Morgan Delt – Some Sunsick Day – new video

Posted in Music with tags , , , , , , , on October 15, 2016 by dc

I’m probably paraphrasing but I vaguely remember reading a review of the Beastie BoysPaul’s Boutique many years ago that described the album as sounding like it had been recorded at the bottom of a toaster (I’m presuming ‘in a good way’, as I absolutely love it). Sub Pop psychonaught, Morgan Delt‘s latest album, Phase Zero, sounds like it was recorded in the basement of a wonky aquarium. It’s packed with hypnotic, bubbling melodies, floaty vocals that drop in and out of the mix and psychedelic freckles of hazy hookiness. It’s one of my favourite LP’s of 2016.

Check out the video for the latest single, Some Sunsick Day below:

Atom Bomb is taken from Gruff Rhys‘s new soundtrack for Set Fire To The Stars, a film directed by Andy Goddard, charting the poet Dylan Thomas’ first week in the USA in 1950 and his uneven friendship with fellow poet (and agent of sorts), John Malcolm Brinnin.

If the idea of ‘your favourite DJ’s favourite DJ‘ intrigues you and you value the opinions of turntablism icons like Mixmaster Mike, DJ Qbert and Hudson Mohawke, you really ought to check out DJ Woody‘s debut solo album, The Point Of Contact.

Check out this tasty little album sampler for starters:

The Point Of Contact‘ is described as, ” hand crafted electronic music born from a collection of disparate dusty vinyl samples, reinterpreted by a cast of Manchester’s finest musicians“. With fingers deep in the pies of hip-hop, jazz-rock, brit-rap and electro DJ Woody jokingly refers to his style as ‘Prog-Hop’ and the album features, Matthew Halsall, Christian Madden (The Earlies) and members of 808 State and GoGo Penguin. It’s a reet treat…

Here’s a link to the album, have a listen and grab a copy for a very reasonable £7.
