This week’s playlist is split between summery pop sounds and weirdo electronics. In the case of the former, there’s vivid sounds from Hunx & his Punx singer Seth Bogart (on “Nina Hagen-Daaz”, featuring LA model/actor/musician Clementine Creevy) and MGMT’s upbeat tribute to Suicide frontman Alan Vega (covering the late singer’s “Goodbye Darling”). In the case of the latter, there’s some hi-tech noise from UK producer Lexxi (“Up Top”) and a vintage, recently dug-up Aphex Twin and µ-Ziq collaboration (“Vodka”).
