Josep Xortó – I Remember


Josep Xortó, lead singer in Barcelona electro-pop outfit Stand Up Against Heart Crime , unleashes a winning solo release that sounds like something that could have come out on Mute Records at its peak, and gets a perfectly retro visual accompaniment from director Slurp Beta Tutor to match (the lyric-matching design at the beginning is particularly well crafted).

As the video progresses Xortó finds himself against backed by a montage of found footage, with everything from old whiskey adverts to obsolete electronic equipment flashing up, before the whole thing goes full Sci-Fi at the end. “Everyone has been in a band, so there it is, a song about being in a band,” is how the man himself puts it, but this is more like being shot into space than sitting around in a smoky practice room.

Xorto will be spinning some tunes at Catch, 22 Kingsland Road this Saturday night (24th August) as part of their Ceremony night. We recommend taking a trip down there…

Tired Arms - Ursa Minor
A gorgeous track from electronica duo Tired Arms that manages to sound both drifting yet clinical, like a dentist who's been at his own supply of nitrous oxide. The video matches it perfectly: smoky, shadowy, atmospheric and full of subtle patterns and details. Halfway through, the music's creators - Evan Gildersleeve & Lawrence King – march towards the light like they're slowly strolling into God's own nightclub, then, as the music slowly drops away, the images gradually fade into darkness...lovely.
