What’s everyone listening to?
I’ve got the New Pagans album on now, pop-punk melodies with lyrics about sin, Yeats’ sister, and religious hypocrisy. Good stuff.
A.A. Williams has a cover album out today.
And this Dvne album which was mentioned in the heavy thread, will give it a go!
Middle Kids - Today We’re The Greatest (Indie pop)
Think it’s just Gazelle Twin / NYX’s new album for me today.
The Eccentronic Research Council - Dreamcatcher Tapes Volumes 1 & 2 for me.
This far out steel pan thing which I misleadingly posted a couple of weeks ago before it was actually out
Some gnawa psych
And other stuff I’ll be testing out based on cover art/hunches then reporting back on
I think I have a few albums I’ll post about in a bit, but just wanted to mention two singles.
First there is a long awaited new song by The More Shallows, and I totally love it. A lot more poppy/catchy than I was expecting. Hope you like it @static !
And Epic45 and Babybird have collaborated (again) on a song. No idea if there will be a joint album from them, but I’d quite like that if so!
Bell orchestre - house music
Post rocky classical stuff from Arcade Fire people on erased tapes.
Norman Fucking Rockwell was probably the best album of the last five or so years for me. Heard the new one about 1½ times through and it’s a continuation of NFR which I’m more than happy with.
Dark But Just A Game and Dance Till We Die are early highlights. Looking forward to repeated listens this weekend.
The Her soundtrack finally has a release today too! It’s a goodie.
Just finished listening through to this. I liked it but found it a bit hard going for this time of the morning! I don’t know NYX at all but am a fan of Gazelle Twin so I did have some idea what to expect at least!
There’s a Mono live-with-orchestra album I’ll check out today (although I’m not sure how much it will differ from their previous live-with-orchestra record)
Special Request for the latest DJ Kicks series - looking forward to this one:
New Benny The Butcher first today
Will definitely check out the Epic45 & Babybird track, didn’t realise they’d collaborated before will search that one out too
New William Doyle for me today (as well as Lana)
New Lana Del Rey is very good.
Also new Mint Julep (hazy dream pop) sounds really lovely.
Just finished this, really liked it. Good morning music.
Oh yeah, pre-ordered the LP last night, 14 yrs is a long time - parenthood needs a good indie album.
