RIOT Release Radar: #081

a Ri-Ku:
no time for fever
jamie.t is returning
panic prevented

Khruangbin & Leon Bridges // Chocolate Hills
The coolest collaboration in music is back. ‘Chocolate Hills’ is the second track to be lifted from Texas Moon, Khruangbin & Leon Bridges’ second joint venture.. and it’s gunna be good.

Lime Garden // Marbles
Fresh from their support slot with IDLES, Lime Garden have pulled it out of the bag again on ‘Marble’. The snap of that sneer drum leading into the chorus is impossible not to love.

BODEGA frontman Ben Hozie gets self-analytical on ‘THROWN’, and never has an existential crisis been so danceable. New album Broken Equipment arrives in March.

Ivan Ave // Gear
Norway’s Ivan Ave has been fusing rap with jazz sensibilities and a splash lo-fi production for ages, and ‘Gear’ marks a perfect example of his signature sound.

Deep Tan // beginners’ krav maga
‘beginners’ krav maga’ challenges the idea that womxn ought to take classes in self defence in order to walk the streets safely. A point that badly needs to remain in the public conversation, set to a deliciously wonky rhythm.

Pup // Robot Writes A Love Song
The widely-loved Canadians have marked the announcement of their fourth album THE UNRAVELING OF PUPTHEBAND with this belting piece of feel-good transatlantic punk.

Bollards // Plates Up
Absolutely mesmerising. Throughout it’s 4 minute runtime, ‘Plates Up’ shifts and reshapes, bending and bowing into a rather addictive debut single. Stay tuned for more from the London quartet.
