The Best of This Week’s Singles: Nine Inch Nails, Tunng, Holden and more!

Published on June 12th, 2013 | Jonny Abrams

The best of this week’s singles? Well, why wouldn’t we? Furthermore, why wouldn’t you?

Yes, the best of this week’s singles is heeeeeeere to save the daaaaaayyyy! Starting with this one…

Benin City – “Faithless”

James Blake meets The Knife anyone? That is to say it’s ever so trendy but that doesn’t detract from the enjoyment factor. Thinking on, there’s a bit of Ghostpoet in there too. “Faithless” is disorienting, laterally conceived and throws in enough surprises to enliven the brooding rigidity of its melodic progression. Curiosity piqued.

Co-pilgrim – “Sialo”

More Teenage Fanclubby/Sparklehorsey loveliness from the Mark Gardener-produced Southampton bunch, whose particular brand of harmony-infused liquid sunshine reminds Rocksucker that, done well, familiarity can be comforting rather than something to decry.

That’s Co-pilgrim: comfort music, and we don’t say that dismissively. Just pop it on your summer playlist, that’s a good lad.

Holden – “Renata”

Acid-drenched wibbliness fit to rival Simian Mobile Disco, and with just as much dancefloor-friendliness pumped through its blaring, climactic mix of juddering electronic elements. All with a suitably hallucinogenic set of visuals to match. Bravo, James Holden!

Mixhell feat. Deidre Muro and Tyler Pope – “The Way”

You think it’s going to be some identikit Eurotrance thing, but it says, “I’m just going to slip into something more comfortable,” and reenters the room as a beaming, psych-tinged carnival of synthy elation. Result.

Nine Inch Nails – “Came Back Haunted”

They’re baaaack! This is the kind of darkly luscious breeding ground for gurgling synths and menacing drum machine that Depeche Mode might have been better off returning with on their recent comeback, albeit NIN are traditionally the ‘stompier’ of the two.

A full album of this might weary, but for now at least it’s good reason to be optimistic about 2013’s chances of squeezing out yet another great latter-day record. We shall see in September, for that is when Hesitation Marks is slated for release.

The Crookes – “Bear’s Blood”/”Dance in Colour”

Both songs sound totally derivative and totally natural at the same time. That is, all the sounds on show are abundantly familiar, but the songwriting and musicianship are of a sufficiently high standard to forge a nifty little roost of its own. The Crookes won’t change music but if all of their songs are as good as these two then they should bloody well get recognition for it.

Tunng – “The Village”

Tunng’s new album Turbines is flipping phenomenal, the folktronica odyssey to end all folktronica odysseys, and this is a song from it.

So, you know, don’t just sit there; get investigating, for crying out loud.
