A brief inquiry to online relationships

I can’t get enough of the latest campaign for The 1975s new album „A brief inquiry to online relationships“. I already raved about the brilliant single „Love it if we made it“ here. The Vinyl cover looks stunning and the whole poster campaign is just brilliant, monochrome black and white with lots of Helvetica porn. See it all on their Facebook page or on Instagram.

Ivan Fabra (Somethin’ Sanctified Remix)

Everything where Simon Mills from Bent is involved is worth mentioning.
You should also check out his latest album Harmonic Jigsaws Vol. 1 or his older work as Napoleon
and definitely Programmed to love by Bent, one of my alltime favorite albums.

Sharp Objects

After Big Little Lies the next winner series for director Jean-Marc Vallé.
Gripping, dark, visually stunning and with an amazing cast, lead by Amy Adams. So far one of this year’s best shows.

DejaVilla

Steve Monite

Moon Boots (Nick Monaco Remix)

Another great remix. And again Moon Boots is involved. This time as an artist with Nick Monaco on remix duties.
To be honest, with it’s marching kick, those cheap snares and the kiddie melody it’s sounds kinda stupid. But it’s so much fun, big stomper.

Channel Tres

Channel Tres is another great late discovery. Hot deep shit.

Whethan feat. Honne

I’m still a bit underwhelmed by Honne’s latest album, but this one with Whethan is hot.

Silk City feat. Dua Lipa

Diplo & Mark Ronson’s latest Project drops another Pop monster, this time with the very present Dua Lipa on Vocals.

Khruangbin

Rhye (Moon Boots Remix)

Good remixes are really hard to find these days. And this one is even excellent, with Moon Boots delivering a perfect house rework of Rhye’s smooth tune.

I usually don’t dig around much at YouTube, but this must be my favorite one in a while.

Charlotte Day Wilson

Great tune, love those beats.

Wolf Alice

This is kinda epic and heartbreaking.
„What if it’s not meant for me? love“

The 1975

I haven’t really been into The 1975 so far, but then I stumbled on this.
Although their other output is great (love both albums and will definitely pick up their upcoming one),
most of their music is a Funk / 80s / Pop mash up made for the charts and big concert halls (and they are probably a teeny band).

But this one is an outstanding masterpiece, simply my favorite track in a long time.
I am listening to it since it’s release and still not getting tired of it.
These lyrics are killing me. Every line is a gut punch.
The vocal performance by Matthew Healy is amazing and deeply emotional.
This is a modern version of Billy Joel’s „We didn’t start the fire“ and I can’t understand why this didn’t get more attention.

And since Im a bit disspointed that they returned to their usual pop stuff afterwards I still like them, hopefully I can check them out on their next tour.
See for yourself in this great live show from London’s O2 arena from 2016

Childish Gambino

You sure know this one, one of the most important music works in the past months (or maybe years?).
What a stunning creative force Childish Gambino has become.

The New Yorker / Tom Gauld

London artist Tom Gauld (highly recommended) created this Cover for The New Yorker. There’s also a musical version here.

Oliver Tree

So great, „Alien Boy“ is a favourite right now (starts a 1:30)
