new: Au Palais, Altered Hours & Mano Le Tough

  • I can't get over how soothing this song is, even at ear splitting headphone levels. It's tender and sweet, but also full, meaty and juicy. Imagine M83 as a delicate steak. 
From the ever impressive Sounds of Sweet Nothing label (Gross Magic, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Jewellers) comes Au Palais. Originally in Toronto, now based in London, they've ticked all the boxes to becoming a "hot musical commodity", Pitchfork, hip label and, London wise, a gig at the Shacklewell Arms. It seems any decent London band I hear have just played a gig there. Checking the listings in advance may be the only thing for it.

Get the Tender Mercy E.P here (digital or 10").

  • This one also via. The Sounds of Sweet Nothing, this time just a blog post from their Tumblr. But yeah, I'm digging this massively! From Cork, Altered Hours are journeying to the centre of the mind on an epic rambling psychadelic journey. Music to get lost in for sure. Interesting to see where this goes!

  • Tasty electronic sounds from Mano Le Tough. Here's the title track from his new E.P as well as snippits from said E.P, which is out now.
