Mordialloc (Melbourne) duo Slum Sociable are moving from melancholy and inverted to explorative and experimental. They create Lo-Fo washed-out jazz hop from Mordialloc’s filthiest animals.
And that’s about everything that’s known about this secretive duo.
Anyway is their debut track.

Fallen Sun is the second single from his forthcoming EP Flux.

Put simply, you could call Young Fathers a lo-fi R&B trio; however, they don’t completely fit in that box with their wide-spanning spread of alternative rap, indie pop, reggaeton, and electronic music.
Formed in Edinburgh, Scotland in 2008 by Alloysious Massaquoi, Kayus Bankole, and G. Hastings, the group started performing in nightclubs when the band members were in their teens, ultimately recording a debut album, Inconceivable Child… Conceived.
Their second full-length, Dead, was released in February 2014. The album – built on their knack for fusing inventive but gritty rhythms and sounds with incisive lyrics – gained a lot of critical attention.
Rain Or Shine is taken from their new album White Men Are Black Men Too.

I Don’t Speak French are Håkan Moberg Persson, Jens Torvaldsson, Andreas Bohlin, Louise Lindenger and Nathanaël Bartolo.
The band started out as the artistic outlet for a young producer and songwriter from the south of Sweden. But it slowly grew into something much more with help of fellow musicians and close friends.
The music in its essence is simple, and could be labeled as “indiepop”. But strives to grow and develop into something bigger than the box that it spawned from.
