New tracks from Bjork, Rapsody, Iglooghost and more...
‘English Weather’ is the perfect song to celebrate the spectacularly shite September we’ve been having. But honestly, I’m not interested in the lyrics - have you heard the riffs? It’s like Ram Jam’s ‘Black Betty’ just collided with an Arctic Monkeys track. Plus, there’s a cool part where the guitar sounds like a harmonica. It’s bluesy indie at its best.
Bored of doing the same things over and over again? LA rock group Sego’s ‘Whatever Forever’ perfectly captures this sense of cyclic ennui accompanied by a restlessly looping riff. It’s both frustrated and apathetic, which is basically my permanent emotional state.
This hectic EDM mindfuck from Iglooghost is likely to be too much for some people. It’s a trap-garage-glitch hybrid that refuses to sit still for a split-second, throwing pitch-shifted sped-up rapping, digital percussion blasts, melodised clangs and all manner of other noises at the listener. You’ll either be mesmerised by it, or it will give you an anxiety attack.
