Bands x Brands: FKA twigs & FaltyDL

This week, we are going to highlight artists who reside on the left of centre side of the electronic music spectrum.

FKA twigs
British singer, songwriter, and producer Tahliah Barnett aka FKA twigs just released her debut album called LP1 yesterday. This comes after releasing a series on EPs named EP1 and EP2, in 2012 and 2013, respectively. Her style and delivery is minimal, but her voice and emotion shines through on this excellent debut. Boston Globe describes it perfectly as having “the grace and mystery of a smoke ring, just out of reach but so beguiling to behold.” Watch out for this artist in the US.

From the US, Brooklyn based producer/DJ Falty DL just released his new album called In The Wild. We’ve been a fan of his production and DJ sets for a while now, and hopefully this release will bring him a wider audience. His clever use of samples and jazzy tones keeps this release moving nicely with stand out tracks being “New Haven” and “In The Sh*t.”
