No thread for Tirzah seems wrong.

adore tirzah.

one year passes...

Loving the new album, Holding On is an early fave.

MikoMcha, Tuesday, 14 August 2018 09:35 (three years ago) link

Damn gotta hear this.

Abomination Street (Ross), Tuesday, 14 August 2018 09:36 (three years ago) link


Tirzah is the best. Her work with micachu is also off the shelf; top drawer stuff.

Loving the record. It's been such a long wait since her 2013/2014 EPs.

ˈʌglɪɪst preɪ, Tuesday, 14 August 2018 10:36 (three years ago) link

wow, this has made me incredibly happy.

This has been growing on me. Also it's sooo UK.

Strong Dean Blunt vibe here.

Britain's Sexiest Cow (jed_), Friday, 17 August 2018 14:25 (three years ago) link

Also has some extreme James Blake vibes here and there (like on 'Do You Know').

very much taken with this record, which at moments seems similar to say the oneohtrix or yves tumor, but has that extra magic bit of squiffiness. guilty is my favourite atm, this year's endlessly repeatable little jewel. something calmly confident about it, that oddly effortless flow

ogmor, Tuesday, 11 September 2018 13:53 (three years ago) link

Loving this record. Definite hype Williams vibes in the production; as much as hypnagogic bedroom music gets bandied around this is a perfect version of that.

Nice and tirzah are a dream team: also on previous releases like I’m not dancing, their voices mesh perfectly

Ross, Friday, 14 September 2018 15:21 (three years ago) link

Just realized children fell Jackie melodically mirrors holding on from this record. Mica is a class act

The sonics got old really fast for me on this one, which is a shame, because there was a lot of subtle beauty in that very honest approach.

ninthyoung, Monday, 24 September 2018 13:33 (three years ago) link

old in which way?

really liked the minimal fizzled out sounds on this one, like on the intro track which seems to threaten to disappear into the ether

Ross, Monday, 24 September 2018 16:10 (three years ago) link

not dated, but lacking in detail and depth. Which is part of the charm in the first place I know, but some of the tracks just fell flat after a few listens. On Holding On and Gladly especially, the quirk started to work against itself and I now can't listen to the latter because of how much the snare annoys me.

ninthyoung, Monday, 24 September 2018 17:57 (three years ago) link

how do you like it in comparison to her earlier work, like the i'm not dancing EP

Devotion is straight fire.

disagree with this so hard

I didn't get this record until I played it super loud while closing up the shop I work at late at night.

The minimalism and small details (a doubled vocal here, a tom hit there) give it atmosphere/depth. I can see how the aesthetic choices wouldn't be enough to hold people for multiple listens.

V into records that I can actively listen to or play over-and-over while working and jamming this works for both. Into it.

ten months pass...

So they’re on tour and Mica is in their band? I’m at their show right now and it’s uhhh well it’s mindblowing in the most cool and understated way imaginable

I kept trying to type imaginable and it kept autocorrecting to “imago ableist” make of that what you will

fgti (flamboyant goon tie included), Wednesday, 25 September 2019 02:34 (two years ago) link

Mica has been there producing and co-writing since the beginning I think? I’ve read some articles that actually describe Tirzah as a duo.

They seem to me like two of the coolest women in music nowadays. Would love to hang out with them.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Wednesday, 25 September 2019 03:22 (two years ago) link

are they playing new material?

clouds (peanutbuttereverysingleday), Wednesday, 25 September 2019 05:03 (two years ago) link

Would love to see this (and lol @ auto-correct)

one year passes...

last month




I love both.

This isn't by Tirzah but could be. On stroom from 2019 although it's on a compilation so it could be older.

four months pass...

New album out this week:


Four of the songs are previously released (a couple above) on the excellent Hive Mind EP:


Indexed, Wednesday, 29 September 2021 13:42 (four weeks ago) link

Out now

✖✖✖ (Moka), Friday, 1 October 2021 13:13 (three weeks ago) link

Was not expecting it to be as experimental as it is. Sounds like Dean Blunt in places. I need more time with this one.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Friday, 1 October 2021 13:16 (three weeks ago) link

Completely fails to grab me

Nabozo, Friday, 1 October 2021 13:34 (three weeks ago) link

Yeah it’s definitely not something I’m immediately in love with as I was with Devotion.

I’m assuming Mica is not involved in this one?

✖✖✖ (Moka), Friday, 1 October 2021 14:02 (three weeks ago) link

She is, she co-wrote and produced 9 out of 10 tracks (apart from the Dean Blunt one).

It's definitely a grower compared to Devotion but I don't mind it at all, I'm looking forward to spending more time with it over next couple of weeks.

ˈʌglɪɪst preɪ, Friday, 1 October 2021 15:05 (three weeks ago) link

Oh Dean Blunt is involved too? What track is he on? Is it “sink in”? That’s the one that reminded me of his music.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Friday, 1 October 2021 16:25 (three weeks ago) link

Where do you check credits? I was checking on allmusic and it only lists Tirzah as songwriter/producer for this.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Friday, 1 October 2021 16:31 (three weeks ago) link

Huh, I’m actually loving this one on first listen, whereas her previous album was a grower for me

josh az (2011nostalgia), Sunday, 3 October 2021 07:06 (three weeks ago) link

"Tectonic" reminds me of Jenny Hval's The Practice of Love.

Indexed, Monday, 4 October 2021 15:10 (three weeks ago) link

this is great
very hushed, hypnotic

crepuscular rays almost reminds me of durutti column

Blues Guitar Solo Heatmap (Free Download) (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Monday, 4 October 2021 16:59 (three weeks ago) link

It’s creepy as fuck too. The first album was dreamy and sensual, and this one feels like designed to be dreadful and nightmarish. It’s menacing right at door with that opening title track.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Thursday, 7 October 2021 03:31 (two weeks ago) link

I like that she's gone in such a different direction. Don't know if it's good yet, but it at least has my attention.

Mr. Cacciatore (Moodles), Thursday, 7 October 2021 03:38 (two weeks ago) link

Oh I’m 100% for change and love that he went somewhere completely unexpected but I’m not on board with it for now. It’s too much of a bad trip for me and I’m in no mood for bad trips this year. Maybe later this month since it’s horror season I’ll give it a chance…

✖✖✖ (Moka), Thursday, 7 October 2021 04:26 (two weeks ago) link

She not he

✖✖✖ (Moka), Thursday, 7 October 2021 04:30 (two weeks ago) link

I do like that somehow she managed to make her music even more sparse sounding.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Thursday, 7 October 2021 04:34 (two weeks ago) link

Songs like “crepuscular rays” doesn’t even sound like a song it’s like two filtered things bouncing back and forth in a manually controlled loop. It’s kind of pretty but I can’t shake that feeling of dread…

✖✖✖ (Moka), Thursday, 7 October 2021 04:37 (two weeks ago) link

Living in South London the past few years, I feel that Tirzah and her broader milieu of collaborators like Mica Levi, Coby Sey, Dean Blunt, CURL, etc. really capture the overall feeling here during these times, and then the UK in general... so yeah, that the new one is dreadful and nightmarish makes perfect sense to me.

MikoMcha, Friday, 8 October 2021 07:37 (two weeks ago) link

This live video with Coby Sey and Mica Levi has made it click for me:


✖✖✖ (Moka), Friday, 15 October 2021 23:37 (one week ago) link

I love this way more than anything else I've heard from her.
