This is a version in Ifan Dafydd’s unique style, with Thallo’s incredible voice enunciating each word with tenderness and passion.
Sonny Winnebago - Lemonade
“I was walking to my job as a barista one sunny day in North London, and saw some little go-getters selling lemonade outside their house. I thought that was really cool and reminded me of when I used to make lemonade from a lemon tree we had in the back garden. Anyway, I had a charity shop acoustic that I kept upstairs at work & I wrote the song on my break that day. Some songs take weeks, months and even years to write, but Lemonade only took a few hours. I think that's how you know it's a good tune - just totally uninhibited, like the song was already in me somewhere, or in the air that day!“

Along with other South London-based artists, the band’s anti-folk sound helped shape the South London scene, without which bands such as Fat White Family, Goat Girl, Peeping Drexels and countless others would not have the same platform to perform that they now have today.

Schacke - Kisloty People
The St. Petersburg club Клуб ("Club") closed this spring, though the first release on its new label should help it live on. The Danish artist Martin Schacke's Клуб Навсегда (Kisloty Forever) EP was made during a two-week residency at the Kisloty complex. Sampling Russian pop songs, the 12-inch is a loving tribute to a club that meant a lot to many, and a brilliant melding of Copenhagen fast techno and pop. It captures dance music's potential to be ridiculous but meaningful.
Y La Bamba - Mariposa De Coalcomán
Y La Bamba has been many things, but at the heart of it is singer-songwriter Luz Elena Mendoza’s inquisitive sense of self. They have been living in Mexico for the last year in between tours and wrote a body work that has a lot to do with ancestral trauma.

Soundwalk Collective - Peradam
"Peradam takes as its entry point René Daumal’s early 1930s novel Mount Analogue: a Novel of Symbolically Authentic Non-Euclidean Adventures in Mountain Climbing, in which the French writer, critic and poet mapped a metaphysical journey to “the ultimate symbolic mountain” in search of meaning. In it, Daumal introduced the idea of the “peradam”, a rare, crystalline stone – harbouring profound truths – that is only visible to seekers on a true spiritual path.
Peradam arrives as “the final stone”, says Soundwalk Collective’s Stephan Crasneanscki, in The Perfect Vision, a triptych of albums that evoke and explore the sainted spaces of thought and creativity opened by three French writers. After albums devoted to Antonin Artaud (The Peyote Dance) and Arthur Rimbaud (Mummer Love), Peradam expands on “the living space”, says Smith, that Daumal left for future seekers to enter and create out of."

dumama + kechou, nobuhle ashanti, Odwa Bongo - for madala
buffering juju, the title of dumama + kechou’s debut album, relates to the process of “excavating spiritually charged content from within”.
the duo’s textural sound, driven by cyclical song structures and chant making, not only captures the angst of the modern world but mines this state of affairs for regenerative potential. their approach to music is a coalescence of their respective individual journeys into the self and society, making their sound – described as nomadic future folk music - the sonic result of an organic meditative process.
dumama + kechou met in cape town in 2017. it was a time of intense socio-political upheaval in South Africa, coming off the back of student-led protests for free education and the wider societal striations those protests exposed. this period coincided with individual spiritual breakthroughs for the duo, signified by fruitful study and mentorship projects.
Planningtorock - From Tallinn with Love (Chanel Show Version)
"A collaboration between Planningtorock and Chanel sound director Michel Gaubert, the songs found on PlanningtoChanel soundtracked the legendary Parisian fashion house’s Autumn-Winter 2020 show earlier this year. “I always felt that Jam incorporates operatic and cinematic elements to their unique sound,” Gaubert explains. “The Chanel show was inspired by French cinema from the 70’s and 80’s and Planningtorock blessed the show with their sound and gave birth to PlanningtoChanel.”
Bo Ningen & Bobby Gillespie - Minimal
"'Minimal' is the first-ever ‘properly produced’ track—as well as the most catchy song—in Bo Ningen’s thirteen year history.

Records and Davey Harms' continued experiments as Mincemeat And Tenspeed and World War
Ak'chamel, The Giver Of Illness - The Funeral of a Woman Whose Soul is Trapped in the Sun
First vinyl release of Ak'chamel after a prolific cassette discography, The Totemist marks a new direction for the mysterious group. Equipped with studio quality recordings and a (somewhat) lighter tone, opposed to the oppressively lo-fi sound the group is known for.
This is a deep psychedelic-folk album with hints of mysticism, some of which was written and recorded in a ghost-town in the Chihuahuan Desert in far West Texas - a place where the dead outnumber the living. Various overdubs and field recordings were captured in the historic Terlingua cemetery : an ancient burial ground filled with small grottoes and graves made of sticks and stones. This being the final resting place for miners who succumbed from illnesses derived from the toxic rare-earth element known as mercury.
Ak’chamel, The Giver of Illness are fourth world post-colonial cultural cannibalists circumcising the foreskin of enlightenment. Performing in homemade costumes and masks, they have played festivals in various cities around the U.S gaining international attention from Vice, The Wire, Tiny Mix Tapes, Consequence of Sound, and many more. Enter the fourth world now !

Released through Bella Union on July 10th 2020, Life Drawing looks closer to home – Sheffield and thereabouts – for 12 brightly plaintive, character-driven vignettes, set to warm, acoustic, indie-folk-pop backdrops after its predecessor’s close encounters of the synth-driven kind.
