Although released back in June of 2017, we’re making “Mythological Beauty” by Brooklyn’s Big Thief our Best In Show for the week. Why? Firstly, its a cool tune, and secondly, they made a nice wintery video for the song. Their album, Capacity, will you warm you up, and it’s available now from Saddle Creek Records. Visit bigthief.net for more info.
Our first Best In Show for 2018 kicks off with the off-kilter, post punk influenced sounds of Omni, out of Atlanta. “Southbound Station” can be heard on their second album, Multi Task, available now from the Trouble In Mind label. For more information visit omniatl.bandcamp.com.
We go back to 2015 for this week’s Best In Show from Courtney Barnett, “Boxing Day Blues (Revisited)“. Courtney has had a deservedly fantastic 2017 thanks to the success of Lotta Sea Lice, the album she made with Kurt Vile. We wish Courtney, Kurt, you and everyone, nothing but the best of holidays, and the happiest of new years! Thanks for listening.
Our latest Best In Show finds us visiting Detroit with the delightfully straight-up indie pop sounds of newcomer, Anna Burch. “Tea-Soaked Letter” will be on Burch’s debut long player, Quit The Curse, available in early February from the Polyvinyl label. For more information visit annaburchmusic.com.
This week’s Best In Show comes via Los Angeles and new electronic trio, Lo Moon. “Thorns” sort of sounds like Peter Gabriel or Tears For Fears covering The Blue Nile, and we’re definitely down with that. For more info visit lomoonofficial.com.
This week’s Best In Show is from former Haircut 100 frontman, Nick Heyward. From Woodland Echoes, his first album in nearly two decades, “The Stars” sounds as if he hasn’t lost a step! For more information visit nickheyward.com.
It’s Thanksgiving week, but our Best In Show selections never stop. This week it’s “Black & White” from Glaswegian band, Catholic Action. The guitar-heavy tune can be found on their debut album, In Memory Of, available now. For more information visit facebook.com/catholicactionband.
We’re loving the minimal “Baby Luv” from London native, Nilüfer Yanya, so we’ve made it this week’s Best In Show. Available as a single now, this is just the beginning for Yanya. For more information visit niluferyanya.com.
This week’s Best In Show is out of Northern Ireland. The beautiful “Downtown” is from Lilla Vargen (“little wolf” in Swedish), and it’s her version of a song originally done by Canada’s Majical Clouds. How’s that for an international stew? For more information visit facebook.com/lillarvargen.
