Week 06 2022 Hey, I hope you’re doing great my friends, welcome to your Blog LT1KF, here we’re with 9 handpicked albums/eps 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).
ALL ALBUMS/EPS SUBMITTED AND DISCOVERED VIA MUSOSOUP
1- Luchi Retro by sound and modern by thoughts – that’s how “Alien Girl” is described. It’s Luchi’s debut album that comes with 8 songs, all of which participate in the overall storyline of finding happiness with their own little stories. It’s also her strongest work so far when it comes to songwriting – every song feels like a full-bodied perfection. The songs are sweet on their own, but together they create a seamless experience. The album has some of the smoothest transitions I’ve heard – if those were seams, they’d be the kind of perfection every tailor seeks to achieve.You can keep reading our review here.
2.- 2AMature DCxPC Vol 1 The songs on 2AMature’s DCxPC Live split 7” with Call in Dead were based on teenage angst and having to transition from childhood to adulthood. The lyrics come from poems that were written by a band member in high school as a release for the amount of stress that he had to go through on his own as a young adult transitioning to adulthood.

3.- 9 o’clock Nasty, The Nasty get naughty in “Sex “, a three-track EP filled with sexuality, booze, and a sh1t load of fun. Get down on it and bask yourself with the unorthodox charisma and funky attitude of this unpredictable trio.
One thing that I love about the Nasty is that you never know what to expect. One minute is pure garage rock, the other a laid-back mellow tune to pass the time. Also, the creativity they put into their image and music videos is unparalleled, from amusing meme-like single covers with Elon Musk in them, to strange face-masks and make-up, the originality behind these guys is really something to look at.

In his own words: My name is Rich Freitas and I have been in many seminal rock bands over the past thirty years as a drummer ( 17 Relics, Low-Beam, and Slander), and now I am releasing my first solo album as Ellery Twining.
After seven years of not making any music at all, the idea to simply write my own record and not to start a band resulted in “Revenge” which was released via Bandcamp on Monday 17 January 2022.
I wrote all of the nine songs on acoustic guitar, and added the drums, vocals of the lyrics I wrote, and the majority of the studio overdubs. The record was done at Dirt Floor Recording in Haddam CT, well known for their signature sound.
5.- Mirabai Kukathas How to Make Purple is the sophomore album from 20-year-old Seattle and New York-based singer/songwriter, Mirabai Kukathas. Releasing a mere nine months after her debut album, this new project is a collection of eight tracks about insecurity and romantic love that Mirabai wrote in response to a comment about how she “couldn’t write a love song”. The album is about her own personal experiences and queer identity, as well as the infinitely relatable experiences of being unsuccessful or unsure in love. Some songs are somewhat satirical, yet all are incredibly emotionally vulnerable, keeping with Mirabai’s penchant for mixing irony with sincerity. “How to Make Purple” is about simultaneously wanting and not wanting. It’s a dialectic. It’s holding space for multiple truths. It’s red and it’s blue and it’s both and it’s neither. Produced over Zoom and recorded entirely in bedrooms and college dorms, Mirabai and her collaborators have once again blended folk, rock, pop, and jazz to create something enticingly sweet, smart, and sincere.
6.- Marianne Engebretsen Something New it’s fresh sound coming from this critically acclaimed Norwegian artist. Her second studio album deals with the new phases of life, for better or worse, through her vulnerable and honest songs.
7- Sukko A Violent Deep Feel Beginning 2022 with purpose, Sükko’s bold and thought-provoking new EP, ‘A Violent Deep Feel’, sees the exciting ‘5-piece’ from Norwich return to their indie/rock roots. With heavy guitar riffs and powerful vocal lines, the band’s latest production tackles current global issues such as racial and gender equality, as well as mental health, highlighting the importance for a systematic change in our society.
8.- Emily Parish Don’t Need Much This EP was written throughout 2021, with the addition of an older song, and encompasses themes from romance to everyday life. I’ve enjoyed creating this small project of work to re-start my creative process after lockdowns and begin to feel like a musician again. It embraces everything from love and relationships to working life and wanting more from my 20s.
The four tracks on the EP include: Don’t Need Much, Moonbeam, Didn’t See You Leaving (re-imagined) and Don’t Need Much (alternative version).
9.- Mili & Bertie Into The Night We wanted the EP to be as dynamic as our live shows and for the whole piece to sound a bit retro and reminiscent of another time whilst still being a new fresh sound. We had originally planned for it to be a four-track EP but when this came together one evening after recording we decided we wanted to add it at the end as an acoustic live performance track.
I hope not only you can enjoy this track but also support these bands streaming and sharing their work that obviously you can fin in the Playlist Less Than 1,000 Followers, Fresh Singles, Indie Only, Alterindie State of Mind, Female Rising Stars, 12 New Songs This Week, and Sickest & Dopest.
