Celista - Brooklyn

A new gem finds its way. From a far off place, fugacious producer Celista returns. Shrouded in a veil of loosely defined escapism, the mysterious project cannot be pinned to a map. In the fall, Celista released its debut EP. Now, as winter turns spring, Celista resurfaces bringing a new downtempo dream, ‘Brooklyn,’ to my inbox, to my ears. Following songs like ‘Endless Day’ and ‘Warm Autumn,’ it’s the first single off Celista’s upcoming full length which is planned to drop later this year.

“last night, new sound, early morning, new sounds awake.

absent, distant. coming home, i see it over the light.”

Original Melody - Cosa Say

Icelandic hip-hop collective Original Melody is producer Fonetik Simbol and MC’s Ivar Schram, S.Cro and Shape. The four mix samples and smooth beats to create their unique sounding hip-hop jams. Check out ‘Cosa Say’ off their album Back & Fourth which hits stores today. The track features a springy Italian vocal sample (“Che cosa sei?” What are you?) with relaxed beats and equable verses. Listen to Back & Fourth at the group’s bandcamp. Original Melody are no Sigur Rós or FM Belfast but they’re making a name for themselves among Iceland’s best.

Icelandic Volcanic Ash Threatens

‘I Don’t Know What I Can Save You From’ — European air travel is at a standstill as towering clouds of ash float ominously overhead. But don’t mind the encroaching darkness, today we’ve got a few songs to get you in tune for the week ahead. Here’s some Foals, Damien Marley & Nas, LA Duo Kisses, Bassnectar, Toro Y Moi (with arguably the chillest thing to come out of Baltimore), and several mashed up Icelanders (who may or may not be responsible for this whole mess). Speaking of Sigur Rós, check out their absurd interview on NPR— they simply cannot speak English.
