With an abundance of talented producers sporting the words panda and/or bear these days its hard to keep up with the who’s who and what’s what. The obvious producers aside, there’s a new standout (well, new to me anyway).

Pandatone’s ’09 album ‘Lemons & Limes’ has been getting some serious play of late, its just such a solid album! His sound is somewhere between Gold Panda and Bibio, it’s melodic, ambient glitch. According to Pandatone’s website the follow up is due out very very soon…..

Up until a few weeks ago Working For a Nuclear Free City didn’t mean a thing to me. Then their latest album ‘Jojo Burger Tempest’ walked into my life and its been by my side ever since…

Released on Melodic, the album’s an idiosyncratic journey through genres, bursting with ideas. These guys somehow manage to cram more into one track than some artists do a whole album!

‘Jojo Burger Tempest’ is an electronic post rock album at heart but don’t be fooled there’s something in it for everyone. Jumping from Rock to dream pop then over the tracks to glitchy beats, all over the course of 3 minutes, there’s never a dull moment.

Have a listen for yourself, hopefully you’ll be as surprised by this little gem as I was…

The London/Berlin duo Hype Williams have just dropped a new 7″ ‘Do Roids and Kill E’rything’ in the lead up to their forth coming album on Hippos in Tanks (the same awesome label that’s released Games, Oneohtrix Point Never, White Cars and Laurel Halo) Hype Williams have 3 quality releases under their belts this year, so the album’s shaping up to be a winner!

If your not familiar with Hype Williams, they make really cool, really lo-fi, abstract electronica. Here are my favs so far…

I don’t know much about Fox Hands, well he does makes great music….but according to his website he also draws comics strips, writes children’s books AND is one half of a record/comic book combo for children called Robbert Bobbert and the Bubble Machine (hmm…..interesting you say).

Anywho his music under the moniker Fox Hands is great experimental lo-fi pop. It sounds like colourful waves crashing on the shore, gradually making their way up the beach towards unassuming beach go-ers.

You can grab his EP ‘Peoplenoswan’ from bandcamp here for free, or you can support the artist and flick him a few dow-llars… your call

Described by Flying Lotus as “timeless, incredible filth”, Gonjasufi‘s back with a remix album to go hand in hand with his incredibly unique debut ‘A Sufi and a Killer’. His voice is so bizarre and awesome, it transcends anything I’ve heard before…

I’m really excited about this release, his debut is up their with the best of the year. With remixes from Bibio, Oneohtrix Point Never, Bears In Heaven, Mark Pritchard and Broadcast this was a no brainer always bound for the stars. A diverse album of psychedelic and down right weird remixes to put a smile on any fans dial…..p
