Yes…it’s the day before, so I may upset the regulars…but I thought it’d be good to talk about what to listen to the night before…so we can all have something queued up. For me personally, it’s shaping up to be a very strong week (makes up for last week, at least).
Anna von Hausswolff - Dead Magic. The big one, for me. If you haven’t heard of her…check her out, probably starting with Ceremony. A bit difficult to pigeonhole…perhaps you could say an art pop behemoth like Kate Bush/Bjork, with a heavy focus on organs and a pre-metal Chelsea Wolfe vibe.
Lucy Dacus - Historian. I didn’t give No Burden enough of a go…but the two preview singles to this (Night Shift and Addictions) have piqued my interest. Looks like it could be a nice slice or literate, folky indie rock.
Camp Cope - How to make Friends and Socialise. Quite a bit of hype around this. I like noisey, angry, punchy stuff like this…but, like everything in this vein, it will need the strength of songs to carry it.
Moaning - S/T. Getting lukewarm reviews, so it might be too flawed for some…but anything described as a shoegaze/post-punk hybrid usually gets my juices going…plus the singles have been solid so far.
Other things that people might mention:
Gwenno (cornish language psych-pop, anyone?)
Jonathan Wilson (loved his first 2…but have a bad feeling about this. Just look at the cover).
