Physical Therapy – Martin Crane
Image via Twitter
Also a member of Austin indie-folk band Brazos, Physical Therapy marks the solo debut for Martin Crane. “Gunk of Stars” is an 80’s dance-trip that I simply adore. There are subtle hints of trap, which somehow complement the retro sound, as Crane croons about mushrooms and fossilized dinosaurs . The album is available for purchase on ITunes through INSCAPE.
Prowler – Pye Corner Audio
Today the vinyl press for Pye Corner Audio’s Prowler is released. The title song displays a lush, progressive, and haunting space-house sound that I could see being played in a dark club on Neptune. The release is out on More Than Human Records with a digital drop date of Dec. 11.
Junun – Shye Ben Tzur, Jonny Greenwood & The Rajasthan Express
I previously mentioned this project in a special feature exploring the solo work of Jonny Greenwood. As Radiohead are preparing for their upcoming release, this is proving to be a busy year for Greenwood. The chemistry between the artist, Israeli singer Shye Ben Tzur, and Indian instrumentalists/vocalists known collectively as The Rajasthan Express is really something beautiful and uplifting. It is available for purchase on Nonesuch.
