More stuff about the music and stories on this week’s Melodica. All the shows are archived on the Chris Coco page at Mixcloud. There’s a new Melodica chart on Juno Download: here. Follow Chris Coco on MixcloudTHAT FUZZY FEELING: GANG COLOURS – FANCY RESTAURANT The new single from the Southampton-based producer Will Ozanne is a gorgeous slice of calm, sort of pastoral, post dubstep electro pop. It’s a personal and heartfelt and beautiful love song, basically. Can’t wait for the album, The Keychain Collection, released at the beginning of March. Here’s the Ifan Dafyyd remix. FENSTER Fenster plays de-constructed pop-music, layering subtle distortions, melodic chords and city soundscapes under dream narratives and schadenfreude. That’s what it says on their Soundcloud page. I think they sometimes sound a bit like Mercury Rev. Their album, Bones, is out on Morr Music. SCUBA – PERSONALITY The new Scuba album is here. It’s a big mash up of electronic music styles, perhaps not as coherent as his last, Triangulation.
