Listen: Brian Eno Embraces Robot Funk on 'Glitch'

Brian Eno collaborated with poet Rick Holland to create Drums Between the Bells, the innovative musician and producer's second album for the highly respected electronic music label Warp Records. Whereas Eno's previous album for the label, Small Craft on a Milk Sea, favored dirty guitars and ambient drones, the first track from Drums, "Glitch," leans hard on funky bass and buzzing synthesizers. Holland's words are delivered in a computerized monotone, making the song come off like the disco daydreams of a very pensive hard drive. The album will be in stores on July 5th, but you can hear the song in the SoundCloud stream below.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
