THAT FUZZY FEELING: WASHED OUT – EYES BE CLOSED
Washed Out is a bloke called Ernest Greene. This is the first single from a forthcoming album on Sub Pop called Within And Without, recorded with Ben Allen who co-produced Animal Collective’s Merriweather Post Pavilion album. So expect more big, floaty, epic sounds in the same vein as this excellent song.
VIRGO FOUR – IT’S A CRIME
Caribou’s Dan Snaith has remixed something from legendary 80s house producers Virgo Four. It is, as one would expect, rather good in an old school / new school house kind of way.
Radiohead release the first in a series of remix 12″ singles of tracks from the King Of Limbs album. This one featuring Jacques Green’s take of Lotus Flower and a Caribou version of Little By Little. The next release will feature tracks remixed by Nathan Fake and Mark Pritchard.
MAN MAKE MUSIC
Man Make Music is a new label from Mixcloud’s Nikhil Shah. The First release is a single from Melodica favourite George Fitzgerald.
White Elephant – Sir John
Redux Records from Leeds, UK have just released a fine single from White Elephant, it features some fine acoustic guitar playing and it’s what you’d call Balearic for sure. They are, according to the Redux website, currently working on an album of ‘acoustic soul’. Nice.
