It's basically music for the arrivals lounge in Hell, but I love it.

"Tangled Yarn" - Minami Deutsch
Excellent noisy psychedelic deployment from the Japanese krautrockers. I love that that's a real sentence.
"Flesh & Dreams (feat. Sillus)" - Örvar Smárason
A gentle electro chant-like meditation, featuring vocals from the wonderful Sillus. Absolutely gorgeous.
"Cry Little Sister" - Marilyn Manson
If I'm honest, I find my mileage varies a lot with Mr. Manson. However, his 80s covers game has always been strong and this is no exception...
"That's A Lifestyle" - Dirty Projectors
Second track from DP's forthcoming album. More skittish, melodic stuff and it's got a goddam guitar solo in it. Bliss.
"Gateway" - Shy Layers
Shy Layers (the militant disco wing of art type JD Walsh) brings us this lovely mash of filth synth and pop hook.
"Paste" - Callie Ryan
Sweaty, visceral, and (dare I say it) almost 90's Bristol-esque trip-hop type deployment.
"unfold" - Ólafur Arnalds, SOHN
Niggling, gorgeous ambient-classical instrumental from the Icelandic composer and his mate.
