Keep Shelly + Gonno + Ariel + Forest S.

Posted by Jakub


Never write off Keep Shelly In Athens, its genre bending when it comes soft pop music with an 80s haze over yet fusing in electronics that makes me want to put the song on repeat.

Tim Sweeney is doing an amazing A+R job with Beats In Space. Gonno rides a mysterious line that takes him into a dark caribbean digital world comes out the other end into a colorful synthetic space.

Ariel Pink strips it down and experiments just outside the AM gold sound with Jorge Elbrecht.

Tri Angle grabs up another huge talent for their roster with the signing of Forest Swords. Composition wise he always keeps it interesting by sitting percussion in this distant muffled space that I love.

I’m in love with that Keep Shelly in Athens song. First heard it on this week’s Big Sonic Heaven podcast and instantly fell in love.

What a motley crew of tunes. Well selected, Jakub.

I think Ariel Pink’s track might be my favourite in this set so far.

All great tracks. I’m almost wishing the “Weight of Gold” borrowed just a little bit more from “The Ecstasy of Gold” though, such a great tune.
