Foxes in Fiction - Antibody

Posted by 2 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
Leading our 250th Stack with an artist featured in our first, Foxes in Fiction's return LP, Trillium Killer, arrives later this month on their own Orchid Tapes. The tender "Antibody" unfolds "like a panic in slow motion," says Stereogum.

Tony Njoku - Rapture

Posted by 3 sites • On SoundCloud • Also on: Spotify
Out today, the visceral new concept album from British-Nigerian experimental musician Tony Njoku is modeled after the heightened sense of disorientation experienced on the glass walkway of Olafur Eliasson's art piece "Your rainbow panorama."

Henry Wu - Wivout U

Posted by 6 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
Kamaal Williams (Stack №188) has been tapped to compile the next entry in the DJ-Kicks mix series. Presented as an homage to the heroes of London's dance underground, the set also features this exclusive track under his house-minded alias Henry Wu.

Rosie Tucker - Ambrosia

Posted by 9 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
The latest from LA-based songwriter Rosie Tucker jumps between bouts of introspection and intensity. "It all builds to a final cry that feels like a scream in an empty house; a momentary release before returning to the demands of the day," says The Grey Estates.

Ronin Arkestra - Cosmic Collisions

Posted by 8 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
Composer Mark de Clive-Lowe started 2019 with an eponymous two-part release, and has since shared two more albums with his Tokyo-based collective Ronin Arkestra. Per Bandcamp Daily, they combine "spiritual jazz with Afrobeat grooves and the crashing beats and synth lines of London's underground club scene."
Kamaal Williams serves up a mix for the Dekmantel Podcast spanning an array of influences, "from high speed jazz funk to languid, worldly jazz via transcendental guitars and summery soul."

In Vulture, Dan Reilly asks TV and film music supervisors how they got (or didn't get) that song into your favorite scene:

"The harder part of the job is when you get a great song and then the director decides he doesn’t want it after you did all this work. I had that happen with David Bowie, with The Rugrats Movie."

Thanks for listening!
