The Invisible release a beautiful new bonus track today lifted off a special re-release of their critically acclaimed sophomore album Rispah. Lead singer Dave Okumu’s trance-like vocals float over the songs dramatic orchestration, resulting in a rather voluminous affair. The reissue (released Feb 25th) will also feature new remixes from Hot Chip, Kwes and Micachu.

London boy King Krule serves up a dark new video for ‘Octopus’, the double A-Side single to his ‘Rock Bottom’ release. Archie’s bellowing voice, controlled by the immense restraint he always displays sounds harrowingly beautiful over this trippy acid-jazz instrumental. Despite it’s grim visuals there seems to be something oddly romantic about this song.

My co-pilot just sent me this, the need to share was immediate.

Feast your ears on London Grammar and their achingly beautiful new single ‘Hey Now’. Their stunning orchestration builds into a delicate dance of softened organ chords, beautifully placed subs and gorgeous electric guitars, climaxing into an epic apex. Amidst the innocence of the lead singers choir-like voice is also a brutally emotive performance powering the entire movement. Most absorbing and most exciting for their future is that they are blending a rich palette of influences – from Folk, to Electronica, to Trip-Hop, it’s all traceable but yet it’s all done in a really inspiring way.

Need more.

Archie Marshall… voice of the future. A heavy weight to put any young artist’s shoulder as they’re developing, but then, all the elements that comprise this piece of music are incredible. So too, is the un radical libre mind-state behind it. With early gems and his EP leading up, a dozen artists and stylistic references could be made of it’s parts, but ‘Octopus’ as King Krule’s latest sum is singular and arresting. How do you define his sound between the growl and the melange? If it takes you a minute to think about that, he’s doing it right.

Listen to the A-Side ‘Rock Bottom’ here as both that and ‘Octopus’ drop on Rinse’s label today.

The world is less than one week away from the release of The xx’s much anticipated sophomore album Coexist and while a full stream of their LP is available to stream here, today sees the release of ‘Reconsider’ an iTunes bonus track that won’t feature on the physical release. Singers Romy & Oliver laze the emotional strands of their intertwined vocals around Jamie xx’s acute perception of space and stillness – another stunning performance from this 3-piece..

Does it live up to the first time you heard xx? Are you satisfied with Jamie’s work behind the boards? Is it the evolved or ritual follow-up you’d hoped for? Does it take you places? Find out below.

Coexist is released September 10th via Young Turk/XL.

“We filmed this whilst on tour in Tokyo. We were so inspired by Tokyo and the view from Romy’s hotel room on the 33rd floor, that we asked our friend Jamie-James Medina to film us recording a version of Angels in there. Love The xx”

Expect this years biggest album Coexist on September 10th via Young Turks.

Possessor of one of the most striking voices these shores have produced in some years, 18 year old King Krule is back with another captivating single titled ‘Rock Bottom’. Introduced by a gentle guitar, the song erupts into a crashing, drum heavy uptempo bound by the all-encompassing, growling voice of Archy Marshall. ‘Rock Bottom’ will be released as a double A-side on September 24th.

The second preview of upcoming Coexist arrives in due course. Jamie opting for a more 2-Step inclined rhythm and cottony drums (*Wiley voice* whatchu’ call it? Post-Dubstep?!) as both Romy and Oliver engage in their famous, softly-spoken interplays. Whilst still not hugely digressive in styling, why would it need to be… the magic formula of foot pedal etherealism and intimacy, as always still very beautiful. As far as indie popping vibes (*Wiley voice* whatchu’ call it? Guitar Music?!), take it from us, they’re still amongst the sexiest and most soulful this country has ever managed to produce. Cannot wait till September 10th. Meanwhile, pair this up with ‘Angels’ right now for maximum gratification.

The British trio make their impact felt (again) on middle America with new single ‘Angels‘. Watch their purple tinted US television performance from last night that keeps things understated whilst the record itself grows ever more heart-shaking. Meanwhile Co-Exist, their sophmore album the earth poohs itself waiting for, is released September 11th and available for pre-order on iTunes or Amazon.
