Milk & Bone

Fri, May 22, 2015, 10:34


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)

FlyLo at large in the Beeb in 2009. As found by Una Mullally on the amazing MixesDB site, a real rabbit-hole of class DJ mixes from the last few decades

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”
