#287: Snapped Ankles, “Forest of Your Problems”

We took a week off because we can. It gave us a few extra days to dive deeper into Snapped Ankles’ excellent “Forest of Your Problems”. The noisy London post-punk (if we can define it like that…) band refines their sound further, bringing us some hip-moving motorik we can use to pretend the world is back to normal and we can all dance again. Responsibly.

#228: Fiona Apple, “Fetch the Bolt Cutters”

Another week, another half-surprise release. We didn’t have access to a single song off Fiona Apple’s stunning new record (her first in 8 years) and we missed how good it is to be able to be surprised in an age where we already listened to a third of a record by the time it’s out. Plus: almost two hours of brand new music by the Mountain GoatsBright EyesHamilton Leithauser, King Khan, Malena ZavalaFaye WebsterLido PimientaRina SawayamaBedouineSarah SiskindCourtney Marie AndrewsHazel EnglishPacific RangeFruit BatsTrace MountainsNathan KalishDougie PooleWhiskey Wolves of the West, The Howling Hex, FlatwormsCar Seat HeadrestStereoboyMalojianSir Richard Bishop, and The Deep Dark Woods.
