Ernest Hood - Back To The Woodlands
A previously unreleased collection of songs, originally recorded back in the 1970s. He was originally a jazz guitarist in the 1940s, until polio let him in a wheelchair and unable to play the guitar. His first album proper, Neighborhoods, is in Pitchfork’s top 50 ambient albums. Field recordings and delicate synthesiser tracks. Nice and dreamy.
La Zorra Zapata - Acantilados
I can’t immediately see who picked this Peruvian artist for the DiS song contest, but you were quite a big fan, @Mert_Aksac. Very dreamy sounds.
Warhaus - Ha Ha Hearbreak
Solo album from the singer of Belgian band Balthazar.
Sirotkin (Сироткин) - Тень первого облака (First Cloud Shadow)
Russian melodic indie band. Found them from a short playlist by Mew singer last year.
Jordana - I’m Doing Well, Thanks For Asking EP
dreamy bedroom pop.
Lullatone - Shapes & Time
“music for reading books [or] watering houseplants”. Quiet acoustic guitar based instrumentals.
Nik Freitas - Tule Fog
Instrumental/vocal record with no lyrics, to soundtrack his photography book about skateboarding in California in the 90s. Sundrenched upbeat tunes.
Bulgarian Cartrader - Motor Songs
Upbeat Bulgarian via Berlin alt-pop maybe r&b sounds too.
Sin Fang - Vatnajökull
Apparently Vatnajökull is Iceland’s biggest ice cap. This is different from his normal alt-pop songs, and pretty much sounds like what a soundscapey album about Iceland’s biggest ice cap would sound like.
Nice underground Hip-Hop album. The production’s handled by Televangel whose project with AJ Suede (who has 2 features on this) Metatron’s Cube from earlier this year was liked around these parts. Also features Deniro Farrar, Defcee, Zilla Rocca & Sleep Sinatra.
Much like the debut really enjoying this but I think it has a bit more edge over the first one. Similar to Dry Cleaning in that it’s nice to switch off to and immerse in the lyrics. Still reminds me of Misty’s Big Adventure but more heavily on the post-punk side.
