It’s been a lopsided month with some great discoveries, yet with many music-less days.
The playlist is here – the ones missing out are the most diverse bunch so far: Moutcho, Leo Mkanyia & The Swahili Blues Band – Tung’ande, Deradoorian – The Eye (Komodo instead), CELLONET, Shigeto, Woset, 18+ / Cake (Suicideyear Remix).
Inspired warm electronic music from Latvian duo Domenique Dumont. Feel-good end-of-summer vibes here!
Taken from Comme Ça, out on the Parisian label Antinote.
Sa. Ka. Na. is a song by the Japanese experimental rock band Lizard, taken from their 1980 album Babylon Rocker.
Solid techno darkness from Germany. Tolouse Low Trax is the solo project by Detlef Weinrich, also a member of the group Kreidler.
Mutado Pintado (aka Mulato Pintado) takes a lot of credit for the success of a techno acid act Paranoid London to whom he contributed the lyrical edge.
Daymé Arocena is a talented singer from Havana who started singing before learning to talk. Listen to Dust, taken from her debut album Nueva Era at Brownswood. The song is apparently inspired by a dusty appartment in Toronto which gave breathing problems to Daymé who is asthmatic.
Jazzy house from the Japanese DJ / producer Hokuto Sato, taken from his Jazz On The Moon EP (out in July on Neovinyl).
Korallreven are Swedish hipsters who sound like they are trapped on some tropical island rather than somewhere in Iowa!
Danny are an American band signed to Elestial Sound. They make sweet music to soundtrack a daydream of a tropical holiday! Soundcloud link.
Natasha Khan (aka Bat For Lashes) is back with a set of folk and psych covers, produced by Dan Carey and backed by Brighton noisemakers TOY under the name Sexwitch.
