MONDAY MUSIC: JAMIE XX

MONDAY MUSIC: PLAID

Coming out this week: Plaid’s latest offering, The Digging Remedy. Lovely, lovely.

OUT OF THE CAVE

Our alltime favourite band Radiohead is about to release a new album which you can digitally enjoy here and here or live on their upcoming world tour there and there or pre-warming yourself by a fire while watching this and listen that (even upside down if you like).

THE COLOUR IN ANYTHING

James Blake released his highly anticipated new album, The Colour in Anything. Get it on iTunes, stream it on Spotify or pre-order the CD or vinyl LP here.

GOING BLANK AGAIN

It’s the moment when the lights go dark just before the show: in anticipation of their imminent new album, Radiohead have wiped their entire digital presence, clearing their website and all social media accounts… with a chirping bird appearing on their Instagram today (& gathering 13k likes in 4 hours…) Dawn chorus.

GOING HOME

Ásgeir – Going Home (Offical Video) from One Little Indian Records on Vimeo.
I kind of missed this when it came out in 2013, but now, as I‘m coming home soon again, I feel like having heard it before.

A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC

What does music from Hell sound like? No mortal transcription may exist except for a tiny patch of canvas butt in Bosch’s The Garden of Earthly Delights. And of course, Tumblr would be the one to play it. Listen to it here, or for a choral arrangement, here.

MONDAY MUSIC: JAMES BLAKE

No video yet, but James Blake recently premiered on BBC Radio One a new track from his forthcoming album Radio Silence – we can’t wait.

MONDAY MUSIC: MASSIVE ATTACK

An unexpected reunion of Tricky joining Massive Attack for Take it There, on their latest EP Ritual Spirit, returning to form five years after their last offering.

DIRTY
