I’ve been listening to Haley Fohr’s Circuit des Yeux project for a while, in particular her 2015 album In Plain Speech (via Thrill Jockey). The New York Times’ Ben Ratliff has described her as “a bit folk, a bit Nina Simone, a bit loud-minimalism.”
The instrumental of the first half of Do The Dishes sounds glaringly like Thai luk thung music. Love it!
I don’t want no ice cream love, no, that’s too cold for me! My love is warmer than a chocolate fudge!
Younger Brother is an English electronic duo. Their debut album A Flock of Bleeps was released in 2003, followed by The Last Days of Gravity in 2007 and Vaccine in 2011.
According to Wikipedia, after making a remix for a charity record, Simon Posford (Shpongle, Hallucinogen) and Benji Vaughan (Prometheus) decided to come together in the studio to create their own type of electronic music that has been described as “unclassifiable.”
All I Want is a 9-minute trip off their 2007 album The Last Days Of Gravity.
I find this upbeat music from northern Ghana a real treat!

Ukrainian sound artist Dmytro Nikolaienko is releasing The Sounds Of Pseudoscience on June 26 by Graphical Recordings and Nikolaienko’s own Muscut label. The album is pitched as “a tribute to early-electronics’ golden era” and “intended to sound like a library soundtrack for a scientific documentary that does not exist”. The video for Under The Integral adheres nicely to the retro-science theme.
New video from Real Lies is another evocative love letter to London!
