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: PROMMER & BARCK FEAT LOUIS LONGERLING – LOVIN’
A glorious deep, electronic, fuzzy love song from polymath Christian Prommer and his mates. It’s like a robot version of Donna Summer’s Love To Love You Baby. Very late night music.
GET THESE ALBUMS
There are seven hot recommended albums on this week’s show. Get them all.
Radiohead – King Of Limbs
Nothing new, just some great, classic sounding Radiohead, the boys at their moody, experimental best.
Gil Scott Heron & Jamie XX – We’re New Here
Jamie XX deconstructs and reconstructs Gil Scott Heron’s I’m New Here. A proper flowing album that is so achingly 2011.
Panda Bear – Tomboy
The Animal Collective dude with plenty of harmonies and beats in big reverb, predictably gorgeous.
Sin Fang – Summer Echoes
Experimental meanderings from the bloke from Seabear. Yes, you can tell he’s from Iceland.
Altrice – Stem
Altrice won a Caribou remix competition, now he’s taken the whole of Swim apart and made a new album out of it. Deep, experimental, even ambient stretches, but you can still feel Dan Snaith in there somewhere.
Toro Y Moi – Underneath The Pine
Funky, sunny, alt pop music, real songs, real instruments, music for the good times.
Virgo – Resurrection
A fine selection of unreleased music from the heyday of this group, the proto house sound of Chicago from the mid 80s still sounding fresh today.
