More stuff about the music and stories on this week’s Melodica – this week it’s all about bears (sort of). In tune with the Melodica aesthetic, covering a broad range of exciting, inspiring, beautiful new music from electronica to house to experimental. Melodica chart on Juno Download: here. THAT FUZZY FEELING: PROMMER & BARCK FEAT LOUIS LONGERLING – LOVIN’ A glorious deep, electronic, fuzzy love song from polymath Christian Prommer and his mates. It’s like a robot version of Donna Summer’s Love To Love You Baby. Very late night music. GET THESE ALBUMS There are seven hot recommended albums on this week’s show. Get them all. Radiohead – King Of Limbs Nothing new, just some great, classic sounding Radiohead, the boys at their moody, experimental best. Gil Scott Heron & Jamie XX – We’re New Here Jamie XX deconstructs and reconstructs Gil Scott Heron’s I’m New Here. A proper flowing album that is so achingly 2011. Panda Bear – Tomboy The Animal Collective dude with plenty of harmonies and beats in big reverb, predictably gorgeous. Sin Fang – Summer Echoes Experimental meanderings from the bloke from Seabear. Yes, you can tell he’s from Iceland. Altrice – Stem Altrice won a Caribou remix competition, now he’s taken the whole of Swim apart and made a new album out of it. Deep, experimental, even ambient stretches, but you can still feel Dan Snaith in there somewhere. Toro Y Moi – Underneath The Pine Funky, sunny, alt pop music, real songs, real instruments, music for the good times. Virgo – Resurrection A fine selection of unreleased music from the heyday of this group, the proto house sound of Chicago from the mid 80s still sounding fresh today.

Chris Coco’s weekly radio broadcast. An eclectic selection of brilliant new music starting with house and moving on to electronica, downtempo, acoustic and all sorts of other styles loosely connected to dance and electronic music. Let tastemaker Chris Coco guide you through his selection of the week’s best new music. In this episode it’s album week, there are no less than seven albums that we recommend you buy immediately, or at least as soon as they come out. Then towards the end of the show we drift into a selection of the currently happening deep house style. Cool or what.
