Beatsmith Ta-Ku has released this rework of Love Lost originally by Daughter. Beautiful.
It’s not often that you come across a band as elusive as Jungle. Try finding some info about them and you’ll see exactly what I mean. Already garnering a lot of attention the band premiered the groove-laden, murky funk of debut single Platoon on Noisey. The track will be released as a AA side alongside Drops on July 15.
For those of you who have been following the blog for a while, you’ll know that I think there’s something in the water in Bristol. Over the years the place has been the hotbed of some amazing musical talent. Continuing the trend is producer Phaeleh. Whistling in the Dark is a melancholic number featuring the soothing vocals of Augustus Ghost. Immerse yourself in the sound and stunning visuals.
Watch out for Tides LP dropping July 1.
Formed 14 years ago and having toured every corner of the planet leaving no stone unturned, Fat Freddy’s Drop are back with that good stuff. The dub-soul of Clean the House is accompanied by the creatively eye-catching visuals by award winning New Zealand film maker Mark Williams and Jon Coddington. The mini-movie is cast by puppets where a moody poker game develops into a high speed car chase and guns. Break out the popcorn and hit play.
New album Blackbird drops June 24.
Hailing from London, Polaroid 85 combine haunting vocals, deep bass, intricate orchestral layers and glitchy samples to create downtempo, cinematic music. Fuzzy Mornings is a soulful, piano-led composition infused with elements of jazz, liquid drum’n’bass, world, classical and folk music, taking the listener on a varied sonic journey. You can grab their free debut EP here.
Although I’ve only been aware of London Grammar for the best part of about six months, the band are becoming a personal firm favourite. Wasting My Young Years is a showcase of ethereal vocals and sublime production. With the audio made available last month, the track is now accompanied by some truly awe-inspiring visuals. The single drops June 16 on Metal & Dust Recordings.
