The playlist – the sounds of the week at OTR HQ
Tunes and tracks from McAlmont & Butler, Milk & Bone, The Chemical Brothers, Kamasi Washington, Jack J, Hudson Mohawke, Tranquility Bass and many more
McAlmont & Butler “Yes” (Hut)
For the day that’s in it
Milk & Bone “Little Mourning” (Bonsound)
Dashing debut album from one of our SXSW 2015 faves. Montreal duo Laurence Lafond-Beaulne and Camille Poliquin’s “Little Mourning” is full of lush, soft-focus, minimalist electronic attractions and atmospheric, hooky dream-pop.
Hudson Mohawke “Lantern” (Warp)
The forthcoming album from HudMo is a belter with the producer back on his game with tracks like “Scud Books”
Kamasi Washington “The Epic” (Brainfeeder)
An album which truly lives up to its billing as Washington and co come out swinging, swaying and swaggering.
Jlin “Dark Energy” (Planet Mu)
Heavyweight next-gen electronic wizardry from the Gary, Indiana young gun and footwork queenpin
The Persuasions “Good Times” (Capitol)
From 1972 album “Street Corner Symphony” and as sampled by Jamie xx on his forthcoming “In Colour” album
Flying Lotus “Essential Mix” (Soundcloud)
Tranquility Bass “They Came In Peace” (Exist Dance)
In memory of Tranquility Bass frontman Michael Kandel who died during the week. The freak fly is now flying beyond the sky.
Jack J “Thirstin’”/”Atmosphere” (Future Times)
New killer summertimes vibes from Jack “Something On My Mind” Jetson
The Chemical Brothers “Sometimes I Feel So Deserted” (Virgin)
From forthcoming album “Born In the Echoes”
