So this Richard Dawson guy is pretty damn good then eh?

I didn’t know what I wanted to listen to today (tons going on in my head at the min), but this is somehow exactly it.

Folkyish atmospheric singer songwriter stuff from Ireland:

Low key autumnal/wintery stuff. Some field recordings, some strings, etc. If anyone remembers Benni Hemm Hemm, he’s involved:

The usual glut of Hip-Hop/Rap releases…

Brockhampton - The Family & TM

Family was supposed to be the last Brockhampton album, but they just dropped TM as a surprise so who knows.

Juga-Naut - Time & Place

Latest from one of my faves, looking forward to this. UK rapper & producer expect beats laced with groove & soul samples & a smooth flow.

will definitely get Weyes Blood and Phoebe Bridgers on later. Just got Neil Young’s new one on. Ok I guess, but they seem to have retired the big Crazy Horse 20 minute epic, all short tunes recently,

Woah, hold up, ‘Chevrolet’ is 14 mins long.

The two singles off it are possibly the best thing they’ve ever done.

Cheick Tidiane Seck - Kelena Fôly

This is beautiful.

Hermon Mehari - Asmara

Eritrean-American trumpeter with an album of Eritrean folk influenced jazz. Also sounds lovely.

Adrian Quesada - Jaguar Sound

Second album of the year from the Black Pumas founder, this one “head-nodding, cinematic instrumentals landing somewhere between Khruangbin, Lee Hazlewood and The Alchemist”.

Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross - Bones & All

Nine Inch Nails fellas score a film where Timothee Chalamet’s a cannibal.

Pulse Emitter - Dusk

Modular synth for fans of M Geddes Gengras, Fennesz, etc. Really enjoyed their last album Swirlings from 2020.

Really enjoying it. It’s a bit like eating an entire bag of Tangfastics in one go though. Obviously you’re not going to have it for every meal but as a treat it’s a nice fizzy, giddy buzz.

This and Calexico’s “Seasonal Shift” album from a couple of years ago will make a great tequila christmas double header.
