Beth Ditto & The Shoes cover Cerrone's Supernature. Couldn't agree more.
Everything we’ve missed this week, but deserves a little exposure. We’re getting hammered by emails, our inbox is suffering, but it’s for the best. We just recently got accepted in the Hype Machine index so people are flocking in and leaving hot tips for us to discover.
However, with the amount of music I have to spin, I can only select a few to do write ups on – it’s a one man-operation here, and my grey cells are dwindling by the hour – so here’s a little weekly bonus selection of music we haven’t had the time to cover but like nonetheless those one liners is where I usually start my posts. It’s packed with the latest tracks, gems, and dancefloor goodness you’ve come to expect from Sodwee.com. HIT PLAY NOW, Relax :
Leo Stannard breaks a few hearts, plays guitar on a London rooftop and looks good doing it.
“I See You Tiger” by Via Tania takes you back to the great era of huge, powerful vocal performances brilliantly coupled with sprawling orchestras, listen :
Bright Spark Destroyer‘s “Permanent State”. A Quintet from London / Oxford. Their sound is complex, layered and yet sounds casually laid back. At times channeling some of Radiohead’s previous efforts. At times, more of a Caribou feel to the sound. “Permanent State” is taken from the forthcoming LP, ‘Our Future Shipwreck’.
Hailing from Oxford (another?!), Maiians debut EP ‘Tokyo’ is out now on Idiot King Recordings and proves once again that English music is certainly some of the most creative around at the moment. With “Lemon”, Maiians deliver some genre bending kaleidoscopic electronica like Four Tet and Caribou. With 2 drummers on set and in the studio making sure you do not leave without your good fix of grooves, perfectly synced beats and addictive synth and guitar lines. I think you’d agree :
NAO, drops another huge track. Can’t wait to see that gurl live. This time it features up-and-coming outfit Abhi // Dijon on this collaborative masterpiece of some of of the greater alternative R&B you could possibly find these days. Do not miss out :
Belle is from the country that sits on top of the United States, a country where music is just as interesting as their fellow continentals below, I mean’t Canada. Belle (from Toronto) offers great R&B jams and I chose “Sunset in Paris” to illustrate the talent we came across :
Duncan Murray remixed The Night VI’s brilliant “Heroïne” tune. And obviously succeeded in giving the track a new direction. Deep house like I love it. Playable at any time, any location. Well done dude :
