Back for the fourth day, today’s Old Dog New Hits features music from Young Echo and CocoRosie.
My new hit is Young Echo’s Jupiter Rise which is out on their new album Nexus released on RAMP Recordings on May 27th. If you don’t know much about Young Echo you’re missing out. Young Echo comprises of the great Bristol producers Vessel, El Kid, Kahn and Zhou and they also host a monthly radio show. Jupiter Rise is a hauntingly beautiful with slow vocals, and fluttery beats.
My Old Dog is Coco Rosie’s Noah’s Ark (the single). It came out in 2005 right around when my favourite music consisted of Bright Eyes, Tilly and the Wall and various other Saddle Creek bands. When Latitude’s lineup was released the other day I was surprised to see them on the lineup and appearing between Disclosure and Múm. Noah’s Ark was one of my favourite songs back then, and it’s a shame I’d forgotten about them. I haven’t listened to much of CocoRosie’s albums after Noah’s Ark, but I will be definitely looking out for their new album Tales of a Grass Widow also released (strange coincidence) on May 27th on City Slang.
