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

Spotlight + Album review: Bendik – Liv (2022)

Bendik is one of our favorite Norwegian artists, first coming into our attention with her song “Aldri”, featured in the 2012 film “Flukt (Escape)”, which starred Ingrid Bolsø Berdal (Westworld) in a captivating villainous turn. “Aldri” was a stunning composition, a combination of rock and electronic, with shifts in rhythm, a killer electric bass and a soaring voice that oscillated between soothing chants, rich harmonies … Continue reading Spotlight + Album review: Bendik – Liv (2022)

Album Review: Braids – Shadow Offering (2020)

Braids is a Canadian electronic/art-rock trio, consisting of Raphaelle-Standell Preston, Austin Tufts and Taylor Smith.

With unpredictable song structures and heavy use of polyphony, Braids went … Continue reading Album Review: Braids – Shadow Offering (2020)
