Throwback : Arctic Monkeys – My Propeller

A little reminiscing here taken from The Arctic Monkey’s 2009 third studio album ‘Humbug’. The opening track ‘My Propeller’ is the tune in focus, and what a tune it was. After the success of their opening two albums it was difficult to see how the band could keep the Sound fresh. ‘My propeller’ opened Humbug and blew me away at the time. Such a mellow, chilled and calculated song, no big crescendos or complications, just a stellar track. Heard it recently and just figured I’d shtick it up here, since they have a new album about.

 

Rival Consoles – Them Is Us

A gorgeous piece released on the newly thought out Adult Swim record label, which invites artists to release a track each week on their platform. Rival Consoles’ track ‘ Them is us’ is the epitome of bliss. A chilled, almost

trademark sound this producer brings each released composition has me eagerly anticipating his work. This little surprise gem is nestled in my latest playlist and is the perfect accompaniment to a long train journey home. Vibrant, mellow and delocate music. Check it out.

Brién – Luv Getter

A little sampling masterclass here from Belfast’s ‘Brién’. This tune is such an uplifting one with all those chopped vocals paired with the subtle baseline. A real gem from this upcoming young NI musician. He joins a stellar cast of Belfast born producers such as Bicep, Hammer, Swoose, who have been killing it in recent times. Keep up the work chief. Super.

Jazzuelle – Rebirth

One of our favorite dj’s, South Africa’s Jazzuelle has just dropped another atmospheric powerful house album on us. ‘Rebirth’ brings a sense of suspense with it yet plods along with a sense of purpose. This is a collection that takes us on a journey above and beyond, the chilling chopped vocals in the album title track ‘rebirth’ create a weirdly blissful trancelike setting. This is a fantastic little preview entirely. Check it out.
