Animal Collective – My Girls

As the name might suggest this is a fairly loosely defined bunch of musicians and guests making some pretty cool, weird indie/electronica. One of the main guys Panda Bear makes pretty good tunes on his own so it’s well worth checking out some of his stuff if you’re into this kinda thing.

Aphex Twin – Polynomial-C

Awesome old breakbeat/hardcore/techno stuff from the warped genius Richard D. James AKA Aphex Twin. I’ve been a huge fan of his music since the early 90s, even if some of it scares the bejesus out of me. His Selected Ambient Works I album is quite simply one of the finest collections of electronic music ever released and if you’ve not heard it then you really need to stop anything you’re doing and buy it immediately.

oOoOO – Burnout Eyess

Paranoid beats from with haunting melodies and vocals at a super snail’s pace. Wicked stuff from some dude in San Francisco. Listen and then buy…

Burial – Endorphin

I’m guessing that this isn’t that unknown to people but thought I’d post it up anyway. Hard to pick a favourite from Burial’s amazing second album, Untrue, but I think I’d go with this one.

Beatless with nothing but haunting pads and vocals this tune always makes the hairs on my neck stand on end. If you haven’t heard it then go and buy the album immediately, it’s probably my favourite electronic/dance record in the past 5 years or so.
