Been listening to this Ethan Gruska album on repeat since yesterday:


He's been working as a producer for Phoebe Bridgers & also has a collab with her on this album

If you like this album, please please please check out his previous album, Slowmotionary. It was released in 2017 (same year as Goodnight Rhonda Lee) and I think about choosing it for my N&G AOTM month. It is a minimalistic and stunningly beautiful album. It isn't right for every mood but it is absolutely perfect for *that* mood you're in. That chill, melancholy, grey mood.

I'm waiting for this (it's out today) and I'm resisting from streaming it....
but the reviews are VERY VERY GOOD!

bump! It's Friday! What's new that I should be listening to?
New Moses Boyd is great. Orchestre Baobab - Mohammadou Bamba is out on Juno, possibly my favourite African record ever (I had thought the release date was next week). I also enjoyed Seven Wonders, an Australian compo of their soul and jazz scene. And finally Strut's second compilation of the amazing Caribbean label Debs International is out today.

BTW I'm checking out that Venetian Snares you recommended - it's bonkers, but in a good way. What I don't like about a lot of electronica is the repetition so it doesn't fall down on that. Needs another couple of listens, I feel...

Is the Moses Boyd out today? I've got that on pre-order.

Read about the album somewhere like wiki, it's a crazy concept too.

I don’t know if I’ve ever heard a Tame Impala track.
if you heard anything from Tame Impala it was probably the song Elephant, but maybe didn't realize it was a Tame Impala song. they're definitely a great band, I haven't listened to the new album yet but I am very much looking forward to listening to it!

I quite like it tbh but to each their own.
Singles were great. Borderline and It Might Be Time are up there with my favorite Tame Impala tracks ever, but a lot of the middle sounded like filler and couldn't keep my interest.

So what you're saying is it was a Tame Impala album? 👀
Hey ohhhhh!

I need to give it a couple listens through, but right now it makes me think of Innerspeaker: more a vibe than a set of distinct songs. I like the sound of a lot of it, it's very disco (and the opening track reminds me of Sparks' Tryouts for the Human Race), but it's not very hook-heavy.
