Druid Cloak – The Poultice

Game of Thrones? More like ‘Bastion of the Sterling Thrones’.

That’s the rather grandiose title of North American producer Druid Cloak’s third EP, out Sheffield’s Bad Taste Records. Thanks to Abeano, we have a taste of what’s to come with ‘The Poultice’, an atmospheric track that shells its gloomy, industrial beginning to reveal a slice of melodic electronica:

Considering the man himself describes the EP as “a tale of rescue…[following] a young hero through a battle to save his true love from the grips of evil”, we’d better give it a listen then…

Ikonika – Aerotropolis

You know what you need to hear? The new Ikonika album. Luckily, it’s here for you (via The Guardian):

‘Aerotropolis’, inspired by her time DJing in an airport city, is out on Hyperdub July 29th and is essential listening. Lighter than her 2010 debut, it has more nostalgic, guilty influences. She seems to be smiling more in pictures these days too. Here’s a GTA-esque vid for ‘Mr Cake’, a track title Abdel-Hamid claims was inspired by a shit cake in a Nunhead bakery. Sounds inspirational.

Finally, that lot over at Abeano are putting on a details-light night at The Shacklewell Arms on Thursday featuring Ikonika herself. We suggest you join us there.
