Today, Joy Orbision (whose in town tomorrow night) and Overmono (in Ireland next week) have teamed up for a once-off in ‘Blind Date’ on XL Recordings, a fine amalgamation of the three producers styles – garage, bass and a hook by ABRA to give it extra heat. OOF.

Never Gonna Be
The 22-year-old Galway-based MC Sweetlemondae, comes through with a memorable R&B track called ‘Never Gonna Be’ on Diffusion Lab.
The song is informed by a conversation from Irish artist Moyo about the increase of racial crimes in Ireland.
“I thought it would be good to shed light on that topic. I hope it can be understood that I’m not speaking from an American point of view but an Irish one. It’s sad how such racial crimes can strain families and change a person’s life forever hence ‘Never Gonna Be The Same’.”Sweetlemondae
‘Never Gonna Be’ was created during a Diffusion Lab songwriting camp with producer Benza and Irish artist Moyo.
Sweetlemondae was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and at the age of 7 moved to Ireland. Living in Dublin for her formative years and now resides in Galway.
You can catch her @ Ireland Music Week on Friday, October 7th at The Workman’s Cellar.
Floating Points is to play New Year’s Day in a brand new London club space called HERE which says it’s the “first venue to be purpose built in Central London since the 1940s.”

Sorcha Richardson released her second album Smiling Like An Idiot today, and continues her penchant for spinning memorable indie singer-songwriter tunes with a biographical slant.
Speaking on her new album, Sorcha said; “It’s about falling in love with a person and a place, which in this case is Dublin, and how those two are interlinked.
The Comet Is Coming
Interstellar jazz from the London-based psych jazz-rock band’s third album Hyper-Dimensional Expansion Beam out today.
Khruangbin, Vieux Farka Touré
Texas trio meets Mali guitar legend (and son of Ali) in a marriage made in chill heaven. From the album Ali out today.
Daniel Avery, HAAi
Wall of Sleep
A big booming collaboration between two UK electronic powerhouses.
“Wall of Sleep, the next single to be taken from Ultra Truth is out today. In many ways the track defines the aesthetic of the new album. A cave in which to get lost, hopeful steps towards a burning light, flanked by your favourite people – in my case here Manni Dee who worked on the track, Ghost Culture on saxophone and the returning, soaring voice of HAAi. The Ultra Truth draws ever nearer. ”Daniel Avery
Rid Of Me
Who wouldn’t want to hear Nilüfer Yanya cover PJ Harvey? She already has some of the latter’s intensity, and this is great.
