New releases 15/10/21

Robin Guthrie - Mockingbird Love

Shimmery guitar instrumental EP from a Cocteau Twin.


Ydegirl - Ydegirl

The Danish musician’s debut album blends R&B and pop with elements of Nordic baroque to conjure feelings of past, present, and future


Released last week but hey: Sungazer - Perihelion.

Excellent music YouTuber Adam Neely’s band making some very rhythmically complex, playful jazzy synthy jams

Concepts behind the tracks discussed here (he has a thing for clickbaity titles but he’s not like that in the videos themselves at all)


Never a worry. I quite enjoyed it too, I liked the tracks Let me Miss You and Votives

Welcome Dayrider, good to have you on board chief.

I really liked the last track on this album, Utopia Planet, I always got time for an unexpected brass section. I think its Beautiful Directions that is the one with Ben on it which had some really nice cello and bass sections on it, imo.

They could always team up with Morrissey and do Rick Astley covers.


New album from house producer Byron The Aquarius with some jazz funk vibes scattered throughout. Really good stuff.

Loving the latest from these beautiful women.

and especially loving this small taste of Portico’s next one.

lots of beauty in these. lots of needed optimism :slight_smile:

I had my first proper listen to Old Man Of The Woods today and quite enjoyed it too. Will definitely give it a second listen (which a lot of these releases don’t end up getting due to the number of them!).

Really into this album. Didn’t realise it was this guy that did that Sophie And The Giants track. Solid fun.

Missed this came out yesterday, Houston rapper who is on a real upwards trajectory. His 2019 album was superb so got high hopes here. Tyler the Creator and Freddie Gibbs amongst the features.

Weekly round-up poll a little earlier than usual…

BADBADNOTGOOD, The World Is A Beautiful Place & I’m No Longer Afraid To Die and W. H. Lung topped our charts last week.

Only just spotted Bristol experimental hip hop collective had a new EP out last week!

Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention! I didn’t and still don’t understand odd time signatures and why I like them but this has helped massively in not understanding oddtime signatures as such but more why or not even why, just that I love them. Christ even this appreciation post has no time signature
