New: Atoms For Peace-‘Default’

 

 

I’ve not posted for quite a while on this, but fear not. I’m back! That’s for my three or four loyal readers, I know you’ve missed me a lot (probably not but it makes me feel better). Well I’m back to write to you about how much I love this new track from Thom Yorke and Flea’s band Atoms For Peace‘Default’ is so mysterious and sparse, very much in the vain of Thom’s solo record ‘The Eraser’. This tune is SICK. Love it. Thom’s a genius. Enough said.

Track: SBTRKT-‘Surely’

New SBTRKT man! That’s all that needs to be said. This is a bonus track from his terrific self-titled record from last year. It could have fitted in perfectly with those tracks, the epic drum beat in the background the only difference.

Sisi BakBak (Thom Yorke?) Remixes SBTRKT

I hope this is actually true, but apparently Sisi BakBak is Thom Yorke. This remix of SBTRKT’s ‘Hold On’ from the new ‘Hold On’ 12″ is super. Listen below:

The Top 20 Tracks Of 2011 Number: 19

Number 19: Radiohead-Staircase

When Radiohead released their eight studio album The King Of Limbs in February, little did we know that the best track they put out wouldn’t be from it. Staircase was left off TKOL but came to everyone’s attention when recorded during the bands Live From The Basement’ performance. Quite different to the mostly electronic record it was left off, ‘Staircase’ is a synth-rock gem with snappy guitar riffs and intricate basslines. The synths give the track a powerful atmosphere.

The Top 20 Tracks Of 2011 Number: 20

Number 20: SBTRKT-Wildfire [Featuring Little Dragon]

SBTRKT has remixed a wide range of artists, such as Radiohead, Mark Ronson, MIA and Underworld, so it is no surprise that his self-titled debut features many influences. ‘Wildfire’ is a smooth slice of chill-wave electronica that builds slowly.  Yukimi Nagano of Little Dragon provides the perfect vocal for this track, fragile and soft.
