Wovoka Gentle tease their debut album with the latest instalment – Tell ‘Em, Makoto! A gloriously unorthodox folk song from a band who allow their creativity to spill across musical boundaries with sheer theatricality.
The Comet Is Coming – Unity
Fresh from the intergalactic mystery of The Comet Is Coming’s second album, Unity finally allows you to catch your breath and appreciate the brilliance of this other-worldly jazz.
The Japanese House – somethingfartoogoodtofeel
Fresh from her recently released debut album Good at Falling, somethingfartoogoodtofeel captures the sheer genre-spanning intrigue of The Japanese House’s music and is nothing short of symphonic.
Barrie – Canyons
Dreamy art-pop and hypnotic grooves from Brooklyn based five piece Barrie as they prepare for the release of debut album Happy To Be Here.
Bill Laurance – HAL
A visceral analysis on the relationship between organic piano and inorganic synthesis, HAL sees Bill Laurance pivot on his jazz and classical influences once again.
Wild Nothing – Blue Wings
Awash with the chime of chorus and saturated with indie nostalgia, Blue Wings is a bittersweet instalment following Wild Nothing’s 2018 album Indigo.
Delta Sleep – Dotwork
From their latest album Ghost City, Dotwork is awash with peppy technicality from the Brighton based band that write and perform with sheer creativity and flair.
Yumi Zouma – Persephone
To start a new year, I delve back into an album released just over a year ago from electro-pop ex-pats Yumi Zouma. Persephone is the sort of wide eyed songwriting that can’t help but feel hopeful and spacious. Wonderfully dreamy, and with just the right amount of groove.
Vulfpeck – Disco Ulysses
From the ridiculously tight rhythm section that is Vulfpeck, I’ve been listening to Disco Ulysses (Instrumental).
Ruby Haunt – A Quiet Evening
Understated and chillingly beautiful, Ruby Haunt’s A Quiet Evening blends distant vocals with layers of colourful synthesis.
