Michael Donoghue, The Brouhaha, Motihari Brigade, and more…

September 24, 2022.

Hey, great to have you on the block for first time, and to you that isn’t your first time welcome back, hopefully you’re doing great and enjoying the weekend, and I have some great releases for you to enjoy, if you’re not familiar with the concept of the blog or the name don’t give you already a clue we bring week in and week out a tone of unknown but with a lot of talent, upcoming artists for you to enjoy that as I usually mention the only thing that they need is you to listen to their work. So, this is Week 38, and this is your round up for 9 Albums/EPs you should listen to.

This week I want to invite you to visit our category Q&A we already have a bunch of interviews with some really cool artists, so feel free to take a look and enjoy them.

And as every week a friendly reminder to please have in mind that you can support these artists in so many ways that are at your fingertips, to mention a few: stream, like (heart their songs on the platform that you use), follow their profiles all over social media, share them with you loved ones, add them to your playlists, pre-save their upcoming releases and if you can go to their live performances that would be the ultimate experience in support and enjoyment for you both.

Most of these albums are recently released (and important to say that you always can take a look back at our previous week recommendations Alba James, Sharl, Aniqa Dear, and more…, for the whole 2022 or 2021).


1.- Michael Donoghue’s album Fractals makes us ponder about human existence through his use of patterns and harmonies to create magical soundscapes that resemble not only a forest, but also the human mind. You can read our review here.

2.- The Brouhaha presents their brand-new eponymous album contains Ska, Funk, Punk, Reggae, Rock, Spanish melodies, Oriental melodies, amazing chants, stupefying riffs, ground shaking rhythms, tribal drums, menacing lyrics, and a sarcastic sense of humor like no one else. You can read our review here.

3.- If George Orwell had a rock band, it would be Motihari Brigade. This album is a super groovy/funky collection of tracks created to help listeners escape zombie dystopia and more happily navigate the virtual reality show we are all busily sharing on our smart appendages. “Algorithm & Blues” has it all, and a bit more. LISTEN NOW! You can read our review here.

4.- Just like an ocean of digital sounds, this EP presents a beautiful and poetic electronic music experience. “Sertraline” by Big in Borneo is a chemically induced three-track collection, named after the drug, that helped this artist overcome anxiety.  You can read our review here.

5.- In 2020, Katmaz left Brooklyn, NY, and went on a journey, alone, across the United States. The expedition took three months and spanned twenty National Parks. He packed a condensed version of his home studio and recorded demos along the way. The experience culminated in the recording of his debut LP, “Tell Me How Great You Are.” with producer and childhood friend, Savings, in the desert town of 29 Palms, just outside of Joshua Tree National Park.

6.- Philomuse offers dreamy vibes within an energetic soundscape creating a perfectly balanced addition to the indie-pop genre. There is a little something for everyone in this EP – “Stuck

  7.-  Jesper Klein & the surrounding in their own words: “These songs pics a lot of its musical inspiration from late 70s Dylan stuff and also NY & Crazy horse. The intention was to capture that golden band groove sound that comes from playing off each other in a room.” Liston Now their debut EP “She Said

8-  Frowein Pedersen are a German/Danish duo based in Zürich. On their debut album “Neighbours” they infuse a jazzy sound with elements of Hip Hop, World Music and 90’s Trip Hop. Combining loops, samples, and scratches with a wide range of both traditional and quirky instruments, they have created an eclectic sound floating from positive and energizing vibes to more moody and experimental moments.

9.- How To Ask is the cinematically ambitious new EP by Colour TV. In their own words: “We are feverishly determined songwriters and feel our music communicates something urgent and vital. For whatever influences are detectable in our sound, we are not precious about idols and revere each other above all else.”

This week I have a couple of bonuses for you first Mike McKensie with his beautiful EP “The Art Of Change

Someone said PUNK? Well with All due Respect that you deserve take your dose for the weekend without “Strings Attached”.
