The women who defied convention to ignite the ’80s underground - defined by eight records from the new wave, experimental rock and pop scenesNoted, 11 May 2022, 08:30
Rosa Anschütz - Peak
The third track from the reluctant Pop-mistress Rosa Anschütz, taken from forthcoming album Goldener Strom, out on 27th May via Ellen Allien's BPitch label.
I've put together three massive Buy Music Club compilations with all my fav tracks of 2021:
Charlie Charlie - Save Us feat. Mapei
From an album of dreamy summer Pop Save Us (featuring Mapei) is my highlight. The band is Charlie Charlie, a new side project from Bella Boo and Chords and the album is called Little Things. Like a gentle summer breeze, it won't fail to warm and uplift the tired and weary. Thank me later.
박혜진 Park Hye Jin - Y DONT U (feat. Clams Casino & Take A Daytrip)
Y DON’T U is tasteful catchy Pop from 박혜진 Park Hye Jin who teams up with Clams Casino (A$AP Rocky, Mac Miller, FKA Twigs) and NYC duo Take A Daytrip (Travis Scott & Kid Cudi, Lil Nas X). Out on Ninja Tune.
Polo & Pan - Anu Kuni
High quality music from the Parisian Pop duo with Anu Kuni, hopefully the first track lifted from a forthcoming album.
How Authentic Is Pop-Feminism? - Beyoncé, pop cultural feminism and the dilemma between progress and exploitation.Noted, 28 Apr 2021, 19:52
I've been enjoying the dulcet vocals of Lindsay Reamer on her melodic new EP Lucky.Noted, 20 Feb 2021, 13:55
Sufjan Stevens - America
Closing track from Stevens' new album The Ascension is the powerful statement: America.
Il Quadro di Troisi - Raggio verde
As Il Quadro di Troisi, Andrea Noce (Eva Geist) and Donato Scaramuzzi (Donato Dozzy) have teamed up to make a delightful electronic Pop album, with hints of Suzanne Vega and Carla dal Forno. It's challenging to pick a highlight from the self-titled album, as all nine tracks are simply superb, but Raggio verde has a certain eighties bent, which appeals to a man of my age.Noted, 29 Oct 2020, 08:02
Two Tribes - Cruel Sensuality
Cruel Sensuality: rousing Electronic Pop from London-based trio Two Tribes.
Milo Korbenski - Afterlove
HAAi - Head Above The Parakeets
Fusing an electronic Pop sensibility with madcap drums and treated vocals, the hazy vibe that emerges is like a drug-induced state. Put Your Head Above The Parakeets is the lead track from HAAi’s forthcoming four-track EP, out on 12” and digitally on 11 September 2020.
