Airy indie pop from Bernice, their last album was great so I’ve high hopes for this
New of Montreal, think they’ve been on a decent streak lately but could go anywhere really
Jogging House - Flaws
@ghosthalo - cielo 1.
Ah yeah the first half of the last OM album was good. Fuck 20 songs though
Happy Kings of Leon day guys
This is where I am going to start the day.
“On Hold is a series of 10 pieces derived entirely from call waiting music. Recorded through the phone and manipulated to achieve a wider enveloping soundscape to both ease and inspire, to be placed on hold is to lose a sense of power and control.”
Ghanaian/Australian odd ball neo-soul/rap artist Genesis Owusu releases his debut today. Really liked the singles. A flick through the album seems like it’s a real genre/genre-less grab bag, touching on R&B, funk, indie rock, post-punk and many other things in-between.
Alex Bleeker (of Real Estate) solo album.
Seems funny to me that long-time solo artist Andrew Bird waited until a pandemic where we shouldn’t see others to release an album in collaboration with another
Slight JAG cos I play in her live band when she isn’t doing backing track sets in normal times! I had nothing to do with the EP beyond introducing her to the producer Erin when we were both in New York together a few years back. Sounds great, have a listen!
Need something calming? Try any of these first three:
Neil Cowley - Hall of Mirrors
Ambient/electronic/neo-classical pianoled pieces, a debut solo album though had a number of records as the Neil Cowley Trio.
- Field Works - Cedars
Cedars combines cosmic Americana with Western ambient and Middle Eastern influences. Delicate layers of pedal steel, banjo, oud, and hurdy-gurdy ﬂoat atop looping guitar drones to create a soothing, atmospheric chamber where folk and electronic music coalesce. Set to Arabic and English poetry, the song cycle examines some of Earth’s most iconic and ancient forests, revealing our complicated relationship with the natural world
Roetger Hoedemaekers - The Age of Oddities
Modern classical album which is partly a eulogy to the soundtrack composer’s late collaborator Jóhann Jóhannsson.
Not looking for calm? Check these out after Arab Strap:
Tobacco - Fucked Up Friends 3
Sick electronic beats
Norf Face - Norf Face
Grime collective of JME, Capo, Shorty and Frisco combine for a short album
Main thing I’m listening to is the vinyl of the Divide/Dissolve album that arrived this week. What a superb record.
Smirk - LP
brute garage punk experimentalism
The Stools - Feelin’ Fine (EP)
bluesy punk trio from Detroit
New Wolvennest! 2018’s debut was a fascinating, rather uncategorisable foray into psychedelia, post black metal and dark ambience. Looking forward to diving into this later!
So much to digest today and there will be a Music League playlist dropping later. It’s all a little overwhelming!
the main reason I’ve decided to drop out of the second league. i just can’t devote the time required at the moment.
One of them or Soccer Mommy should change their name imo
They really both should.
Also they should be made to change the ‘o’ in Mom(my) to a ‘u’ for UK releases/tours.
