Looking forward to listening to this properly. The Hoarder has been a firm favourite since it was released.
Tstewart - Elysian
Travis Stewart aka machinedrum
These Arms Are Snakes - Duct Tape & Shivering Crows
Odds & ends comp
Ok, so they’ve actually pulled it off. I love it.
Waves of shoegazing electronica with submerged vocal
Cremation Lily - Dreams Drenched In Static
Tim Kasher - Middling Age
Cursive/The Good Life front man releases a concept solo album about not being young anymore. Featuring guest appearances by Laura Jane Grace and Jeff Rosenstock.
Lanue - Fire In My Mind EP
Synth-heavy delicate melodies and earnest lyrics, full of subtle tension and buoyant obscurity. Produced by Low’s Alan Sparhawk.
Ghosted is so good. Reminds me a little of The Necks.
Finn - Everything Is Alright - ravey bangers, akin to Nico Jaar’s work as Against All Logic. Exceptional for this sunny weekend
Flock of Dimes (Jenn Wassner off of Wye Oak). Odds and sods collection.
Came here to add this. Very nice
That’s… very likable
This Reigns album is superb.
Savak ‘Human Error / Human delight’
Indie Rock - touches of Hold Steady, REM, that kind of thing
It’s fab; really immersive. Also a genius change of focus from the last one, which was also fab.
New from one of the members of deathcrash. nice bank holiday music.
ffo caroline and other new folky bands
aright I concede there’s loads of great stuff out as well as KV. Saturno 2000 comp and Joel Ross I’m enjoying.
Not mentioned yet:
Jerry Paper - Free Time
Funky indie pop (maybe what you’d call bedroom pop?) from non-binary artist who likes a ridiculous album cover
AJ Suede & Small Professor - Hundred Year Darkness
More excellent underground hip hop from AJ Suede, for those who liked his last album way back in January. This one is a bit less murky and he calls himself Suede God a lot
Matt Maltese - Quiet Recordings
EP of stripped down versions of songs from his great album last year. Would likely go down well as a mellow easter family time soundtrack
Carmel Smickersgill - We Get What We Get & We Don’t Get Upset
I heard a track from this EP on Unclassified on Radio 3. It’s outsider pop/electronics, weird, fun, unsettling. She’s mentored by Anna Meredith and there are definitely some similarities.
I’ve been waiting on this for a while - it’s a beautiful listen
Enjoying having it on in the background while I’m working
lau.ra - Vol. 1 - The Mixtape
House/UK Bass. Collection of previous singles plus some new tracks. I like this a lot. My dance music tastes are generally a bit more melodic house/Balearic than most of this tape which is a bit bassier/crunchier, so the highlights for me are the flute (or whatever woodwind-type sound that is) on Chengdu, one of the new ones, and Model Man’s keys-driven remix of Don’t Waste My Time.
“I didn’t want the pressure of framing these tracks as an album. They weren’t approached as a ‘body of work’ I just made some banging singles. And then I made some more banging singles, and suddenly I had a lot of banging singles and thought why not sling them all together and press them as a collection on vinyl. So that’s how ‘lau.ra – volume 1’ was born.”
Wet Leg walked away with top spot in our poll last week, with Calexico, Orville Peck and The Linda Lindas all tied for second place.
