A really delicious set of different musical directions again this week; plus plenty of Neil Young, which always goes down well in these parts.
Lots of new and lots of reissues, the early summer and beyond is looking stacked. Delighted to have WMC back and we've also all been floating along to some of the week's more ambient hues.
Working Men's Club
Pounding new Ross Orton produced LP from WMC. Includes a limited Translucent Pink Vinyl pressing.
Sixth studio LP from the always-essential Zola Jesus. Includes a limited ECO mix pressing.
Loma Vista Recordings
Loads of dreamy guitars and Daniel Lopatin (aka Oneohtrix Point Never)!!! on production duties.
Fascinating archive release from the German art concept duo, blurring a wild set of genres.
Multi-talented, multi-disciplinary artist Jay Crocker releases his third LP under the moniker JOYFULTALK. Loads of space, loads of texture and quite driving too.
Melt My Eyez See Your Future
Loma Vista Recordings
Smooth, vintage and nostalgic-sounding hip-hop from Denzel Curry with loads of guests. Digital is out now, LP (including Transparent Maroon Vinyl pressing) is September.
I Do Not Wish To Be Known As A Vandal
New LP from Sam Slater (Grammy and Oscar winning score producer of Chernobyl / Joker soundtracks amongst many others). A really stunning album and an utterly beautiful Dinked Edition.
Deluxe offering of Grammy® Best New Artist nominee Arooj Aftab’s breakthrough album Vulture Prince. The Brooklyn-based Pakistani vocalist, music composer, and producer is one of our most-watched ones-to-watch!
Navigations through serene and hypnotic spaces from the New Mexico artist. Really immersive, can't wait for this.
