The Playlist: SBTRKT / Fergus and Geronimo / Bat for Lashes / Django Django / Blood Diamonds / Dirty Projectors / Black Moth Super Rainbow
Released on his SoundCloud this week, "Gloss" finds SBTRKT in a blissed-out haze, all melodic hooks and chilled-out, summer-evening euphoria.
Fergus and Geronimo
Post-punk that's both retro and innovative. Could easily have been a lost gem from 1979.
Bat for Lashes
A haunting piano riff begins this melancholy ode to a troubled friend. Subtle, heartfelt and profoundly moving.
DD go for a more organic sound on this slightly wonky indie-pop track. The disorientating chord changes are typically eccentric.
This trance-influenced trip-pop track will appeal to fans of Grimes' quirkier work.
Scuzzy, lo-fi garage punk. The recording quality lacks the low-end to make it a classic, but "Buckle Up" is an interesting little nugget nonetheless.
Black Moth Super Rainbow
BMSR make psychedelic, guitar-heavy, synth-punk that retains a pop sensibility.
