James Blake Shares Video For “Barefoot In The Park (Feat. Rosalía)”

“Barefoot in the Park (feat. Rosalía)” is one of the many highlights on Assume Form, with The FADER calling it “a sensual number that is addictive,” SPIN pronouncing it “a speedball of minor-key melancholia and flying sparks,” and Idolator declaring the collaboration “lingers in the mind long after the song ends.” Assume Form showcases Blake’s continual evolution as an artist, and Consequence of Sound proclaims the album “a remarkable achievement by one of the most original songwriters of his generation.” HYPEBEAST observes, “the British musical mastermind has provided listeners with one of the most exciting installments yet in the young artist’s career,” and The Associated Press asserts that “listening to ‘Assume Form’ proves Blake is more than a musician’s musician – and that he could be on his way to pop star status.”

Peter Cat Recording Co. have announced their debut album, ‘Bismillah’

Taking their enigmatic name from Haruki Murakami’s jazz club in Tokyo, Peter Cat Recording Co. trade in a kaleidoscopic blend of gypsy jazz, psychedelic cabaret, space disco, bossa supernova, Bollywood and uneasy listening. It’s an unlikely but masterful balance which makes the New Delhi five piece every inch the sonic anomaly in their hometown as how they read on paper. The band beguiled and frustrated in equal measure in 2018, with the release of ‘Portrait Of A Time 2010-2016’, an anthology album which gathered together re-mastered versions of various hidden gems from the band’s ramshackle back catalogue, previously recorded in the living room of frontman Suryakant Sawhney. Whilst the title track found its way onto Tracks Of The Year lists at the Guardian & NME, it was tricky to get a firm grip on the five piece who – despite hailing from the Hindi-speaking capital of India – emerged sounding like a twenty first century big band reboot.

Ceschi & Factor Chandelier’s ‘Sad, Fat Luck’ LP out now

Ceschi’s music lives in some liminal space between left-field hip hop, folk punk and indie rock. It’s hard to explain, so on planes he generally tells people that he sounds “something like like Ed Sheeran,” and they nod. He has worked with Saskatchewan, Canadian producer Factor Chandelier for over a decade as they formed the backbone of their Fake Four Inc. record label. Their 2015 record, “Broken Bone Ballads” built a cult following within the indie rap and DIY punk communities. 2019’s ‘Sad, Fat Luck’ is part eulogy to many lost friends, part breakup album, part US-born-Latino analysis of Trump’s America, and part ode to aging, featuring guest vocals from Sammus & Astronautalis. Today Ceschi & Factor Chandelier release their innovative ‘Sad, Fat Luck’ LP. You can listen here.
