As recommended by podcast cohost Andrea Cleary, Billie Marten’s new album Flora Fauna is out tomorrow and this track addresses the vulnerability of women alone at night.
Know Me (feat. Demigosh)
Irish artist Demigosh provides some spoken word and melodic vibes on Moiré’s new album Good Times, one of the better electronic albums released in recent months.
Jorja Smith released a stop-gap 8-track album Be Right Back last week. ‘Gone’ is the twinkling R&B standout.
Only Said Enough
A big breaks room shaker to tear up the festivals when things come back. YUP. Released on Ninja Tune.
Hard to escape the MJ comparisons on ‘Got Me’. Since joining Atlantic Records, Mvula is like an artist reinvigorated. Her third album Pink Noise is forthcoming.
“We must shock this nation with the power of love!”
Burial’s moving and cinematic club tracks perhaps hits its most recent apex on this track. Ravey, dystopian, discombobulating and euphoric. The other track ‘Space Cadet’ is great too.
A new one from the highly-anticipated Town’s Dead album, out June 25th. Such confidence and versatility in that voice with every song released.
‘Wickid Tongues’ is about “falling too deeply in love with someone a little too fast, and how that can play with your head and make you paranoid. It can be quite hard to build trust early on in any relationship, if you’re not careful I feel it’s easy for your thoughts to run away with you and you become suspicious when there might not be anything wrong.”
Erika De Casier
Copenhagen singer-songwriter and producer Erika De Casier is equally in thrall to ’90s R&B as it is UK Garage. The song is from Sensational, out on 4AD omorrow.
Love the cheap slideshow video too.
Oneohtrix Point Never, Rosalia
My favourite singing voice in music on a Daniel Lopatin track. Yes, please.
‘Nothing’s Special’ first appeared as the closing track on the Magic Oneohtrix Point Never album, and this new version popped up yesterday.
