Still no tracklist for Gainsbourg’s Beck-produced IRM, which comes out next year, but we do have a perfectly sensical video from the pair. People stack skateboards on hamburgers all the time.

Re: this song, our own Mehan Jayasuriya said it well:
“On “Quick Canal”, he lovingly builds up and tears down a cathedral of sound for Sadier to inhabit, layering a deep bass groove, tambourine hits and a wall of gently panning organs atop a steady, shuffling beat. Midway through, the song falls apart, briefly taking a detour into glitchy noise before giving way to a squall of fuzzed-out guitars. Try as Cox might to obfuscate the vocals, however, Sadier’s voice proves indefatigable.”
Neko caps off a good year for her and Middle Cyclone with a visit the the Risible One:
Toro Y Moi
Causers of This
Releasing: 23 February
Toro Y Moi is Chaz Bundick. He just got signed to Carpark, who will release two of his albums next year, and you can already hear a great deal of material from the first of them below. He gets a lot of Animal Collective comparisons, surely due to all the beeps and bloops and such, but he’s working in a much more conventional songspace, inviting listeners to just sort of chill out.
