Headsound: Luka Lesson - 5th Season

Australian artist Luka Lesson blends music and spoken word on this track from his new album Exit. He recites lyrics assuredly over an abrasive mix of loops and beats on 5th Season the first track on the album out on 1st of May. Sounds like Australia's answer to Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip. I look forward to hearing more.

Headsound: Douglas Dare - Swim

The dark electronica of Radiohead and celestial beauty of Sigur Ross come together on this track from Douglas Dare's debut album Whelm. It has all the depth and texture you would expect from a new signee to Erased Tapes - home to Nils Frahm.

Classical piano, electronics and Dare's soft vocals slowly engulf the listener. It feels like a house anthem  constructed more intricately and delicately, never getting too loud or intense. The track is available as a free download and Whelm is out on May 12th.
