It’s been less than a week since our last new music round up, but this week we have NINE new tracks to share. So without further ado… We got our first taste of Fröst last November when they shared their debut track Crackling on the Wire. Three months later they’ve shared another – this one is called Keratin:
Tucked in at the end of this week’s gigs picks was an artist who we hadn’t written about before on the blog. Champione are playing a late gig at Sticky Mike’s to support the launch of their new EP which came out yesterday.
The Home EP features an incredibly generous eight tracks of Electro House. Opener MshMshMsh has a fizzy, effervescent introduction, before bubbling into a French House banger. The next couple of tracks, Unicorns and Bear vs Bear, follow suit with a ravey electro house that would sit nicely alongside MSTRKRFTS finest. The View brings female vocals into the equation, sounding a bit like Katy B produced by Justice. Things go a bit dubstep on title track Home, which features vocals by Danny McGurn, and The End uses elements from each of the preceding five tracks to make something new. The EP also has two remixes of The View by Burenze and Dirty Purity.
Home is available through iTunes and Champione’s Bandcamp page, and the launch night is at Sticky Mike’s from 11pm-3am on Saturday night.
Time to collect together a few bits and pieces that have dropped into our inbox recently. First up is a remix of Cate Ferris’ Doll on a Music Box by Talking Books:
Next up, the new video from The Levellers, who are making a video for every single track on their new album, which we’ll round up when they’re all done. Until then, here’s Mutiny:
The New Union have put up a video for the b-side to their single Without You. This is Home:
Finally, London Commands You (don’t be fooled by the name – they’re local!), have a new single out called Truth. And for the life of me, I can’t find a way to embed the video into the post. So you can click through and watch it here, or you can buy it via amazon here.
