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.

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 (five 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

a couple of recent Erstwhile releases have sort of reinvigorated my interest in the label.. that, and there's a 20% discount on all titles until August 15 (on bandcamp)
each album is a duo recording, each sounds both improvised and assembled (as collage) -- the Will Guthrie / Hong Chulki is probably the livelier of the two--featuring (heavy) bits of turntable and guitar wreckage, fragmented pieces of percussion and instances of straightforward drumming, electronics (sharp radio static-like sounds, etc.), and field recordings. they're both very well recorded--Mosquitoes and Crabs has a great visceral punch and prickliness to it.
My Trust in You (Marc Baron and Lucio Capece) is more varied, with lots of tape recorder/recording -fuckery by Marc Baron (along with other "analog devices"), and some lovely / atmospheric clarinet work by Lucio Capece. Capece is also credited with "slide saxophone, analog synthesizer and filter, drum machines, double looper, equalizers in feedback, regular and telephone field recordings, mini speakers in movement"
these albums are sort of a breath of fresh air, re: Erstwhile releases, and it's a good time to take advantage of the 205 off sale.
