Björk – Vulnicura

here is very little to say about the iconic Icelandic songstress Björk; a shimmering shining beacon in progressive pop over the last 25 years returns with a sublime and complex album in the form of ‘Vulnicura’. It is a slight insult to think anybody would have the audacity to...

DREWXHILL – Bullets

The delicacy of ‘Bullets’ by DREWXHILL is something to behold. The vocals are wrapped in a sense of solitude which transcends into a glossy bedroom aesthetic that the artist seems to have absolutely nailed. ‘Bullets’ is a penchant for escapism and the rather beatless terrain upon which the vocalists upper...

Anton Borin – You

Belonging to Sweden but now residing in L.A, Anton Borin conjures up an easy-listening house number where simplicity in production is shown at its very best. I’m sure you’ll all agree that there’s nothing sonically ground-breaking with this record but what Anton has executed so well here is a...

Grynpyret – I Forgive

I very rarely stumble upon this sort of trap-like dubstep that isn’t cheesy and shit as fuck. Most of it sounds like it’s been made on an N64 using sound clips from Zelda but ‘I Forgive’ certainly strays away from the atrocious. Its structure is far from formulaic and...

Cain – Vayu

Cain’s only recently come to my attention via his Savan EP on Huntleys + Palmers last month. Taking obvious influences from Indian culture, he fuses dance music with classic middle-eastern vocal chops. It’s a sound Giles Peterson will no doubt be pioneering and with more and more of this type...

Lxury – Let Down

It’s been a while since one of Annie Mac’s ‘Free Music Monday’ tunes have been of any worth. Enter man-of-the-moment, Lxury. His sound is a real fresh of breath air owing much of it to 90’s inspired rave and wistful melodies. He pins his production with simple vocal cuts...
