Todays Music For Horses songs are very good. Not that they usually aren’t, but I reckon these are up there with the best. One is new and one is old. Let’s get it started with the new song. I was sent this a couple of days ago and I’ve been listening to it a lot. It’s got a Radiohead feel to it, with a delicate vocal over the top of a distorted electronic trip-hop influenced instrumental. It’s sophisticated, grown up and really good. And you can download it for free from his website for a limited time. Just click on the song title below.
The second dose of chilled music today comes thanks to Darkstar. Their debut album came out about 18 months ago, although this song is actually from 2009. I got to know them through a bunch of mixes (one particularly good one for FACT Magazine) and the fractured sound is one I enjoy an awful lot. This song is a fine example of why I like the sound.
