As we rumble into February and leave a rather fun January behind, I wanted to plug my favourite tracks of the first month of 2014.
In no particular order...
My standout track from Actress' new album 'Ghettoville' out on Ninja Tune / Werkdiscs. A proper 16 track album of surprisingly varied material well worth your attention.
Annie Clark returns with a new album at the end of February. The latest single is catchy as hell, features vampish sci-fi artwork and she's giving away an MP3 of 'Birth In Reverse' on her site (if you're willing to give her your email address).
Fanfarlo's last album was impossible to dislike and the first single from their next is equally easy-on-the-ear and feels wildly romantic. There are shades of Talking Heads in the first single 'Landlocked' and as of this week, courtesy of I-D magazine, you can listen to the full album on Soundcloud HERE.
Machinedrum and Jimmy Edgar team-up with Jamie Lidell for their JETS project.
Supreme new track from Boyz Noize featuring the one and only. Thanks to The Most Radicalist Black Sheep at BBH for the tip-off.
The first track off Kelis' forthcoming album 'Food' produced by Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio) on Ninja Tune is available to stream and download on her site. Also, released this week online is a Mount Kimbie remix, which you can stream HERE.
