I’ve been feeling ill all week but i’m on the mend in celebration of this here is a round-up of all the stuff I’ve wanted to post.
First Locust-Strobes, y’all are going to have to understand that my descriptions of electronic music aren’t great. This track is for me paranoid, claustrophobic and exhilarating. It is haunting and unsettling, like Burial, a very intriguing if not entirely comfortable listen.
Next Luca offer up a slice of breezy indie/post punk with Summer. Lovely melodies, straightforward guitars and earthy bass combine with gravelly vocals to make a tune that deserves a few plays to coax you out of bed.
Next Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds because Push The Sky Away, has completely reignited my love affair with the band and could well be one of my albums of the year. We No Who U R is a beautiful, unexpected track.
Finally Laurel Canyons with Youth Blood, because on the day your friend turns 23 you really need a song that makes you feel like your still young. Big, anthemic chorus and jangling guitars are just the ticket for self-deception.
