This week we’re highlighting new music from Danny Elfman, Sylvan Esso, and Danger Mouse & Black Thought.
Danny Elfman – Bigger. Messier.
Danny Elfman’s latest endeavor, Bigger. Messier. takes 2021’s Big Mess and turns it on its head. Collaborations and guest vocals include Trent Reznor, Iggy Pop, HEALTH, Squarepusher, and more. Danny Elfman sums the project up best, “This record was all about the joy of experimentation. I really wanted to enjoy the experience of completely relinquishing control of my work, which is something that I’d never done before.”
Standout Songs: We Belong – Squarepusher Remix, Sorry – Kik606 Remix, True (Trent Reznor), Native Intelligence, (Trent Reznor) Kick Me (Iggy Pop), Native Intelligence – Ghostemane Natural Selection Remix
Sylvan Esso – No Rules Sandy
From the initial notes of No Rules Sandy Nick Sanborn and Amelia Meath create a world in which glitchy samples and frantic synths and drums are the norm. Their fourth album sees them embrace the wild and weird. No Rules Sandy is a trip worth taking.
Standout Songs: Look At Me, Echo Party, Didn’t Care, Sunburn, Alarm, Coming back To You
