Fanclub - Reflection

Following their much-posted debut single in September, Austin dream pop trio Fanclub share "Reflection"— an "instant earworm," says Highclouds, likening their sound to early Wild Nothing and Twin Sister with a twist of twee.

Tunde Olaniran - Vulnerable

Released earlier this month, the second album from Flint, MI-based multimedia artist and activist Tunde Olaniran is a wild and restless exploration of genre and identity, leaping between searing styles of R&B, rap, and experimental dance music.
Here's a dubbed-out, bass-driven disco cut from Milan-via-Santiago producer Paula Tape, courtesy of Montreal label SOBO. From her new 12” out next week, which features a flip from the imprint's co-founder Project Pablo (Stack №91).

Tasha - New Place

Chicago's Tasha (Stack №203) will soon release her Father/Daughter Records debut, a collection of breezy "bed songs." Her latest, recently topping Popular, "radiates with a genuine warmth and hope for the future," says Gorilla vs. Bear.

Pat Thomas - The Money Guys

Posted by 5 sites • On Bandcamp • Also on: SpotifyApple Music
The new LP from Cool Ghouls' Pat Thomas brings an eccentric, horn-backed flair to the psych-rock of his San Francisco band. Here he tackles economic inequality while "tucking into the AOR shimmer of the ‘70s," says Raven Sings the Blues.

A Decade Deeper, Mexican Summer's compilation featuring Ariel Pink, Arp, and more.

Paula Tape has a wealth of mixes on her SoundCloud, including archives from her radio show "Music For Plants" and this recent set on Parisian station Le Mellotron. Italo gems abound.

The Ringer examines the legacy of Enya’s “Orinoco Flow” 30 years later:

"It’s time to reclaim the song from the realm of cliché, of mocking irony, of easy, cheesy 'New Age' shorthand humor."

Thanks for listening!
