Between The Cracks: 5 New Releases You Need To Hear

Between The Cracks: 5 New Releases You Need To Hear

With so much good music coming through thick and fast, it’s easy for new music to drop online and go unnoticed. To help prevent this, we’ve picked five albums you need to hear. Stream music from NOON, Elia Perrone, Moonboots, Thandi Ntuli and Dinosaur. If you like what you hear, support the artists.

 

NOON – ALGORYTM

London label Lanquidity Records continue to push out quality music with this new EP from Polish artist NOON. His new project called ALGORYTM is a complex diary, charting the evolution of short pieces of music first composed in 2010. The melodies and ideas on which the compositions are based are like traces which, as NOON (Mikolaj Bugajak) says, were haunting him for years. Packed with intricate details and an ever-changing soundscape it is a wonderful trip through four mindblowing tracks. Highest possible recommendation!

Moments In Time – Compiled By Moonboots

Music For Dreams asked a longtime friend of the label, Moonboots, to pick out a selection of little-known gems from his vast collection of chilled music that powerfully encapsulate moods of calm and moments of contemplation, that equally echo the cozy solace of chilled winter days and reflect the blissful, searing heat of the summer sun. Headphones on lights out and drift away. Very nice!

Elia Perrone – Amarena

Elia Perrone returns to his Unclear imprint with his second full-length album, entitled ‘Amarena’ the album follows on from 2016’s ‘Stella’ EP alongside the Venetian producer Gigi Masin. The new album sees Perrone deliver an engaging slice of ethereal ambience via expansive atmospherics, hypnotic string lines, warm pads and dreamy landscapes. My absolute favourites are ‘Emotions’, ‘Fight For Love, ‘Mental Distortion’, ‘Have Fun For Me Too’ and the title track. Top quality stuff!

Thandi Ntuli – Exiled

Thandi Ntuli returns with her second album, ‘Exiled’. Perfection from start to finish, which is nothing less than what to expect from Ntuli. Just let the music wash over you with grace and style. Soothing and magical jazz.

Dinosaur – Wonder Trail

Dinosaur’s second album is a delightful array of rock grooves; electronic minimalism with subtle pop and folk nuances that are all meticulously crafted by Laura Judd and her band. What’s not to like?
