Cigarettes After Sex
Cigarettes After Sex have become one of the biggest word-of-mouth phenomenons of recent times, and today they are finally releasing their gorgeously cinematic self-titled debut album. Full of smokey pop-noir and sumptuous songs of love, Cigarettes After Sex un-spools like the most achingly romantic of movies: immersive, cohesive and transporting. The album sets a scene and sustains a mood that reels you in deeply.
“Greg Gonzalez lifts the echoey guitars and washes of sound into
another league, with amazing vocals and great melodies.”

Bambro Koyo Ganda
Bonobo has announced a new EP, featuring a unique and stirring analog version of Migration favourite “Bambro Koyo Ganda”, and the completely new song “Samurai”. The analog version of “Bambro” strips away the dizzying house-tinged atmosphere in favour of an understated pulse and synthesizer arpeggiations, highlighting the hypnotic chanting and acoustic flavour of Moroccan band Innov Gnawa.
“Mind-bending gems transformative enough even for
the most critical ears.”

Contemporary pianist James Heather releases Modulations: EP 1 via the Ninja Tune imprint Ahead Of Our Time, which is Coldcut’s re-launched playground for free expression and experimentation. These sparse pieces ebb and flow, slowly enveloping the listener in a subtly subliminal fashion. Heather’s minimalist approach allows the instrument’s rhythmic, tonal and melodic capability to take centre stage.

New EP lead by a single of the same name that positions Twin Wild as a serious rising star in indie rock. The band explain: “‘Control‘ is different to what we have ever released before. The chorus started as a rhythmical melody we had been playing with for a while for fun and we didn’t even plan for it to become a song really until we wrote the lyrics. This song is that little smile you get when karma has its way.“
“Indie rock with its heart on its sleeve, each song seems to become
an anthem, destined to be sung back by countless fans.”
