Grimes, 潘PAN – Darkseid

Eerie, dark alt pop from Grimes taken from her new album Miss Anthropocene. Unlike what seemed like pretty much everyone else I wasn’t a massive fan of Art Angles, but have really been enjoying this on the first few listens.

Kamaiyah – 1-800-IM-HORNY

This is from the new Kamaiyah album that landed today. Definitely not one for the family playlist – outrageously explicit but so fun and bangs properly hard. Happy Friday!

Sufjan Stevens, Lowell Brams – The Unlimited

Sufjan has made a ‘new age’ (his words, not mine) album with his stepfather which is coming out next month, and this is the lead single. It’s brief but pretty intense: definitely more Age of Adz than Seven Swans. Intrigued to hear the LP.

Brainwaltzera – kurrytee [MIDI_2_CV]

This is a couple of years old but I only just stumbled upon it. Floaty, evocative synths and lots of industrial clanging. Quite Boards of Canada-esque if you’re into that kind of thing.

Nicolas Godin – We Forgot Love

We Forgot Love is taken from Nicolas Godin’s solo album Concrete And Glass, and is very reminiscent of his work as one half of Air – not that that’s a bad thing. The album’s a bit of a mixed bag, but this – with a blissfully fragile vocal from Kadhja Bonet – is lovely.

Yumi Zouma – Cool For A Second

You could probably make a fairly convincing argument that this isn’t really doing anything massively original and is a bit beige. I take this on board, but ultimately it makes me feel warm and happily nostalgic and sometimes that’s just what you need.

Beatrice Dillon – Workaround Eight

This is taken from Beatrice’s new album Workaround which came out last week on PAN. The entire album is great – really engaging, stripped-down, glitchy electronica – but this is the track that stood out for me.

Saint Jhn – Call Me After You Hear This

The first song I heard of Saint Jhn’s was Roses, and I’ve been into him ever since. This is from his Ghetto Lenny’s Love Songs album from 2019, and is absolutely brilliant.

Bayonne – I Know

A wonderfully joyous record. Hope it sticks around for a while as it’s got summer written right through it. Kinda reminds me of Alt-J, but in a good way.

Okay Kaya – Ascend And Try Again

I was a little bit disappointed by her new album as I loved the previous one, but this track is a clear standout. Hauntingly weird.
