If your eardrums haven’t burst after a bass-filled Splendor bender, there are three fantastic new albums that have just dropped. Check out AlunaGeorge’s Body Music, Moderat’s II or Pond’s Hobo Rocket.
AlunaGeorge Body Music
Apart from featuring on Disclosure’s track “White Noise”, this sexy UK duo have invaded the scene with their soulful twisted R&B. Aluna’s sultry voice layers perfectly over George’s beating synths. Strong, sweet and dirty, get all over it.
The synergy created by electronic superstars Modeselektor and Apparat is absolutely incredible. Those familiar with their previous work will be pleased with the direction the new album has taken, with their deep flowing beats creating such a chilled headspace that it makes it impossible not to listen to the album in its entirety, hit after hit, pulse after pulse.
Pond Hobo Rocket.
This is the psych rock follow up to debut Wives, Beards, Denim. Their love of obscure album names and Tame Impala members aside, this epic album traverses genres and will shred your face off.
