ODESZA‘s new album is finally out and most definitely at the top of my list for the week.
Jack White of The White Stripes, Ben Harper, Dawes, Beach Bunny, Peach Fuzz and Pool Kids all drop albums this week, and new singles from Caribou‘s Dan Snaith, and Billie Eilish.
Also, since it’s summer, and I am always up for some chillout downtempo and chillhouse at the beach, Marc Hartman has a new album as well.
She & Him with a tribute album to Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys, who even appears on one of the tracks
John McEntire & Sam Prekop of The Sea and Cake, and Tortoise fame, are out with a 4 song electronic ambient album.
RZA will always get a listen because of Wu-Tang Clan
There’s also a new Bananarama album (??) but I’m not including it in this playlist. I’m still curious enough to listen to it though.Worth mentioning.
Happy weekend and happy listening….
Last Week’s Distilled Gems:
Beth Orton, Death Cab for Cutie, FKA twigs all delivered the goods last week, but the Black Thought Danger Mouse Kiwanuka single was on fire.
The Robert Luis comp, beabadoobee and Spring Summer were very good.
