Caribou returns to the fold along with many other great new releases this week and Getintothis’ Simon Kirk has the details.
We say it all the time but we’ll say it again. Happy Friday!
It’s been a long week folks but we’re happy you stopped by to stick your head in here for a look.
Yup, happy Caribou day, people. There seems to be an enclave of Caribou aficionados in Liverpool unlike anywhere else, really. It’s a good thing, don’t worry – we’re not judging.
Like every other week, there’s more to whet the appetite, too.
This writer’s looking forward to what Soccer Mommy has up her sleeve with her color theory. There’s plenty of other great stuff below to sink your fangs in to as well.
So, enough rambling, let’s get down to it.
Below are our top 7 picks for this week. Be safe and enjoy your weekend.
1. Caribou: Suddenly
Ontario-born Dan Snaith releases his first Caribou album in six years with Suddenly.
Suffice to say, there’s a fair bit of excitement over this one.
A full tour is to follow and you can find all the details about Cairbou‘s forthcoming Liverpool show here.
2. Real Estate: The Main Thing
Real Estate are back with their latest album, The Main Thing, which follows 2017’s underrated In Mind.
The Main Thing is mooted as the band’s most inspired and self-aware to date. The album was produced at upstate New York’s Marcata Sound.
3. The Orielles: Disco Volador
M62 free spirits, The Orielles, return with their second album, Disco Volador.
4. Soccer Mommy: color theory
Loma Vista Recordings
Sophie Allison, known better to us as Soccer Mommy, is back with her new album, color theory and if it’s anything as good as her last record, Clean, then we’re in for a treat.
Fans of Weyes Blood‘s Titanic Rising may have arrived at the right place here.
5. Wasted Shirt: Fungus II
Fungus II could be anything, but one thing is for sure. If you like a bit of chaos, then this one’s for you.
6. Daniel Davies: Signals
Any John Carpenter fans out there? Well, here’s a bit of an alternative fix for you with Daniel Davies who releases his first album for Sacred Bones in Signals.
The album is said to be a collaboration with visual artist, Jesse Draxler. Night time sound scapes right here.
7. Grimm Grimm: Ginormous
Tip Top Recordings
Grimm Grimm‘s Ginormous is the debut album from Japanese born London-based, Koichi Yamanoha.
Here there are all sorts of sounds committed to tape.
They call it future folk. We’ll let you decide what to make of it.
