Burial + Four Tet : Nova

Two of the finest UK producers of introspective-post-club music reunite to release a new tune entitled “Nova”. Burial and Four Tet pick up from where they left with their release of “Moth/Wolf Club” and their collaboration with Thom Yorke. “Nova” is a tune that is floats and is propelled by lofty synth stabs that ride on a straight-forward 2-step/garage beat – a simple, gorgeous and effective tune.

Atoms For Peace: Roseland Ballroom 4.5.2010 & 4.6.2010 Review


Via HiFiCartel

Atoms For Peace, the only supergroup these days that seem to make any sense and actually can surpass the original bands that each member originates from. Yes, I said it. Forget RHCP and Radiohead – Thom & Flea should just continue touring and making music with Atoms For Peace. Just watching the 2 of them onstage have a dance off with each other throughout the night showed how much fun they can really have with their music. There is a definite return to innocence for Thom and Flea as they flail around to these new arrangements of Thom’s solo album “The Eraser”. It is as if they are taken back to their days when they were just starting a band. Overall a rare treat to see such musicians of great caliber, Flea, Thom Yorke, Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker, and Mauro Refosco – all on one stage. It goes to show that musicianship is something that still shines through in this crazy industry.

Flying Lotus opened both nights, literally destroying the soundsystem with his sub-bass goodness. Highlights of his sets were him dropping Mr. Oizo “Stunt” & “Postif” and then closing with an a capella of Burial into Radiohead “Idioteque”.

If Atoms For Peace are playing in a city near you – go. Or if any of you are making your way out to Coachella, make sure to stick around for the final night.

Mount Kimbie – Maybes

Erol Alkan included Mount Kimbie in a mixtape for XLR8R as one of his current favourite tracks of the moment. Mount Kimbie is a London based duo that produce simple, minimal thoughful tunes that are very visual. They evoke rainy images of the UK but in a very epic and hopeful way not like Burial’s dark, melancholy way. There are also a few moments that are reminiscent of Prefuse 73/Savath & Savalas. Speaking of Burial, his collab with Four Tet is amazing. Wolf Cub / Moth via GvB

Lily Allen x Duke Dumont

Whenever I listen to Duke Dumont I feel super chilled out or like I am a bunch of pills. I love what Duke Dumont does to this Lily Allen track. Definitely a track you play on the way home after a long night. Duke Dumont’s productions are super visual sounding, very similar to Burial.

La Roux X Skream vs Foamo Remix

Foamo provides a re-edit of Skream’s remix of La Roux’s In for the Kill. Foamo turns the track into a Burial-esque sounding track with a little more kick, definitely an end track to a rainy night. Speaking of Burial what is he up to I want more music from him.
