I'm pretty sure that nothing really matters except the things you choose to love. You can call that a rule, here are your singles of the week:


Aiden Knight - 'All Clear'

I'm a sucker for this. Crisp production, harmonies I can sing without remembering the words, a nice upbeat tempo change - the complete package. Very much into it - the guy is playing in London next week and the album is out in Q1 of 2016 on Full Time Hobby - Expect to hear more from him.


Tindersticks - 'We are Dreamers'

Some artists attempt to do more than others, some achieve great things and others fail, this is how life works. This collaboration is phenomenal. It's the musical equivalent of this time of year, of raindrops running down windows, the steady journey of green leaves to the trodden earth, an awareness of the passing of time and the sense that some things are beyond your control.


Jaws - 'What We Haven't Got Yet'

This is a fun rock song that is gratifying to listen to.


Pell - 'Cafe Du Monde'

Dave Sitek-produced hip-hop. I shouldn't need to explain it. It's what some people would affectionately call a "banger".


DJ Paypal - 'Awakening'

I wouldn't be able to dance to this, but I'd quite like to talk about how it makes me want to dance, my imaginary flailing limbs deserve it.


Dreamcrusher - 'Adore'

If you call yourself Dreamcrusher you better mean it and holy shit this is some transcendent noise. Like the darkest before the dawn part of a free party when you are peaking but everything you have is wrecked, you're up to your knees in mud, your feet are numb and you can't find anyone you know - just before you realise that none of that matters one fucking bit.


Floating Points - 'Nespole'

Pretty sure this new Floating Points song will act like ointment on your melted face. The album Elaenia is out in November.


Matthewdavid's Mindflight - 'Dancing Ganesh'

I'll leave you with seventeen minutes of rapturous drone from Matthewdavid, who has set up Leaving Records to release modern new age music, or new new age music, depending on your point of view and how terrible your sense of humour is.



I think that's quite enough. I promise to give this column all of the care and attention that something that is outdated and overlooked in a couple of days deserves.
