Hi, I hope you’re doing great, enjoying the weekend, and ready to check out the amazing albums that I have for you today, maybe you’re already aware of most of them if you’re following the blog, this week I have 7 reviewed for our fantastic team, and was hard to pick one as the “Album of the Week” between such great releases, but one that is a standout in some many ways, and released today is “Playscapes” by Tuulikki Bartosik, and I need to quote her talking about her album
“Playscapes offers something for everyone: you can listen to it when you’re in a sad or happy mood, when you want to wander somewhere on new paths of thought or to clarify something old and familiar within yourself. This music can be listened to as a background to other activities, or attentively and focused just for the sake of listening, some of the tunes are quite dancable too, depending on your mood.”Tuulikki Bartosik
Honestly, you need to listen to this album, is incredible the way that Tuulikki makes her accordion sounds in a way I never heard before, and this is only the cherry on the cake!

ALL ALBUMS/EPS SUBMITTED AND
DISCOVERED VIA MUSOSOUP
1.- “Playscapes” by Tuulikki Bartosik, it’s exciting news for everyone who loves experimental music full of vibrant imagery and sounds that you can almost feel. You can read our review here.
2.-“Arrival” by Pennan Brae In what appears to be conceptual theme, given the name and artwork of the album, there are various spots in the album that sound and call back to a retro-gaming feel. And as most anyone who is familiar with and into those old-school games knows, some of those classic NES soundtracks make for awesome guitar-oriented covers. You can read our review here.
3.-“Talk Of Things” Hailing from London, Frank Joshua’s poetic and far-reaching songs nestle deep in the visceral side of life, describing states of mind that can’t always be pinpointed or explained. His beautiful, thoughtful and emotionally rich music attracts both the listeners as well as some skilled producers that jumped onto the chance of remixing some of Frank’s songs. You can read our review here.
4.-Ethos: Son of a Sharecropper is a personal album that explores the identity of Terry Blade. It presents us with a complex individual making us realize just how our own ethos is influenced by different factors: race, sexuality, history, culture, friends family, life events and many more. Ethos is a deep album that will be released on January 20 on Spotify and on February 3 on other streaming platforms, You can read our review here.
5.-This Debut EP gathers a wide variety of influences spanning from 60’s Classic Rock to 80’s Gospel, as well as the timeless spirit of songwriters like Bob Dylan or Paul McCartney. “A Jejune Affair” by Nick Noon gets up close and personal, with a massive sound of spiritual affinities. You can read our review here.
6.-Coming as a follow-up to the Irish indie-folk artist’s first EP, “Untethered (Side Two)” is a deeply thoughtful EP that hits with beautiful instrumentation and Dylan’s deep, tender vocals. Once you’re allured by the shimmer of guitar strings, you meet poetic lyrics that speak of the glory and woes of human existence with a special kind of eloquent wisdom. You can read our review here.
7.-Our friends from the record label DCxPC is releasing Volume 10 of their live vinyl series. This volume features the smash-mouth, dirty punk rock of RATH & the Wise Guys and the fast-paced, skate-punk ethos of The Kutoffs, both hailing from the Tampa, Florida area. Both of these bands have Bandcamp pages to check out and support for any Bandcampers out there. You can read our review here.
8- The first EP from Stockholm-based The ROLF. It’s funky, cool, and closer to the ditch than the middle of the road.
9.- Trina Kae is a multi-talented Canadian-Filipina producer/singer/songwriter with an airy, dreamy, indie-pop sound. “Narrative” takes listeners on a journey of love, heartbreak, and healing, with raw and vulnerable lyrics about relatable human experiences.
