The playlist – the tunes of the week at OTR HQ
Including Angie Stone, Cathy Davey, Bell X1, NxWorries, Lo Moon, Coldcut, Telephones and others
Cathy Davey “New Forest” (Hammer Toe)
A humdinger of an album from one of the most intriguing pop acts we’ve produced in this land.
Angie Stone “Wish I Didn’t Miss You” (J)
The very last tune played by Carl Cox as he closed out his Space Ibiza mix. The Dublin footballers missed this one.
Green Velvet “Flash (Eats Everything remix)” (Relief)
A whole rake of re-ups for the classic on a new release with Eats Everything peforming the best paint job of all
Telephones “Vibe Telemtry” (Running Back)
A razzle-dazzle of wibbly-wobbly house, techno and disco from Henning Severud blended into the most Balearic of sounds. They do this kind of thing right in Norway.
NxWorries “Yes Lawd!” (Stones Throw)
Praise the Lawd! Anderson .Paak and Knxwledge join forces for an all-beats-blazing set of the funk, where both singer and producer get to show off their swagger.
Hiss Golden Messenger “Biloxi” (Merge)
A song to make you hum with delight from M.C. Taylor and co’s sixth album “Heart Like A Levee”
Coldcut “Only Heaven” (Ahead Of Our Time)
Matt Black and Jon More’s first new track in a decade has Roots Manuva coming on strong with the melancholy and feelings.
Bell X1 “Arms” (BellyUp)
A career redefining album full of muscle, moxie, fibre and musical derring-do on their seventh run around the field
Lo Moon “Loveless” (Columbia)
The spirit of Mark Hollis and Talk Talk looms large in this gorgeous single from the Los Angeles band
Powell “Sport” (XL)
Off-kilter electronica rubbed through with a streak of punk rock adventure from the producer who never takes the route most travelled.
