Talking new Sparklehorse, the return of The Chemical Brothers, and The xx's Romy's debut.
Excellent write up on 3 albums I’ve been eagerly anticipating. I’d heard early singles from Sparklehorse and Romy and loved both. So glad to hear that the albums are equally as good.
I’m with you on Sparklehorse (Mark Linkous). He/They became a bit of an obsession for me. His death really gutted me as I had connected with his music so deeply. Glad the album he’d almost finished is seeing the light of day.
Lotsa house/techno/trance today: Currently have “Skipping Like A Stone” on repeat. I’ve also been listening to Kerala Dust’s “Violet Drive,” some Paul Keeley, and Overmono’s “So U Kno.”
You taught me something i did not know about Sparklehorse. Did not realize he had offed himself many years ago.
Oh, wow, Romy! New to me! Great stuff!
