First up we have British producer Graphics, who is marked as one to watch for the future. The weirdest thing about this track is not the spooky vocal, or the skeleton’s ribcage xylophone but the layering of all the different sounds, samples and influences; influences that shouldn’t work together but somehow in this single Mamma Grizzles, does.
This track is suited to daybreak in Ibiza, well what day break in Ibiza should be like, beautiful, calm, humbling and reflective rather than the raucous, beer soaked, drug fuelled, over the hill raver infested, lecherous cesspit of regret that it really is.
To a Frontier Sounds favourite now, not only for her beautiful voice but for her links to one of our catchment areas, France. As previously mentioned here, Charlotte Gainsbourg has just released an albums worth of previously unreleased studio and live recordings in a collection called Stage Whisper and this track Anna, is taken from that release.
To my singles selection of the week now, juxtaposing as far as possible with my first track, here is some feel good indie from Casiokids. Golden Years is a perfect, good-time head bobbing remedy to counteract the January blues.
