Car Seat Headrest
Belle and Sebastian ep compilation
Laurie Anderson & Kronos Quartet
Everything Is Recorded (Richard Russell)
There’s also a Dita Von Teese lp out this week. She’s teamed up with Sébastien Tellier. How nice.
Early albums are lo-fi and weird, full of loops and experimentalism, gradually moves further into well produced pop as she goes on. Half Free is the peak so far for me, new one is also very enjoyable but not quite as interesting
I got the vinyl as a pre-order a week early, and have been playing the album pretty much constantly since then. She has such a lovely voice, and anyone should love her if they’re a fan of Owen Pallett at all. Pretty certain it’s going to be my favourite album of February.
Here’s a (long) live version of one of my favourite songs from her new album:
I’ll be checking out The Orielles, Car Seat Headrest and I’m With Her (for my folksy Americana fix), but it’s reissues that’ll probably get my money later. The Songs: Ohia EP and the expanded first Preston School of Industry album are the two I’ll be after.
Goddamn that’s a lot of new music! No way I’m going to get through all that today. Going to have to prioritise. Superchunk and Ought at the top of the list, I reckon. Intrigued by that Hannah Epperson mentioned above, so she goes next. The rest out of U.S. Girls, Orielles, Walter Martin, Wild Beasts, CSH and B&S are all up for grabs.
Waiting for someone to pipe up with something a bit less “indie rock” as well.
