Hundred Waters – Particle’

The Florida band Hundred Waters debuted the first song from their third record which they are currently finishing up as a trio. ‘Particle’ is typical of the band to meld electronic textures with more earthly tones. They say it’s “a deeply personal song that reflects a period of profound change within the band wherein the relationships of the members have shifted into unfamiliar territory, reflected in the song’s rapidly morphing textures.” The song is a free download.


Mac Demarco – ‘For The First Time’

Slacker indie lo-fi poster child Mac DeMarco released his fine third album This Old Dog on Friday. ‘For The First Time’, an immediate highlight, is languid retro summer pop at its best.


Grizzy Bear – ‘Three Rings’

It’s been so long since Grizzly Bear I almost feel like a different person. Still, Grizzly Bear’s return after five years is like welcoming a familiar old friend. Despite the time lapse, ‘Three Rings’ is cut from the same cloth as the band’s previous material. Meticulous full-band layered arrangements that ominously circle the tune with Ed Droste singing about wanting “to show you my bad side.”


Haim – ‘Want You Back’

‘Want You Back’, the Haim sisters’ return is just one of those good songs that everyone can get behind. There’s nothing radical in departure here – just a very tightly calibrated pop song with a singalong chorus that whets the appetite for Something To Tell You on July 7th.


EMBRZ – ‘Heartlines’

The Irish producer Jack Casey has announced a new EP Progress out on Ultra Music in July 7th. That’s the US label which has worked with DeadMau5, Axwell, Alle Farben, Steve Aoki and it’s easy to imagine this new trackwith vocals from Meadowlark going down well in the US.


Bibio – ‘Beyond My Eyes’

Bibio’s new Beyond Serious EP purports to show ” his teenage influences and harks back to his inspirations from mid to late 90s French house.” ‘Beyond My Eyes’ is my highlight.


Mr Jukes – ‘Angels’ / ‘ Your Love’ feat. BJ The Chicago Kid

Jack Steadman, singer with the currently-on-hiatus Bombay Bicycle CLub tries his hand at soul jazzy hip-hop production and nails it on this diptych.

Nine of the best tracks of the last seven days featuring key cuts from Wild Nothing, Bombay Bicycle Club, Crystal Fighters, Onra, R.S.A.G and more.

  1. Crystal Fighters – ‘Summer’
    A bonkers single from the Spanish band. It sounds like smashing songs together in a wind tunnel or Yeasayer if they really did take lots of drugs. You can download it for free from the band.
  2. Wild Nothing – ‘Chinatown’
    Instant happiness from Virginia’s Wild Nothing. Album Gemini comes recommended from me – lo-fi, shoegazey, acid-washed stuff.
  3. M.I.A. – ‘XXXO’ feat Jay-Z
    As much as Maya Arulpragasam’s “look at me, i’m spouting off” publicity campaign is getting on my tits, this tune remains a constant that reminds me, despite the silly album title, the gingercide video and the NY Times “I said / she said” bullshit, that she might actually produce a good third album. Here Jay-Z provides a short verse that gives you an excuse to listen on repeat once again. Another track debuted last night ‘Steppin’ Up’ with what must a Rusko’s production.
