Aluminum - Everything

Posted by 4 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
San Francisco band Aluminum released their debut LP last week on Felte. Rosy Overdrive is "impressed with their ability to whip up both Stereolab-eque motorik indie rock and wall-of-sound shoegaze in short order."

Posted by 1 site • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
The debut album from actor/director Samantha Morton and XL Recordings boss Richard Russell arrives next month. "A multisensory, minimalistic sonic universe," per Twistedsoul, it features contributions from Alabaster DePlume (Stack №270), Laura Groves, Jack Peñate, and Ali Campbell (UB40).

Posted by 6 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify

BFTT - Horsin' Around!

Posted by 1 site • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
The aptly titled new EP from Manchester DJ and YCO label cofounder BFTT fuses elements of noise and dance music. "These are face-melting, weirdo bangers suited for upping the energy as the night enters the wee hours," says Resident Advisor. "Horsin' Around is like a nervous breakdown you find yourself wanting to relive, long after you've sweated it out."

Arushi Jain - Imagine An Orchestra

Posted by 4 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
Delhi-born, New York City-based composer Arushi Jain (Stack №332) returns to Leaving Records with Delight, "a set of pieces that merge modular synthesis with Hindustani classical music," per Pitchfork. "These compositions represent Jain at her most vibrant, coaxing a cornucopia of sounds out of a single raga."

ezmeralda - El amor eficaz

Posted by 3 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: Spotify
For his new album, Ruido y Flor, Colombian producer Ezmeralda "approaches the ups and downs of the afterlife with a sense of open-hearted wonder," says Bandcamp. "A rumination on what happens after death, the record is centered on aqueous white noise and pearly synths." It's out on TraTraTrax sub-label Ambie Tón.
Arushi Jain presents her flight-inspired Crack Mix: “The undulations in air pressure, bass drone of the engine, and dizzying distance from earth encourages external waves of emotion. In between now and when I’m back on land, I have an opportunity to release, and ready myself to be replenished. These moments are delicate, not unlike the music I chose for this mix.”

For NPR, Meaghan Garvey on how Cindy Lee became the music world's underground success story of 2024.

"In an era dominated by fan service, you could almost forget that it's personal."
