Darkside “Psychic” (Other People)

Deep, dark psych, low-slung Krautrockish sounds and hissing drones from Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington. “Golden Arrow” from the album follows

Boban & Marko Markovic Orchestra “Zivot cigana” (Piranha Musik)

Brassy bravado from the mighty Balkan maestros’ forthcoming “Gipsy Manifesto” album.

Hackney Colliery Band “Common Decency” (Wah Wah)

Mo’ brass as the London based group hit all the right spots with panache and guile.

Fort Romeau “Trust Me” (Ghostly International)

Mike Greene turns on the style with a slice of bubbling, blissful, 3am euphoria

Arcade Fire “Reflektor” (Merge/Mercury)

The more you listen to this super-fit groove, the more excited you get about the forthcoming fourth album.
