Six songs for invisible gardens, Green House
Green-House is the project of Los Angeles based artist Olive Ardizoni.
Approaching the project with an intentional naivety, they craft songs that find freedom through simplicity. As a non-binary artist, they hope to create a space with fewer barriers as both a performer and a listener.
Tropical drums of Deutschland, Jan Schulte
Schulte has pulled together a collection of ‘tropical drum’ music made in and around Germany and says the compilation stems from a “general fascination for music that describes places where artists have never been.” Much of the music on ‘Tropical drums of Deutschland’ came out on small imprints in the late ’80s.
Elwan is the seventh album by the Tuareg band Tinariwen, released in 2017. The title means “elephants” in Tamashek and the term is used as a metaphor for militias and corporations that have trampled the fragile natural and human ecosystems of the desert.
Black focus, Yussef Kamaal
This album weaves and winds between frantic breakdowns, slow melodramatic grooves, lush pads, the rush of strings and skits somewhat reminiscent of old hip hop records. The drums at times pay homage to jungle and breakbeat culture, whilst the jazzy layers are symbolic of the role which funk and soul has played in both artists’ musical sphere.
Sixteen oceans, Four Tet
A mix of club-ready barnstormers and downbeat daydreams, held together by field-recorded miniatures and ambient etudes. Four Tet shares a palette of muffled rimshots and flashing hi-hats with his occasional collaborator Burial, and his more forceful beats remain charged with the snap and wing of 2-step.
