meke menete – lonely sexy death

Meke Menete

Meke Menete have eked out a living digging around in Northern soil for sometime, flitting between monikers Youth, then Books, then Youth/Books. But now with a solid conceptual basis for their art, their existence has taken root and grown into a budding flower. Lonely Sexy Death creeps along with a dark mystery, as haunted vocals and distant ambient moods fill the spaces. However within it lies a quality that is very difficult to capture, and one which they manage to do so with aplomb. That quality is something similar to a burning soul, a yearning for life and the eternal yes! This track pretty much seems to cover the distance between illusory and the real, bringing to life a sense of affirmation. Listen to it below:

tribes – we were children

Once the hidden band of Camden Tribes have been creating a buzz recently, their songs show signs of early 90’s American bands, with the obvious link to Nirvarna and Pavement, yet with a helpful dose of english looseness. With an expected, but unconfirmed, single coming out soon we expect to be hearing more from Tribes in 2011. Hear We Were Children Below.

toro y moi – new beat

Carpark records prodigy Toro Y Moi has dropped another track, New Beat, from his next album and it’s a true funk masterpiece. New Beat will feature on Toro Y Moi’s forthcoming album Underneath The Pine due out on the 22nd February. We expect the album will move away from Toro’s original chillwave stance and move towards 70s infused disco having previously heard Still Sound the first single from Underneath The Pine. We wait patiently, for now, hear New Beat below.

With little known about them yet Love Inks are a mystery coming out of Austin at the moment, although FST is sure this won’t be the case for long with rumours of a record deal on the way. Love Inks create melodies with purpose against stripped back textures of guitar and analog drums. Here their latest track Blackeye below.
