According to James, Music Director
- Pinegrove – Cardinal [Run for Cover]
Must listen / Perfect songwriting / That is all I will say
- Lust For Youth – Compassion [Sacred Bones]
New Order-influenced europop that will make you feel cool perhaps
- Essaie Pas – Demain est une autre nuit [DFA]
Francophile minimal goth techno YOU’RE WELCOME
- Jesu/Sun Kil Moon – Jesu/Sun Kil Moon [Calo Verde/Rough Trade]
Pseudo(?)-sensitive 49 y/o man reads from diary while 46 y/o dad plays industrial guitar and/or ambient music beneath said musings.
- Puce Mary – The Spiral [Posh Isolation]
- Cellars – Phases [Manifesto]
80’s jams produced by Ariel Pink: dark disco for days//cash for chill
- Sound of Ceres – Nostalgia for Infinity [Joyful Noise]
- Wild Nothing – Life of Pause [Captured Tracks/Bella Union]
Worth the wait, WN delivers us a diverse record full of beautiful gems
- Explosions in the Sky – The Wilderness [Temporary Residence Limited/Bella Union]
Pretty songs that each rise from ash within the span of about 5:00 min
- Teen – Love Yes [Carpark]
Like a dancy Cocteau Twins, but with intelligible lyrics

James, watch out! There’s a typo in the name of the Essaie Pas album – I think it should be “nuit” and not “neut”. Otherwise, dope list and keep on recommending the good tunes!
Good catch! Always appreciate a watchful eye and some nice words.
