The Hood Internet – Pyramidspeak (Purity Ring vs Frank Ocean)
The Hood Internet, always finding great unexpected combinations. If this remix floats your boat you just might be into the collaboration Purity Ring did with Danny Brown.
There has been so much amazing music made this year. Most of these albums have been on constant repeat at the Silent Shout office since we heard them. If you’ve been following the blog all year our love for these records won’t surprise you. If you haven’t, we can’t wait for you to hear them! There shouldn’t be so much damn agreement in the critical world. We don’t need multiple lists of the same 50 albums in a slightly different order.
11. Hot & Cold – Border Area – Bandcamp
3. Blanche Blanche Blanche – Wink with Both Eyes – Stream
We never, ever thought that we would be posting a Danny Brown song on this blog, despite being huge fans of his. Well, Purity Ring have dealt us a blessing with this new version of the phenomenal song Belispeak from their first album.
Can’t wait to hear an Azealia Banks guest spot on the next Grimes song (seriously, somebody make that happen).
Purity Ring‘s debut LP ‘Shrines’ has been out on 4AD/Last Gang for sometime now and it’s a bit of a shame we didn’t get to it sooner. A heavyweight contender for 2013′s Polaris prize, the album touches all the pressure points that make a music fan like myself instantly turn to jelly. Otherworldly beats that rumble the trunk of your car, ethereal vocals and lyrics that both confuse and placate at the same time. It’s almost hard to review because us bloggers run out of synonyms for ‘the best thing I’ve heard in a while’.
Purity Ring is continuing to take over the world. Their new album Shrines is out July 23!
