fuck-buttons-tarot-sport Remember those times when you picked up a music magazine and read a playlist of what the writers were playing in the office that week? Here is my nod to that publication staple. No great fanfare, just ten of the best song around right now I’ve been playing lots of.

Fuck Buttons new’ album Tarot Sport is out now and it’s amazing. If Street Horrrsing was a lethargic rush of euphoria, Tarot Sport is a kick in the balls at a rave at 6am, Full of sounds that would be at home on Aphex Twin’s Druqs. It reminds me more of Holy Fuck in parts too. The 10 minute full version of ‘Surf Solar’ is something else.

Also this week: two of the chart-featuring artists will be playing here soon. Miike Snow is joining Marina and the Diamonds and Digitalism for that Heineken Green Spheres gig in Carlow (more info here) and Ou Est Le Swimming Pool will be joining Annie Mac and Benga on November 12th in The Academy (tickets here).

Artists: , , , , ,

Speaking of LA beatmakers, there’s a new release from Daedelus in the form of split 6-track EP with Jogger on the Friends of Friends label. The idea involves Friends of Friends inviting an artist to do a split EP; they in turn invite another musician or group to complete the split release and commission a designer to create the EP’s artwork on a limited edition T-Shirt (Aren’t all tees limited edition?) which will include a download card. More info.

Here’s the opening head-swirling soulful track from Daedelus on the EP. The video above is the second track ‘LA Nocturn’.

Daedelus – C’est Super

Daedelus is back in Dublin on May 2nd and live he is incredible so go see. Has anyone listened to the bossa-nova type album he did with his wife recently? Haven’t been feeling it too much to post about it here. It’s called The Long Lost and it’s out on Ninja Tune.
