Flying Lotus is responsible for the latest installment of the Stones Throw podcast series. The mix, entitled Lovers Melt, is half an hour long and eschews the hazy electronica that FlyLo is associated with. Instead, the LA producer went for something along the line of 60s kitschy, jazzy soul and sparse rhythmic tribal drums. No theme, no loops, no tracklist; FlyLo described the podcast as “records found in the valley”. You can subscribe to Stones Throw podcast by clicking through here .
You Are My Poison by Visions Of Trees
London duo Visions Of Trees’ Joni and Sarah have been making steamy pop music that delivers a similar pulsating and woozy electronic mood to the likes of Broolyn musicians like Telepathe and Teengirl Fantasy . Their first 7”, Sometimes It Kills, which came out this year on Moshi Moshi , gives a distinct and shady British chilliness that separates it from the more luminous American warmth. You Are My Poison is a podcast that resembles their musical orientation, which also delivers a more uplifting, dancefloor-friendly atmosphere. It features Nguzunguzu’s Got U – big, big tune.
Mixtape by Tom King (No Pain In Pop)
London label No Pain In Pop is known for its concentration on working with leftfield music that retains a melodic and modern aesthetic. Artists involved include Forest Swords , Echo Lake , A Grave With No Name and the aforementioned Telepathe, just to name a few. Tom King from the label has chosen a selection of ambient, synthetic sounds with an alternative rock twist that is perfect for chill-out, easy listening.
