This week’s We Hear brings you four songs, James Blake’s new single Digital Lion, Your New Beloved from Lovelife, a slightly older number, Primitive Radio God’s one hit wonder Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth With Money in my Hands and finally one from Vondelpark, California Analog Dream. First off is James Blake’s newest release from the forthcoming album Overgrown, a track on which he collaborated with legendary producer Brian Eno to create a gorgeous sonic journey. Secondly is one I’ve had on repeat most of the last week, a song called Your New Beloved from Brooklyn based group Lovelife who seem to specialize in a slowed up brand of synth-pop. Finally is an enjoyable and really quite old one hit wonder from Primitive Radio Gods, the annoyingly lengthy titled Standing OUtside a Broken Phone Booth With Money in my Hands. Finally, a track from the British band (named after one of my favorite parts of Amsterdam) Vondelpark. The particular song is “California Analog Dream”, from their 2011 debut EP Sauna.
