No one doing one of these today? Guess I’ll have to!
Big|Brave and Open Mike Eagle are the big ones for me this week. I’ve had the former for a while and it’s utterly brilliant - if you don’t know them imagine Swans fronted by Bjork (a slightly flippant description but puts you in the right ballpark). I’m listening to Open Mike’s new one now and it’s really chilled, seems like a more warm, nostalgic kinda thing than his last few. It’s a concept album about the now demolished projects neighbourhood he grew up in. Think it’s gonna take a few listens to settle but he’s one of the most consistently excellent artists around right now IMO.
What else is worth putting into ears this week then?
