New Releases 24/03/23

My god, this Lankum album is amazing.


Yeah, just listening to it for the first time today and it’s incredible. Straight to the top of my best album of 2023 list.

Liking this a lot! Walked into a record store in Durham, NC on Friday morning and this was playing.

Turns out they are local to me… from Columbus. I had never heard of them before Friday.

Definitely FFO GBV, YLT, REM


Hello! My name is Mart Louis and here is my new single! Hope you like it. Thank you!

Thank you, Mart.





Everyone loving the Lankum album should very much check out the last one as well

(First two are also very good but don’t bring the drone quite as much as these last two)


Ireke - Tropikadelic

French tropicalia. It’s a grey day here in Sheffield but I can imagine coming back to this much more over the Summer, especially the opening track with Agnès Hélène’s vocals.

New Ada Rook (of Black Dresses) mini album, is a collection of unreleased so songs. Industrial noise pop


Good non-album track from the same period too (performed for a vote on Ireland’s greatest ever folk song):

27ish years later I still can’t believe there is a version of this with the Rolling Stones

Yeah I love that, they played it live when I last saw them, would love them to release it but it’s maybe a bit too ‘obvious’ for one of their albums. Stick it out as a single or a B-side at least though.

This is very good indeed. Thanks for the great description, really pulled me into trying it. The cover photo reminds me of Jamiroquai for what it’s worth

Edit: christ it’s actually a combo of these singles from the 1998 Godzilla film I was seeing

the live version of come with me that puff daddy did was actually amazing

Had this on in the car on the way home the other day and it did nothing for me. Headphones on today and it is a hypnotic delight

Finally listening now and enjoying it.

Impressed that they got Colin Newman from Wire to guest on it.

Also says the artwork is by Dave Konopka who used to be in Battles.

Unsurprisingly reminds me of LIDS featuring Edkins and the other guy from Holy Fuck

Deathcrash topped our poll last week with Yves Tumor second and Emiliana Torrini and Flyying Colours tied in third.

Scaring the hoes needs way way way more love


Sorry to confuse people, but the week of the 24th was pretty kind to me, hopefully there are a few in here ye missed…

Style King of the Week - Style King of the Week - LP - Trip Hop
Drums, Synths and Samples that hit that sweet spot for me; play it loud. Also Prophet & Nothing But! might just become my new ringtone, surely the biggest compliment for a band. =p

N NAO - L’eau et les r​ê​ves - LP - Alt Post-Pop?
Synth heavy shoegaze pop maybe, its a tricky one to describe but shouldn’t be missed. Reminds me of both Arcade Fire & Grandaddy. I loved every track that is over 2 minutes long.

Goldbloom - Peaked In High School - LP - Cosmic Jazz
Bass and Sax led Jazz from New York. Nice melody and tortured sax with simple light drum patterns; really nice.

Ulrich Drechsler - AZURE - LP - Cosmic Jazz
Techno Synth, rock drums and screaming sax from Austria.

Carmen Jaci - Happy Child - LP - Hyper Dream Pop
Absolute crazy fun and I loved it all. FFO Aphex Twin or Ruby My Dear

Parlor Walls - Little Palm - EP - Alt Punk
Tribal bounce with guitar angst and pure ‘I don’t give a sh!t’ lyrics. Only issue is 2 tracks is too little, looking forward to more.
