Evian Christ – Thrown Like Jacks

Another haunting Tri Angle records release. By 22 year old hip hop / down tempo producer Evian Christ aka Joshua Leary. If you like this kind of thing he’s released a mixtape “Kings and Them” which you can listen to here.

Balam Acab – See Birds

Ghostly goose-pimply track from the ‘See Birds’ EP, released on Tri Angle records.

Pollyn – How Small We Are

This is bit like Talking Heads and Tom Tom Club. In fact it is basically a cover of The Great Curve.

From the full length album ‘Living In Patterns’. You can buy the EP here.

Mathew Jonson – Dayz

Chillsey tech house (particularly appropriate for staring out of the window on a long bus/car journey).  From the Crosstown Rebels 085 release

Wildcookie – Heroine

Smooooooooth. From the album ‘Cookie Dough’ released on Tru Thoughts.

Bibio – Lovers Carvings (Letherette Remix)

Super chilled Letherette remix from Bibio’s ‘The Apple and the Tooth’ EP, released on Warp

Sepalcure – Taking You Back

From the compilation ‘Back & 4th’ released on Hot Flush, (featuring the likes of Boxcutter, FaltyDL, Scuba and Mount Kimbie). The Sepalcure record ‘Sepalcure’ is pretty sweet as well.

Shabazz Palaces – Chuch

This track is fresh. And I like how the full record “Black Up” is described by Sup Pop Records in this bio..

“..If Bedouins herded beats instead of goats and settled in Seattle instead of the Atlas Mountains, this would be their album. Forward thinkers but nostalgic for a sparer time when ancient astronomers only recognized five planets. Hip hop. Black light uses electromagnetic radiation to eradicate microorganisms, but shabazz didn’t come to kill a sound, just to shine their own incandescent lamp on this. Hear. Hard and clear. Fifty thousand years in the making. Honorable.—palaceer pink gators. Produced by Knife Knights.plcrs at Gunbeat Serenade Studio in Outplace Palacelands. It was recorded and mixed in Lixx-alog by Blood.”

Alpines & Maya Jane Coles – Why / Alpines – Ice & Arrows (Dark Sky Remix) / Alpines & Dark Sky – Tremors

Alpines are amazing. They’ve worked on some wicked collabs lately and have been remixed by loads of awesome people…
