The Bonus Track: Moby, The xx, FUR, Johnny Cash

 

Crazy clown time

Director/musician/photographer/­legendary odd-ball David Lynch is releasing a remix EP of his album The Big Dream for Record Store Day (19 April). The bright red, transparent collectible 12” features tracks remixed by Moby, Bastille, Hot Since 82 and Bjorn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John. And if that’s not enough Lynch in your life, book tickets to The Barbican on 20 June for In Dreams: David Lynch Revisited, a live homage to the music featured in his work. Still creeped out by the Twin Peaks theme tune? Probably best to stay away. Listen to Moby’s take on The Big Dream

 

Back to bass-ics

Welsh house duo Bodhi have been tipped for big, bass-heavy things this year by the likes of Giles Peterson and have notched up over two million views on SoundCloud with their minimal beats and ridiculously uplifting 90s synths. Get your Easter bank holiday weekend off to a cracking start (sorry) by catching them at The Queen of Hoxton, London on 17 April and listen to their version of The xx’s “Angels”

Fur real

With rapping from Josh Solnick over strings, horns and ­effortless beats, multi-talented 8-piece FUR are our band to watch for hip-hop spliced with jazz and afrobeat vibes. Their cellist Benjin has just released The Ramadan Project, which saw him write and record a song a day during Ramadan, while living in Palestine. Watch FUR perform their single “Biannual Coffee Cups”

 

Next week’s biggie ...

It was a case of Cash in the attic when John Carter Cash discovered some forgotten tracks of his father’s buried in the archives. To mark what would’ve been Cash’s 80th birthday, Columbia are releasing Out Among The Stars next week, twelve “new” Johnny Cash songs. Watch the video for “She Used To Love Me A Lot”
