The third year of Warm Visions’ Recommended Albums has commenced! I’m still having fun making these, so I see no reason to stop. 2018 started off alright for the most part. Lots of album announcements and primers for things to come. I can’t see too many of the records I’ve listed here lasting with me for the whole year, but who knows? Stranger things have happened. I hope you really dig these, though. If you’re still trying to catch up after getting to all your 2017 music, this should be a good first step.
Daniel Avery – Slow Fade EP [Mute]
Watching space debris collide in rhythm.
Ilyas Ahmed – Closer To Stranger [Mie Music]
An old quilt with dead grass tucked in its folds is found in the attic.
Lou Rebecca – Lou Rebecca EP [Holodeck Records]
A multi-colored light ball follows you eternally – life as a roller rink.
NADINE – oh my [Father/Daughter Records]
Watching a sunbathing animal shift its napping position throughout the day.
Negative Gemini – Bad Baby EP [100% Electronica]
Neon light reflect off dark pools of tears collected on a dusty, linoleum floor.
No Age – Snares Like A Haircut [Drag City]
Once a month you wake up washed ashore a different, trash-covered island and you have to find your way home.
Palmbomen II – Memories Of Cindy [Beats In Space]
A secret commune in the sewers holds amazing raves, magazine reading parties and VHS movie cry sessions.
Shame – Songs Of Praise [Dead Oceans]
The Midas Touch except with fire.
