After an amazing April (talking about new LP) and a very interesting June about to come, May is a transition month! Not many releases kept my attentions, those are my choices:
Daft Punk – Random Access Memories (Electronic)
We had to wait 8 years waiting a new album, but it worthed! Ok, they published 3 years ago Tron Soundtrack and it was great, but LP is different. Their first song published (with Pharrell Williams) is already an international success. Also Julian Casablancas (The Strokes frontman) and Panda Bear appear in this amazing work. Exuberant.
Tricky – False Idols (Trip Hop)
This LP is a perfect combination between first and last works of this incredible artist! So both if you like most his first period or the last you will wnjoy for sure. You will enjoy the beautiful italian voice of Francesca Belmonte in many songs of this nice album. Enigmatic.
The Fall – Re-Mit (Alternative/Indie Rock)
How is possible to talk about a band that published already something like 30 LPs? Many pages of my blog probably would be necessary but i’m not interested into (and i think you as well). So i just say that it’s always great to listen an ‘old’ band still creating music and feeling inspired! Sarcastic.
ATOM – The Eccentric Electrics of Atom & Friends (Electronic, Experimental Techno)
Collection of songs composed over the years (from 1998 til 2011) from this amazing electro artist (real name Uwe Schmidt). You can listen quite but also intense (pure Atom style, like the example below) songs in this LP. Atmospheric.
CocoRosie – Tales of a GrossWidow (Indie Rock, Indie Electronic)
If you don’t know this amazing and fresh french duo (actually they are sisters), you missed a lot. Their style is unique and it’s very difficult in a time where everything is already done basically. Hypnotic.
Oblivians – Desperation (Garage Punk, Indie Rock)
Coming from the ’90s this american band from Memphis will surprise you with their guitars. To those who likes more scratching guitars than ‘chic’ and sophisticated riffs. Visceral.
Bibio – Silver Wilkinson (Indie Electronic, Electro-Acoustic)
English composer Stephen Wilkinson published this new album on the fascinating Warp Records. Recommended if you like to relax and dream about a far away place (while you are stuck at work in a rainy day). Ethereal.
See you next month guys! Be ready to amazing new releases coming in June!
