Happy Music Monday, and welcome to this week's picks! —Corbin
Oliver Wilde - Stomach Full Of Cats
There have been a lot of good releases on the "band" front recently. This track is very reminiscent of The Radio Department in vocals. Bored Nothing "Let Down" is also a very rad tune that has this shuffle guitar style going on as well. Oliver Wilde has a full soundcloud of fresh-ness, but this particular one is a gem.
Blood Diamonds has one of the best sounds in electronic right now. There's a well-placed use of steel drums, and everything is cohesive. Overall awesome producer. The B-side for the Grimes team-up, Ritual, is one of the most forward thinking tracks today, despite its age. Tracks normally last, what, one, maybe two months now?
How does this only have 20 plays so far? It's been out for 5 days! This is an awesome electro pop tune that sounds like M83. It's pretty awesome and this dude has a bunch of other tunes in his soundcloud that are definitely amazing.
Afro-Funk, or "Fuzz." These dudes are new and play afro-funk that sounds like '70s Benin sound. El-Rego and De Frank are two of my favorite afro-funk guys. You can start at Voodoo Funk if you like this sound. Or just listen to this whole Tal National record, Kaani.
This definitely has a sort of "artsy" singer songwriter thing to it. It's a good track; really well-produced sonically. Definitely looking forward to more from this artist.
