And you thought Real Estate was chill(wave) for summer lazy days? try a bit of Sun Araw, its makes falling asleep fishing on a calm pond sound like a monster truck rally.
Take does a nice edit of the classic Fall In Love by Slum Village, short n sweet.
More from Detroit, Moodymann isn’t really a blog musician, I like to imagine him as vinyl only and buying his stuff strictly from his site. He has stuck to his sound and might be one of the more pure musicians out there, enjoy this one, its dirty.
A new EP from Sbtrkt this week, one of the few artists i’ve found out thru just direct emails and him posting comments on the blog. 2020 seems to be maybe a new direction for the whole dub sound, its more straight forward like early Detroit House, if that’s whats happening then i’m really excited for things to come.
If you’ve been following this whole lo-fi lazy summer meets surf rock movement with bands like Real Estate, Washed Out, The Young Friends,Small Black, etc. there is a whole range of tones and tempos. One band that needs more releases out is this Beach Fossils group which I think has some great guitar parts, i’ll keep you updated on new material by them since they sound pretty promising.
Sbtrkt is one of the guys that has hit me over email with tracks, I really love his production work, he has a line list of releases this year and one that really impressed my ears was his remix for Modeselektor, looking forward to the vinyl.
If you’ve read the blog for awhile now you know I love Lusine, I suggested him and Hatchback to remix Tycho awhile back for Coastal Brake. This single which came out this week shows off more of his new direction of using a lot more female vocals which is the perfect follow up the his Two Dots single.
Below is the new Jonsi(singer of Sigur Ros) music video, I like his direction, he definitely stays with his sound and is pretty fearless visually.
