We’re through the hinterland of Dec/Jan release twilight and there’s some amazing new records out, many of which are from previous AOTM favourites. So here’s a little rundown from @whyohwhyohwhy of some picks.
Arlo Parks – Softly
A bit of a change-up, musically. Pace, a bit of a breaks/d’n’b feel and a big piano. Lovely.
Yard Act – Fixer Upper
It’s hardly novel to big these guys up, but this is a great track and brilliant lyrics.
Snail Mail – Valentine
I stumbled across this in my search for a Feb AOTM (before we Album clubbed it) and it’s really great guitar music, in the way that a lot isn’t around any more. The album is worth really checking out.
Mano Le Tough – Either Way
It’s like the album never really stopped….
The Weather Station – Endless Time
They did a new song. No one knew they were doing it. We all win.
