Frederik Valentin & Loke Rahbek – Scarlett

At the other end of the ambient spectrum today with something extremely tranquil and enjoyable to lose yourself in. Eight minutes of dreamy synths, plucked guitars and cosmic loveliness. Taken from their second collaborative album Elephant following 2017’s equally chilled Buy Corals Online.

Bullion – Hula Hula

This is massively reminiscent of Toro Y Moi’s album Boo Boo from a few years ago, both vocally and in the production. Really love it. Very stripped down and minimal but the few elements there are all work together beautifully.

Sufjan Stevens, Lowell Brams – The Unlimited

Sufjan has made a ‘new age’ (his words, not mine) album with his stepfather which is coming out next month, and this is the lead single. It’s brief but pretty intense: definitely more Age of Adz than Seven Swans. Intrigued to hear the LP.

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.

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.
