The feature album this week is the detuned celestial pop of Spacemoth, with No Past No Future. Utilising stacks of vintage synthesisers, reversed samples and the hazy vocals of Maryam Qudus, this is a highly evocative debut album from the Oakland producer and multi-instrumentalist.
Next up we head south on the Pacific Coast Highway to LA for another debut album, this time the self-titled LP from easy-rolling jangle rockers Color Green. This is an uplifting rock and roll album with a classic touch and a panoramic vibe, inspired by the likes of Allman Brothers and Mapache.
Staying in LA, another favourite of 2SER (with multiple Feature Albums), is Ty Segall. His new album Hello, Hi! is laden with psychedelic folk and jangly harmonics spread across often minimalistic arrangements, phased guitars and Segall’s unique lyrical presence.
Jumping on the longhaul from LAX to SYD, we’re heading back home for some fantastic new albums on rotation from Australian artists. First up is from Sydney’s Jitwam, whose bright and infectious street soul and jazz-funk packs in a myriad of stylistic variations and treats on Third. There’s an underpinning sunny, feelgood rnb vibe throughout, which sit alongside modern club workouts with a global sound angle where electronically produced beats gel with live instrumentation seamlessly. Fans of Amp Fiddler and Jamie Lidell will appreciate much of this album, and it’s a highly accomplished one.
Melbourne quartet Eggy are solid favourites of 2SER and their sophomore album With Gusto, is a determinedly oddball art-rock album that is filled with leftfield arrangements and playful sonic experimentation. Irreverently jerky and none-too-serious in parts, it frequently locks into a warm and hazy aesthetic on many tracks. Favourites tracks like A toast to good health and Fill in the blanks have been playing regularly in the lead up, and we’re excited to be able to share more with you on the airwaves from today.
Also going into rotation across the week on 2SER this week are some strong local and Australian singles with the latest from the likes of Indigo Sparke, The Buoys, Library Siesta, Free Time, Slag Queen and much more.
