END 2017
Charlotte Gainsbourg
Rest
Brilliant debut album from someone with some big shoes to fill. (Nov '17)
The Weather Station
The Weather Station
We love "Thirty", a song by Tamara Lindemanís The Weather Station on their 2017 self-titled (but certainly not their first, but perhaps their best) release. Pitchfork gets it right by calling this song "an immediate stunner". We thought it would be hard for them to top 2016's "Way It Is, Way It Should Be" off Loyality, but this may actually be a little better. (Oct '17)
MID 2017
Flunk
Chemistry and Math
We love the music and voices of Flunk. Good to see them still at it with this new release. (Sept '17)
Myrkur
Mareridt
Nordic traditional songs meet black metal. (Sept '17)
Start 2017
Beach Fossils
Somersault
Beach House, Beach Fossils ... we're getting mixed up with all these indie bands with beach in their title ... until we played "Sugar" and "Be Nothing" off this one. Killer songs. (June '17)
Moonlandingz
Interplanetary Class Classics
Electronic rocking anthems (Vessels, The Rabies Are Back, Glory Hole) sprinkled with space age love ballads (The Strangle of Anna), space-age spaghetti westerns (Theme from Valhalla Dale). (Mar '17)
