April is shaping up to be an exciting month for new music, kicking off with Ramona, the third album from Naarm’s own Grace Cummings. The singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist stuns listeners with an incredibly powerful vocal performance, which soars against a lavish orchestral soundscape. A visceral yet theatrical exploration of grief, emotion and self-destruction, Ramona is a record that refuses to soften for anyone, full of humanity and perfect for fans of Weyes Blood or Cate Le Bon.

The feature album this week at 2SER is A La Sala, the fourth album from Texas-based trio Khruangbin. The band’s name comes from the Thai word for “aeroplane”, whilst the record’s title translates from Spanish as “enter the room”. A La Sala shimmers with sunkissed jazz-funk that coasts on beautiful grooves and rhythmic pulses, drawing on inspiration from West African disco and Latin funk. Airy and bright, Khruangbin’s first studio album in four years is one you won’t want to miss.

Shoegaze giants Ride are back this week with their seventh studio album, Interplay. The record brings icy synths, pianos, strings and space to the fore, interspersed with dreamy, ethereal lyrics. Underpinned by warm melodies and a summery sound, Interplay is an album that will no doubt appeal to fans of War On Drugs and Slowdive. 

This week also sees the release of a 22-track various artists compilation entitled Music for Palestine. An electronic feast, the record sees contributions from across all genres, including techno, jungle, ambient, IDM, glitch and more. Featuring artists from all around the world, all proceeds from Music for Palestine will go to Doctors Without Borders, who are currently providing life-saving services in Gaza despite being in extremely high-risk, volatile conditions.

As per usual, there’s a bunch of exciting new singles this week, including local releases from Midnight Karaoke (‘My Midnight’), Selfdivision (‘Our Love’) and The Pretty Littles (‘Australian Dream’). Elsewhere in Australia, beloved Meanjin quartet Girl and Girl have put out the title track from their debut album, ‘Mother’, and Frankston-based producer ESWB has dropped ‘The Rizz’, a hip-house style tune with a distinctly ‘90s groove. And for those not in the know, ESWB stands for Emotional Support Water Bottle!
