Playlist 21.06.09 (11:15 pm)

Good evening! We're saving FBi all month! Goto http://www.fbiradio.com/ to donate or sign up as a supporter - or, during the day, call 1300 FBI 945.
Wonderful Canberran due Spartak return this week with a new EP, from which we had one long track at the start and another later on.
Bibio's new album, his first for Warp, is a corker. Combining his pastoral murky folktronica with Prefuse-style glitch-hop and excellent vocals, it should make a lot of people very happy.
Collarbones are Sydney/Adelaide duo Marcus Whale and Travis Cook, mixing crunchy beats, vocals and processed sounds. You should download the EP right now! (see below)
Moderat is Apparat & Modeselektor teaming up for some lovely indietronica and 2step/dubstep-influenced technoish stuff. Obviously the single, Rusty Nails, is a little slice of pop genius, but the Busdriver collab is also awesome. Much more from Busdriver next week methinks, but two tracks from his album this week. Some of the best alt.hop out there :)
Cheap Red is the latest incarnation of Steward & Jen of 555 Recordings of Flagstaff, AZ (late of Leeds, UK), with some friends. Charming trashy indiepunkpop. The album comes with a bonus CD of remixes, and Bracken turns in a characteristic slice of brilliance, with wobblywobbly bass, totally transforming the original.
Milanese's new album is his most grimey yet, with awesome bass action going on, and his usual scrunched up vocals (mostly by Ben Sharpa). Followed by a nice bit of tech-step from years back by µ-Ziq, and an awesome bit of new drum'n'bass from Survival.
Longtime listeners will have heard a lot by the boats on Utility Fog. Their latest features a lot of minimal dubby electronica, but also some great folktronica with vocals by Chris Stewart.
Of Dragging Pianos I know little except that they write great indiepop and there's some connection with The Middle East. Lee Tran Lam has more at the Local Fidelity blog.
sleeps in oysters put out a lovely folktronic mini-album last year, but I missed out on the comp that tonight's track comes from. If anything, even better than their other stuff!
And you can imagine I couldn't possibly resist Lucky Dragons remixing Dirty Projectors. To be honest, it probably didn't turn out as awesome as I'd hoped, but still very nice stuff.
Orla Wren makes a reappearance after last week, and will hopefully be hanging around for a bit longer - there's a lot to digest on that album.
Peter Broderick's film music features himself on piano, cello, violin, guitar and laptop, and is beautiful quiet stuff. His remix of soccer Committee & Machinefabriek is also a beauty.
And finally, a new cover by Daniel Rossen - always going to be magical stuff, and indeed it is. The compilation is comes from (see below - it's a free download right now) looks to be great too. Wahoo!
