Magdalena Bay - Mercurial World

This album is the pure, distilled essence of Pop. It's catchy, at times very bubblegummy and unabashedly confident. And damn is the production smooth on that one. Layers upon layers of cascading synths, fx and sweet melodies. And then there are the seemless transitions. This album has fascinated me for a while now. Lots of nods to the 80s and 90s here and there, nothing entirely new, but assembled and arranged in such a charming and personal way. Can't help but love it.

Chilling before a C-Eve deejaying session later on. It's the kind of solemn and tranquil a Grinch like me can enjoy.

a version of Last Christmas that is still listenable :)

A recap of my pre-new year picks last week, cause I couldn't be arsed to post earlier:

Last Thursday

Yeule - Softscars

My contemporary pick. A nice blend of 90s Alt-rock riffs and current Electropop
sensibilities with a good deal of glitchy goodness.


Ida E Os Voltas - Self-Titled 1986 Demo

Great, underrated Brazillian Post-Punk.


And on NYE before heading out to a party:


No introduction needed. Just a really fine comfort listen I hadn't spun in a while. "By This River" is still one of the most heartrending songs ever.

A bunch of my friends are obsessed with this one, and while I thought it was alright, part of it just seemed a little too contrived or artificial to me? Like, it's very consciously being like "this is what excites the audience we want, so we'll do it". I liked Jane Remover's last record more for covering similar ground.

Carla Bozulich - Red Headed Stranger. Best song-by-song "cover" of a full album ever. Well, it's either this one or Pussy Galore's Exile On Main St...

For a free album it's pretty good, but while listening I do am tempted to hear some Rusty Crazy Horse!

Radiohead. Right now "Stop Whispering"

they label it as "depressive black metal". Even though I still don't really like this type of singing/screaming/whatever you call it, the music is great.

old timey metal


hahahaha while "o fortuna" is by now a supertired spooky signifier in movies, practically synonym with mr. diabolum himself (same as poor satie with his gymnopédie #1 overused and abused for a melancholy feel...) ... most of this recording is quite cheerful and almost dancy actually. and it's orff-approved! anyway, medieval aspirations aside, sounds to me more like bizet's choruses... and by the time it gets to cour d'amours it frequently gets quite lyrical. very fucking good. i used to have this very same cd ages ago
