Well you don’t need me to tell you how crazy March was for everyone. If your March wasn’t absolutely insane, one of the craziest months you’ve ever lived through, I’ve got to worry about your perception, or really worry about your life up until this point. We’ve been forced inside to finally listen to all he music that we’ve hoarded all these years. Thankfully, March yielded some pretty memorable and cathartic albums to help us get through all this. And of course, I cannot recommend enough that you follow through on all these Bandcamp samples and support the artists featured here! They deserve it!
Dogleg – Melee [Triple Crown Records]
When your head splits open from continued environmental stress and out comes a jet engine flame of repressed grief and anger.
FACS – Void Moments [Trouble In Mind]
Every time you try and leave your house you get instantly teleported back to being chained to your basement floor.
Hailu Mergia – Yene Mircha [Awesome Tapes From Africa]
Standing in an open doorway with the late morning sun pouring over you.
JFDR – New Dreams [White Sun]
Watching ice crystals gradually grow and form into mushroom-like organisms on an abandoned space station.
LEYA – Flood Dream [NNA Tapes]
A candle-lit seance in a murky swamp temple summons a primordial being made of mud.
Nap Eyes – Snapshot of a Beginner [Jagjaguwar]
A friendly game of baseball with friends helps everyone from the neighborhood catch up with each other.
R.A.P. Ferreira – purple moonlight pages [Ruby Yacht]
Retro video games mixing with google searches for abstract painters mixing with reclusive philosophers notes Apps mixing with pop culture mavens on a dusty canvas.
Sam Gendel – Satin Doll [Nonesuch]
A saxophone gets caught in a temporal rift, allowing transmissions and performances from the past, present and future to be played through it at the same time.
Waxahatchee – Saint Cloud [Merge]
The perfect summer weather that reminds you of all the best summer vacation memories from childhood.
Yumi Zouma – Truth Or Consequences [Polyvinyl]
An incredibly endearing bouncy haircut.
