New Music: blue swerver
A song title like "Zinedine Zidane" instinctively makes me think of an upbeat janglepop thrash. Which the man himself - a wild guess - wouldn't enjoy in the slightest. But go here and listen to "Zinedine Zidane", one of four tracks streaming by the London-based, jazz-tinged, mellowtronic combo, blue swerver. "Untempo" is also wonderful. In fact, all four of these tracks are great - smoky, noirish, and done with a very light touch.
