[Music] Damon & Naomi – Damon & Naomi with Ghost


Damon & Naomi have done a kindness by offering their back catalog on Bandcamp for free, essentially (though it’s good practice to spend a buck here and there as a token of thanks).

In this disc, the duo team with Masaki Batoh’s legendary troupe, Ghost, though their presence is not nearly as noticeable as one would hope. Still, the stars of the show make a gentle, ambling piece of slowcore.

[Music] Nick Lowe – Jesus of Cool (Reissue) and His Back Catalog on Bandcamp


Some happy news today. It looks as if the majority of Nick Lowe’s back catalog has been reissued on Bandcamp.

I featured Jesus of Cool because it was my introduction to his work, and still holds up as a classic power-pop album.

[Music] Blankenberge – Radiogaze (LP 2017)

Today’s pleasant surprise is Blankenberge, a dreampop/shoegaze band out of Russia. Not quite My Bloody Valentine at their peak, but pretty decent nonetheless.

[Music] Akute – Płastyka

Though it’s listed as post-rock on their Bandcamp page, Akute would probably fit rather well in the indie and shoegazer music genres as well.

[Music] Refugee Project Band – The Streets Without Names

Unfortunately, there’s no embedding capability for my friend Zdenko Colic’s music, but if you like shoegaze and rock combined, this may be worth checking out.

[Music] Marty Willson-Piper – The Sniper

Marty Willson-Piper is the former guitarist of The Church. Though I’m bummed he left the band, he’s still making some rather solid music these days.

[Music] Maraca – Time In Time

I’m lucky enough to be served some amazing dishes by Premek over at Indies Records from Prague. The Czech Republic’s coolest label put out another gem with Maraca, who produce a type of indie rock that should be appealing to a wide audience. Mellow and very tasteful stuff, especially with the fine vocal work turned in by Gabriela Vermelho.

[Music] Johanna Warren – Nūmūn

Johanna Warren is a folk singer from Portland, Oregon, who caught my ear. There’s a very sweet tone to her voice that I’m not used to hearing from other American folkies. This is my first encounter with her work, and I’d say I’m looking forward to hearing more from her.
