Crookers & Roisin Murphy
The Irish disco diva hooks with dance producers Crookers (who play Dublin on April 4th) for the dancefloor-friendly Royal T.
Paul Weller remixed
During his mid-’90s renaissance, Portishead remixed Weller’s Wild Wood. Now with a new album on the way, it should be no surprise that producer Leo Zero was asked to remix No Tears To Cry into a bright and breezy modern Northern Soul song. Beautiful.
MGMT – Flash Delirium
From their forthcoming album Congratulations, this new MGMT song features a flute solo, mystic lyrics and delves deeper into the psychedelic recesses of their musical canon. Kids it ain’t.
Gorillaz’ bonus track
Taken from the Japanese version of Plastic Beach, Pirate’s Progress is an extended version of the orchestral intro which goes into Bernard Herrman territory. That Albarn guy sure is talented.
