What a stacked Friday this week. My highlights:
Helena Deland - Someone New
Looking to this the most. Loved all her EPs from two years ago which had that perfect mix of pop and folk for me and her voice is so angelic.
Kevin Morby - Sundowner
I liked Oh My God but stripped down Morby is the best Morby.
Holy Motors - Horse
Dreamy americana vibes.
Will also listen to Matt Berninger.
Good sad happy bad
Triple release day for Disintegration State as we go cassette happy! For various reasons (combination of our distributor agreement and pure incompetence), all but FLVZ (which is there today) will be coming out on streaming at a later date.
Veins Full of Static aka @colossalhorse
FLVZ / Steve Hadfield
Split of dreamy electronics and nightmare glitch
Autoflag aka @andyvine
New Kev Morby is superb! Especially this tune
Think only Oliver Coates is on my list today.
Open Mike Eagle doing his thoughtful rapping
All about Autechre for me. Looking forward to my copy arriving.
There’s a new Hayden Thorpe (ex Wild Beasts) EP out today, I quite liked Diviner so will give that a listen.
Osees have another album out today (well it’s five tracks so an EP?).
William Elliott Whitmore has an album out too if you’re in to banjo slinging beardos.
Tomberlin- Projections EP
All the Dis stuff
Bunch of other ambient/modern comp.
Gulfer - 3rd album - loved god bless from 2018 and been looking forward to this one - Canadain lofi math, indie, emo type stuff somewhere between sunny day real estate and ovlov - maybe?
Some new Oliver Coates.
Cello + electronic doo dahs = well we’ll have to see.
Sturgill Simpson - Cuttin’ the Grass
Acoustic (bluegrass?) renditions of highlights from his back catalogue. Been really getting into him lately and he’s a great writer, so I look forward to seeing how his songs reveal themselves in this form. First release since breaking with his label.
Dude from the roots
Dublin singer/songwriter - produced by dan fox of girlband
for fans of prince (?)
droney/instrumental/songwriter - bit of a mish mash but worth a listen
Ethereal folky stuff
nice female pop
Cool Norwegion pop
Bizzare Glitchcore stuff (may be of interest to some (but not me))
Montreal singer/songwriter (worth a listen)
dead cool this
I like expect this will be rootin tootin. He’s doing some Sunday Valley songs too, if you haven’t already then check out some of their live sessions in barns and stuff on YouTube to see Sturg doing some country shredding
The expanded edition of Tom Petty’s Wildflowers is out today
there’s a new tomberlin EP out
Will give autechre and tomberlin a go, and maybe this holy motors
I really enjoyed this on first listen.
