KRAKKEN by Acid Casuals.

This week's tour of new (or newish) music ends with Krakken by Acid Casuals. As you may know and as you can read elsewhere, Acid Casuals are a project affiliated with the Super Furry Animals, and you can hear a family resemblance here in the drum sound and the keys.

But Krakken (and Clash of the Titans is the obvious allusion for me, go right to the end of this) works on its own terms, most remarkably in the gorgeous vocals. They float over the track, never really fully connecting with the beat but not needing that connection to succeed.

Anyway, enjoy it, and give your loved ones a hug this weekend!
