The Park - 'The Process...'


The Park has an interesting little piece out in the world.

Their EP 'The Process' came out yesterday on the heels of their lovely recent single 'Belleville' which I muchly dig.

The EP plays out in a jazz/rock/progressive manner with glimpses of beat-work production and a very much live feel from the San Franciscan quartet. At times it can sound like lost Ummah productions played live!

Have a gander at a couple of my favourite tracks and pick up the whole thing at the wonderful world of Bandcamp.

Letherette - 'EP2'

Wolverhampton's Letherette have just released their 'EP2' following hot on the heals of their... um, 'EP1'.


These guys had me excited last year with their stunning remix of Bibio's 'Lover's Carvings' (a track that came extremely close to being my top tune of the year) and their own tune 'Blad', which was not far behind.

Well, 'EP2' is out and about, my vinyl copy sits snug waiting for me to pick it up from Conch Records.


Monday Five - 20th June, 2011

One. Madlib feat. Frank Nitty & MED - 'What Can U Tell Me?'
Two. Floating Points - 'Marilyn'
Three. Letherette - 'Shoe Be Do'
Four. TOKiMONSTA feat. Gavin Turek - 'Little Pleasures'
Five. Dinosaur Jr. - 'In A Jar'

New Floating Points + New Floating Points x Fatima

Safe to say I am always fiending for new shit from the U.K.'s Floating Points.
A classically trained musician plying his craft in electronica; this kid has SERIOUS talent and is one of my favourite producers of the last 2 years.

He has blessed the music world with some seriously amazing tunes over the past couple, and his restraint in only releasing top quality (READ: all killer/no filler) means that I always purchase the vinyl versions.

The latest to appear come in the form of his very sweet 4-tracker with Fatima, 'Follow You' EP released on June 6th and his own 'Marilyn' 12" released this week, both on the always fresh and innovative EGLO Records.

Check out jazzy club-groove 'Marilyn' and b-side 'Farucx' on the ambient tip by hitting the titles.

These kind of things REALLY make my day.
Hope you enjoy too...

Donwill (Tanya Morgan) & Suff Daddy - DPPLGNGR EP

Donwill of Tanya Morgan and the scandalous Scando beat-maker Suff Daddy have done did a record together!

Well, more like a mixtape/beat-tape collab which seems to be the flavour of the month right now.

I have always liked the beats that Suff creates, enough to buy vinyl copies of his 'Hi-Hat Club (Vol.2)' EP and 'Gin Diaries' EP anyway.

Here we have the Don' doing his thing over some of that very hotness from above for a tasty little result...

Blu - 'Jesus'

Blu is as prolific as he is good!

Here is his latest offering under the alias 'B' titled 'Jesus'.

I have had a good listen through the course of today and I am digging it, yes! 
Low-slung 90's type beats that get as much shine as Blu's rhymes, it's the porduction roster that raises eyebrows for me: Alchemist, Madlib, Hezekiah, Knxledge...

Particularly into '4U' and title track 'Jesus'.
