MUSIC:reflections for 2022-07-15

This week we have new singles from Beth Orton, Death Cab for Cutie, an excellent collab single from Black Thought & Danger Mouse feat. Michael Kiwanuka, Santigold and FKA twigs.

For albums: beabadoobee drops her highly anticipated follow-up, another volume in the excellent Shapes series by Robert Luis, and interesting debut from Spring Summer (produced by Jenny Lee Lindberg of Warpaint)

Also, I just saw that last week’s email failed to send, so it’s here

Happy weekend and happy listening…


Last Week’s Distilled Gems:

Apollo Brown‘s instrumental albums was one of the best chillhop albums I’ve heard in a long time.

Laura Veirs and Luxxury both were solid efforts and worth listening.

Hot Chip, Daphni and the Soulwax remix of Wet Leg all stood out as well.
