Pantha Du Prince: Black Noise (CD, Rough Trade, February 2010)

This record pairs the most laid-back shuffling techno beats to some delicately pretty melodies, with an emphasis on the chiming sounds of bells, vibraphones, steel drums, and the like. At times it risks being just too sophisticated for my taste, a bit too late night cocktail bar, but for the most part it reins it in, and we get nicely understated minimal goodness. I don’t think much of either of the tracks with vocals, mind, especially Stick To My Side (feat. the guy from Panda Bear).

I bought this from Juno. They call it Minimal / Tech-house.
