#207: Yīn Yīn, “The Rabbit that Hunts Tigers”

YĪN YĪN’s debut album is another gem coming from the same vibrant Dutch scene that brought us the great Altin Gün. But instead of looking at Turkish folk and psychedelia for influence, the lads from Maastricht infuse South East Asian textures in their Moroder-inspired disco – with a nod to the Ghanaian institution that is Kiki Gyan’s “24 Hours in a Disco” in their single “Dis kô dis kô”. Plus: new tracks by 10 000 Russos, Heavy Lungs, Ancient Shapes, Battles, PAUS, Maria Reis, Chairlift’s Caroline Polachek, Hop Along’s Frances Quinlan, Sarah Pagé, Destroyer, Mikal Cronin, Why?, Common Holly, Simone White, Andy Shauf, Frazey Ford, Courtney Barnett, Youbet, Lankum, Leonard Cohen, and Justin Peter Kinkel-Schuster.

#161: Steady Holiday, “Nobody’s Watching”

Bolachas Now Playing, a new music Spotify playlist updated every Tuesday. 

Dre Babinski’s second album as Steady Holiday has been out in the US for a while now, but it has only been released in Europe last Friday. We love it too much to not promote it as our album of the week, even though so many potentially great records were released last October 5. We didn’t even have enough time to listen repeatedly to most of them, so here’s another 1h30 playlist. Songs by Motel Mirrors, Colter Wall,Phosphorescent, Adia Victoria, Swearin’, Fred Thomas (with Anna Burch), Ancient ShapesBroken Social Scene, Fucked Up (with J Mascis and Jennifer Castle), Super Doppler, Titus Andronicus, Action Bronson, supersilentJerusalem In My Heart, Nathan Bowles, BedouineMolly Burch, Gabby’s World, Julia JacklinDee White, The Wild Reeds, and Night Shop.
