Like most of the music I listen to, I was introduced to this Scottish alternative hip-hop group by the internet’s busiest music nerd, aka Anthony Fantano, way back in 2011 when their debut EP Tape One was released. Last year they were signed to Anticon Records and they re-released Tape One last January in various formats, including cassette tape, which is nice. I hoping that they release an album this year now that they have a label backing them, so fingers crossed for that.
This is the new Lapalux single which was released a week or so ago, and is off his debut album “Nostalchic” which is released on Brainfeeder in March 2013. I personally can not wait for it, and I’ve been a big fan of Lapalux for a long time now. I imagine he will deliver as always with his album and I recommend checking out his back catalogue because every release has been on point since day one.
I was toying with whether to post something from the new J. Cole ”Yours Truly” EP or this. I might post a new J. Cole track tomorrow but for now I’m in love with this and it’s been on repeat for a while. I first heard a radio rip recently and it was an immediate download once the single was available yesterday.
If you’ve follow this blog for a while, then you know I’m a big fan of James Blake and I used an image of him as this blogs avatar for a long time. His new album is expected to be released in early April and I highly recommend checking out his back catalogue if you’re new to him.
So brief in it’s existence yet probably my favourite Burial track ever. Not even 2 minutes long this track is found towards the end of Burial’s seminal album Unture. I honestly don’t know what it is about this short track that moves me so much but I love it. I guess that’s what makes music, because I can’t explain to anyone why I like it so much, but it doesn’t really matter, just listen and enjoy.
