The US duo formerly known DJ Dodger Stadium’s new album Stand Up And Speak came out last week and while I’ve yet to give it a full spin, I keep coming back to one of last week’s tracks of the week ‘I Don’t Love You’.
For last year’s video for ‘Love Songs’ Jerome LOL and Samu Soundboy employed a slow-motion drone camera for interesting vistas that matched the song’s epic nature. For the video for ‘I Don’t Love You’, the setting is the Hollywood Walk of Fame and the cameras are all iPhones but the result of the video is much the same in its fitting tone.
Shangaan electro-inspired minimal dance on Hyperdub.
Katharine Philippa is one of my favourite Irish artists and one of the most talented I’ve seen play live.
Jessy Lanza’s new single has a Shangaan Electro bounce to it. From her forthcoming second album Oh No produced with Junior Boys’ Jeremy Greenspan in her hometown of Ontario, as the first one was, ‘It Means I Love You’ is a playful electronic track that is spacious but bangs hard due to the fast BPM. Lanzy says new album Oh No addresses her own constant nervousness and is inspired by Japanese band Yellow Magic Orchestra.
The band release EP featuring Tricky, Roots Manuva & Young Fathers.
With the Bristol dystopian trip-hop band back on the road and with a new generative app released, the band dropped the first of two EPs due this year before an album and Ritual Spirit is chock with collaborators: Tricky, Roots Manuva, Azekel & Young Fathers.
‘Take It In’ is Massive Attack moodiness on autopilot to be honest, but they excel at these ember-burning dirges. The addition of old pal Tricky lifts the song’s stature.
