Moko, Benin City, Kirk Spencer - London, Electrowerkz

Two of the acts who graced Neu’s ‘How June Is Now’ showcases return to London for their biggest show yet respectively (if you discount Moko’s recent Glastonbury dig). The South Londoner tops the bill, with electronic experimentalist Kirk Spencer joining forces with DIY staple Benin City, who released their ‘Fires In The Park’ debut this past Monday.

Mali Michael - Ghost

If you possess the kind of flooring, wispy voice that Mali Michael carries, that’s only half of the job done. This new London artist takes things on crucial step further by rinsing his debut song in some clean, inventive pop production, something you wouldn’t discount UNKLE or Luke Abbott from putting their name to. He sings of dreaming, longing for a loved one, but you barely notice. You’re too far immersed in the deep, head-swarming surroundings. Clever stuff.

Windbreaker - Unemployment Sucks and My Best Friend Died

So far this song has all of seven plays, which is grim injustice for someone who’s put every inch of life into their debut track. You’d sense this relative scarcity won’t last much longer.
First of all, what a title. Miserable. And for good reason, if those two statements are true. But Windbreaker absorbs your attention with his actions, not his words. One guy and his guitar let loose. Beyond the scratchy production you’ve one hell of a passionate, energised punk song. His voice evolves midway through into soulful, beyond bold calls, like Majical Cloudz with his head plugged into a fuzz pedal.
