Singer-songwriter Duncan Sheik will be releasing his eighth album Legerdemain this fall, and in the wake of the release of the contemplative singles “Photograph” and “Circling” he’s now put out the vibrant track “Birmingham”, which you can hear below. melding folk and blues influences with a sprightly electronic groove, it’s a great little change of pace from the acoustic-based tracks, an injection of modern sounding yet old-fashioned soul into an already soulful record.

Adrien Begrand: The new track by the Berlin house innovators is so minimal, and leaves absolutely no room for air. It’s that tight, that smothering.

Touching on the darker side of post-punk to the point where it brushes the icy shoulder of goth, Guides’ music strikes an impressive balance between taut energy, murky atmospherics, and ostentatious bursts of catharsis. Tightly performed but allowing enough room for abstract blasts of atonal drones, it’s the kind of combination of tension and release that had critics hurling hyperbolic praise to Viet Cong this year. If Guides continue in the direction that new song “Pictures on Pictures” heads, then such acclaim won’t be far off at all.
