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: PANTHA DU PRINCE – XI VERSIONS OF BLACK NOISE
An album for this week’s That Fuzzy Feeling. It’s the remix version of Pantha Du Prince’s Black noise, with excellent deep and ambient electronica remixes from a stellar cast including Animal Collective, Four Tet, new Melodica faves Walls and Moritz Van Oswald.
A KIND OF BRITISH MELANCHOLY
You can’t really beat the warm feeling of young men getting a bit melancholy. It’s kind of sad in a lovely way, we don’t have a proper word for it in English, it’s Duende in Spanish, Saudade in Portuguese.
There are two wonderful examples of this mood on the show this week in Alex Turner’s Tonight and Metronomy’s Trouble, taken respectively from the Submarine movie soundtrack and the new album The English Riviera.
LIME AND PINK
I’m very fond of the Burnski remix of Wadsworth’s new single Lime and Pink. This is proper C21 detroit at it’s best. It’s a great colour combo too, of course.
