Wow, what a month witch such great music! I did my best but couldn’t keep it under 20 songs. Time to dig in, we’re going a journey that both undresses and sleeps in – tag along! Spotify playlist at the bottom.
Swine Tax – Hold Your Own
I’m so hoping for an album from this superb alternative, post-punk outfit! Every track they release is golden and this one is no exception!
Brytet – My War
Classic punk rock executed perfectly! The whole EP is foot-stomper of the highest quality – a must listen!
FONTAINES D.C. – Big
My childhood was small, but I’m gonna be BIG! Can’t get the song or phrase out of my head and it’s just pure post-punk pleasure!
Lee Fields & The Expressions – Will I Get Off Easy
Love the base-line and the pumping horns, the strings and – oh right – perhaps the best soul voice right now!
Jeremy Tuplin – Pink Mirror
The funniest tune on the list; a crooner tongue in cheek satirical review of our modern times. It’s more than that though, its a damn fine tune all over!
The Felice Brothers – Undress
Let’s undress America, Pentagon
Jay-Jay Johanson – Heard Somebody Whistle
I love this tune, minimalistic retro jazz with catchy piano and a whistle! It feels like I’m sitting on the lap of the drummer, but the snare is way over in the other room.
Blomst – Mine Hender Brenner
Norwegian rock’n’roll punk turned to the max. Impossible not to like and to sit still for that matter. Well done!
moonweather – I Sleep In
This album is sort of magic and this tune is my current favorite from it. I love the multiple melodies and I love that this type of lo-fi alternative music is making a comeback! All though it may not have been the intention this tune makes me very happy!
Lonesome Shack – Too Bad
Some really excellent stomp blues going on here. Great guitarplaying!
Mdou Moctar – Wiwasharnine
That guitar! This tune gives me goosebumps – it’s so good! I have no clue what he is singing about, but this song really gets me going!
Westkust – Cotton Skies
What again?! Yes, they are that good, listen and you will see.
Nick Waterhouse – Wreck the Rod
The slightly forced, slightly early and slightly too loud “Love” sung by the backing vocals is just brilliant! In fact, the whole tune is!
Södra Sverige – Jag ska aldrig bli kär igen
The low volume noise in the background like a threat of violence really elevates this tune with – as always with Alkberg – beautiful and skewed melody!
Wet – Old Bone
With a special talent for melodies, Wet surprised me with this acoustic laid back tune. I really like what they have done with the overdubbing of her voice, one in each ear and a subtle harmony in the middle. It feels like she is whispering in my right ear – and I love it!
Trade Wind – No King but Me
On the edge, alternative rock with a hint of emo – it’s just a great piece of music all around!
Club Night – Village
This lo-fi with this delicate and sincere voice really shines and is a clear
Buck Meek – Halo Light
With one of the last years best albums Meek is back with the saddest tune of the year and as always with Buck, it’s utterly beautiful.
Durand Jones & The Indications – Long Way Home
Pom Poko – Honey
