CODE Picks of the Week: Grizzly Bear, Röyksopp and More
Grizzly Bear, “Will Calls” (Diplo Remix) [Warp]
Even if you've never listened to this Brooklyn indie band before, this works. Ed Droste’s voice is designed for the quirky swag of a Diplo re-rub. Who knew?
Röyksopp featuring Susanne Sundfør, “Running to the Sea” (Seven Lions Remix) [Bog Triumph]
Sundfør’s soprano tremble is the perfect counterweight to Seven Lions’ super bass death drop with Rökysopp’s Scandamelodies intertwining the two.
TST & Alvaro, “Out of Control” [Musical Freedom]
Tiësto’s alias allows him to drop vowels and harder beats than usual in this collab with his fellow Dutchman, Alvaro.
Todd Terje, “Spiral” [Olsen Record]
One of two new Terje tracks formally released this week, Spiral winds up the rinse with some proper percussion and several rounds of legit melodies.
Active Child featuring Mikky Ekko, "Subtle" (D33J Remix) [Vagrant Records]
Defiantly ambient, Ekko’s voice is nudged to the background in D33J’s remix, soundtracking a cozy rainy day indoors or the prelude to a dreamscape.
