This is super late and I’m already running late on October albums – nearly two weeks of vacation in October will do that to a blog’s listening duties. Only nine albums this month, although I listened to plenty more. I … Continue reading

Listen: Central Heat Exchange – “Cold” [2021]

Wanted to feature Chicago band Central Heat Exchange, which I found while trawling through the releases of September 2021. Really dug the track “Cold”, that has some crushing distorted guitars + percussion mixed with dreamy background vocals and dream pop … Continue reading

Listen: DJ Seinfeld – “Tell Me One More Time” [2021]

DJ Seinfeld has mostly shucked his pigeonholing “lo-fi house” aesthetic that rocketed him to popularity in the late 10s on his great new album Mirrors (out now via Ninja Tune) but he maintains some of the crackly, R&B vocal sampling, percussive piano … Continue reading
