What a surprise. There’s a new Daniel Romano album and it’s featured here. “Cobra Poems” is another stellar collection of some of the best songwriting in today’s rock music, and it doesn’t seem like Romano’s Outfit will stop steamrolling any soon.
Mega Bog’s new record is our album of the week. If you know her work – we were all over her previous album, “Dolphine”, back in 2019 – you know exactly what to expect; if not, well, if you’re into exquisite songwriting (think Cate Le Bon or Helena Deland), this might just be your jam.
Sven Wunder’s third album in three years is out now on Mr Bongo. After exploring 70s Anatolian rock and Japanese min’yō in his last two fusion jazzy tomes, “Natura Morta” draws from still life paintings and its relationship with nature.
