Each week the Music Feeds team hunt down their favourite new tunes, bundle them up in some (often highly legible) words and bring them to you. It’s Music Feeds Faves.
Jack Stirling – Lovers
Following the sparkling disco magic that was his last single Honey, Aussie muso Jack Stirling has sliced up another fresh cut from his debut EP Pink Paint (out now!). Lovers is a decidedly downtempo turn on the record, seductive (obviously, given the title) in its r’n’b groove and woozy production, all whilst remaining danceable as ever thanks to Stirling’s crisp vocals.
Put this one on high rotation, but you might want to limit your plays at work. You’ll probably find yourself spelling out “c-o-c-a-i-n-e” intermittently throughout the day. / Nastassia Baroni, Editor
LDRU – Keeping Score (Ft. Paige IV)
Sydney producer LDRU’s latest single Keeping Score is getting an absolute belting on the local radio at the moment, and I for one welcome our new indie-electro overlord.
Dripping in screeching, cemetery strings and beefed up with an infectious beat all held together by Paige’s MØ-esque sublimely powerful vocals Keeping Score is en route for Song of Summer status.
A new video for the track dropped this week and sees Paige fall down the proverbial rabbit hole into a perfectly paired tropical cartoon world. / Mitch Feltscheer, Creative Content Director
Twelve Foot Ninja – One Hand Killing
Thundercat – Paris
In the last week, Paris has been shocked by more needless violence from religious extremists. It seems, to me at least, like the music community is feeling the almost surreal nature of this whole ordeal more than it ever has before, after terrorists targeted an Eagles Of Death Metal show in the French capital.
Thundercat and producer Mono/Poly have shared a short instrumental piece “in tribute to those who lost their lives” in the attacks. It’s a cool one-and-a-half minutes of noodling which comes embedded with a quiet sadness, but also the feeling that one day everything is going to be okay. / Tom Williams, Staff Writer
