Songs We Like - 14/10/2018

As we head deeper into spooky season, our usual collective roundup some of the best new music around. If you’ve (somehow) missed the memo, we’re currently in the middle of covering London Film Festival. There’s already been some fantastic films, so go ahead and rummage through some thorough reviews from our ever-vigilant film team.

 

Ghostface Killah – Buckingham Palace (ft. Kxng Crooked, Benny The Butcher & .38 Spesh)

 

 

Ghostface Killah is – in my opinion – the most consistent member of the Wu-Tang Clan. Back with a brand new album The Lost Tapes, a feature-heavy LP that returns to a 90s hip-hop style, Ghostface is as hungry and ferocious as ever. ‘Buckingham Palace’ runs at breakneck speed over chopped samples, allowing for each artist to lay down some fierce imagery with deathly precision. -Tom

 

HEALTH x Perturbator – BODY/PRISON

 

 

So this collaborative HEALTH album sure looks like a possibility, right? Following the unlikely pairing of the L.A. noiserockers with Soccer Mommy, HEALTH have joined forces with Perturbator for the relentlessly industrial ‘BODY/PRISON’. With melancholic hooks and screeching experimental electronica, ‘BODY/PRISON’ sits firmly on the catchier side of HEALTH’s backcatalogue. -Tom

 

Little Dragon – Lover Chanting

 

 

Returning with a new EP this November is Swedish synth pop angels Little Dragon, who tread the line between hazy soundscape and bopping funk on ‘Lover Chanting’. Beautiful synth flourishes build upon a neo-soul foundation packs a punch to get you, your lover, your grandma and your dog up out of their beds and dancin’ in the last of the autumnal sunshine. -Elliot

 

Selling – Keeping Txme

 

 

A pairing between Gold Panda and Jas Shaw of Simian Mobile Disco, is, on the surface, a delectable pairing. It doesn’t take long to realise that their joint venture as Selling is a true amalgamation of minds, a concept born of two musicians creating together rather than simply combining their respective sounds in forced monstrosity. ‘Keeping Txme’ churns with electronic beauty, kept afloat by a progressive beat and filled out with beautiful synth tones. Throw in a little Luke Abbott and surprise album On Reflection is certainly deserving of your time. -Tom
