Some random thoughts:
Jamie XX live performance of “Loud Places” on French TV was quite wonderful. Nice song. Sampled “In Colour“, a bit 50/50 so far.
Blanck Mass “Dumb Flesh” (May, 2015)
Love the cover. Given the album a number of listens and just not really feeling it.
Really love “Lung” and really like “Dead Format” though.
Jam City “Dream A Garden” (March, 2015)
Wasn’t a huge fan of this initially – found it very samey – but it has really grown on me. I like the gauzy 80s pop vibe with the dark underbelly. Very very nice.
Tanlines “Highlights” (May, 2015)
As an album it’s pretty underwhelming – but as above, it has grown on me, particularly the first four tracks – I get kind of bored of it after that.
“Slipping Away” is a really lovely song, but lately had “Two Thousand Miles” popping into my head.
