Decembers mix of the month is to flow those winter cobwebs away with a selection of tunes from Andrea Montanalto. He's a selector from Scilly making his home in London, lots of good sounds and world music.
Some easy and good listening from the young singer-songwriter from Toronto, Canada. Highlighting Bon Iver and Mac Demarco as inspirations, this lo-fi acoustic sound is smooth and easy on the lugs anyway.
This week we've been listening to some squishy lo-fi hip-hop coming out of Melbourne. Kaiit sound is the exact psychedelic, chilled sound that we like on a Thursday morning. first brought to our attention by a friend from Melbourne, then again recently by Bradley Zero.
Its fucking great to hear some Melbourne boys getting a release on the Peckham based label Rhythm Section. There were some weird and wonderful sounds coming out of the city when we visited a few years back.
Frieze Art Fair came around last week in London and we went up to take a look at what was being considered as art this year, to look at all the people Instagramming themselves into oblivion and join in everyone else chin-stroking their way around a tent in Regents Park.
This week we're featuring some shots from the Instagram account of Hal Hines, He's a model, photographer from Scotland that moves around the world. His light in urban/domestic space is what attracted us to his work. Sometimes eery, sometimes nostalgic.
