Manchester, UK-based producer salute (Stack №226
) shares a new track today on his Bandcamp
, featuring his signature mix of hyperactive drum snaps, handclaps, and vocal cuts sequenced above airy textures.
Slumberland-signed New York City band Peel Dream Magazine have a new LP
coming out in April. Likening them to My Bloody Valentine and Stereolab, Stereogum
says they've perfected "a cosmopolitan, playfully experimental form of dream-pop powered by motorik rhythms, bloopy synthesizers, and fuzzed-out guitars."
The new album
from Detroit rapper Quelle Chris and producer/instrumentalist Chris Keys arrives in April, featuring Earl Sweatshirt, Tune-Yards and many others. Chris considers it "a soundtrack for light in the often bleak timeline that is the now."
Composer snd saxophonist Alabaster DePlume connects with Chicago-based label International Anthem for a compilation
of instrumentals. "Strange, exquisite folk-jazz that feels like it could be spirited away by the merest breeze," says The Quietus
Detroit's Julion De’Angelo and Cologne's Viola Klein (with history in Senegal) exchange sounds on a new 12-inch
. "We hear styles from all three cities—Mike Ink-style rave, irrepressible Mbalax and soulful Detroit piano house—working together for the advancement of rhythm and sound," says Resident Advisor
The aforementioned Alabaster DePlume is a resident at London’s influential music hub Total Refreshment Centre. Last year, along with Boiler Room and the Barbican, they hosted Dreaming The City, a jazz show designed as "a live mixtape exploring three decades of musical excellence that took place inside an Edwardian warehouse in Hackney."
For NPR, Maria Sherman looks back on NSYNC's No Strings Attached 20 years later:
"Long before features were a necessity for pop acts in a competitive music market, NSYNC had begun to mirror hip-hop by seeking out cross-genre collaborations."
Thanks for listening!
