JR JR – Invocations/Conversations 🦁

“Invocations/Conversations is a double album. Invocations is the original set of tracks that Warner Bros. tacitly rejected, while Conversations is essentially the next album, written in the long interim while JR JR were getting away from one record company and starting up a label of their own.’’ – Pop Matters

Sinkane – Dépaysé 🐲

“Named after the French word for “to be removed from one’s habitual surroundings”, the album draws on the experiences of the band’s London-born, Sudanese frontman Ahmed Gallab, who now finds himself living as an immigrant in Trump’s America. It’s their most poppy and psychedelic-leaning work to date, bursting with colour and fuelled by a multicultural band featuring Elenna Canlas on keys and backing vocals, and Ish Montgomery on bass.” – The Independent Culture

Kishi Bashi – Omoiyari 🐧

“Diverging from the electronic tapestries of 2016’s Sonderlust and the youthful exuberance of his breakout record, 151A, Omoiyari feels more sober, more mature. Relying almost entirely on acoustic instruments — most notably lush string arrangements — Kishi Bashi’s latest juxtaposes bouncy indie-pop tracks (“A Song for You”) with mournful meditations (the instrumental “A Meal for Leaves”).” – Exclaim!

Kölsch – fabric Presents (DJ Mix) 🕶

“A mainstay on seminal German imprint Kompakt, Kölsch is responsible for developing an immersive, leftfield aesthetic now synonymous with the label. Opting for rich, cinematic palettes over monochromatism, his sound offers an alternative vision of techno, championing vivid imagery that appeals to the vast spectrum of human emotion.” – fabric

Peggy Gou – DJ-Kicks EP 🐯

“The DJ-Kicks EP is a taster of her forthcoming mix that lands next month, and features “Pert” by Hiver, and “Casette Jam 1993” by I:Cube. As well as two new singles from other artists, Peggy Gou has released her own “Hungboo” track with the EP.” – The Line of Best Fit
