Found Music

From all the other end-of-year-lists here's a few gems I found

Murman Tsuladze - la flemme de dans

Georgian artists living in Paris... discovered via The Quietus's best tracks of 2020

Keeley Forsyth - Debris

Skeletal yet robust singer/songwriter collaborative compositions, minimal instrumentation, exposed.

Scalping - Deadlock

The sweet spot where Punk and Electronica breed. Appeared on Bleep's top 100 tracks of 2020.

Sault - Untitled (Black Is)

Everyone's fav album of 2020 (yeah no yeah?) definitely hit the spot for me with its emotive lyrics and great songwriting. I missed it when it came out but can understand how it resonated with BLM rising. I love the bit in Sorry Ain't Enough, around the 1:15 where the bassline comes in... oh yeah, that just kills me... and then they tease us again at 3:15 but leave us hanging. Still name your price atm.

Euphemia Rise

Belgian newcomer Wim Lankriet as Euphemia Rise with scuzzy-sounding, post-Rock Electronica, inspired by Syd Barrett.

dumama + kechou - buffering juju

A meeting of minds produces a delightful album of contemporary African songs with a political message.

KMRU - Peel

Kenyan artist Joseph Kamaru was ubiquitous in 2020, with his Ambient and Experimental tracks appearing on compilations all over the place (I know this because when he first appeared on my radar I searched my music library, and he was everywhere!) but it was his album Peel (released via Editions Mego) that drew the greatest attention, and rightly so, its long, drawn-out Ambient narratives wringing emotion from every nuanced sound.

Josey Rebelle - Josey In Space

Quality selector doing her stuff.

Sarah Davachi - Play The Ghost

From Davachi's album Cantus, Descant, Play The Ghost was, head-and-shoulders, the standout track, simply because of the fragile, haunting vocals. Nice album, beautiful track.

Katie Gately - Allay

I found this track on Bleep's 100 best tracks. The new signing for Houndstooth makes theatrical folky future Pop and Allay exemplifies this. For fans of Faten Kanaan.
