XL Recordings is on my all time favorite labels short list, thanks to the immense roster of talent they’ve dazzled us with over the years. In case you didn’t know, XL’s label head Richard Russell has his own musical project, too, named Everything Is Recorded. He’s already released a debut EP already, and its title track has received a music video treatment. Close But Not Quite is a classy soulful minimalist electronic piece featuring vocals by British electronic soul artist Sampha. It’s a sparkling, glimmering gem and its video takes us on a journey with Sampha through the creation of the song. You can stream/download Everything Is Recorded’s Close But Not Quite EP, here.

Womack has worked with Gorillaz in the past, and Russell and Albarn recently teamed up on the DRC Music project.”
