King Slim – Choir Practice

#NewMusic from London, England

Absolute no nonsense crackly beats from King Slim and dead pan lyrical delivery courtesy of Sonnyjim on this exquisite slice of hazy hip-hop. The expanding horns (???) that appear as if from nowhere, play off against the slightly faster, yet equally loose guitars (???) so smoothly. Whilst the instrumentation has confused the heck out of us, one thing we’re sure of is that this is a must listen addition to your week in music.

Isadora – Visions

#NewMusic from London, England

This track is full of crafty juxtaposing parts. The depth of the opening bass swell, countered almost immediately by Isadora’s almost angelically sweet vocals totally intrigued us. The style of the beat tempts you into thinking you’re going to be slapped about by its toughness, when in fact it’s far more gentle to you. The blend works to craft a highly infectious piece of pop.

The Velvet Hands – Only Blame Myself

#NewMusic from London, England

The skittering beat at the start of this track totally caught us off guard. By the end we were fully on board and bouncing around the room, “woah-oah”ing like the best of them. There’s a relaxed feel to the way these lads perform together, yet at the same time this tune is so full of energy. Impressive!

Sterling Grove – Way I Used To

#NewMusic from Montreal, Canada

Slowly, slowly this one builds with its misty forest by the like feel. Then, it just opens up infront, like a clearing in said forest. This is a real early morning festival tent pleaser, spacious and gently euphoric. The vocal lines are sparse throughout the song but when they’re there, they give you that little extra taste you were looking for.

MetronOhm – Wabi Sabi (Can’t Complain)

#NewMusic from Los Angeles, USA

What a fine piece of feel good music this is. There’s a summer daydream back drop courtesy of the guitar wash, a punchy step coming from the drums and its subtle tambourine touch, rounded out by a plump and bounding bass line. The multiple layers of lead singer Annabelle Maginnis’s vocal are the sweet cherry on top of this delicious ice cream sundee of a song. We think the LA sunshine probably has a lot to do with bringing the best out of this exciting trio. Long may it shine. Fine production from Teddy Roxpin also.
