I picked up this Gendron record on vinyl after seeing her play in Montreal in 2014 – it’s absolutely gorgeous. Nice to see it getting wider attention nearly a decade after its release.
Jolie Laide - Jolie Laide
Jolie Laide is a collaboration between Nina Nastasia and Jeff MacLeod, this album their debut as a duo. The guitar and instrumentation feels like slow surf rock or maybe spaghetti western, and then there’s a weight to Nina Nastasia’s lyrics and vocals. Nine tracks and clocking in at just 28 minutes. I think this is great.
이민휘 Minhwi Lee - 미래의 고향 Hometown to Come
Korean folk singer-songwriter. This sounds really lovely, a real timeless quality timeless quality to this - some exquisitely orchestrated strings.
Spencer Zahn - Statues II
Elegant and reflective piano jazz, leaning towards fourth world ambient. Think it sounds really great.
Woah, just had a quick listen and this sounds cool! Looking forward to diving in tomorrow…
It’s really quite incredible imo! Strange and dense and esoteric, but at the same time, highly listenable and enjoyable and… fun! I had a proper eyes-closed headphones listen yesterday morning, and was completely blown away by it, just washed over me beautifully. Bought the digi on Bandcamp immediately. Massive rec on this one!
Absolutely nobody, anywhere talking about this album. Bonkers. It’s sensational. Space Afrika are incredible, made some incredible music over the last few years and the collaborators make it feel like a summation, or a moment in time, of where British music on the fringes is right now. Adore it.
I’m not normally into music of this ilk, but I’m enjoying this.
This could be shit or brilliant. Remember my cousin having this on LP years ago and some baffling choices made regarding the songs on it.
This post paid for by PROF$.
The vocoded vocals are letting this album down for me. Annoying as I really liked Honest Labour. Maybe I’ll start not hearing them but every song with that vocode effect grates.
yeah this is a good deep dive enjoying this a lot
I’m struggling with that as well tbh. There’s some lovely stuff on there though so hopefully I’ll get used to them
I’m the same. Really putting me off it. Gave up half way through the album.
Olivia Louvel - doggerLANDscape
Sound art. An experimental/ambient album and an accompanying video work based on Doggerland, the land that used to stretch between today’s coast of Britain and Europe, and the artist’s search for the remnants of the submerged forest of Doggerland on the Lincolnshire coast.
Our top 3 last week were John Francis Flynn, Aesop Rock and Beirut.
