Vezelay - Seratonin (VIDEO)

vezelay - sedative from vezelayvideo on Vimeo.

First track taken from Matthieu Le Berre's new E.P 'Lyre', forthcoming on Planet Mu.  Sounding like a less hectic and more pop oriented Clark, beautifully crafted lead synths, minimal drums and haunting vocals are stitched together effortlessly. The whole E.P is dope from start to finish and you can check the rest of the tracks here

Lyre is officially released June 20th

Mount Kimbie live - NPR Radio (VIDEO)

More live Mount Kimbie goodness, this time courtesy of Npr's 'Tiny desk concerts' The set doesn't have the same power and atmosphere as their Abbey road session but then again they're in a small public radio station as opposed to a legendary recording studio and it looks well cramped in there. This time however you get the added bonus of 'Ode to bear' as well as 'Maybes' & 'Fields'.

Audio download link can be found here, courtesy of Npr.

Mount Kimbie - Abbey road Debuts (reminder)

I recently posted about the awesome Mount Kimbie's forthcoming Abbey road session. That session aired last night and if like me, you missed it, its now available to watch on the 4oD website.

Essential viewing.

Bibio - Mind Bokeh

Tomorrow sees the release of Bibio's 'Mind Bokeh'. Certainly more accessible than his early albums but still riding a similar theme to that of 'Ambivalence Avenue' , 'Mind Bokeh' sees Wilkinson opt for a more poppy vibe while still retaining that technical virtuosity and creative approach that sets him apart from the average producer. The track 'Excuses' (video below) fuses Acoustic guitar with chilled Boards of Canada style synths, field sounds and switches it up between percussive loops, hiphop breaks and an 808 drum machine,  all building up into a psychedelic climax of arpeggiated synth lines and glitched up spoken word loops.
