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!

Hey. Lux by Disappears used to be one of the best albums from 2010 that wasn’t available on Spotify. But not anymore. It was added earlier this week and if you haven’t already found it you should really give it a try. Recommended listening. Enjoy!

Hi again. First released in December of 2010, this explosive debut album by Swedish metalcore band Yersinia is a very recent addition to Spotify. Enjoy!

(Some reviews in Swedish here.)


Yersinia – Efter oss syndafloden

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!
