Lorenzo Senni, Oneida & Rhys Chatham, Frida, Huntly and Cloud Nothings

Jack 2

This week we dug a little deeper to find you some real gold to sink your proverbial teeth into. Senni belts out a pounding beat, Oneida and Rhys collaborate on a brilliant shoegaze / punk influenced number. Frida shines bright while Huntly and Cloud Nothings prove that they aren’t one trick ponies.

Those stabs are what sold us. Solid production all around, but there’s something extra to be said about the way those hats fall over each other, creating a driving rhythm that’ll get your feet moving.

Flavours Of: David Toop / Roy Montgomery

We’re enjoying this recent wave of New York minimalist/rock collaborations. Decidedly noisier than the Tim Burgess and Peter Gordon partnership, but still a really well formed partnership and sound.

Flavours Of: Grizzly Bear / Kate Miller-Heidke

The perfect start to a week. Gilligan’s voice properly shines here, and when it soars into the chorus it draws a smile from ear to ear.

Music for the up-coming sun-drenched seasons. The perfect soundtrack to an 8 pm sunset.

The cleaner turn they’ve taken on their recent releases could’ve gone horribly awry. Our faith was well placed though, and we’re treated here to something that’s fresh, fun and unmistakably Cloud Nothings.
