Brainwaltzera – kurrytee [MIDI_2_CV]

This is a couple of years old but I only just stumbled upon it. Floaty, evocative synths and lots of industrial clanging. Quite Boards of Canada-esque if you’re into that kind of thing.

Nicolas Godin – We Forgot Love

We Forgot Love is taken from Nicolas Godin’s solo album Concrete And Glass, and is very reminiscent of his work as one half of Air – not that that’s a bad thing. The album’s a bit of a mixed bag, but this – with a blissfully fragile vocal from Kadhja Bonet – is lovely.

Yumi Zouma – Cool For A Second

You could probably make a fairly convincing argument that this isn’t really doing anything massively original and is a bit beige. I take this on board, but ultimately it makes me feel warm and happily nostalgic and sometimes that’s just what you need.

Beatrice Dillon – Workaround Eight

This is taken from Beatrice’s new album Workaround which came out last week on PAN. The entire album is great – really engaging, stripped-down, glitchy electronica – but this is the track that stood out for me.

Saint Jhn – Call Me After You Hear This

The first song I heard of Saint Jhn’s was Roses, and I’ve been into him ever since. This is from his Ghetto Lenny’s Love Songs album from 2019, and is absolutely brilliant.

Bayonne – I Know

A wonderfully joyous record. Hope it sticks around for a while as it’s got summer written right through it. Kinda reminds me of Alt-J, but in a good way.

Okay Kaya – Ascend And Try Again

I was a little bit disappointed by her new album as I loved the previous one, but this track is a clear standout. Hauntingly weird.

Nina Kinert feat. Linnea Olsson – Lonely Cloud

Kicking this off with one of my favourite records from the last couple of years. Definitely should have got way more attention that it did. Just amazingly beautiful.
