Is that you, HOV? Get Kanye to finish that damn album!
Slowly Rolling Camera - Where the Streets Lead
Cinematic jazz grooves with a touch of trip-hop.
Leon Bridges - Gold-Diggers Sound
Smooth and soulful R&B
Wiliam Parker - Mayan Space Station
Wiliam Parker - Painters Winter
Two releases today as the prolific double bassist leads two trios on very distinct records; Mayan Space Station brings the electric guitar of Ava Mendoza to the fore, in a free jazz record that is equal parts spicy and spiritual, whilst Painters Winter is bass, horns and drum and is more a tribute to the flow of the seasons and of rhythm as melody and pulsation.
It’s there but not showing on the artist page - search “darkside spiral” and it shows up
Absolutely loved his debut. Probably my favourite uk rap album since Boy in Da Corner
Vic Spencer - Brainstem Factory
Chicago underground hip-hop
Top tip! Thank you, got it now! I guess it’s been tagged to the wrong artist.
The Altin Gun album’s out now. “Âlem is out! Our Bandcamp only album where all revenues go straight to Earth Today. Buy a song, protect at least 1m2 of nature. Help us to reach Earth Today’s main goal, protect at least 50% of nature worldwide.”
New Mol single today, ffo Deafheaven, Alcest, etc
Hopefully means an album soon
For your consideration
Check out Infinity Broke - good ol ramshackle garage rock and or roll. For fans of the Drones etc
Baba Sissoko - Griot Jazz
Can’'t find much info on this release but sounds like a pleasantly jaunty and jazzy ensemble of Malian musicians which works for me.
This new Dave album is special
Enjoying the new A Formal Horse album, Meat Mallet. Darker tones, less rock opera but still with cleverly constructed tracks and arguably a more marketable album. Gave it a first listen and nothing stood out as good as Unison 3 or Lonely Doe from the first LP but I suspect it will sink its hooks in on repeat listens, still a good campanion that would make for a great live set.
Its on Bandcamp, i’ve not worked out how to get the embedded mini player working yet, but this will do for now…
Meat Mallet by A Formal Horse
Upper Wilds - Venus
Space themed fast noise-pop from guitarist Dan Friel (Parts & Labor) and friends
Finished Mega Bog and put it straight on again, even though there’s a ton of stuff to listen to today. Big thumbs up from me
Yeah same here. It’s flipping great.
Great little 4 song EP from Samia, fell super hard for her debut last year and have had Show Up on repeat for the last couple of months.
Yeah it’s a banger. The single was a proper red herring
Pre-ordered the vinyl the other day. Got a lot of time for Vic Spencer.
Experimental, avant garde, ambient, drone,
this is great
