HIGH FIVE: OCTOBER

The five nights you need to hit in the UK this October!
Armchair Psychiatrist - DJ Stingray - [Naked Lunch]

It’s been a while since either this label or Stingray have released material, so ‘Psychiatrist’ is a welcome return. In true Sherard Ingram form, the title track is a blistering, high-paced electro track, scattergun percussive volleys fired over hyperactive metal 808s as Stingray drops noisy, discordant riffs into the ether. ‘Strontium Dog 2’ is less pacey but just as intense, with waves of tough claps supporting insistent techno-bass pulses. It sounds like he never went away.

 

 

Remember When/Till We Meet Again - Majera - Touchstone

After 2012’s fine ‘Nothing Is Forever’ and last year’s ‘Te Echos De Menos’, wistful title enthusiast Majera fields his 2014 offering. ‘Remember When’ should bring nods of appreciation for good structure, fine sounds and tight production. Midway through ‘Till We Meet Again’ though emerges a riff so chest swelling, so goddamn lump-in-the-throat big ‘n’ gorgeous, that ‘Remember’ may become just a memory.

Problems - Homeboy Sandman - Stones Throw Records

"I'm surrounded by hipsters / What does that say about me? / Hipsters love independent movies / Shit, I love independent movies / Actually, I just like independent movies / So I think I'm cool there" — amusing, broken-up and horizontal slice of first-world anxiety from HS and Stones Throw. New album 'Hallways' due soon. Don't sleep. 

Concord - Sully - Hsuan

Sully follows up his Keysound EP, 'Blue', with another duo of cuts aimed squarely at junglists. I read somewhere about his ‘tangle of drums’ and since then I’ve not been able to get the phrase out of my mind, it’s so perfectly apt.
