Secord month of 2021 coming to an end today so here’s my recap for you, if you care? It’s a top ten this time, hopefully that’s not too much music to check out in one go, if you’ve not already listened to these yet?
As The Love Continues by Mogwai tops the UK charts with their 1st number one album after 25 years or something? My very short review is this record is just tooo beautiful for such times we live in:
CARNAGE by Nick Cave & Warren Ellis dropped totally shock and surprise release of this year already, knew they were working on something but didn’t think it would pop-up so quickly! Released under the duo names which previously only put out movie soundtracks. The Bad Seeds drummer Thomas Wydler does play on one song Old Time which I think is my fave, so far but it’s maybe tooo early really because it was only released a couple of days ago:
Me & Ennui Are Friends, Baby by Sarah Mary Chadwick who’s New Zealand born Melbourne based singer-songwriter has her wicked cool seventh solo album released this month:
L.W. by King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard has yet another brand new album, their 17th or something? Dropped only a couple of days ago so tooo early to really say much other that I love this guys but you might know that already?
Here’s wicked cool debut album by new-ish Aussie singer-songwriter with echo by Indigo Sparke:
Great news of the month! Finally Blue Hills by Jonnine is now on Bandcamp and maybe, other streaming platforms for everyone to listen too or even buy! If you need reminding, that was the best album or my fave album of 2020:
Stand alone brand new song of the month is the almost ten mins. epic The Only Baby by John Grant:
Let’s call it, the soundtrack song of this month On Your Way Now by Sharon Van Etten:
Cover song of the month can be Sounds of Then (This is Australia) by Sarah Blasko, originally by GANGajang in 1985:
Finishing with my pick of video clip of the month, winning for me is Bonnie “Prince” Billy & Matt Sweeney back together again with Hall Of Death. Which is from brand new album coming soon entitled Superwolves out on April 30th:
So that’s my month of February new music list recos! What do you think of all them?
