Hachiku was a late discovery for me, maybe from a Spotify playlist, so I dont think I mentioned it in the weekly releases. It was a great surprise, and sounds like an Icelandic version of Soko (although maybe she’s German), and Perfume Genius and CocoRosie (so says Spotify anyhow, so that’ll do for me). Great album. I thought it would be my favourite.
But then I had a proper listen to Ane Brun’s album today, and then played it most of the day. I liked an old song of hers, but was a bit disappointed with her earlier album this year. This one is beautiful though, her voice is so lovely and the music is so great too. Not sure why it took a while for it to click with me.
TSHA was a discovery from the weekly threads, so thank you to whoever that was! Only four songs on it, and I wasn’t expecting to like it, but two (or three or four?) of the songs are just so catchingly good.
Tiña sort of has Porridge Radio vibes? Mixed with Wasuremono and Elf Power. Had a good time listening to it last weekend.
And this Babybird album (which I pre-ordered on cd a few months ago) is actually really good. He still seems a bit hit and miss with all of his many releases, but this one is good.
