Howdy. Here are four new releases, all recently added to the Spotify library. Enjoy!

(Genres: Cloud Nothings = pop/rock, John Vanderslice = singer-songwriter, Sirenia = gothic metal, White Fence = garage pop/rock)

(A question. I have a couple of very good new releases that I haven’t written about yet. The reason is that they are not available in one of the seven Spotify regions (the UK). Do you want me to write about those releases or should I wait until they are available everywhere?)

Hi again. Today I gave the new Joan As Police Woman album a spin and I liked it. Enjoy!

“But as a whole, The Deep Field nails it. True, the songs are long, it is almost ceaselessly rich, and you’re going to want to skip its first 30 seconds every time. Yet there is something fantastically indulgent and heartening going on here: the sense that Wasser is embracing her peculiarities and making giddy, ebullient light of them. Long may she continue to do so.” BBC review.

The Sights – Most of What Follows Is True

Hello there. Fine debut album by singer-songwriter Lady Lazarus, aka Melissa Ann Sweat, is a new addition to the Spotify library.

“The cover of Mantic may allude to some digitally rendered dream sequence, but these 54 minutes consist of Sweat’s voice paired with her piano. A haunting melody is crooned to conform to the sunken timbre of the keys, conjuring a resonant texture.” Review.
