Playing tracks by
Ela Orleans, Doldrums, Wet Illustrated, Pyramid Vriatra, Quaker Parents and more.
There’s quite a bit of guitar this week. Nova Scotia’s masters of cracked indie pop Quaker Parents make a return, along with five combined minutes of bouncing garage surf pop from Fidlar and Hollows, plus an outstanding, (and previously unheard) track from the imminent debut album from True Panther’s Wet Illustrated.
Sufjan fans might be fond of underground lo-fi folk man Little Kid, alongside a somewhat topical pick from the new Sea Pinks record.
There’s also something meaty and electronic from a remote corner of Russia courtesy of Art Crime, the weird, warped and sprawling future hip hop of Pyramid Vritra, an electrifying cover of Portishead’s Chase The Tear by No Pain in Pop’s Doldrums, and the very (very) welcome return of Ela Orleans, who provides what I think might be my favourite ever New Noise opener.
Oh, and I also need your opinion about some music that I can’t quite make up my mind about. I’m anticipating an extreme response either way.
