There’s a great selection of new tracks out this week, all here in one handy playlist to help you through Friday afternoon and/or soundtrack your weekend wanderings. To start off there’s a lovely bit of Eno-inspired embryo-ambience from San Francisco dronesters former selves. We then quickly segue into some bassy big name heft from Holden and Jon Hopkins (remixed by Nosaj Thing) before taking a left-hand turn into another brilliant ethno-synth workout from High Wolf. After that there’s some industrial abrasion from Metasplice, bouncing, dutty house from OL & ¥oin, a swooning and swaying remix by The Cyclist and the stunning new track from synth star Stellar OM Source’s upcoming LP (surely set to be one of the year’s highlights). Rounding us off is some heartfelt electro-acoustic melancholy from Petrels semi-side project Bowed Idly.
Finally, check out a couple of the week’s best videos. Firstly there’s a pseudo-psychedelic, 90s Global Hypercolour splurge by our pal Laid Eyes for Maria Minerva’s Soul Searchin’ and secondly what we think is a trailer for a collaboration between photographer Susu Laroche and sound artist Stanley Schtinter – just over a minute of body images cloaked in swirling smoke, scratched celluloid and veils of macabre mystery. Anyone who can tell us more will be thanked forever!
