What's New Music? AWM Edition

Brittkemp posted some nice stuff so I hope I can do this as well (!?)


This is Christine and the Queens who, as I understand it, is one person and she is from France.  The vocal is subtle and powerful.  I'm not 100 on what is going on in the video but it is captivating.  


This is a catchy nice pop song by Tessa Violet.  She has an album coming out and I'm excited.  Everything about this is weird which is nice.  She has yellow hair and is in the supermarket.


If you like Depeche Mode and don't understand why we don't listen to them 24/7 you should check out Glitterwølf.  Don't let the art on the clip below dissuade you.  The actual album art is nice.  These are two guys from England and if you write to them on Facebook with an album title suggestion they will respond.  Downside is the goofy ASCII character in the band name.  



This is Master Boot Record which is aggressive chiptune music with weird nostalgic DOS imagery.  I'm waiting for the record to come in the mail before really delving into them but this has got some BIG sound.


If you want some martial sounding electronic stuff but don't necessarily need to dance to it then check out Vatican Shadow.  This album came out in 2013 which in my opinion is still new.  Apparently this guy is quite prolific and has several other well-known projects which I've yet to check out.

I'm also going to throw some old stuff in here because I love to share music.  If you've never heard the Pet Shop Boys, holy shit, listen to them ASAP.


I also came across this really nice, calm jazz album for 50 cents that is worth a big share.  Claude Bolling is a jazz pianist and this album features classical flautist Jean-Pierre Rampal in his first jazz recording.  Really nice combo here.  And as a bonus, the cover art features a piano and a flute in bed, smoking after having sex!

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

Tusse releases French Language Version of "Voices"

In case you missed Eurovision this past weekend - and if you're an American, you likely did - there were some truly talented acts among those competing for this year's prestigious title. There were some pretty boring acts, and there were only a few of truly strange contestants this time around (bummer).  Sweden's act Tusse was pretty talented; his joyful and uplifting track "Voices" was actually one of the few that seemed rather memorable to me. Turns out he's releasing it in French - which makes sense, as Tusse is Kongo-Kinshasa born. Tusse is enormously popular in Sweden from what I can tell, having won both Melodifestivalen (Sweden's precursor to Eurovision) and Swedish Idol. He's a talented guy, and I'm sure we're just seeing the start of what is bound to be a long and prolific career.   (you might not be able to watch this outside of Sweden so, see below) The French version of "Voices" is available for streaming here .  Also, whi
