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

No Parties

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.


Django Django

Hail Bop

DD go for a more organic sound on this slightly wonky indie-pop track. The disorientating chord changes are typically eccentric.


Blood Diamonds


This trance-influenced trip-pop track will appeal to fans of Grimes' quirkier work.


Dirty Projectors

Buckle Up

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

Windshield Smasher

BMSR make psychedelic, guitar-heavy, synth-punk that retains a pop sensibility.
