACT have been covering it extensively), the good news is that Boards Of Canada do indeed have a new album entitled Tomorrow’s Harvest and it will be released on Warp Records on June 7th (Ireland), 10th (Europe) /11th (US).
It’s up for pre-order on Bleep right now (though the site is very busy). Here’s a video trailer and a tracklist:
On Sunday night in the Village following Three Trapped Tigers, Orlando Peter FitzGerald aka Orquesta will be DJing before Darkstar take to the stage. Orlando’s put together a Soundcloud set of music suggestive of the kind of thing you can expect from him. His tropical-leaning bass-heavy electronic style is full effect here with tracks from Romare, Murlo’s remix of Mohammed Alidu, Mano Le Tough, Imo Brothers International Band, Kingdom, Ciara and a Justin Timberlake bootleg from King Kong.
When not accompanying David Kitt on his New Jackson project, Damo Lynch makes vintage sounding synth-based electronica as Diamond Dagger, music which is like soundtracks to forgotten movies and video games. His latest EP follows up the February release of DD-1 EP. Damo says Bison is “more Dagger than Diamond”. Download it at Bandcamp.
Clams Casino‘ slowed down cloudy production style is put to good effect by DOOM here on a woozy new track called ‘Bookfiend’. Lex Records are promising more collabs from the pair. In other DOOM news, his classic King Geedorah album was recently sent out to Beat Delete funders ( I got that) and is now available from Ninja Tune.
Donal Dineen and Myles O’Reilly filmed this documentary featuring Caoimhin O’Raghallaigh looking at Willie Clancy week in Miltown Malbay, Co. Clare where Ireland’s largest traditional music summer school has been held since 1973 in memory of the piper Willie Clancy.
The new single from Marcus Lambkin’s Shit Robot finds the trademark disco synth swagger in full effect. What sets ‘Feels Real’ apart from last year’s ‘Space Race’ single is Luke Jenner of The Rapture’s discotastic falsetto. Here, he’s credited simply as JENR. The song is out on a 12″ on Monday through DFA with remixes by Luke Solomon and Larse.
Also next week, Shit Robot is playing Cypress Ave, Cork on May 3rd, Roisin Dubh, Galway on May 4th and Button Factory, Dublin post Camden Crawl with The Field on May 5th. If you’re in NYC, he’ll be playing the DFA/RBMA closing party alongside a whopper lineup. Stream the track below via the Vimeo vid:
