5 Quick Hits from Ultrasound Radio

Look, I don’t have a lot of time here, so I’m just gonna drop a few hints about some beats and beeps I’ve been digging lately—the kind of stuff you can hear with me onUltrasound Radio

  1. St. Vincent, “Digital Witness”—The best Tori Amos song in years (ROFLCOPTER). Sam from Jet Set Radio needs to stop stealing my thunder with this track.
  2. Todd Terje, “Delorean Dynamite”—Did you fall all over Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories last year? Well, pick yourself up and bump your head on It’s Album Time.
  3. Eno + Hyde, “Daddy’s Car”—I haven’t listened to all of Someday World yet, but if the rest of it is as good as this second leak, I think these two newcomers might have a future.
  4. Nikka Costa, “Like a Feather”—Throwback alert! First heard the riff in As Heard on Radio Soulwax Vol. 2 but didn’t know the first place to find it. Now obsessed, thanks to Wil Schade.
  5. The Grid, “Crystal Clear (Clear, Like An Unmuddied Lake)”—Throwback alert! That’s The Orb going HAM on some fellow musicians from the heyday of ambient dub/start of big beat.
