Its been a while since a video really grabbed me and made a serious impression that stayed with me. I’d say the only way to describe FKA Twigs latest video is hauntingly beautiful and very disturbing at the same time. Co-directed by Twigs herself Papi Pacify is a vulnerable piece of down tempo that crosses somewhere between Portishead and Tracy Thorn’s Massive Attack years. The dark and brooding beats are perfectly infectious, but are over-shadowed by Twigs devine voice that dominates and carries the song throughout. Her. new EP Ep2 is due to drop here in the states Sept 17 and I already have my copy preordered, you should get yours.
Sei A just released a new Ep Blades of Brasil on Turbo Recordings . I had this EP on repeat all day just playing it over and over getting lost in thought as I muscled through my grind, each time I found some new small piece of the puzzle to love. Slow brooding builds, melodic tech heavy beats and warped out vocals, every thing is hitting on all cylinders here. This is my first introduction to this Scottish Producer and i’m a fan, it’s a mesmerizing three track experience with a ton of style and innovation and I’m looking forward to what’s next from Sei A. If you dug this check out his other releases here.
DC based Misun just released their debut Ep “The Sea” back in July and their already back with a free download. Hills and Trails takes some influences from Digital Cumbia and brilliantly melts them with some Spaghetti Western soundtracks reminiscent of Sergio Leone.
