Flume – Ezra

21 03 2013

‘I felt like I was in space with Neil Armstrong smoking a blunt’.

As terrifying as it sounds, Flume’s self-titled debut album joined the lofty heights of One Direction and co. and reached #1 on the iTunes album charts. But Wait… Relax… Before you start speedily sliding your cursor towards the big X in the top right corner of your computer screen in a manic attempt to cleanse your soul, I’d suggest you listen to this album through, for it finds itself exquisitely balancing between the polar opposites of commercial success and underground substance.

Múm – Green Grass of Tunnel

A song so delicate that you can’t press the play button too hard  for fear of it breaking. The voice is a gentle caress that strokes you with soft whispers, sitting above a warm cloud of ambient electronica. Think Cara Delevigne in sonic form.

Télépopmusik – Breathe

On this murky Saturday morning riddled with bed-confining hangovers and nauseating comedowns, listening to music probably won’t be at the top of your agenda. However, this song has magical healing powers beyond human comprehension – the Jesus equivalent of ambient electronica, Just Breathe.
