Peter Broderick - Piano Works Vol 1

Some very pretty solo piano/modern composition based on recordings from a book of sheet music he also published a few years ago.

Läuten der Seele - Die Mariengrotte als Trinkwasseraufbereitungsanlage
What a title! Two tracks, lasting twenty minutes each. I’m just going to quote what @octobadger posted/quoted about an earlier album of theirs this year:

German ambient folk puppeteer Christian Schoppik with a richly textured assemblage of deconstructed samples snipped from German 1950s movie music. Subtly nostalgic and crudely magical, it’s a rare observation of 20th century Deutsche cultural history coated in a thin film of hauntological dust. Think Basinski, Marsen Jules, or Wolfgang Voigt/Gas, merged with The Focus Group or Moon Wiring Club.

Les Big Byrd - Eternal Light Brigade
Swedish psychedelic indie rock.

Tim Linghaus - Yurusu
Nice little piano tunes.

Kaae & Batz - Helsinki Syndrome Original Soundtrack
Sleep Party People chap and someone else, instrumental soundtrack type affair.

Farewell Horizontal - “TALES OF WOAH”

“Tales of Woah”, the fourth album from Aussie lo-fi indie rock duo Farewell Horizontal, contains ten songs about existential crises, old computer games, cynicism, voyeur landlords, sellouts, having a cold in summer, the struggles of the DIY artist, and arseholes who live by the sea.

Has a song called “Don’t Give Up (Unless You’re Shit)”.

The Artist Is Irrelevant - Post-Pandemic Haze
Portuguese (I think) instrumentalist. Nice space-sounding synhty warm electronica.

Jemma Freeman and The Cosmic Something - Miffed

DIY punky indie rock (or “cosmonaut hauntologist rock trio” according to their press. Remind me a bit of No Doubt, but less slickly produced. Maybe it’s just that Jemma Freeman’s voice reminds me of Gwen Stefani’s. I like this, whatever it is.

On their second full-length album, Miffed, Jemma Freeman and the Cosmic Something drive further down into the eccentric, day-glo psych-punk of their debut, once again taking a maximalist approach to form and genre to create a record of searing, Led Zeppelin-like force.

Nice one. Had no idea they had a new one coming. Their first album was great

Roy Montgomery - Camera Melancholia

Haven’t heard it yet, but Boomkat describe it as:

“A sad but hopeful dedication to tr NZ legend’s long-term partner, who died in 2021. Partly made up of Montgomery’s customary shimmering guitar material and partly an elegiac, organ-led ode to the afterlife, it’s music that deals with loss in a surprisingly unique manner”.

No Windows - Fish Boy EP

Edinburgh teenage duo, hazy lo-fi shoegaze pop. Some early Youth Lagoon, some Elvis Depressedly, that sorta vibe - very promising

Acre Memos - A Collection Of Bird Songs
Sounds a bit like Phosphorescent. Has Lomelda guesting on four of the tracks. FFO: Phosphorescent and Lomelda.

Ok, this is lovely. Definitely going to be near the top end of my November top 5 list.

Wiki, MIKE, The Alchemist - One More

EP of MIKE and Wiki trading winding bars over classic Alchemist beats - soulful but punchy

Endtroducing…

Fievel Is Glauque - Flaming Swords - LP - Jazz Fusion
Jump all over the place fusion but where all the tracks are less than 3 min long. Talented and fun listen.

Basement Membrane - Punk Funk - LP - Funk
Up tempo funk, you can hear the smile on their faces playing this; really good fun.

ideism - object, subject - LP - Fusion Beats
Had this on in the background for the week, although the tracks are uptempo they are easy to work to and have enough going on to not get dull.
