Open Your Head EP – Jackson Almond

Jackson Almond describes himself as a Northerner. He releases his tracks on WotNot Music. The rest you’ll have to do yourself.

Anyway, Open Your Head is a tasty EP. Smooth house with some obvious afro influences. My two picks are Common (Dauwd-y fare with some crashing piano drops and tasty Romare-y samples) and Ee Ye.

Bonus track: for you, my loyal reader, you get another taste – on this number Frits Wentink meets Laurence Guy. Not a bad matching if you ask me

Saw You For the First Time – Laurence Guy

What do you get if you throw together the most delicate sections of Leon Vynehall and the playfulness of Harvey Sutherland? Well you get this of course! Laurence Guy’s debut album released last year on Camberwell-based Church Records is a glittery piano-looping genre-transcending gem. There are literally no bad tracks! Enjoy.

He’s playing alongside Session Victim at XOYO this Saturday. Don’t miss out.

Bonus track: Laurence’s break-out single Les Mur, released on Ben Gomori’s Monologue Records back in 2015
