Oooh, it’s Friday! And November is almost done.
As always, the Board proved me wrong last week - pickings were more than just slim. Thanks to all for some great recommendations.
Now, this week really is thin (unless, I suppose you like the “darling of the Boards” own SP, who have CYR out, as if you didn’t know). Beyond that, I have just two on my listening list, one album, one EP, so help me out folks because, you know, how do I get through an entire week of lockdown with just one hour or so of new music to rotate through (as if that’s going to happen, with all those other wonderful threads - including of course dear @BMS1’s “DIS Users’ November 2020 Album of the Month” thread which is already up and out there (so get yo’ ass over there and vote), to scroll through).
Anyway, here’s my two for the community:
Brighton’s own Laundromat - Green EP
Listening to this now and it jogs along quite nicely. Description: twitchy melodic lo-fi, ffo BBC 6 Music playlists? Yeah, I am through it now. It’ll get a few more spins this week - just 3 tracks - but I ain’t blown away.
Ane Brun - How Beauty Holds the Hand of Sorrow:
Norway’s Ane will be next up for me. [Just starting now; very nice opening, spare piano and Ane’s usual captivating vocals]. This is a companion piece to last month’s (!?) After the Great Storm but perhaps more familiar in style to Ane’s earlier albums. I’m liking it so far. FFO - icy Norwegian camlness (much needed in these oh turbulent times, oh yes).
And at the moment the Pumpkins’ CYR ain’t on Spotify for me, so no link (but, you know, I am pretty sure you will find that if you want to).
With that, over to the Board …
