Fresh post-punk, post-riotgrrl, crispy clean femme rock outta Manchester (think: Kate Bush and the Gossip). Her debut Nerve Up comes out Feb. 22nd, on Warp.
You can download her lead single “Immaterial” off of Warps website
So despite a bunch of spite being thrown at the year-end-list phenomenon by some of the more ‘serious critics’ this year, I bring you my list of my favorite albums made in 2009.
Let me know what you think.
10. Kaito – Trust
Not exactly anything new for the Japanese producer, but man his music makes me feel good.
9. Black Moth Super Rainbow – Eating Us
Slightly less bubble-gum trippy drippy, but still just as weird as some of their older stuff. Dig.
Beach House finally win’s me over with this track off of their upcoming album Teen Dream. I absolutely adore the bridge, and the abandon with which Victoria Legrand asks “how much longer can you play with fire, huh? huh? huh?” – oh so gut-wrenching.
Check it out
Beach House – Better Times
The latest episode of futuremusics magazine Resident Advisor’s podcast series is a Halloween themed selection from Fever Ray’s Karin Dreijer Andersson and other members of her current touring band.
As you would expect, it’s awesome. It starts off with and instrumental, abstract Neil Young instrumental. Uh, yeah.
RA178 – Fever Ray
Absolutely love the way this one peels out of its breakdowns. This is a surefire set opener.
Boy 8-Bit – Cricket Scores
