Traveling at the Speed of Music: Melt Yourself Down – We Are Enough/Fix My Life


myd 2

Melt Yourself Down is a London based punk funk band composed of musicians previously working with/in Transglobal Underground, Mulate Astatke and Acoustic Ladyland. The two tracks released so far via Bandcamp bring a fresh (at least for me) fusion of a energetic punky pogo, shouty vocals ala White Denim, some fuzzy guitars, a pulsating Afrobeat rhythms and a frantic sax improvisation. We Are Enough, the one below, is particularly addictive and provides a strong global feel.

Arrivals: Crystal Fighters – Separator


artworks-000041121487-tsdmjy-cropcrystal fighters 2

This track is totally bonkers! But for those who already know Crystal Fighters, the London based Basque/Argentinian collective of 21th century electro hippies, the sound of their new single is nothing new. Separator cuts through genres ranging from Spanish punk, flower pop, electronic break beats and dubstep to begin with. I have to admit the track bit all over the place but it’s a grower too.

Crystal Fighters announced their sophomore album, the brilliantly titled Cave Rave, which is to drop on 27th of May.

Below listen to their anarchic and still unbelievably fresh debut single, I love London.
