Top 25 - 31 January, 2016

1. Montaigne - In The Dark

2. Bad Pony - Zombie

3. Ecca Vandal - End of Time

4. Leisure Suite - Heavy Head (NEW)

Jo's Pick of the Week: I don’t wanna start my new year with a word I know I’ve used a little too much in years past, but my thesaurus search couldn’t come up with a word quite as accurate, so I suppose I’ll just stick with the same one everyone seems to use for them….the latest single from Leisure Suite is all sorts of dreamy, perfectly distant in the way the best chilled electronica should be, all the while managing to pull you close with every beat. This duo from Melbourne have been making little and very impressive waves since the release of their debut EP in late 2014 and this is a sweet taste of what is to come from their second EP Lay Low, due for release February 15. I promise to come up with a word other than ‘dreamy’ to describe them before then.

5. Massive Attack, Tricky and 3D - Take It There (NEW)

Matt's Pick of the Week: Massive Attack have been away for extended periods of time before, but it's crazy to think that their last album Heligoland was released back in 2010. Well, they're finally back with the Ritual Spirit EP and on track four they're recapturing the magic of their 2003 release, 100th Window. There's something about 'Take It There' that makes the song sound like it wouldn't be out of place on that collection. The beats are slightly more threatening than the pre-2000s Massive Attack and Robert Del Naja/3D's vocal segments have that borderline mesmerising/creeping me out vibe that came with the single 'Butterfly Caught', but it's the added element of trip-hop hero Tricky that makes this the finest Massive Attack release in a long time. It's actually awesome to have them back. (Matt Bond)
