Red Baraat :: Sound The People
A beat-heavy collection of international sounds, this band is literally all over the place in a boundary-pushing mix of afrobeat, bhangra, hip-hop, jazz and other genres.
The Mystery of the Bulgarian Voices :: BooCheeMish
A sound you could classify as ethereal, alien, or both. Ancient gregorian harmonies collide with Middle Eastern time signatures for something truly unique. Features DCD’s Lisa Gerrard
Grimskunk :: Unreason In the Age of Madness
Aggressive metal-reggae-funk, which is not something I generally like, but this one has some sort of undermined charm to it.
Johnny Marr :: Call The Comet
Johnny Marr, who provided his distinctive liquid guitar sound to the Smiths and many others, returns with a solo album that shows not much has changed.
The Essex Green :: Hardly Electronic
Hooks as sharp as diamonds, girl/boy vocal harmonies, jangling guitars… what else do you need to play this summer?
