Another brilliant single from Nabuma Rubberband. Cannot wait.
A highlight from my album of the week.
A sweet whistle-hook bright indie jam from the Boston band The Derevolutions. The band are Brett Boucher + Ana Karina
Machinedrum has stepped up and turned in a beguiling remix of Food album slow cut ‘Runnin’.
Really getting into Mr Khan now. It’s like Jai Paul if he released records. This is from his forthcoming 1992 EP.
Patrick O’Laoghaire was playing with Slow Skies a year ago. Now he’s supported Anna Calvi on a European Tour and releases a debut EP on Faction Records next month with two gigs in Dublin’s Chancery Lane Theatre.
The debut track from an London/Iranian musician cultivates an aesthetic that references her ancestry through deep-low end, bright synth melodies, vocal cutups and nuanced percussion. TĀLĀ is the sole composer, producer and singer.
Son of Bobby ‘Don’t Worry Be Happy’ McFerrin has an album coming on Brainfeeder in June. RIYL: Fly Lo. Duh.
A sombre elegy from the Derry duo, their first in a year.
A slow R&B-style cut from Tune-Yards’ new album.
