Song of the Day: Goat – Under No Nation

The question we asked on a regularly is “when is there gonna to be another Goat album?”. Well that wait is finally over! The band have just announced a brand new 10 track album called ‘Oh Death’ which is being released on 21 October. The first single to be released from the album is the fuzz-funk driven track ‘Under No Nation’ – this is what the band say about the track: “This year Goat were invited to the Gods annual feast at the ‘Round Table of Funk’. After a very wet evening, and after Goat was pretty funked up, we were handed the manuscript to ‘Under No Nation’, and ordered to play this divine ‘funk’ to the humans – as the gods felt the human spirit is in deep need to get grooving properly again!”. Enjoy the tune!

Song of the Day: Sudan Archives – Selfish Soul

Singer, composer, violinist and producer, Sudan Archives is among the most interesting realities of the current music scene. Its unique and distinctive sound blends elements of R&B on the violin, African sounds with elements of experimental electronics and funk. Two years after ‘Athena’, the debut album, Sudan Archives is ready to return with ‘Natural Brown Prom Queen’, the new album arriving on September 9th again on the Stones Throw Records (Self) label, a work that faces themes of race, femininity and fiercely loyal and loving relationships, at the center of Sudan’s life with her family, friends, partner, both in her adoptive hometown of Los Angeles and in Cincinnati, where she grew up.

In over 18 tracks, Sudan Archives plays Britt, the girl next door from Cincinnati who drives around town with her hood down and shows up at the prom in a furry pink bikini and thong hanging from her denim skirt. From a first listen, one immediately perceives how ‘Natural Brown Prom Queen’ is her most ambitious record to date, between the disc and the R&B influences of ‘Home Maker’ (nominated by Pitchfork as ‘Best New Track’) to the rhythms from ‘Selfish Soul’ (‘Song You Need’ for The Fader), to the powerful hip-hop of ‘OMG Britt’ to the wild ‘NBPQ (Topless)’ and the ballad of ‘Homesick (Gorgeous & Arrogant)’. Enjoy the tune!

Song of the Day: Jamie Xx – Kill Dem

Jamie Xx returns after Let’s Do It Again with the new single Kill Dem, which is today presented as “Hottest Record In The World” by Clara Amfo on BBC Radio 1. The piece was created with Notting Hill Carnival in mind. and it’s inspired by the party energy and soundsystems Jamie has heard there since he was a teenager. In August Jamie had the honor of attending Carnival for the first time as a DJ, joining Shy FX’s iconic Digital Soundboy stage and having the chance to play Kill Dem in the venue that inspired him. Meanwhile, Jamie Xx has received widespread acclaim for his production work on his bandmate Oliver Sim’s debut solo album Hideous Bastard, which was released September 9 on Young. Enjoy the tune!

Song of the Day: Algiers – Bite Back

‘Bite Back’ is the first new music from Algiers – the four-piece of Franklin James Fisher, Ryan Mahan, Lee Tesche and Matt Tong – since their critically acclaimed third album There Is No Year in 2020. The band will make their UK and European live return in early 2023, with a run of headline dates kicking off February 9th in Dublin and culminating March 8th at The Dome.

Multi-instrumentalist/producer Ryan Mahan said: “Shit’s been so real the past few years, we really needed to grow our community of collaborators and make solid the bonds we’ve always felt, particularly with rap heads. And to have the two best rappers around, billy woods AND Backxwash, on the same Algiers-produced track? Pinch me, for real.”

Singer Franklin James Fisher said: “Ryan showed up one day with this beautifully epic instrumental and said, “I’ve got this song and I want to call it ‘Bite Back’. It immediately reminded me why I joined this band and the rest of the song seemed to write itself. It’s a classic example of our Lenin-McCartney dynamic.” Enjoy the tune!

Song of the Day: Golden Features – Vigil

Acclaimed Australian electronic producer Golden Features (AKA Tom Stell) returns with his second single of the year ‘Vigil’, out now via Foreign Family Collective / Warner Music Australia. 

A dark and meddlesome addition to Golden Features’ catalog, ‘Vigil’ is riddled with fluttering percussive accents, ominous vocals, and thumping basslines. Weaving his tale of sleep deprivation throughout, Golden Features continues to amaze with his unique ability to turn his personal torment into a mesmerizing and relatable earworm. 

Regarding the track, Golden Features said, “‘Vigil’ is about the point of diminishing returns. The sound of birds begging you to go to bed, desperately trying to sleep when your brain won’t allow it. It’s for anybody who’s managed to escape the kick-on only to be left alone in a silent room with nothing but head-noise.” Enjoy it!

Song of the Day: Biig Piig – Kerosene

‘Fun’ has been Biig Piig’s first new material of 2022, and the mark of a new chapter in her life between Los Angeles and London. After the pandemic shut down Live, the nomadic singer and songwriter burst back onto the stage with a massive Glass Animals tour, dates with Jungle, and her first US tour with Emotional Oranges. Biig Piig has also continued to collaborate with trailblazing college-mates NiNE8 Collective, with ‘FUN’ following her immersive and imaginative lockdown EP – ‘The Sky Is Bleeding’ – plus collaborations alongside Metronomy (‘405’) and Emotional Oranges (‘Body & Soul’).

Biig Piig is one of modern pop’s genuine one-offs, and a young woman who has come of age across a period of experimentation and self-evaluation. From breakout track ‘Vice City’ – which dropped when she was just a teenager – to a trilogy of DIY EPs, Biig Piig has moved between genres and stories with songs that speak effortlessly of youth culture. Along the way, Biig Piig has earned a vast global audience for her instantly-identifiable sound. Here’s the new song “Kerosene”, enjoy!

Song of the Day: Sorry – Key to the City

London once again features as a prominent character on Sorry’s second studio album, Anywhere But Here. ’If our first version of London in 925 was innocent and fresh-faced, then this is rougher around the edges. It’s a much more haggard place,’ Louis says. Earwigged conversations, text messages, snatched speech recorded underground; the city’s discarded words fed into the lyrics which map the experience of urban life on a young and frustrated generation. Produced alongside Portishead’s Adrian Utley in Bristol, the result is an angular, acerbic, bittersweet triumph. Enjoy Key to the City!
