Monolith Cocktail - Silver Apples/ Playlist

PLAYLIST : Choice tracks of 2016 part three.
Selection: Dominic Valvona



Three quarters of the way through 2016 already, as the summer – though in the UK we’ve enjoyed a burnished reprise and late run of sunshine through the month – finally dissipates and the long autumn/winter trudge beckons, the Monolith Cocktail is ready to announce another ‘quarterly playlist’ of choice tracks. Featuring both tracks we’ve reviewed and those we never had time to squeeze in, our popular selection is as ever the most eclectic with esoteric Americana, left field hip-hop, Mauritania griot psych, Cape Verde funana and a wealth of hybrids and cross-pollinations all coming together under one roof. Bat For Lashes, M.I.A., Sadat X, Wolf Parade, Grumbling Fur, Gaslamp Killer, Elliot Fresh, Wild Beasts, Vaudou Game and Bob Lind….yes, BOB LIND!! They all make an appearance. It is a bumper edition, with we believe more tracks than we’ve ever featured before on one playlist: It’s generous alright.
