Back once again, like one of those renegade masters. It's been said by Musick's critics that this weekly feature is an easy way to fill space and that it involves very little in the way of actual work. These people are very observant.
Junior by Royksopp
The album, the duo's third, features the vocal talents of a veritable Scandinavian smorgasbord of pop, with Lykke Li, Robyn, Anneli Drecker and Karin Dreijer-Andersson of the Knife / Fever Ray all adding their tuppence worth. Highlight is the Robyn-assisted 'The Girl and the Robot', which is also the next single.
'My Girls' by Animal Collective
We've no doubt written about this band and this amazing song before, but it's now available to download as a 'single'. Thinking about it, the band aren't exactly mainstream fodder, which means little chance of radio airplay, meaning that most people who are so inclined have already brought the album so wouldn't need to download this song anyway. Expect a HUGE new entry come Sunday.
COPY OFF YOUR UNCLE
Yes by Pet Shop Boys
The boys are back! Yes isn't quite the masterpiece early reports suggested, what with the whole thing sagging around the middle, much like Charlie from Eastenders. But producers Xenomania know their way around a sparkling pop melody and the two young lads who front the band are no slouches either.
