The 2ser Feature Album of the Week comes from Malian-born guitarist Moussa Diakite with his third studio album “Blue Magic”. Combining the sound of music from the Bougouni area of Mali, the now Sydney-based artist blends funk-infused polyrhythms and afro-blues grooves with uplifting guitar and vocal melodies. Recorded initially during the pandemic, Diakite then took the tracks to Mali to add some traditional West African instrumentation. Focused on themes of love, unity and respect as well as the struggles of his homeland, this is another amazing release from Diakite!
Following up off the back of their 2022 album “Time Skiff’s”, Animal Collective have returned for their twelfth album “Isn’t It Now?” The Baltimore four-piece were reunited in the studio for the first time in over a decade, having usually written and recorded projects remotely, incorporating earthy and psychedelic material originally written in 2019 with tight intricate melodies and druggy off-centre rhythms. The track list brings you along for a hypnotic trance evolving from cheerful melodies from lead vocalist and co-founder Panda Bear (Noah Lennox) to dark and ambient spaces, showcasing the rich and innovative sound we’ve seen through the years from the band.
Looking locally now, Eora-based supergroup Mega Fäuna release their debut EP “Fibonacci Sequins”, an intimate exploration into heartbreak, catharsis, the beauty of nature and more. The sparkly and jangly instrumentation shines through on this record, as the shimmer of the guitars and rolling drums ebb and flow beautifully, giving way to the euphoric peaks of the vocals.
The tenth album “Again” released on Warp Records from revered producer Oneohtrix Point Never is a twisting and morphing soundtrack of bright distorted samples and dissonant vocal samples. Having worked with the likes of The Weeknd, FKA Twigs and Nine Inch Nails, Daniel Lopatin will transport you into an earthly trip of rich mind-bending soundscapes. Whilst leaning on his skilled musicianship in tracks like “Krumville”, Lopatin never lets go of his unique rhythmic pulses and textural synthesisers which have earned him critical acclaim globally.
We have some absolutely top shelf indie-rock as well with the debut album “Diamonds” from Naarm/Melbourne duo Luluc. The incredible dream-folk writing of singer/songwriter Zoe Randell and lush tones and vocal harmonies of multi-instrumentalist Steve Hassett are to die for, drawing comparisons from many to the likes of Nick Drake and Nico. Now based in Brooklyn (USA), Luluc arrived on the Melbourne scene in 2010, garnering international recognition for their pensive and ethereal sound.
Tune in to also hear incredible new singles added to rotation from Hayku Kyah, R.M.F.C and more playing all week long!
