New Music Friday - 5/31/19

Post by ken » Fri May 31, 2019 11:29 am

Last day of May, what are you checking out?

I just listened to Duff McKagen - Tenderness and it was pretty good. I kept thinking about how Axl Rose gets a lot of the credit, but Duff wrote some of the songs from Appetite for Destruction as well. This album is kind of bluesy in a classic, classic rock kind of way. Duff's vocals aren't Axl Rose great, but they are good enough for this veteran's album.

I checked out Run Around The Sun by Sacred Paws and it was pretty great! Energetic indie-pop with highlife guitar lines, layered vocals and a brass section.

I also checked out Solipsisters by Katie Dey which is pretty experimental and unusual lo-fi pop with a lot of vocal processing. Interesting, needs further investigation (but then I thought the same about her last album and then didn't put the effort in to figure out whether I liked it).

New Sleater-Kinney! And new Sufjan Stevens! I don't love his super-processed, super-produced stuff and these lyrics are sweet but boring, but I'm still always excited to hear new songs from him.

So glad that new Sleater-Kinney is almost out. They just released a single, but not the whole album yet. It is produced by St. Vincent!

Oh yes I listened to that new Sleater-Kinney song! I guess I forgot because, uh, I kinda hated it. Not keen on that new sound at all.

No particularly strong feelings one way or the other, really. The new Sleater-Kinney song reminded me of The Gossip though, who I've never been keen on.

I'm enjoying the new album from Sinkane - Dépaysé

https://www.sinkane.com/

Sinkane is a Sudanese-American musician who blends krautrock, prog rock, electronica, free jazz and funk rock with Sudanese pop. He is signed to City Slang Records. Born to college professors in London, he lived in Sudan, then moved to the US when he was five, and lived for some time in Ohio.
