track this week belongs to Brighton-based jangle-pop band Beachtape, taken from their new EP out next month on CRC Records. "Consider it a shoe-in on your next playlist if you love Pavement," says Consequence of Sound
Rory Ferreira (formerly milo
) releases a new album via Ruby Yacht, the label he runs out of a record store in Maine. Per BrooklynVegan
, Ferreira's verses "vary between the unconventional flow and tongue-twisting lyricism," with productions spanning "far-out psychedelia, real-deal jazz, and eerie atmospheric instrumentals."
In a profile at Bandcamp Daily
, the founder of Hong Kong's Neoncity Records details how he grew his label from a bedroom to what BC calls "the epicenter of future funk." As evidenced by celebratory tracks like this one from Tanuki, he says the collective focus is simply "releasing music that makes people happy."
Talk of UK post-punk outfit Porridge Radio has picked up with each single that emerges from their second album, out today on Secretly Canadian. Citing their "dreamy softness and scratchy noise," For The Rabbits
says to "believe the hype, this lot are going to soar."
The debut LP from acclaimed producer Angus Finlayson, aka Minor Science, explores his interest in how our minds translate second languages, often modifying original meanings. He mirrors the dynamic with a fusion of off-kilter techno, electronica, modal jazz, and musique concrete. It's out on Whities (Leif, Avalon Emerson).
British producer and DJ Minor Science delivers a Crack Mix "charged with fractious energy, forks in the road and what’s technically referred to as lose-your-shit moments."
For Rolling Stone, Samantha Hissong and Ethan Millman look into the projected losses of the concert business from the coronavirus:
"With the live music business relying so heavily on attendees spending discretionary income on shows, a downturn will more heavily impact live music than industries offering essentials."
Thanks for listening!
