Deep sht a.k.a Tom Watson is a beacon of British lo-fi pop. Weird you erupts in a flurry of anodyne scuzz, its 5 songs whirling by with rambunctious vigor. It sweeps you off your feet for 13minutes and then ends as abruptly as it began. A masterclass in effervescent noise pop.

What can i really say about Arthur Russell? The man’s musical legacy spans so many genres, his voice was so hauntingly beautiful and his cello playing so innovative. World Of Echo is one of his more avant-garde records, incorporating many previous takes on pop, disco and classical music. It definitely took me some dedicated listening for it to fully click with me but once you get used to its deconstructed nature, this record really comes alive. Russell’s solitary cello stews in reverb, distortion and, as the title suggests, echo to create a staccato fuzz which his voice washes over dreamily. World Of Echo is definitely his most personal and poignant work, showing him in his most vulnerable state.
So it’s now, beyond all reasonable doubt, winter time. Unless you are reading this from the other side of the world, it’s getting mighty chilly outside, the nights are drawing in and you just want to curl up by an open fire and listen to the warming tones of some good psychedelic fuzz, enter Banjo Or Freakout. BOF is the brainchild of London based musician Alessio Natalizia. With just a few guitar loops, effects pedals and a laptop, Alessio creates dreamy psych melodies, over which he ghoulishly croons. Basically if you like Animal Collective’s new EP Fall Be Kind you will enjoy this.
