The National for me Clive.
Also Tim Hecker Anonyo
Carly Rae Jepsen
Genuinely struggling to decide whether to listen to Carly Rae Jepsen or The National first on my walk into work
Spencer Radcliffe - Hot Spring Almost through my first listen of this and it’s even better than I hoped. Really laid back alt-country, signed to Run For Cover.
For me clive
Or just meet in the middle and listen to Alex Lahey
Pop or indie ooooor power pop indie
Do you want to start your day with a spring in your step or by feeling glum?
Possibly falling into a trap here, but The National’s music has never made me feel glum. “Depressing” bands like Radiohead, The National, Nine Inch Nails, etc. have always made me feel better than worse
New EP by Interpol as well. But The National is first up for me.
Not feeling the new national album tbh
Other stuff I’ll be trying includes the Erland Cooper album (ambient washes) and Black Peaches (psych funk maybe).
New Ivor Cutler EP for some absurdist lols this morning
TYLER THE CREATOR
Would really urge people who haven’t heard him since Flower Boy to give this a try. All the shock rap stuff is behind him. Damn, maybe even rap itself is behind him. It sounds phenomenal on first listen - a concept album about love and loss that has to be some of the best production of the year.
Operators for me
plus National, Interpol, Com truise
EPs for me today!
Com Truise and Kelly Moran respectively.
Also: it came out about a month ago, but seeing as no one has mentioned it yet, I can definitely recommend the new Minotaur Shock album to anyone who loves a bit of early Warp-like bleepy bloops.
Rich Aucoin. I saw him at The Great Escape festival twice, and he was super fun in a Dan Deacon way. Looking forward to the album.
Yeah, it’s insane how much he has grown. On track five and agree this is amazing, I love the segueing between tracks.
Currently listening to the new EP by Keep Shelley In Athens. It’s pretty good.
I’ve also got The Ballet and Injury Reserve lined up for listening today.
I’ll give the Carly Rae Jepsen over the weekend. Can’t be bothered with The National.
