Reckon this might be my favourite album of the year so far - 'Omu' is certainly my favourite track. Summer Has Become Cold is the new one from Floating Di Morel, the long-running northern German band centered around Sabine Blodorn and Kai Drewitz. It picks up where their 2018 split with Ulf/FDM left off, with terse drum-machine loops and dubwise walking basslines providing the backdrop for the duo’s icily laconic vocal interplay and minimal, plasmic guitar. Can't quite put my finger on it, there's something really unusual and beguiling about the way the tracks are arranged and mixed: ultra-criss, stripped-back, machinic, but at the same time diffuse, smeared, on the cusp of dissolve... All I can really say is that fans of Bobby Would, Nico + The Faktion, The Phantom Payn, Jac Berrocal etc need it and need it bad.
