16-Bit - Le Hanwell Hustle: BOOM BOOM BOOM GROWL SCREEEEAM BOOM@!
BBU - Please, No Pictures ft Das Racist: Dug in to the Unreleased, Remixes, Collaborations Das Racist collection, and while lots of meh going on, I loved this track. Yes, get kids to do your rap choruses.
Braids - Peach Wedding: Off the 7'' split with Purity Ring!
Buraka Som Sistema - Hypnotized: The new album Komba didn't do much for me, but this awesomely goofy track is... ummm.. goofily awesome? yes.
Find The Others - In Time: spirit-lifting beautiful folk music from the self-titled album
Gramatik & Brale - New Generation: hot breaks from the b-side comp Official & Bootleg Remixes, Colabs & Rare Tracks.
Haruka Nakamura - Graf: gentle pulses and dreamytime snuggle music from Afterglow.
Hayzee - Press Start: Oh it's on, drop that quarter and the shit is gonna fly.
How To Dress Well - Suicide Dream 1 (Orchestral Version): The choral presentation reminds us all that we live in a post-Bjork world.
James Ferraro - Earth Minutes: Ferraro caused a firestorm for his topping of Wire magazine's best-of lists. I see the divisiveness. But he has a magic that falls somewhere between Max Tundra's early stuff and the outsider-art Americana of The Residents. Not exactly the most populous of critical cross-sections.
Jeffrey Foucault - Northbound 35: Totally earnest! Totally folk! from 2004's Stripping Cane.
Ljones - Autumn Groove
Ljones - To The Groove: Yes, there is groove here. Some slick downtempo for the 2012 crowd from Soul Below.
Nujabes - Fellows: I don't know how it happens, but some days I'm just all about the BREAKS.
Pepe Deluxé - Lying Peacefully (radio edit): break-a-break-a-breaky-break-breaks!
Skylar Grey - Dance Withou You: Then we'll take the bangs and move on to even more pop!
Teen Daze - Wet Hair (Japandroids cover): Ahhh the Vancouver classic done all drippy with synth and love.
The Good Natured - Skeleton: Sure they sound like many other female-fronted rock bands, but oh they do that Metric thing oh so well.
Tycho - Coastal Brake: Ummm yeah so lots of chill going on this update I guess! This time in that lovely Ulrich Schnauss vein.
