RIOT Release Radar: #103

a RI-ku:
RIP Christine
music loses an icon
worth a revisit

Tropical F*ck Storm // The Golden Ratio
Tropical Fuck Storm will be dropping their new record Subversive Behaviour in February, featuring a 19-minute Jimi Hendrix cover: need we say more?

Gold Panda // Plastic Future (Skee Mask Remix)
Still basking in the glory of his near-flawless album The Work, Gold Panda recruits Skee Mask to put his fingerprints on ‘Plastic Future’. Tour dates for the North have commenced, with shows in London, Bristol, Cardiff, Falmouth and *checks notes* Norway taking place in March.

Anna B Savage // in|FLUX
Mercurial and ambitious in every release that she puts her name to, this title track from forthcoming album sees Anna B Savage’s declaration of independence build to a rousing climax.

Ben Gregory // deathbed hangover
Ben Gregory, frontman of the much-loved but ultimately ill-fated Blaenavon, has launched his solo career and we promise it’s not what you expect. Uneasy, jarring and confrontational: we absolutely love it.

Bass Drum of Death // Head Change
Purveyors of scrappy blues-rock Bass Drum of Death seldom get the props that they deserve for their head-pounding, foot-stomping riffs. New album Say I Won’t has been created alongside The Black Keys‘ Patrick Carney; a match made in sludgy guitar-rock heaven.

Trophie // Chemical
And now for something completely different. Having studied at Sydney’s prestigious Conservatorium of Music, Trophie tackles dystopian ideas and introspective storms through a cocktail of euphoric electronic pop and EDM.

Sunglasses For Jaws // For Another Day
Talk about swagger. Sunglasses For Jaws deliver their new single ‘For Another Day’ with an irresistibly woozy sorta romance. Imagine a Bond theme on ket.
