More stuff about the music and stories on this weekâs Melodica – this week it’s all about bears (sort of).
In tune with the Melodica aesthetic, covering a broad range of exciting, inspiring, beautiful new music from electronica to house to experimental.
THAT FUZZY FEELING: BURIAL – STREET HALO
The first new material from Burial in a couple of years is only currently available on vinyl. The 12″ on Hyperdub Records features three new tracks in typically deep and dark Burial style. The three tunes are Street Halo, NYC and Stolen Dog.
MY PANDA SHALL FLY
Great name, excellent cover, and lovely music of course, especially the Throwing Snow remix that’s on this week’s show. My Panda Shall Fly are Suren Seneviratne, Finn Ryder and Theo Garman, their home down, London via Sri Lanka.
RECORD STORE DAY
Saturday April 16 is Record Store Day, the day we all get a chance to support our local life-support system by getting out and buying some exclusive goodies from our local independent store, if there is one. I recommend getting to Rough Trade East, my shop of choice, extremely early (last year the queue was massive) to pick up a copy of Tracey Thorn’s limited 10″, You Are A Lover, played on this week’s show.
New Peverlist single on Hessle Audio is Dance Til The Police Come. The b-side, Fundamentals, is more Melodica. The promo pic is Soooo London.
Art Department have delivered the essential album of the week. It’s called Drawing Board and it features a new version of their massive club tune Vampire Nightclub plus a stack more tracks in that deep, moody, modern house style.
