What you got going on?
Wye Oak EP
Dead good this - likes to call himself baroque pop
and the best album title award goes to…
nice singer/songwriter from Oakland
New Fountains DC
Actually sounds pretty decent this
glitchy instrumental stuff
Rival Consoles has a new one today. Really nice Electronica for the early hours. If you liked Night Melody by him then this should be up your street. Also, reminded me in parts of Floating Points album from last year.
Land of Talk
this is pretty beautiful
straightforward indie with an unfortunate name
bit pop but quite nice
over the top pop/rock
cool credible female fronted indie folk
australian power pop
beautiful highlight this
Have fun folks x
Didnt know about this, cheers!
Ooohh nice. Persona is my go-to album to put on when I want something good and not too distracting to work to
Had a listen to the new Fontaines last night before bed. Already prefer it to the debut - which I found distracting but ultimately disjointed and brash (mainly in the production).
This sounds like a cohesive album - both in theme and sound - and there isn’t a song out of place in the tracklist. Some songs popped out more than others but I’m really happy with this direction. Looking forward to another listen.
Erlend Øye has a new album out
Ohh missed this!! amazing
Bill Callahan single/EP
Will listen to the new Creeper because I’m low key goth and they’re a local GBOL but didn’t love the singles.
I don’t actually know anything about this but its popped up - seems to be from the 60s (anyone?)
Land of Talk innit.
Lovely album on first full listen, but there is a part of me that wishes I hadn’t already heard 5 of the tracks as singles. I get it because of the delayed release and the weird circumstances of releasing records at the moment, but it always makes the first few album listens feel a bit unbalanced.
I will be listening to this
They did this with the last album, had four singles out before it was released. Fortunately they were great and so was the album.
fans of vashti bunyan
For fans of folky stuff. Great lazy, summer feel. Kurt Vile plays on it.
Will listen to Daniel Blumberg, Fontaines, Madeline Kenney, Wye Oak as well. Packed week.
Aye. I think it’s my problem tbh, I way overlistened to the singles and so it makes the album experience a bit weird at first. Rest of the record sounds bloody lovely though eh
