Liz Brasher found her voice while singing in the choir of her all-Spanish church, and while her upbringing was full of gospel music, she quickly connected with Delta blues and soul after relocating to Memphis. On her debut album ‘Painted Image’ Brasher is speaking her truth and delivering it with some powerhouse and sonorous vocal work. An excellent debut showcasing some of the best influences from America’s South.
Producer Chaz Bear returns with his sixth album ‘Outer Peace’ under the Toro Y Moi moniker, which sees him at his funkiest. Buoyant electronic textures that take cues from France’s Daft Punk, and Wally Badarou. There’s some strikingly crisp production here which flow into tropical house, r’n’b and, even trap. A highly head-bopping and danceable affair.
And on Deerhunter’s latest, ‘Why Hasn’t Everything Already Disappeared?’, we find the band’s uneasy meditations on current realities; in the rise of far-right nationalism, and the destruction of our environment and human nature. It’s arrival comes at a poignant time, but there still lies a mellifluous charm we’ve come to known from the band.
And new singles from Panda Bear, Ex Hex, The Soul Movers, Laura Imbruglia (which comes with an album announce), and a collaboration between Karen O and Danger Mouse.
