Some recent discoveries:
Mumrunner- Gentle Slopes
I’m not going to lie, I found this in a record shop and bought it purely on the artwork. I think this is...shoegaze? Based on the tags on Bandcamp. I’m not very good with subgenres. It was in the punk/garage bin but I don’t feel that’s accurate, either. Delightful b-side artwork.
Better Oblivion Community Center
I didn’t know this was Conor Oberst’s new thing but once his vocals came in I figured it out pretty quickly. Nice album to put on and chill out around the house to.
Lux Prima by Karen O and Danger Mouse
I was peeping at Broken Bells’ instagram and the second I saw Karen O and Danger Mouse made an album together, I was estactic. Seriously. And it doesn’t disappoint. Feels more mellow and personal than her Yeah Yeah Yeahs work but there’s a few moments where you hear those gritty YYYs vocals. Love it.
