Black Butter Records, a UK label constructing a mopey little edifice with signings such as Kidnap Kid and Joel Compass, are taking bets on Solomon Grey. The BBC’s trained parrot Zane Lowe just enjoyed a cracker and is tipping this duo for future BBC Radio One dominance. Discobelle’s online contemporaries are similarly all collecting a number and joining the queue – comments like ‘hauntingly beautiful’ and ‘lovelorn’ and ‘gee, this is pretty good music’ can be heard wafting over the assembly.

Is it good? Is it bad? Could you craft a seaworthy vessel out of it? We love it, but stream away yourself and let us know your take.

JAMES-BLAKE-YELLOW

British crooner and producer James Blake announced earlier this week that this year will see the follow up to his much acclaimed self titled debut album released in 2011, new album “Overgrown” will be released April 8th.

The track “Retrograde” premiered on Zane Lowe earlier today, it features signature singing from James Blake along with a desolate hand clap and lots of dramatic synths. (Via My Blog Cliche)

Portishead are releasing a brand new track – “Chase The Tear” for Amnesty International. The track was aired first in the UK on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show (7-9pm) on December 9th on the eve of International Human Rights Day (December 10th) and similarly on radio stations around the world. It will be available as an exclusive download single from 7 Digital from December 10th, with all earnings going towards Amnesty’s human rights work and all rights given to the organisation.
