2017 In Aspic - Episode 3
Episode 3 of 2017 In Aspic mixes two complementary types of records I've been stumbling across this year.
The first are newer artists who play electronic music reminiscent of the industrial music of the 1980s. This includes artists like Shed, ADULT., and Todd Terje. The counterpoint comes from popular artists of the 1980s - Alison Moyet, Erasure, and Blondie - who continue to make vibrant music the sounds new and fresh. Even Fab Five Freddie lends his rap to a Vex Ruffin song.
Also joining the mix are a host of great songs from artists like Tennis, Muse, and Jens Lekman. The mix closes with This Cities Undone by The Moonlandingz, featuring extended screaming from the great Yoko Ono.
Lots of fun stuff here. Hope you enjoy.
