Glow in the Dark

Parisian artist Jackson Fourgeaud returns with his 2nd LP Glow eights after his debut, Jackson and his Computerband's sophomore LP is an eclectic journey. A gothic psychedelic affair full of surprises, turning from melodic pop to electronic atmospherics, dark and mysterious to bright and colourful. From the acid belching cut-ups on Seal to a fucked-up Beatles wig-out on Dead Living Things, LCD Soundsystem on a psychedelic acid trip on the electro-popper of G.I.Jane to pumping and pulsating electro of Blood Bust, Arp #1 and Pump. There are some similarities New Yorkers Battles specially on tracks Billy, More and Pump. Memory is an epic pop song with menacing undercurrents and whimsical vocals with a rousing chorus. This track Vista is dark-disco that glows with neon sticks and broods with gothic moods, a fine combination of dark and light all at once. Highly Recommended.

Big Wheel and Others

Cass McCombs forthcoming double LP is somewhat of a magnum opus, this little ditty is the first track to see the light of day. It possesses a really infectious little melody that just eases along and you can't help nod along to it. A groove this catchy sounds like an old Rolling Stones jam with a funky drummer beat the Stone Roses would be proud of. Sit back relax and let it gently blow your mind. The new 22-song LP Big Wheel and Others is out 14 Oct.

Lucky 7

Zero 7, remember them! Are back with some new material - On My Own has the nice lazy beats we've come to expect from the Downtempo duo, electronic soul of the highest calibre. It's Henry Binns and Sam Hardaker's first single in four years and they sound a little Talking Heads with a house feel here and it features vocals from Danny Pratt (aka Danny Boy). Don't Call It Love on the b-side is also worth checking out - Welcome back, hopefully a new LP in the pipeline too.

Squeezing out the last few drops of summer

Sep 8th, 2013 11:20am


Icelandic songstress Emilíana Torrini's new album Tookah is out this week, she's had a varied career so far topping the charts with the 2009 song Jungle Drum from Me and Armini LP, she co-wrote Kylie's Slow, sung on Paul Oakenfold's Hold Your Hand, lent her vocals to the Thievery Corporation and performed on Gollum's Song for Peter Jackson's film The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.

For Tookah Emilíana goes back to her native Iceland to record an electronica, bossa nova pop record. For her seventh LP Torrini produces the kind of easy going pop that Kylie used to put out in her hey day. Speed of Dark is a punchy blast of pure pop brilliance, Torrini's voice sounds better than ever, pure pop of the highest calibre. Recommended.

100% infectious

Berlin/DC-based duo Benoit & Sergio last single Bridge So Far is a quality slab of house. But I'm more in love with the bubbling baselines of the flip - $100 Bill, an electro-funk jam that pulsates like the funky strut of previous smash New Ships.

"Got a $100 bill in my back pocket and I already forgot that I've got a girlfriend" sings Benjamin "Sergio" Myers.

 Another quality output from the Hot creations stable - Love it!

Oh My Lord forgive me

Another LP I missed posting up about at the start of the summer is Steve Mason's Monkey Minds In the Devil's Time.

Not an instant classic for me and I'm a big fan of Steve's previous work with the Beta Band, King Biscuit Time and Black Affair. Mason's last solo LP was 2010's excellent Boys Outside. In March I couldn't quite get into it, the LP has quite a few mad little interludes that spoil the flow for me. But there are some great individual tracks on here including this one - Oh My Lord, a rising indie-pop melancholic-gospel anthem with spiky-pianos and Steve's soaring vocals.

A kiss of sunshine on my face

London-based duo Basement Jaxx are storming back with new single What a difference your love makes at the end of this September. The EP features remixes of the title track by Miguel Campbell and Huxley as well as another jaxx original, Mermaid of Salinas.

Doing what Felix Buxton and Simon Ratcliffe do best, happy-go-lucky big party tunes that put a massive smile on your face, what a difference the Jaxx make.

Bigger Love

Matthew E. White released one of 2012′s best albums, Big Inner, still a firm favourite here at neoloop. The gospel-folk-psych-soul crooner gets the electro-pop treatment on lead track Big Love by experienced remixers Hot Chip. Staying pretty close the original with total respect, the Hot Chippers beef-up the bubbling baselines and clattering drums. Steel-pans subtly tinkle in the background and piano washes flutter over the driving bass, Matthew E. Whites guitars sound more urgent, giving the track lots of BIG love.

Phoenix Nights

Splendid remix of Phoenix's - Trying to Be Cool by A-Track. The Canadian DJ jacks up the indie-favourite into a shiny hand-in-the-air summer anthem. Breathing new life into the Bankrupt! cut and it doesn't even have to try to be cool now!

So let's raise the bars and our cup to the stars!

London Folk trio - Daughter lead by sultry singer Elena Tonra takes on Daft Punk's summer anthem Get Lucky.

Casting a darker shade, Daughters sensual emotionally-charged version is a chilled out reverberation of the dance floor filler. Daughter recorded it before Random Access Memories was released back in April and was well received by fans of Bat for Lashes, Fiest, Cat Power and Poliça etc. I like the Daughters take on it, but even better is the Pretty Pink remix of their version (and there are quite a few other remixes of Daughter version about), Pretty Pink's housed-up edit does the business.

Hotter than the Sun

Empire of the Sun have the perfect name, they always manage to release music in time for the summer and following the magnificent award-winning pop-opus, 2008 debut album Walking on a Dream this years album is no different - Ice on the Dune throws up hit after hit and has more catchy hooks than a mile of velcro. It's certainly soundtracked my summer, long drives to the beach and chilled out BBQ's on hot blistering weekends. It's hard to choose one track that would standout as the LP bursts with so many brilliant tracks.

It's a kind of guilty pleasure, it's commercial but don't let that put you off, you'll be playing this long after the last days of summer. So, I'm well late posting this one up on neoloop, but hey I've been busy enjoying the summer and listening to great music. Highly Recommended.

Top Tracks: DNA, Concert Pitch, Ice On The Dune, I'll be Around, Old Flavours, Surround Sound

Hot Summer Nights

Beautiful Swimmers, the Baltimore duo of Maxmillion Dunbar (AKA: Andrew Field-Pickering) and Ari Goldman released a new album - Son - recently, compiling previous 12" singles and a few new ones of sun-kissed nu-disco grooves. Maxmillion Dunbar has been doing pretty well on his own of late following the successful House of Woo LP.

This tune - Big Coast first materialised back in 2010 but still sounds fresh as a daisy in a summer meadow. With the summer coming to an end you can squeeze the last few rays of sunshine out with this LP as your soundtrack, should see you in to the Autumn months nicely. Highly Recommended.

Top Tracks: Big Coast, Swimmers Groove, Running Over.
