New Releases 02/09/22

Matthew Halsall

Expecting beautiful, spacious, spiritual jazz

Bill Orcutt

His album with Chris Corsano was one of my favourites from last year. Expecting ramshackle experimental guitar in a jazzy bent

John Ondolo

No idea who this guy is but I like the artwork and name of the album so will give it a listen too


Living Hour - Someday Is Today
Track one sounds like a laid back Beach House, not listened to the rest yet.

Benni Hemm Hemm - Lending
Icelandic chamber pop folk, singing in Icelandic.

Antarctic Wastelands & Norvik - Once A Home
It’s most likely just the first artist’s name that makes me think this, but nice glacial dreamy ambient piano sounds. Nicely relaxing and comforting.

Junior Brother - The Great Irish Famine
Irish ramshackle folky stuff. The Irish contingent (well, @Icarus-Smicarus) will know much more about him than me.

Mo Troper -MTV
Lo-fi alt-power pop. 15 tracks barely more than 2 minutes each.

Unloved - The Pink Album
New album from Jade Vincent, Keefus Ciancia and David Holmes. Double album including collaborations with Jarvis Cocker, Étienne Daho, Raven Violet and Jon Spencer.


Flowertruck - Partly Cloudy

This week’s gorgeous jangly Aussie indie recommendation


Also enjoyed that corsano album from last year. Will have a listen

Loved the tracks released from this so far, so it’s my pick for today.


George Fitzgerald - Stellar Drilling

Dance music. I’ve no idea what genre it is.

Listen to the release Stellar Drifting by George Fitzgerald on Qobuz Open Qobuz

Lake Haze - Henosis

I’m expecting chilly, low key techno

Listen to the release Henosis by Lake Haze on Qobuz Open Qobuz


Enablers - Some Gift

Spoken word alternative rock, FFO protomartyr, oxbow?

Feels like ages since their last music so I’m looking forward to this one.


Bo Sedkid - Goring

Hotly tipped Sri Lankan hip-hop - I’ve been looking forward to this one.

Ross Ainslie, Brìghde Chaimbeul & Steven Byrnes Haberlin

Scottish/Irish folk trio with a mixture of original compositions, traditional Scottish songs, and tunes from Bulgaria, Spain and France.

Laura Cannell - We Long to be Haunted

an unearthly reimagining of sacred music, welding pipe organ improvisations to lysergic church bell manipulations and snatched field recordings… five carefully pruned explorations of Medieval folk.


Junior Brother - The Great Irish Famine

Second album from one of my favourite folk artists. Feels a bit more ambitious than the debut, though that was great too.

He reminds me a lot of Richard Dawson, if you’re into Peasant then give this a go. Also for fans of Lisa O’Neill or Joanna Newsom.


Oh, beaten to it

Kevin Hufnagel (Gorguts, Dysrhythmia, Vaura) and Jamie Myers (Hammers of Misfortune, WITTR) playung gothy post-punk twin peaks music. :blue_heart:


I have an album out today, I guess it could be labelled as (very) lo-fi electronic music.


Popped up on Bandcamp yesterday - The Last Roses by Mary Lattimore. 16 minutes of harp loveliness


And I’ve got Switched on Vol 5 by Stereolab to collect from Resident later too


Will be checking ^this out. Love all their previous stuff.


The singles haven’t really pushed my buttons - I’m wondering if David Holmes isn’t so central to the project these days (especially since he’s put out a couple of solo tracks in the last twelve months too)

really like the new matthew halsall ep. friend of mine put me onto him a coupla years back, he’s really good. such a mood. :slight_smile:
