Week 31 2021 Hi y’all here I’m with another round of 9 Albums/EPs you should listen to released all of them recently (if you want you can take a look to our previous week here).
1.- Dale self-title debut EP “The EP as a whole is about using escapism and love as a way of processing the day to day woes of a working-class person, and the joy that can create. Five songs are linked through a day in the life of a story told through recordings of a trip to the sea.” Keep reading our review here.
2.- 9 o’clock Nasty Growl “I’ve encountered with a quite interesting work by this British band. A three piece EP of alt-art garage music. I didn’t even know that existed! But it does, and, well, it’s something to appreciate closely…” Keep reading our review here.
3.- The Bad Egg A Night In Gale The EP starts with “Nightingale“, a melancholic dark song with rain and thunder at the beginning that suddenly turns into a powerful rock song, only to go back to the slow, vibrant motion of the dark. Mystifying! Keep reading our review here.
4- Stingray Fever Elevator to the Moon “ is an epic, free-flowing 70s-style concept album that pays homage to the cosmic scope of prog while favouring memorable riffs and killer melodies rather than extended jams. Charting the mental collapse of an overenthusiastic pleasure seeker, Elevator to the Moon is gleefully unabashed in its expansive cinematic intent and its array of experimental touches that range from Icelandic poetry to in-studio scream therapy”.
6.- Saturnine Sighs Self-titled debut album in their own words: “Our self-titled debut album has been in the works since 2018. When we began, we honestly had no idea what we were doing. But through blood, sweat, and tears, we painstakingly put together something we could be proud of, learning along the way.”
7.- Vassilis Return To Innocence In his own words: “With influences ranging from indie folk to alternative rock to dream pop, my sound can perhaps be described as a blend of guitar-driven pop music distinguished by melodic elements, such as vocal harmonies, atmospheric keys and reverberating guitars”
8.- Anna Hester Postcard Songs Debut Album “Every song on the album is inspired by a postcard: by the images, messages, and people and places they come from. There are songs about Glasgow, Vienna, Lisbon, and Berlin, and songs about friends, family members, and fellow artists.”
9.- Adar Alfandari Gold Dust Debut Album in his own words: “Like most debut albums, it includes songs I wrote a while ago, together with more recent ones. The album is quite versatile and includes folk, blues-rock, Indie, and Alternative rock songs, two short instrumentals, and several songs in Hebrew.”
This week a bonus
10.-Micko Roche Sióg “The EP is a collection of five tracks, which includes four reworks or indeed interpretations of the EP’s title track. The concept comes from a piece of music entitled The Dance of the Fairy which Micko composed for a contemporary dance adaptation of a children’s book. Each piece on the EP represents a life stage of the mythical creature.
