Was convinced that @mouth_breather had done a wrong description of SASAMI, then I was convinced that maybe there were two SASAMI’s after that first track. Will need to have a proper listen to see if the heavier direction is for me! Will also be listening to the Caroline, BAMBARA, and Sevdaliza releases. and Park Jiha too. and these lot below. busy day!
Keeley Forsyth - Limbs
Most likely some more haunting kind of songs.
Emily Wells - Regards To The End
An amazing one woman band looping and performing everything herself when she plays live.
The album has a “deliberate strata of vocals, synths, drums, piano, string instruments (violin, cello, bass), and wind instruments (clarinet, flute, French horn). The music is numinous in part because the listening experience is a resoundingly bodied one. Life - unsanitary, beautiful, persistent, brief - swells inside of every note.”
Black Sea Dahu - I Am My Mother
Swiss band making ‘mysterious and aesthetic indie folk’, now with added strings and orchestration. Sounds like an improvement upon their previous album, and surprisingly one of the albums I might listen to pretty early on today.
Federico Albanese - Before And Now Seems Infinite
Italian composer, influenced by soul, jazz, electronic, modern and contemporary classical music. Has Maricka Hackman and Ghostpoet singing on a track each.
Basia Bulat - The Garden
Three-time Polaris Music Prize finalist. “a new album that reimagines songs across her five studio albums with stunning classical string quartet arrangements by Owen Pallett, Paul Frith, and Zou Zou Robidoux”
King Hannah - I’m Not Sorry, I Was Just Being Me
Liverpool duo with their debut album released on City Slang. apparently making music ‘that lives somewhere between the gorgeously meditative pop of Yo La Tengo, and the beautiful drama of Sharon Van Etten, the latter of which gave them a cosign for their 2020 EP’.
DakhaBrakha/Bedouin - The Bedouin Reworks Of DakhaBrakha
Four remixes/reworks of DakhaBrakha songs. I love DakhaBrakha, and I felt so happy/lucky to see them play live last month with their beautiful strange Ukranian sounds. They were due to have a tour in America next month, which they’ve just announced won’t go ahead for obvious reasons.
GENTS - Souvenir
Danish synthy-pop duo.
Ida Wenoe & Samantha Whates - Turn EP
Nice little duety acoustic EP.
