This week's selections chosen by Tex Ranger of LiveFi:
(1) Death From Above 1979, Turn It Out
Album opener to the band's debut (and solitary LP of original works), the song kicks so hard the sensation on your eardrums can be described somewhere between a blitzkreig and "OMFG"....and it doesn't give you a moment to breathe. An astonishing piece of blistering noise.
(2) Battles, Ice Cream
Nonsense math-rock scholars Battles' lead single from their second LP 'Gloss Drop' feels every bit of summer as it's title hints towards. I love the over-use of exhalation and grunting in this one.
Vocal-percussion: You're doing it right.
(3) The 2 Bears, Warm and Easy
A fantastic tune to kick back with a beer in the sunshine. The synths wash over you like the warm, sexy rays and cooling breezes of summertime. Lovely jubbly.
(4) Hermitude, HyperParadise (Flume Remix)
Flume is beginning to make a bit of a splash in the music pool. Here's a tasty little piece by his hand from last summer.
(5) DJ Premier (Feat. Rakim, Nas & KRS-One), Classic
Look at that line-up. All artists involved have pushed the boundaries of hip-hop in one direction or another to create iconic sounds and styles of their own. No more to be said. Instant classiqué.
(6) Pomrad, Pomslap
The Belgians do make things other than chocolate you know. Here's my favourite export I've found so far...
