The Week Ahead: Today’s Top Tune 11.6 – 11.10.17

Written by

This week, Today’s Top Tune, our free music download, features work from​​ ​Superorganism, coming to the Moroccan Lounge in December. We’re looking forward to the new year when our beloved ​​St. Vincent comes to Los Angeles. Or shall we say Los Ageless? ​​Gary Numan‘s West Coast tour stops in LA at the Teragram.  Plus, we blur the borders when Mexico City’s ​​Little Jesus makes us dance, and Canadians unite as ​​Planet Giza​​ teams up with Kaytranada.

Superorganism: Something for Your M.I.N.D.

Superorganism describes itself as “​​a sprawling, multi-limbed collection of international musicians and pop culture junkies. Recruited from London, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, seven of the eight now live together in a house/DIY studio/band HQ in Homerton, East London.​ ​​Before the eight even had a name for themselves, they sent a track they made to a friend who wrote and recorded a vocal for Something for Your M.I.N.D. and Superorganism was born.

Planet Giza: Domina (feat. Ka​ytranada​)

Montreal is now a hotbed of experimental production. A rising act on the radar is Planet Giza, which got its start making beats. It invited fellow Montrealer Kaytranada, already a fan and one of  the latest exports to gain international success to collaborate.  After receiving a bunch of drum loops to work with, it came up with Domina.
