‘Moonlight’ /// Appleblim (2011) Minimal? Yup. Unpredictable? Yupper. This salutary wooze veils slow pulse beats and bass like backlit smoke

.

.

.

‘Il Se Fait Tard’ /// Francoise Hardy (1965) A hangover is almost a religious ritual. I always find the undertones of a chanson fit for a fix.

.

.

.

‘Bored’ /// Destroy All Monsters (1978) The A-side is called ‘Bored’. The B-side is called ‘You’re Gonna Die’. She means every word she sings.

.

.

‘Constantly No Respect’ /// Black Devil Disco Club (2006) Synth disco EP 1978. Nothing. Stops. Rephlex reissue 2006. Everyone’s caught up. Resumes career 28 years on.

.

.

.

‘Is He Handsome?’ /// Rings (2008) Imagine a band featuring the literal sister of Avey Tare (Animal Collective). Now hear them. Looped emotions.

.

.

.

‘Synthesizer’ /// OutKast feat. George Clinton (1998) Ludicrously multi-layered collabo between OutKast & George Clinton; the grace + grandeur of a national anthem.

.

.

.

‘Your Dream Lover’s On Video Again’ /// Glass Candy (2003) Between arthouse glam infancy + virtual disco, Glass Candy spent some years with a heel in each. Like so.
