Caribou’s latest record is a bit of a concept album about the ups and downs of love.
For his sophomore album, electronic music producer SBTRKT brings on more guests, more experiments, but somehow ends up with a less enjoyable album.
French electronic music producer Mr. Oizo has dropped a new track that’s set to be featured on his forthcoming full-length album titled The Church. The album is currently looking at a November 18th release date via Brainfeeder Records.
To be completely honest, I had never put much stock in Mr. Oizo’s music before I heard this track. His previous material struck me as being pretty inconspicuous, just not that bold. However, “Bear Biscuit” has a huge freak flag that it has no shame in flying. With loads of heavy, noisy start-stop grooves, I’m not sure if I’m waiting for a more fluid song to start or getting a musical beatdown. The disorienting vocal samples are a nice touch as well.
Props to Mr. Oizo on this one!

Fusing psychedelic pop, noise rock, lo-fi, and synth punk, this Julian Casablancas side-project is incredibly dense, diverse, and fun.
