Mattiel – Bye Bye (2018)

“I’m not sure at what point ‘Tarantino’ turned from a famed director into a genre of music, but here we are in 2018 with a record that can comfortably be described as peak Tarantino. ‘Mattiel’ is a familiar cocktail of dusty horns, dustbowl blues and Dusty Springfield-style ’60s pop that almost screams out for accompanying widescreen vista or Mexican standoff. There’s even the odd production choice of ending songs while they’re in the process of fading out, as if to cut to the next scene.” Source

Minami Deutsch – Tunnel (2018)


“Minami Deutsch is back at it again with their latest LP “With Dim Light”. Whilst softening their sound and cushioning the blow, you can expect a more profound diversity in their sound, whilst retaining the principle ingredients that make Minami Deutsch so great such as their signature fuzz, thumping bass and dream like vocals. There is a heavier experimentation in regards to genre exploration. With hints of post punk and nods to late 60s psychedelic rock, this shows that Minami Deutsch is willing to push musical boundaries further whilst retaining a clever songwriting ability to achieve this album.” Bandcamp

Cecil Taylor – Bemsha Swing (1956)

“Cecil Taylor: Pianist, poet, free jazz pioneer — died 4/5/18 in his home.
A truly distinctive voice on piano, Cecil Taylor was a free jazz composer, performer, and improvisationist whose approach to the instrument often had people likening his style to playing a set of “88 tuned drums.” Starting his solo career in the ’50s, Taylor’s unconventional approach often had him swimming upstream as he waited for music critics and listeners to catch up to the sounds he was making. His career hit a groove in the ’70s, which included a performance in Jimmy Carter’s White House, and Taylor released an impressive number of albums over a career that stretched from 1956 to 2010.” Source
