Week 50 2021 Hi you all, I hope you’re doing great, are you ready for the holidays?, Welcome back to your Blog LT1KF my music lover friends, here we go again with these 9 artists/bands that I handpicked for you to enjoy, let’s take a look at this round of 9 Albums/EPs you should listen to, released all of them recently (remember that you always can take a look back at our previous week recommendations here).
1- Polemics The Sesh. Guitar, bass, and drums. That’s really all you need! Of course with the melodic help of a few vocals and synths to add detail and depth. This EP is a mix of grunge, punk, and math-rock, a perfect introduction to the band if you haven’t heard of them before. Brainy, heavy, and with a pop sensibility, “The Sesh” is what we’ve been expecting this whole time. You can keep reading our review here.
2.- Louis Warner Littel Afriacan Drama follows Louis’ debut Hoarse Laughter (2020) and was inspired by a childhood growing up in rural South Africa and witnessing the harsh realities of the daily lives of the majority of its indigenous citizens. “I didn’t set out to write an album about Africa,” he says, “…but over the year as the tunes started to come together, I felt myself thinking about the desperate scenes I witnessed growing up.”
3.- Eva Gardner, Darkmatter “Before I had dreams of becoming a musician, I wanted to be an astronomer,” Eva says. “Staring up into the night sky has always been a source of enchantment and wonder for me. What is really going on in the space between the stars in the sky? In astronomical terms, dark matter is material that cannot be seen directly, but it’s believed to account for the unexplained motions of stars within galaxies — just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there. Creating music is a deep dive within the dark matter of our own psyches.”
4- This Occasional Society By Sea is the third ep this year (and third ep ever) by Southampton based experimental, instrumental, electronic act ‘this occasional society’. They are probably a minority interest. they are okay with that. Good hearts. clear heads.
5.- Cal In Red Act Like In their own words “The EP touches a lot on daily anxieties, shortcomings, and navigating your 20s. It’s about growth despite a “social devolving” rooted in the ever evolving world of technology. It’s watching our technological advancements slowly pull us further out of our skin and into our screens; into a new reality. There’s a disconnect from one another thats engrained in us almost at a cellular level.
Sonically, the inspiration is coming from our favorite artists; Tame Impala, Beach House and MGMT to name a few.
7- Kimberly Walker Freckles In her own words: “This Alternative RnB EP is inspired by my journey of letting go of the past and giving into new love. It follows the ups and downs of a new relationship, and exposes the different sides of my personality. From my most insecure, vulnerable moments… to feeling confident, sassy and empowered, this body of work captures a period of change in my life where I began to allow myself to open up and fall in love again.”
8.- Char Simpler Times “In her own words: “We so often struggle to see our inner resilience, until we have no choice but to draw on it. This EP is about self-reflection and knowing that despite the challenges our mind may go through we are stronger than we think.”
9.- Sigma Defence Abandon Ship In his own words “This album is a labour of love and endurance. Originally recorded in 2019, I was actually afraid to put this on streaming sites but the response has been so overwhelming that I had no choice. I dont want to be classified as a singer or rapper. I want to make music. Wherever it flows, it flows…”
The bonus for this week belongs to Amanda Tovalin the album Infinito Infinity is a musical trilogy based on the different states of the mind, understanding that they are an infinite loop where both sadness and joy are only temporary moments. It also has a series of track by tracks with collaborations from experimental and courageous musicians who narrate different emotions that inspire the songs.
