As per the parameters of London label Speedy Wunderground, the new single from Tiña was recorded in a single-day session with producer Dan Carey. Clash Magazine
calls it a mix of "wiry post-punk thrills" and psych-pop reminiscent of Wand and Ty Segall.
LA's own Jansport J has been prolific lately, releasing a new beat tape each month since December. The title track to his latest offers "bright, richly layered soul bolstered by crisp percussion and twinkling keys," says Bandcamp Daily
The solo debut from Pavo Pavo's Eliza Bagg as Lisel (out soon on Luminelle Recordings) finds the multi-instrumentalist centering compositions around her voice. Here, it "swells and modulates," says Highclouds
; "more angel than alien," above airy synths.
Last week, The Internet's Steve Lacy (Stack №129
) dropped Apollo XXI
, building off the promise of his lo-fi pop demos in 2017. Pitchfork
calls this 9-minute, shapeshifting suite "a proper introduction to Lacy's ambitions, anxieties, and identity."
The collaborative project of Luke Slater, Steve Bicknell, and David Summer (aka Function) launches a new self-titled LSD imprint. Their first entry is a "six-track double pack of propulsive, lysergic techno," says FACT
Beatsmith Jansport J joins DJ Mza's Soul Circle Radio show for a 2-hour block of old-school hip-hop and R&B.
Pitchfork gives a big picture overview of the music industry's financial viability:
"The Music Industry Research Association’s survey of working musicians suggests that streaming will have a long way to go before most artists can rely on it to pay the bills."
Thanks for listening!
