add void

Found Fridays

2013’s high musical calibre has been strengthened further by another sterling week of exciting new releases and finely crafted videos. The range is really pretty stunning, with noteworthy offerings coming in a huge array of genres. Our playlist veers from the upbeat, shimmering and sashaying grooves of recent discovery Orquestra (thanks Dummy) and old guns Daphni and Octo Octa, into oOoOO’s k-holed techno/R&B hybrid ‘Mouchette’ before slipping fully into the blackened industrial corpulence of Author & Punisher, Kwaidan and a highlight from this week’s top album, Pharmakon’s outstanding ‘Abandon’. To round it off there’s a 9 minute opus in electronics from Keith Fullerton Whitman and a 10 minute bat-shit rhapsody in psychedelia from Brooklyn-based 13-piece Nymph’s upcoming LP.

And, as if that wasn’t already enough to keep you going for the weekend, here’s a tetralogy (there’s no such word as quadrilogy!) of spine-tingling video pieces, too. There’s Julianna Barwick’s glacial and capacious ode to the cinematic, there’s trap artist Rome Fortune’s nauseatingly trippy urban nightmare and there’s Sam Amidon’s sharp, sly and astute walk in the woods. In short, there’s shit loads.
