And a new Melt Yourself Down album - haven’t heard anything by these guys for about four or five years but I remember skronky party jazz, no idea if that’s what they’re doing now but I’ll give it a go.
Have you seen the abomination of a cover? Wouldn’t want that in my house tbh
What a day!
Daniel Avery/Alessandro Cortini
Dirty Projectors EP
Then there’s also NIN and Sufjan releasing perfect working from home music earlier this week.
The Coriky album that was due today looks to have gone back till the end of April, which is a shame. I’ve got Waxahatchee and Daniel Avery lined up, plus the new Tamikrest album (Tuareg desert rock, like a punchier Tinariwen).
Description has piqued my interest. Enjoying this over breakfast with the silly baby
Waxahatchee. Been consistently good so expectations are high.
“Proper” debut lp by The Chats
Aussie teen thug punk
Most excited by Waxahatachee
Margaret Glaspy, Sorry and Half Waif for me, although there looks to be plenty of others that’ll be worth a listen too.
I’ve got 4 coming in the post today to backdrop my work for a while and I’m even here to receive them.
Daniel Avery & Alessandro Cortini
Lowell Brahms & Sufjan Stevens
Jacaszek - Music for Film
Somni - Home
New Dean Blunt… sort of.
One is a compilation of sorts from the last 7 years. The other is a 12 second loop, for an hour, which is a very Dean Blunt thing to do.
Compilation should at least be interesting…
Don’t know why - the Daniel Avery record has a physical release. I assume the physical copies will have been manufactured well before the current unpleasantness and you can still use the post. It’ll likely get worse of course as production plants and distributors close up.
Lots today. I swear bands release more good albums at the end of the month, just to make my end of month lists trickier to decide!
Clem Snide - first album from them in years. Americana nice sounds.
DakhaBrakha - Ukrainian ramshackley folly whaily kinda band. This will be different from all of the other releases today. Looking forward to diving in.
Dana Gavanaski - Canadian lady, slow melancholic songs.
Half Waif - as posted above by someone else. Her previous albums have been good, so fingers crossed for this.
Jacaszek - haunting atmospheric sounds I think. Loved their last album.
Margaret Glaspy - Spotify says fans also like Haley Heynderickx.
Nap Eyes - mentioned by someone else above. Can’t remember much about them at the moment, sounds a bit Americana’y.
San Fermin - this seems to be their last mini album with a new mini album tagged onto it. Catchy kind of ensemble band with various different singers.
Somni - can’t remember much about this chap. Maybe he’s a new discovery. Bleeps and blops possibly.
Sufjan also, although I just found it ok’ish earlier in the week.
Was really hoping As Long As Ropes Unravel Fake Rolex Will Travel would be on this, fucking love that song.
Haven’t heard it - need to catch up with Dean Blunt a bit. Will add that to today’s list too
Ooh, DakhaBrakha! Cheers for that, didn’t realise they had a new one out.
Maybe it’s different with CDs/vinyl but I work for a publisher and so far our UK and Italy printers have stayed open and even our China printers only stayed closed for a short time earlier in the year. But as I say, not sure how it works with music products.
New Basia Bulat out today!
Catholic Action and Ringo Deathstarr for me.
on top of those mentioned, I started off with some whiny emo in the form of The Wonder Years second acoustic reworkings, Burst and Decay ep, which was as you’d expect.
Currently very much nodding in agreement with the Spotlights ep.
Have Ringo Deathstarr got something new out?
