PLAYLIST: FRETT ‘LO-FI’

A collection of Frett’s favourite lo-fi tracks: rough production and deliberate imperfection. Simon and Elliott from the band each choose five of their top tracks.

Frett

You might have heard Frett on the airwaves over at Radio 1 or XFM. Having garnered a strong following of fans across social media and Soundcloud, the duo from Suffolk and Essex are set to release their latest track, ‘Silent Alarm’ soon, with a video coming out next week, opens with a knee trembling rumble of bass, quickly cut through by falsetto vocals like a sharpened knife.

Simon and Elliott have created a playlist of their favourite lo-fi tracks for us, including offerings from the certified King of Chill, James Blake and House masters, Four Tet and Burial.

Bon Iver – ‘Heavenly Father’

Simon – ‘I’ve been listening to Bon Iver over and over for the last forever. Always hits the spot emotionally for me and this track is no exception.’

James Blake – ‘CMYK (live at Pitchfork Festival)’

Elliott – ‘I have requested that this track be played at my funeral, easily one of my favourite tracks of all time! Even better live.’

Jai Paul – ‘Jasmine’

Simon – ‘I remember when I first heard Jai Paul and his oddball production, it was like nothing I’d heard before… I wish he would start playing live, I’d be there.’

Mount Kimbie – ‘Maybes’

Elliott – ‘I have always felt a strange connection with this track, I think its the anticipation of everything coming together, Mount Kimbie are a true inspiration.’

Gorillaz – ‘Kids with Guns’

Simon – Awesome lo-finess. We’re big fans of a good big build up and the end of this track hits the spot.

Shlohmo – ‘Rained the whole time (Nicolas Jaar Remix)’

Elliott – ‘I couldn’t pick between Nicolas Jaar and Shlohmo so i picked both, they’re both great examples of what happens when you push the boundaries of music.’

Sohn – ‘The Wheel’

Simon – ‘I love the clicky, yet organic sounding drum. There’s something beautifully simple about this track.’

Lapalux – ‘Without You’

Elliott – ‘Just love this track, the production is so creative and really makes an impression, I always relate lapalux to the expressionism movement in the art world, a true misunderstood genius!’

Thom Yorke – ‘The Clock’

Simon – ‘Thom Yorke and Radiohead have always been huge inspirations of mine, listening to Radiohead turned me from a musician into a songwriter.’

Burial & Four Tet – ‘Moth’

Elliott – ‘Another great pairing of minds, love how this tune is so simplistic but never boring, could listen to it all night long.’
