i'd say the new nils frahm is allright, not more. as the title says quite melodic. easy listening background stuff.

Frequently find James Blake’s music boring but his new song is glitchy and chopped up and I love glitchy and chopped up.

^ i did make a fairly useless thread about peggy gou but i have not been able to shake this one track. classic larry heard-ish house business combined with the same sort of lovely breezy pop sensibilities as someone like dip in the pool

We seem to be in a golden age of African music compilations right now. I'll need to give the Pantsula a good listen. I am also really really enjoying the 'Sweet As Broken Dates' comp of Somalian music on Ostinato at the moment.

I really like Atletico but the first couple of tracks of the album proper weren't really doing it for me. I'm convinced to give it another go.

Getting really addicted to Mor Mor - Heaven’s Only Wishful I have a soft spot for songs that are sung continously low key and monotonic until the end where the singer starts sing-shouts. Selena Gomez Bad Liar did this too.

The two Helena Deland singles and the two Amen Dunes singles released so far are great. I think those two + US Girls are pointing out to be my favorite albums in the first quarter of 2018.

"Dark Oscillations" by Loma is pretty trippy-- spacious production, choral effects, almost proggy feeling. I think younger Hunt3r would deem this cheesy, but not now. Entire album is beautifully assembled.
― Hunt3r, Tuesday, 20 February 2018 17:08 (eight months ago) Permalink
That Loma album is great. Recommend you to listen the albums from the bands forming it: Cross Record and Shearwater. The former in particular (wabi sabi) is amazing.

I'm not sure how much anyone cares about French music around here but I really like the new album by this band called Feu! Chatterton. It's kind of hard to describe, it fits the nouvelle chanson française descriptor I guess, sounds a bit Gainsbourg-y in a few places, singer kinda overdoes the romantic/sad Parisian poet thing at times but I don't mind. Here's "Souvenir", give it a shot:https://youtu.be/qunnzffFTj0
