Recommended Albums: March 2019

We had a surplus of GREAT music this month so I did something controversial and went over my 10 album limit. Lovely variety of moods and textures on this list. Long-established artists and brand new pups on the scene. It’s a celebration of all things. I hope you enjoy!

Ana Roxanne – ~~~ [Leaving Records]
Laying in a sunflower garden & gazing at the sky, at first through a gentle summer rainstorm, until the clouds part and the sunset casts a lavender glow upon your face.

Andrew Bird – My Finest Work Yet [Loma Vista]
Pulling a particular book off the shelf in a public library reveals a secret passageway to an ancient scholar continuously writing history books about various American small towns. Then you throw them a birthday party for reaching the 500-year mark.

CHAI – PUNK [Burger]
Eating every sugary cereal at the grocery store and the resulting sugar high vibrates you into an alternate dimension of hyper-futuristic new wave Olympic ceremonies.

Chris Cohen – Chris Cohen [Captured Tracks]
Everyone at a party in a new town looks vaguely familiar, only for you to realize they’re all friends of friends you’ve only heard about in dreams.

The Comet Is Coming – Trust In The Lifeforce Of The Deep Mystery [Impulse!]
The year is 2276 and the Earth’s elders are holding gauntlets of strength and will to decide the fate of the gilded time warrior.

Elizabeth Colour Wheel – Nocebo [The Flenser]
A chronicle of life after getting the notice that you’ll be pulled into hell in three days time.

Elsa Hewitt – Citrus Paradisi [ERH]
All city lights leave a permanent trail behind them as you skate through the streets, weaving quilts of light on a warm summer evening.

FACS – Lifelike [Trouble In Mind]
A troubling gale blows through a beached freighter, making the rusted joints of the vessel shriek in agony.

Hand Habits – placeholder [Saddle Creek]
Being occupied with swirling thoughts of regret throughout the night, finally finding solace once the sun comes up and you collapse from exhaustion and relief.

Marble Arch – Children Of The Slump [GÉOGRAPHIE]
Watching VHS footage of yourself as a child but you’re a lot cooler than you remember.

Maria Somerville – All My People [self-released]
Getting lost in a giant warehouse full of endless, billowing white curtains while landscapers plant fresh sod down wherever you walk.

Nilüfer Yanya – Miss Universe [ATO]
A personal AI companion becomes your best friend in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

Snapped Ankles – Stunning Luxury [The Leaf Label]
A band of desert weirdos get partially beamed up into a UFO, leaving their conscious states floating between an Earth reality and one in the distant cosmos.

Solange – When I Get Home [Columbia]
Your commute after work becomes so routine that you experience lucid dreams of passing through walls, floating objects and talking graffiti & advertisements before getting home.
