Spirit World Field Guide
Aesop Rock | Rhymesayers
New York rapper Aesop Rock brings us his latest and eight studio album Spirit World Field Guide. Acting as a survival guide through another world, Aesop Rock becomes the narrator speaking of hallucinations and survival tips as we are transported through his alternative dimension.
English band Tunng drums up another experimental album DEAD CLUB, a concept album about death and grief. Don’t let that put you off, as its takes on those subjects with light and gentle folktronic beats.
In an incredibly ear-catching style, English alternative band APRE releases it’s debut album Always In My Head. Its summer party vibes will cheer up any of those winter blues, and may even get you dancing with the addictive tunes.
Melbourne based Hachiku (aka Anika Ostendorf) releases her debut album I’ll Probably Be Asleep, filled to the brim with dreamy escapist indie pop. Layered with a ton of ambience, Hachiku’s breathy vocals will send you into sleepy world.
Moving on from her duo band with her brother, Bristolian Katy J Pearson’s Return acts as a debut-comeback album all in one. Bring folk vibes from America’s south, her fast paced tracks conjure images of driving along a lonely dusty highway.
Best known for the early 2020 song Superlonely, Kiwi alternative artist BENEE releases her first album Hey u x. Waving between alt-rock to hip hop to house, BENEE displays a smorgasbord of talents in her debut.
