Chrissy Zebby Tembo & Ngozi Family - My Ancestors (1974)

sun-soaked, fuzzed out, wah-distorted, Hendrixian psychedelia from Zambia, so great.

as my awesome ex-housemate pointed out, there's also some black sabbath in "trouble maker."

Planning For Burial - Late Twenties Blues CS (2011)

Artist: Planning For Burial
Album: Late Twenties Blues CS
Release: 2011
Label: s/r

1. Where You Rest Your Head At Night
2. Late Twenties Blues
3. I Put Red House Painters On A Mixtape For You
4. Rest Your Head

Planning For Burial is a solo project devoted to the art of slowcore (see Red House Painters). These dreamy, droney, shoegazey tracks wash over you with overwhelming melancholy, paralyzing any thought you had of being chipper today. Tracks 2 and 4 are interludes more than anything, but tracks 1 and 2 clock in at somewhere around 7 minutes, giving this tape some heft. Though time has no bearing once your sucked into this release.

Pro tip: Track 3 on repeat for the win.

Get it.

Four Tet - Jupiters single (2012)

We love Four Tet aka Kieran Hebden here at fknchill. Consistently progressive, layered, melodic electronic music. Just the way it should be. Chilling for the house, pumping for the club.

This is his new single Jupiters (if you need a catch-up, check out his last album There is Love in You - awesome). This track's so fresh I'm listening to it as I write this. ;-)

Loving this and need something more straight away? Check out his collaboration with Burial from a while back, Moth: phenomenal.

Four Tet's playing at festivals all over the world this Summer - so if you don't know him, get to know.
