Looking forward to hearing the Lizzo record but slightly irked by the lack of a physical release.

Going to give the new Wand album a go in a minute. Seems to have very mixed reviews.

There’s a new Self Defence Family ep.


the new Field Medic record fade into the dawn is out today. Lo-fi singer songwriter signed to Run For Cover. It’s got a wonky alt country/americana feel to it with glitchy electronic elements. FFO Rhett Miller, John K Samson

Jay-Jay Johanson has a new album out. He’s Swedish and begins with a J and has a deep crooning voice so j always associate him with Jen’s Lekman.

Tune-Yards appear to have an album out, as a soundtrack to a film. The one song I’ve listened to was very good.

Some EP by a band called Eyre Llew is also on my Spotify release radar, but I forget who they are. Sounds Sigur Ros-esque.

An album by someone called Warming. They’re on my Great Escape list of bands to check out/maybe see. Seems catchy enough stuff.

The album is amazing, the ep is too much of a Sigur Ros clone.

All about Kelsey Lu for me today.


All about the Fat Whites for me today.

oh…and The Tallest Man On Earth has his new one out, for those not familiar he is a Swedish singer songwriter heavily indebted to Dylan. His music is bloody lovely. Not heard the new one but have high hopes


sorry just noticed you mentioned The Tallest Man On Earth already


Not much to add, but Scottish band L-Space are worth a try and there’s a Gang of Four record out too. Anyone who likes Calypso stuff might want to check out a new Mighty Sparrow compilation!

Mostly looking forward to Loyle Carner today.

Listening to the Lizzo album, like the homage to Creep on Jerome! It’s all great so far though

Kelsey Lu - Blood

as I posted in the other thread;

the new album ‘Blood’ is sublime, huge and drifting, intimate & precise

There’s one incongruous track on it though, a sort of disco pastiche that sounds like an over-produced Donna Summer track and really doesn’t fit among the fine strings & dulcimers of the rest of the album.
Listening closely to the lyrics though it would seem that this track is a kind of fuck you to being asked by the label/her a&r/manager to produce a radio friendly pop hit single. The track’s called Poor Fake and there’s a spoken word bit where she says

As I stare into its frame, slowly approaching
At first glance, this is the finest painting I’ve ever laid eyes on
As they all say, it truly is one of a kind
I lift my magnifying glass to its smooth lines
Taking a closer look, inspection is key
What do we have here? Could this be a forgery?

and the chorus

Is this real or just a poor fake?
Is this real or just a poor fake?

I absolutely love this woman
