After two very promising EPs back in 2019, Dry Cleaning have finally launched their first long play, ‘New Long Leg’. Here, Florence Shaw’s sharp, deadpan spoken word vocals contrast with the chaotic instrumentation of the English post-punkish art-rockers in one of the most intriguing (and well accomplished) rock and roll albums of 2021.

Our playlist #38 has a lot of songs in it. The new Donnie Fritts record, Oh My Goodness just came out, and there’s two songs off it on our playlist. But it was pretty difficult for us to find a consensus on which album to put on the spotlight: there’s also two songs off new records by U.S. Girls, Mercury Rev, and Robert Forster to listen to, along with new or recent songs by Tindersticks, Kurt Vile, They’re Heading West (a beautiful Samuel Úria cover, featuring the man himself), Daniel Knox, Geir Sundstøl, and Glen Hansard. Listen to the playlist below and don’t forget to follow the main playlist here and check all the songs we’ve been championing since the first week of the year here.
