Week 41 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.- Little Drum Darling Ocean. Thoughtful and quiet, charged and uplifting, emotional and full of heart – those are just some words that can be used to describe this upcoming release. Heartwarming at its core and surrounded with plentiful yet masterfully minimal instrumentation, this offers a great listening pleasure. Read on to learn more about “Darling Ocean” the EP and the artist!
2.- Nordic Hamster Eponymous Debut EP. “Nordic Hamster is injects vibrancy and energy into the instrumental metal genre. Their style feels refreshing and not saturated with the same cookie cutter formula of most outfits in the scene.” You can read our review here.
3.- Eddie Cohn Dystopian Days The songs that make up Dystopian Days brood a dark athmosphere that reflects the emotions of the lyrics, as the title may suggest. Disappointment, anger and impotence: Cohn creates a heavy, extremely dense, mood that allows the listener to discover something new with each repeat. Cohn’s saddened vocals express images of destruction, fire, injustice and cruelty as the dark synths loom in the background. You can read our review here
4.- Harboring Eponymous EP In his own words: “I was originally writing and recording for a school project but carried on with the project hoping to release it. For the writing, I was trying to capture the feeling of the house and the sound of my childhood.” You can read our review here.
5.- The Brothers Steve Dose is the somophore album by rock band from Los Angeles, California. Their energetic pop sound combines elements of British Invasion, indie rock and power pop. And two scant years after their debut album #1, they’re back with DOSE– a new album that’s every bit as beguiling and an even headier stew of pop-punk, psychedelia, glam and bubblegum.

6.- The Institues Colosseums “The INSTITUTES sound is an entrancing, textured amalgam of Byrdsian indie jangle and fuzzy “wall of sound” shoegaze, with an emphasis on melody & harmony, perfectly matched with candid, insightful, poetic lyrics.
The album takes its name from the legendary Coventry nightclub, The COLOSSEUM, inspired by the timeless capacity of such “COLOSSEUMS” in small towns and big cities everywhere, to create interactions which evolve into life changing experiences and events.”

7.- Jason Matu Same Day. Same Day, Matu’s upcoming EP, was written in one day’s time and later recorded in conjunction with frequent collaborator and Grammy-nominated producer Justin Craig (Hedwig and The Angry Inch) in the fall of 2020 at the producer’s Lower East Side studio. Jordan and Talor Steinberg of The Moon City Masters joined on bass and guitar with Justin holding down the rhythm on drums. The incomparable Matt Duncan (Hedwig and The Angry Inch) arranged and played glorious horns on “That’s Fine”.
8- Sleep Outside This Won’t Ever Last “Debut EP from Cardiff-London based alt-emo trio that centres around the emotions of life, work, and relationships, and presented in this genre blending new form of emo // alt rock. Featuring Singles ‘Skeleton’, ‘Spent’, and ‘Coffee & Tears’”
9.- Nora Lilith Daysof8 In her own words: “This EP to me feels like an assortment of sonic experiments and inner world reflections. I feel like the energetic range of these tracks is a direct outcome of the varying timelines these tracks were created on, some very old and some newer, and some written on the same day. Over all, these songs lyrically all share an element of malaise, while instrumentally express both a sanguine yet broody attitude. That juxtaposition feels connected to what I’ve mentioned in my bio; the symbol of Lilith and how it, to me, represents a regaining of strength in what would otherwise be considered darkness…
This project to me is a reflection of that journey of overcoming inner turmoil through curiosity and allowing the freedom to appreciate my creations and my being in the wake of fear.”
