In the words of David Bowie, here at Radio 1190 there are seems to be a whole bunch of ch-ch-ch-changes. Our beloved mustachioed Music Director is headed west into the “real world”, if there is such a thing. Though it is hard to see this goofball go, we will not stop to continue the fantastic work that he has provided these past two years. And with that let’s celebrate this new era with new friends, new experiences and most importantly, new music!
After dropping his previous record label, XL Recordings, Willis Earl Beal decided to do it his own way and release his new album Experiments in Time all by himself. Stripping away even more of the textures from past releases, Beal has released his most somber and minimalist album to date. If you’re looking for some of the most haunting and intimate soul music ever recorded look no further than Experiments in Time.
Out from the ashes of the now-disbanded Rilo Kiley, Jenny Lewis is back and poppier than ever, but in a good way. With just enough sunshine and plenty of confidence, The Voyager is a strong follow-up to 2008’s Acid Tongue. This new record is not only aesthetically enjoyable; it’s also a heavily cathartic release that any music lover can fall in love with.
Now out on Dead Oceans recordings, Bear in Heaven return with their signature mix of post-rock and electronics on their fourth LP entitled Time is Over One Day Old. Taking this record into their own hands, front-man Jon Philpot handle’s the production side of things to make this release all their own.
Other additions include:
The Wytches – Annabel Dream Reader
The Neo-Kalashnikovs -Turn The Tables
Spider Bags - Frozen Letter
