Every end of the month we are releasing a round up of reviews of recent releases that moved us the most. These are the personal takes on hand-curated gems our team dug up (and the occasional chart topper). This time with Indigo Sparke, Ultraflex, Bonny Light Horseman, Charlotte Dos Santos, Skullcrusher, Dry Cleaning, Pip Millett and Loyle Carner. What will be your favourite?
The Australian singer and songwriter Indigo Sparke releases her sophomore record "Hysteria" following the minimalist debut "Echo". Writer Anna Stich meets the artist for the second time and talks about grieving, breathing, and the history of pathological sexism entangled with hysteria.
Another year goes by and it was... well, definitely different than the last one but still quite weird. The second consecutive Covid year was a rollercoaster ride of emotions where hope and despair went hand in hand and we're surely finished yet. Luckily, this resulted in quite outstanding musical releases which gave us much needed comfort and distraction in these difficult times. Today, we're honouring the fifty records that meant the most to us in the past twelve months.
It's been a turbulent and confusing year in many ways. But there's one thing the second pandemic year in a row hasn't been lacking of: plenty of good music to get us through these months of uncertainty between hope and despair. And for those of you who might have lost track in the daily storm of new releases we got you covered once again with a mighty list that includes those tracks that we'll connect with 2021 forever
Australian songwriter Indigo Sparke released her wonderful debut album "Echo" in February 2021 and to celebrate its vinyl issue, NBHAP author Anna Stich got a chance to talk to her about what informs her music and how she translates her perception of the world into sound. The result is a detailed and insightful account of the present moment.
Every Friday music fans are faced with the same burning question: What to listen to from the sheer endless sea of new albums, EPs and other releases?
