#265: Arlo Parks, “Collapsed in Sunbeams”

Feel-good pop doesn’t seem to fulfil its promise these days. But Arlo Parks‘s debut album, “Collapsed in Sunbeams”, manages to bring a little bit of sunlight-infused pop into our hearts and ears. Extra points for the poetic-feel and the whimsical but very accurate Portra 400 reference.

#224: Mapache, “From Liberty Street”

Mapache define themselves as “cosmic West Coast Pop Americana”, which is enough of a descriptor to deter me from writing anything else to try to explain what they sound like except for “They definitely know their Everly Brothers”. The Californian duo has just released their second album and we’re delighted to share it with you on our second (third?) week of quarantine. We didn’t even know it was Wednesday.
