Can't deny your lie

This has the most infectious groove, bouncing beats and claps forge an instantly catchy melody. Shay Lia’s soulful voice melts like butter over a hot-crossed bun, even though she’s singing Sorry baby, I don't have time for this, Leave Me Alone.

The young 22 year old Louis Kevin Celestin, known as Kaytranada has an impressive collection of remixes to his name, this adds to his original material which is also building nicely. Remember last years Bromance #10?

Your Love Will Set You Free from Caribou’s 4th LP Our Love. Dan Snaith has made an amazing album that picks up where 2010’s Swim left off, the Canadian artist who has performed under the names Caribou, Manitoba and Daphni has a knack of creating rainbow melodies and hypnotic dreamscapes. This tune whirls around your head filling your thoughts with colour and intrigue. 

The simple structure of the song is totally captivating, the lyrics are devastatingly heartfelt.

How hard it has been since I left you, 

You're my sweet thing, The only thing I want is to caress you, 

In my dreams dear, You are here beside me in my bedroom, 

All night dear, Hold each other like I never met you

A beautiful song from an incredible album - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

It's been nine years since cult folk singer Vashti Bunyan released her sophomore album, Lookaftering in 2005 following renewed interest in her debut LP Just Another Diamond Day from 1970. So that’s three full-lengths in 44 years, shame she’s not made more, as the quality of her third is just as good as the first. Bunyan says that her third full-length album, Heartleap, will also be her last so I guess we’ll have to savour this beautiful record.

It’s also worth checking out the Prospect Hummer EP with Animal Collective.

Ghana is a great little ditty taken from the Multi Culti Japan compilation LP.

Whoa, I’m in!

Nu-Disco Anthem

Big tune from nu-disco maverick Lindstrøm teaming up with fellow Scandinavian pop duo Say Lou Lou. Sounds a bit like the classic Norwegian singer Annie and her 2004 Anniemal LP, Games for Girls is currently ripping up discotheques everywhere.

Little girls with fancy toys, Say Lou Lou are ones to watch!

Paolo Conte, back with another LP, Snob has a flavour of South America, specially on this superb track Tropical with it’s jazzy trumpets and latin bongos. The master Italian singer, pianist, composer, and lawyer is still going strong at 77.

“A gruff smoker’s voice, a piano style that wanders from honky-tonk to tango palace to tony cabaret, and a weathered romantic’s world view have made Paolo Conte a well-known songwriter in Italy.” (The New York Times)

Snob, the new studio album by Paolo Conte produced by Rita Allevato contains 15 new songs: a return to the origins of music and texts that have made Paolo Conte an artist appreciated all over the world. A return that is also, inevitably, evolution and ongoing research; exploration of soundscapes and words that, as the old trouvailles, in addition to disclosing unusual meanings, are transformed into pictorial sounds and images.

Future Islands, a synthpop band based in Baltimore, Maryland, signed to 4AD and causing a bit of stir over here with the release of their 4th LP Singles. I have to confess not hearing them till now and was introduced to them by my mate Dave after watching the band on YouTube, a live show which showcases lead singer Samuel T. Herring’s unique performance and singing style.

The whole LP has many 80s synth-pop references combined with Samuel T. Herring’s soulful croon and freestyle vocal. Each tune is as good as the last proving that by calling your LP Singles states all these tracks are worthy of single status. I have to say I agree with the band and this is a sure fire shot for Album of the Year. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

You gotta put me on

Sunday morning and i’m in a Tribe Called Quest kinda a mood, after recently watching their documentary Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of A Tribe Called Quest, the 2011 documentary directed by Michael Rapaport I’ve been listening to a lot of their old stuff. Bonita Applebum was such a major track back in 1990 I remember at the time thinking this was a sublime tune that cemented A Tribe Called Quest’s place in hip-hop royalty along with De La Soul.

The song contains samples of Mathar by The Dave Pike Set, Daylight by RAMP, Memory Band by Rotary Connection, and Fool yourself by Little Feat.

Bonita Applebum was the second single from A Tribe Called Quest's debut album People's Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm.

A popular Why remix was made, which heavily sampled the song Why by Carly Simon. Another remix was done in 1993, with a new beat and new lyrics. There is also a third remix titled Bonita Applebum (Hootie Mix) that samples The Isley Brothers' Between the Sheets and also has new lyrics. Between the Sheets was briefly featured in the film Poetic Justice, which coincidentally stars Q-Tip.

Gargoyles gargling on


The first single from SBTRKTs Wonder Where We Land LP is still hanging around on my current playlist, a few month after release. A stand-out track with Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig gargling nonsense.

Still a massive tune.

Richard D. James new Aphex Twin LP, a new studio album, 13 years since Drukqs.

As per Aphex Twin’s extensive and momentous discography SYRO is a brand new challenge of obscure compositions. Opening with minipops 67 [120.2] [source field mix] it’s clear we are going on a long journey into the original and unknown.

A master at work.
