Moire – Party Girls (Disguise & Moire Edit)

Overcoats – Smaller Than My Mother

East Coast folk-electro-soul duo Hana Elion & JJ Mitchell have encamped to Ireland for the summer to record their debut LP.

B Dolan – Who Killed Russell Jones?

This ODB tribute by B. Dolan borrows the style and format of Bob Dylan’s “Who Killed Davey Moore?” to examine the brilliant, controversial and tragic arc of Russell Jones (AKA Old Dirty Bastard.) The repeated question of the song’s chorus demands an answer, though the verses suggest there might be enough blame for all of us to share.

Mark Barrott – Cirrus and Cumulus

The International Feel label boss returns to his ‘Sketches From An Island’ series, a sonic snapshot of Ibiza’s soft, cerulian glow. Fans of Steve Reich will be pleased to jump straight into the the polyrhythms of ‘Cirrus & Culumus’, which also shows since of his love of Ghanaian music.

Aïsha Devi – The Saviour On Spilled Blood

Besides founding her label, Danse Noire, releasing leftfield electronic music from the likes of IVVVO and Vaghe Stelle, Swiss-born, Nepalese-Tibetan electronic producer @aisha-devi’s latest solo productions are further testament to her personal evolution. The ‘Conscious Cunt’ EP explores different perspectives on womanhood and the dichotomy between materialistic femininity under societal pressure and spirituality.

“It’s an EP about sluts, awareness, death, and women in a patriarchal society… enlightenment, violence, resistance, mothers, daughters, consciousness, Guy Debord, Vedas and eternity. It’s also a high-five to my grandmother who raised me and passed away early this year.” – Aïsha Devi

‘The Saviour on Spilled Blood’, a reference to motherhood, is a slow-building epic, using Devi’s dark, chanting voice to accumulate energy and emotion.

Brian Deady – A Darkness

New Single off the forthcoming album Non – Fiction , due later this year.

Laurie Anderson – Gravity’s Angel (Bottin Edit)

‘Gravity’s Rainbow’ was originally on Laurie Anderson’s 2nd LP (1984) – with imagery apparently borrowed from Thomas Pynchon’s Gravity’s Rainbow (so says Wikipedia). Bottin straps a beat to the track and retrofits it for 2015.
