Welcome to our weekly RSS feed friendly round up of the last seven day's music recommendations.
Jefre Cantu-Ledesma - Tracing Back The Radiance (Mexican Summer)
Unifying the sounds of a disparate & detached group of America's finest leftfield musical purveyors, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma creates a greater whole in this dispassionate, yet achingly beautiful, ambient meditation on the increasing isolation of mother earth's most social of animals for Mexican Summer.
Safe Trip Catalogue Digital Reissues
In the music deluge labels are an important filter & it's nice to see one of my "go tos", Young Marco's, Safe Trip label start a digital catalogue avalanche of cosmic house, deranged disco & weirdytronica. Start at the top and work your way down.
Champagne Dub - Drops (Faith And Industry)
After yesterday's classic sounds I thought I'd explore the dub continuum today in one of its mutant forms with the DIY, lo-fi, post punk, "psychedelic dub rituals" of Champagne Dub's excellent & slept on LP from last year for Faith And Industry.
Yabby You & King Tubby - Walls of Jerusalem (Pressure Sounds)
It's been a while since I've had a deep roots and dub reggae injection and to help me "Chant Down Babylon", Pressure Sounds have just dropped the classy, classic Yabby You meets King Tubby production, Wall of Jerusalem. Golden era JA music with messages that still resonate.
Ahmedou Ahmed Lowla - Terrouzi (Sahel Sounds)
The way Ahmedou Ahmed Lowla uses programmed drums & past their sell by date synth sounds to transport the Mauritanian traditional sounds into a disorienting, retro futuristic, Afro/Arabic/Anglo space all of its own is really quite something. Another great release from Sahel Sounds.
Tomaga - Extended Play 1 (Negagive Days)
Generically dysfunctional duo Tomaga unite (wo)man & machine to create a ritualistic percussive base for their mystical, Orient evoking, jazz sprinkled modular synthscapes for Negative DAYS to remarkable, hypnosis inducing effect.
Félicia Atkinson - The Flower And The Vessel (Shelter Press)
Overriding beauty nagged by distant unease permeate Félicia Atkinson's LP for the unfailingly excellent Shelter Press. A meticulous & exquisitely moulded, electro acoustic parallel dimension snuggles her ASMR triggering poetry whilst familiar & comforting sounds resonate through the sonic vagary to beguiling effect.
