New releases - 11/11/2022

My remaining ones:

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.

This is great. Might be the best thing he’s released so far.

This is also great.

The sorona pine - ll

Slint-ish chamber folk? Maybe? Ffo slint, low, slowcore.

This is a re-release of an album from 1997. I’d never heard of them before but this is good stuff

Have a remix featured on this, which came out on Saturday. It was originally 3 ambient pieces (which are included) which have been remixed in various styles of those on the PVC label -

Some very bass heavy suggestions from me this week. I had a few others but thankfully they have already been mentioned…

Toumba - Rosefinch - EP - IDM
Reminds me of Amon Tobin’s Two Fingers output but with a Levant region edge to it all.

The Dark Jazz Project - The Dark Jazz Project - LP - Avant-garde Electro
Pounding tribal beats. I warn you this one starts loud with heavy bass and only gets LOUDER!

Kami-O - Veiled - LP - EDM
Bass heavy electro from Glasgow. Its a little bit hit and miss for my tastes, but still worth a listen.

Daniel Avery was last week’s favourite with Carla del Forno and RAP Ferreira in joint second.

Late entry

Milc & Televangel - Neutral Milc Hotel

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.

The others I missed for this week…

Modern Stars - Space Trips For The Masses - LP - Psych
Italian kraut psych band that have a few light sprinkles of folk. Not a bad song on the whole thing.

Delivery - Forever Giving Handshakes - LP - Punk
Catchy angular guitar tracks. It starts really strong but I never managed to finish it in one sitting; still worth a listen.
