Welcome to our weekly RSS feed friendly round up of this week's daily music recommendations, just in case you are reducing screen time or don't want to ride the dictatorial algorithmic rollercoasters on social media.
Benoit Honoré & sean Curtis Patrick - Avocationals (Beacon Sound)
As with all good obituaries, Benoît Pioulard and Sean Curtis Patrick remember the lives rather than emphasize the loss, of all the people that perished on the sunken boats of the Great Lakes. Gentle, melancholic but beautiful, touching, tape loop based, analogue ambient music for Beacon Sound.
MADMADMAD - MADMADMAD (STAC Records)
Another slice of (not) slow music to fire you out of the Friday cannon into the weekend from MADMADMAD. 2019 seems to be a vintage year already for a new wave of post punk & here is another fresh take that surfs various waves & swerves about recklessly, even into house & techno to great effect for STAC Records.
MEDLINE - A QUEST CALLED TRIBE (MYBAGS)
The hip hop rooted, all live, instrumental soul jazz funk sounds of multi-instrumentalist Medline meet the visual arts of Stephane Carricondo in this heartfelt & honourary arts clash tribute to A Tribe Called Quest for the ever great My Bags label.
Vieo Abiungo - The Dregs (Lost Tribe Sound)
Rescued from dusty hard drive obscurity by Lost Tribe Sound check out this cohesive collection of disjointed, listenably experimental, global folk abstractions and de/reconstructions from Vieo Abiungo (aka William Ryan Fritch).
Meitei - Komachi (Metron/Seance Centre)
Merging distant field recordings of life's industrial & natural surface noise with a rhythmic but very Japanese ambient aesthetic & sound palette, Meitei / 冥丁 sonically & subtly laments the fading importance of Japan's customs & rituals for Métron/Séance Centre
Clever Austin - Pareidolia (Touching Bass)
Launch into the week with the all live, state of the art, jazz injected, microdosed, fresh funk and genuinely neoteric soul fusion sound of Clever Austin for Touching Bass.
Seahawks - Eyes of the Moon (Cascine)
