With so much good music coming through thick and fast, it’s easy for new music to drop online and go unnoticed. To help prevent this, we’ve picked five new releases that you need to hear. Stream music from Annabel (lee), Anteloper, Arp Frique, Cosmo Sheldrake and Wing Vilma. If you like what you hear, support the artists.
Annabel (lee) – From This Side
Composer and producer Richard Ellis, with his wife, writer and singer Sheila Brown Ellis, follow last year’s album “The Cleansing” by weaving a tragically beautiful contrast between glowing, warm tonalities and otherworldly lyrical vignettes. Another fantastic release from the duo and the Youngblood label.
Anteloper – Kuda
Anteloper is the electric brainchild of Jaimie Branch and Jason Nazary. With deep rhythmic passages, telepathic improvisations and simple melodic negotiations, the pair pushes forward, swinging its horns all the while. Full of free expression this experimental and engaging record will undoubtedly be among our end of year list.
Arp Frique – Welcome To The Colorful World of Arp Frique
The Colorful World of Arp Frique is the exotic and super funky debut album of Niels Nieuborg. A varied and always interesting album that offers deep rewards on repeated listens.
Cosmo Sheldrake – The Much Much How How & I
Vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and producer Cosmos Sheldrake unveils his highly anticipated debut full-length. For those who like their music oddball and slightly left of centre.
Wing Vilma – Safe By Night
The debut LP from Wing Vilma pushes the edges of electronic music, exploring the nonconventional jazz structures and grooves in an electronic context. It’s one of those albums that you’ll have on repeat again and again…
