The Saturday Surf #36

Some music bloggers are so time rich that they are able to sit at their laptops and see music drop into their inbox or other feed sources and post about it instantaneously. Breaking More Waves is not one of those. It’s why we post the Saturday Surf. It’s a chance for us and maybe you to catch up on a few musical beauties that would have otherwise slipped away from our ever fast blog super highway. Here are this weeks.

Curxes – Spectre (Strangers Remix)

Take two electronic acts, let them romp around for a while together and soon they’re making babies. [Strangers] have created this one, a remix of Curxes forthcoming single Spectre. It’s like some sort of ketamine fuelled intergalactic bank robbery with its crashes, sirens and spacey pulses. Look out for a forthcoming animated video from Curxes that mixes architecture and music in equal measure.

Ren Harvieu – Tonight (Alice Ant Remix)

Our love of Ren Harvieu just keeps lifting us higher and higher, so this Alice Ant (that’s Alice not Adam) remix is perfect for bringing us back down to a calmer state, with its trippy electronic repetitive groove and Ren’s voice floating around like some sort of sexy washed out ghost.

The XX – Angels

For those expecting that the group’s new material would be a Jamie XX takeover and full of beat bludgeoning dance floor fillers Angels suggests that those expectations could be off mark. For this is a stripped down, restrained love song that should silence every room it’s played in. Beauty can never be understated but this is understated beauty. Angels is taken from the forthcoming album from The XX which drops on September 10th.

Delphic – Good Life

Another band returning to the fold is Delphic, who have shifted direction a little with Good Life. Unfortunately it isn’t some sort of 2k12 banger reminiscing about just how great Felicity Kendal’s garden allotment was (it’s a 1970’s reference kids – Google it) but instead a catchy Passion Pit-esque pop song, which is certainly no bad thing, but it will never be as good as Felcity’s fruit and veg. Yum yum.
