FEAST ON SCRAPS – JULY 2022

Here is my portion of things I listened to or watched obsessively this past month. Out of fascination or curiosity, I spent days on the following: ONE SONG__________________________ Fennec – bnb [2022] Bossa nova as religion, exotically melancholic and somewhere between Earl Sweatshirt, J Dilla and Clams Casino. That’s how you’ll start to assimilate him. The Austin-based ex-lawyer-turned-DJ seems to be the (better) non-homophobic and … Continue reading FEAST ON SCRAPS – JULY 2022

Lost Gems: Boat Club – Caught The Breeze (2007)

On a beach. With the setting sun. I will anchor here… in the Sound. The friendly wind loses me at sea. Seagulls away. The sand is green, and your dreams may be purple.

Lost Gems: Appletothesky – To Sing You Apple Trees (2006)

Norwegian singer-songwriter, record producer, musician, and novelist, Jenny Hval, is no stranger to experimenting with different soundscapes and approaches when it comes to music. Her album vary between each release in both tones and themes, each one seeming like a newly envisioned concept building on the lyrical world that Hval crafts with an intelligent grace. However, out of all of her discography I found myself resonating towards … Continue reading Lost Gems: Appletothesky – To Sing You Apple Trees (2006)
