Playlist 22.06.14 (9:04 pm)

Hey yo... last show for a bit! I'm off traipsing overseas for the next 7 Sundays! But so many goodies for y'all tonight...

Listen again in the usual ways... but podcast will be off while I'm away. Make sure you tune in and listen to Xiaoran Shi and Heli Newton while I'm away, and follow along at the FBi page.

The Houndstooth label is doing some of the most interesting stuff at the moment, and Akkord arrive with an awesome EP here, first track building its broken techno beat from car engines a la Art Of Noise, while the second has a brilliant slowed-down jungle groove.
On the other hand, Sully's new EP on Blackdown's Keysound label is pure '94 jungle through-and-through (except for a broken-down beatless remix by grime star Logos). It's totes awes.
And that introduction takes us into the sounds of Ross Tones aka Throwing Snow, who bears a bit of influence from jungle himself, as well as all other Bass musics, and more than a little folktronica also in there. His new album impressively only seems to get better as it goes on, with some crazy chopped-up beats in the latter part. We hopped back to 2011 and some dancefloor-aimed 12"s, and also heard from his pop/trip-hop duo Snow Ghosts.

And the second half of the show was mostly filled with a special on the wonderful ambient/post-classical/drone duo Deaf Center and its members, cellist/guitars/sound artist Erik K Skodvin aka Svarte Greiner aka Miasmah label boss, and pianist Otto A Totland. Skodvin is a huge inspiration, crafting acoustic doom (and not always acoustic!) from percussive cello sounds, wooden creaks, spectral vocals, and sometimes walls of guitar noise as well. And Totland's latest album features incredibly sensitive muted piano playing a la Nils Frahm, on whom we can only imagine he's a bit of an influence. Anyway, incredible stuff at the heart of what Utility Fog's about.

And finally a couple of tracks from the forthcoming album from folktronic/indietronic artist Setec. Electronically-arranged acoustic samples, hints of hip-hop, indiefolk vocals... and a bit of shoegaze in there too. Look out for it soon!
