The best new music this week…
- Jai Paul – ‘BTSU’
A tip from Richie Egan when he appeared on Donal Dineen’s show, Jai Paul is a producer from London who is just starting out. So far, he’s been making electronic R&B with dub frequencies. It still sounds like pop music – just really weird pop music that plays in your brain forever and ever.
- Perfume Genius – ‘Learning’
Beguiling dark ballads from a Seattle Mike Hadreas, It’s pretty desolate stuff but makes for fascinating listening. Learning is out now on Matador. Stream it whole.
- Local Natives – ‘Wide Eyes’ (Teen Daze Remix)
Canada’s Teen Daze turns LA’s Local Natives into a lush electronic landscape. ‘Wide Eyes’ is the perfect song for this kind of makeover.
- Yeasayer – ‘Madder Red’ (The Golden Filter Remix)
The Golden Filter continue their fine run of remixing after the recent UNKLE rework with this 7 minute twisting and turning refix of ‘Madder Red’ , the latest single from Odd Blood.
- Wavves – ‘King of the Beach’
Wavves third album King of the Beach is his best album yet. Here’s the title track.
- David Lyre – ‘Heartbeat’
First recommended for me by reader Lucy back in April, David’s Lyre makes English folk with touches of modernity. Interesting beginnings.
- Futurebirds – ‘Jonny Utah’
Blogger Justin Gauge who writes Aquarium Drunkard is releasing this Athens, Georgia band’s debut album Hampton’s Lullaby through his Autumn Tone label. ‘Jonny Utah’ is a promising promo from the record, out in late July.
