7 February 2017

Na then

Stef Chura - Slow Motion
DIY from Detroit and with more than a little of The Breeders to it. It's off the album Messes which came out at the back end of last month.

The Drain On The Balcony - Happy Thinking
Out on Bristol's Local Underground label comes this from the LP The Golden Hour Of The Drain On The Balcony, released early January.

Deadwall - Heartlands
A new one from one of our favourites, Leeds four-piece Deadwall. They are seriously good.

Featured album: Sweet Benfica - Betamax Daydream
Betamax Daydream
Heathers
More DIY for our featured LP this week, from show favourites, two brothers from Wales. The album came out early in January and follows a pattern set down with previous releases. It's really very good.

The Frightnrs - All My Tears
Proper reggae now from Queens in New York. Despite it's very old-school feel, this is off their debut LP, Nothing More To Say, which came out last autumn.

Talisman - Relijan
More reggae, this time from four-decade veterans Talisman from Bristol. The new album is Don't Play With Fyah and it's great. I'm sure there are lots more tracks we'll be playing from this in the coming weeks.

Moon Duo - Cold Fear
Portland psych-rockers return with another LP, Occult Architecture volume 1. That's out in March, very much the concept album and will be followed by a complementary piece.

Lady Wray - Do It Again
What a voice. Virginia's Nicole Wray has her first LP for some time out now, Queen Alone. Proper good soul.

Sky Between Leaves - OBE (Out Of Body Experience)
They're a London-based alt/krautrock ensemble and this is off the EP Klein Blues which came out in October.

Featured album: Sweet Benfica - Betamax Daydream
Last Night I Googled My House
And I'm a sucker for a good title. And they don't get a lot better than this. Good guys, good music. Go get it.

Dusty Mush - Faux Sabotage
Making noise in a dirty attic in Ile de France are Dusty Mush, aka producer C├ędric Bottachia. This was released as a single last November.

DJ Marcelle - To The Right
Marcelle is from Amsterdam and something of a pioneer of modern electronica and trance. This is off the EP In The Wrong Direction. Terrific.

Whirling Hall Of Knives - MMXVIRIP
This is an Irish collaboration between The Last Sound and Magnetize. The track came out on New Year's Eve, and obviously the title is saying ta-ra to 2016. A suitable place to finish this edition.

And that'll do us for this week. It would transpire that I'm not in for the next two weeks, so see thee in a while.
