Three short albums with three short reviews.
Album: A Simple Reflection
Artist: Cold Beat
Release Date: 24 August 2018
- Love is a Stranger
Thoughts: Ethereal vocals over synthpop beats transport the listener back to the 80s. Yes, these are all Eurythmics’ covers.
Release Date: October 26, 2018
- Salt in the Wound
- Ketchum, ID
Thoughts: Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers, and Lucy Dacus formed a super group but only recorded 6 songs. Strong harmonies and rich instrumentation make one wish for more.
Artist: Aphex Twin
Release Date: September 14, 2018
Favorite Tracks: All of them.
Thoughts: Richard D. James mixes blips, whirrs, and beats into an ineffable whole. I really like it and can’t explain why.
