This was a very pleasant surprise from the new one from State Bird - Mostly Ghostly. A sparkling acoustic raver with all sorts of wild backing vocals and random horns. I think this song is closer to what the people who’ve only ever read bad reviews of Sung Tongs and never actually listened to the band expect of Animal Collective. I mean that in a good way.
This is from the (extraordinarily) oddly titled debut from A Faulty Chromosome - As An Ex-Anorexic’s Six Sicks Exit,…, which I’ve been listening to for a few days now and will most likely post further about later in the week. This one is pure weird indie-pop mixed with smothered show-gaze - completely chaotic, messy, and strangely beautiful.
A standout from the remarkable Visiter. The Dodos have accomplished a rare feat - crafted an album with 14 tracks and a run time of over 60 minutes that doesn’t get dull. Freak-folk never sounded so celebrity-playlist-ready as on the first single.
