Jon Hopkins - Form By Firelight (with Raphaelle Standell)

Posted by 32 sites • Also on: SpotifyApple Music
On his forthcoming EP, esteemed English producer Jon Hopkins reimagines previous pieces from Immunity. Here he invites new vocals from Raphaelle Standell-Preston (Braids/Blue Hawaii) for an extra-iridescent version of "Forms by Firelight".

Yumi Zouma - Alena +3 remixes

The New Zealand trio took music blogs by storm earlier this year with their debut EP and its dream-disco vibes. Today, they release a stellar new single that, for Gorilla vs Bear, "feels like their shining/defining pop moment."

Communions - So Long Sun

With "clean, melodic guitar lines," the new track from this young Copenhagen-based quartet nicely "complements autumn’s golden glow," says The Line of Best Fit.

Hundred Waters - Never Blame

This recent demo from staff favorite Hundred Waters quietly appeared Monday on their SoundCloud page. Said band member Nicole via Twitter, "instead of stay on my computer forever, I think it's better you have it."

William Onyeabor - Body & Soul Peaking Lights Remix +1 more

The 70s/80s work of Nigerian electronic/funk legend Onyeabor gets the box set treatment this fall via David Byrne's label. To honor this, dusty vinyl lovers Peaking Lights give "Body & Soul" a hypnotic tweak.

This week's album premiere is Hungry Ghosts by Ok Go.

As for interesting reads, try this one about the quantification of aesthetics.

Thanks for listening!
