Howdy friends. The energetic debut album by Canadian indie rock band PS I Love You was first released in some markets in October of 2010. However, earlier this week it was released in Europe and also added to Spotify. Genre: indie rock. Enjoy!
PS I Love You – Meet Me at the Muster Station
Evening. This odd little album by Wonder Wheel was released in 2010. I have no idea when it was added to Spotify. Genre: intense lo-fi noise pop. Enjoy!
Wonder Wheel – Succotash Xs
Morning. Here are four albums from 2010 that I must have forgotten about at the time of their release. Usually I just try to save these releases for the slower Spotify periods, but not this time. Enjoy!
(No time for genres, sorry.)
(A post with four 2011 releases should be up shortly.)
Former Ghosts – New Love.
Gustaf Ljunggren – Fractions and Pastures
Sea Of Bees – Songs For The Ravens
The Notes – Wishing Well
Hey. Here you have another late 2010 addition to Spotify. The following Pitchfork quote should be enough to get a good idea of what this is all about: “Gatekeeper combine elements of mid-period Cabaret Voltaire (the eerie, unintelligible sampled moans and growls), the most sinister stalking-you-down-a-dark-alley strains of Detroit techno (think Suburban Knight more than Derrick May), and the on-the-cheap choral grandeur of every keyboard-owning “composer” ever tasked to rip off Vangelis’ score for Blade Runner.” Pretty good stuff. Enjoy!
Gatekeeper – Giza EP
Hey. I stumbled upon this lovely album by Russian pop singer-songwriter Chikiss a couple of days ago. I’m not sure when it was added to Spotify, but since it was released one year ago I assume it was sometime last year. This is my best find in a long time. Highly recommended listening. Enjoy!
Chikiss – Chikiss
Hey again. This fine album by Emil de Waal+ was released last summer. Genre: experimental/electronic/jazz. Enjoy!
Emil de Waal+ – Elguitar & Saxofon
Hi. The latest album by Finnish electronic/pop trio Uusi Fantasia is a recent addition to the Spotify library. It was first released in November of 2010. Enjoy!
(Note: I’m off to visit family for a couple of days and will be back on Saturday with more updates.)
Uusi Fantasia – Heimo
Hi. This EP by British synthpop duo Labyrinth Ear was released in October of 2010 and finally added to Spotify today. Good stuff. Enjoy!
Labyrinth Ear – Oak
