Week 46 2021 Hi y’all the end of the year is coming real fast don’t you think? Well let’s go an take look at another round of 9 Albums/EPs you should listen to , released all of them recently and it’s a really good one as usual if you indulge me (remember that you always can take a look back at our previous week recommendations here).
1.- Elly Kace Nothing I See Means Anything. When I heard “I” and checked out the other two singles she had out before, I found they worked best together. All three of them kept up the flowing meditative pristine sound with beautiful vocals, with each showing its own side. Today I learn I was right – the new album…you can keep reading our review here
2.- Washing Machina The Perfect Misfits. is a wonderful mix of indie-rock mixed with an ethereal vibe, almost psychedelic. It is truly one of a kind but it does resemble The Pixies a lot. With infectious guitar riffs, a variety of grooves, and graceful vocals, the songs captivate you in an instant. You can keep reading our review here
3.- Blueprint Tokyo A Whole New Life… which is introduced by the ambient sound of a crowd of people talking, before the opening verse begins with its reverb-laden guitars, resonant bass, and steady mid-tempo beat. Deep vocals nicely complement the dreamy guitar textures throughout the track’s verses, while harmonizing… you can keep reading our review here.
4.- Amethysts Amethysts Suffolk Ambient Dream-Pop duo Amethysts are releasing their long awaited, self titled debut album. Self-recorded and working co-producing with an acclaimed producer Shuta Shinoda (Daughter, Ghost Poet) the pair have built a reputation for their unique live shows and stylistic songwriting resulting in press acclaim, national radio play and placements across Spotify and Apple Music playlists.
Building atmospheric, emotional soundscapes across the 13 track album, the duo showcase their ability to create music with both immense depth and a catchy hook.
5.- Eema Naomi Evidence Of The Spiral. Evidence of the Spiral is the debut album by psych-folk-rocker, Eema Naomi. With lyrics that ponder the existential and musicianship that straight-up rips, make a campfire, and play this front-to-back, and don’t forget the hidden track.
6.- Ouseburn Collective Y.I.D.I.Y. Ouseburn Collective emerged in Newcastle Upon Tyne in 2015 as a platform for Scottish Polis Inspectors’ Michael Cook’s solo, largely improvisational, studio practice. Still at the core of the project, Cook has recently been recording with other musicians who will feature on subsequent releases.
The Collective’s forthcoming album Y.I.D.I.Y centres on Cook’s solo compositions and includes multi-tracked guitar improvisations and songs recorded and completed over the recent Covid lockdowns. Stylistically, it draws from alternative Rock, Pop, Jazz, and Free Improvisation.
8- Weekend Punks Weekend Punks EP Written and recorded between Southampton (UK) and Reykjavik (Iceland), Weekend Punks play Surf Pop, but with relatively little experience of surf or sun. Reverb on everything, distortion on most things, and a nostalgia for places and times never visited.
9.- Heirloome, Cycles Written in the wake of the sudden loss of their younger brother, ethereal Australian artist Heirloome has released their debut EP, ‘Cycles’ – three intimate chamber pop/folktronica tracks exploring the experience of grief, and asking what it means to still find magic in the world after loss.
This week we have two bonuses, you really need to listen to it:
Cherry Dream, the EP Broken Dream-Land ” is noticeable for its genre-bending characteristics. The catchiness of pop-punk and dark-pop blended with trap elements, dreamy synths, hypnotic guitars, distorted vocals, and notable percussion elements. The vocal techniques, mixed backing vocals, melodies, and harmonies help us understand the emotional characterization of the main character through the project like a personal story told in the first person for the first time. It compels the listener from the very first second all the way to the end.
