It’s about time for #noise to get some love. @newmerator started the week off with a song called “Come Wander with Me / Deliverance” by Swedish artist, Anna von Hausswolff. The song is from her most recent album, The Miraculous, which packs in musical journeys around every corner. Not sparing any expense for the sound she wanted, she went out of her way to get her hands on an Acusticum Pipe Organ: “equipped with 9,000 pipes, built-in percussion (including vibraphone and glockenspiel), recording/looping tools, and nefarious sounds produced by submerging the pipes halfway underwater.”

When it comes to #grime, the selection is probably best left in the hands of Londoners. Thankfully, we’ve got a few and one of them, @goldengatsby, put us on to Hardy Caprio. The Croydon native seems to bringing a little different type of energy then you’ll hear from Skepta and JME, but that’s the beauty of music? Here’s “SoundBwoy 2”:

For those who didn’t know that Flying Lotus does more than music, now’s a good time to pay attention. Besides winning the ‘best title award’, his new short film, “FUCKKKYOUUU”, made the official selection at Sundance 2016. If anyone understands what’s going on in the movie, don’t hesitate to let the rest of us know.

In other news, B.o.B. must’ve gotten a hold of the newest drug because he’s convinced the world is flat and is not shy about his opinion. He’s been putting out lots and lots of ‘evidence’ over the past 48 hours and it’s quite entertaining. Neil deGrasse Tyson even tried to tweet some sense into him, but to no avail. A full recap of all arguments can be found here.

Don’t sleep on…


Japanese producer, Anchorsong. He first popped on to the radar at SXSW in 2009 with live production in front of impressed crowds and he’s been steadily improving his craft since. His music contains the sort of novelty lots of us are drawn to in #electronic and his latest release, “Ceremonial” (Tru Thoughts), isn’t going unnoticed: “Anchorsong is absolute fire” - Gilles Peterson. Here’s “Last Feast”:
