SBTRKT – “New Dorp, New York”

London producer SBTRKT released “New Drop, New York” from his next album Wonder When We Land yesterday on BBC. The track borrows vocals from Ezra Koenig, lead singer of Vampire Weekend. The single has a significantly different sound from his self-titled debut album and instrumental EP, Transitions. “New Drop, New York” has more of a pop aura about it that is likely to be better received by the general public. Don’t worry though – that deep dancey beat we expect from SBTRKT still lingers in the background of the song.

Andrew Jackson Jihad – Ghost Mice Split

I was introduced to the folk/punk duo Ghost Mice with their 2007 Andrew Jackson Jihad split album after spending months delving into AJJ’s extensive discography. Ghost Mice is made up of Chris Johnston and Hannah Jones both former members of pop/punk bands before switching to folk for more venue options when touring. Hannah switched from bass guitar to violin and thus the band was born. Johnston and Jones both have small, pretty, innocent voices which are strange to listen to as they talk about child molesting priests, but the juxtaposition of themes leads to a confusing calming yet infuriating mood after listening. Their split also includes a song about D&D called Critical Hit (which I had happened to listen to hours after playing my first bout of Dungeons and Dragons) and a happy song called Cementville about kid gangs and befriending enemies, not to mention their closing song named Please Quit Smoking, Mom.

Grimes – Genesis

In 2010 Grimes hit the music scene by releasing her debut album Geidi Primes. Since then Claire Boucher or better known as Grimes has been hard at work producing her synthy pop/electronic music. Not only did Grimes kill it at Pitchfork this past weekend but she also showed off all of her hard work while winning over the crowd with her personality and voice. Grimes was the second to last performance of the night before Kendrick Lamar hit the stage. Her song Genesis was the last song of her set to win the crowd over. Not only does her music bring people of all varieties together but it also brought the people of Pitchfork together for one last time.
