Lunar Days
by The Clientele
(34 plays) | (0 fans)

“Lunar Days” is one of the standouts on the album; strolling along with an unhurried grace, MacLean sings of the changing of seasons and the days fading away as you feel like there’s no place to go during “the year that the monster woke up.” https://bit.ly/2jeD2Wh

Where You Find Me
by The Notwist
(21 plays) | (0 fans)

The Notwist have announced a new album, Vertigo Days, which is their first in 7 years and will be out January 29 via Morr Music. The album finds core members Markus and Micha Acher and Cico Beck collaborating with a variety of musicians, including Juana Molina, Ben LaMar Gay, Angel Bat Dawid, Saya of Tenniscoats, and Zayaendo. "We wanted to question the concept of a band by adding other voices and ideas, other languages, and also question or blur the idea of national identity,” says Markus. https://www.nme.com/en_asia/news/music/the-notwist-announce-first-album-in-six-years-vertigo-days-listen-to-new-song-where-you-find-me-2816970 Pre-order the album here: https://linktr.ee/notwist

A new documentary about Courtney Barnett is on the way. The 90-minute film, Anonymous Club - which takes its name from a track of the same name off Barnett's 2013 EP, How to Carve a Carrot into a Rose - will explore "the inner life of the notoriously shy artist amidst her significant rise to fame." https://www.brooklynvegan.com/courtney-barnett-documentary-announced/

The concept for Dinner Party was born when Terrace Martin and Robert Glasper were touring with Glasper’s R+R=NOW project, with Martin later reaching out to 9th Wonder and long-time friend Kamasi Washington to join the group. Drawing on soul, jazz and hip-hop, the album features Martin and Washington on sax, Glasper on keys, and 9th Wonder on production, plus contributions from Chicago singer Phoelix. It follows Washington’s 2018 LP "Heaven And Earth", as well as Glasper’s 2019 LP "Fuck Yo Feelings".

Age Of Consent
by New Order
(282 plays) | (2 fans)

"When 'Age of Consent' was debuted live in Blackpool in August 1982, it marked the band's’ first foray into pop music and soon became the fans’ firm favorite. Opening with one of Hook’s most infectious twangy riffs, and powering forth on Morris’s kinetic drumming, this is the sound of New Order throwing back the curtains and letting the sun come in. When John Peel first played it, he singled out Sumner’s two-note guitar motif at 4’14” as the song’s most sublime moment – playing the five-second burst over and over – but the entire song is New Order playing pop music at its most headrushing, joyful and flawless.": https://www.theguardian.com/music/musicblog/2014/aug/06/new-order-10-of-the-best
