A fine entry in the "disfunctional norff lahndan pop" genre.
Eine kleine electrofunkgristle.
Ooo. Looky. Nice Fluke-esque thing here.
Of the many versions of Matthew E. White's Trump-baiting "No Future In Our Frontman" this is my fave.
The stoned cousin of "In Bloom".
In which I blow my own digital simulation of a trumpet.
Lo-fi, proggy, hippy, lush and discordant all at the same time.
This is apparently farm music. Haunting, beautiful farm music.
What an unbelievably sparse and splendid thing this is.
Jack and George from Southend-on-Sea would like to get into the soundtrack business.
I'm still not 100% sure why Fred Thomas isn't a global megastar - very few people write better pop songs*. Maybe this time, eh Fred?
"Takeda No Komoriuta" - Spirit Fest
Gentle Japanese occassional electric folk pop something something.
"Stop Him" - Honey Hahs
This is genuinely wonderful. Even if it does make me feel. So. Very. Old.
"Horseback" - Majetic
Noisy, melodic bleep madness from New York.
"Bellyache" - Yak
This would not have been out of place at the Haçienda.
"Disarray" - Low
It's difficult to think of a better word than "throbbing".
"Celia" - Cults
Putting the sinister into synthpop New Wave covers.
"Heavy Blue" - Rainstorm Brother
Part bigverb piano, part electrofolk noise, all lovely.
"If I'm Gone Tomorrow (It's Because of Aliens)" - MUNYA
Psychedelia-laced pre break-up space optimism.
"San' Yago" - Cave
Tasty Chicago Jam.
"Stay Awake" - Johnny Hostile
Scratchy warble electro swells, done gud.
"Taishi-Koto, Pt. 1" - L'Eclair
A not unpleasant amount of soundtrack-y organ.
"Steady State" - Rimarimba
Pulsing lo-fi guitar vs electronicalism and drones. From Felixstowe. Obviously.
"Deterritory" - Young Jesus
It's nice to know someone in LA still makes brainrock.
"In the Middle of the Night" - Still Corners
I mean, someone is probably going to have to write Pink Floyd a cheque at some point but that doesn't mean it's not glorious.
