"Flashing. Twenty two, this is the microphones. The album is called microphones in twenty twenty. This is the title cut, which is the entire album one long cut impure music's Lars Guttridge here for this. Hey, lars hey robin I new album from the microphones in seventeen years and as I said, it's one long cut fill album who is the microphones he's done a lot of a lot of other projects over the years particularly as Mount Eerie, but he's back now finally. Has the microphones got him to come back to this this moniker in this project seventeen years later but microphones especially in those early years was often about battling and create an universes that Phil had kind of like concocted kranj gestures about love in death and existence and microphones often made like big booming indie rock with lots of drums and distorted bass and weird drones and sound collages and. He definitely crafted his own sound, but he also crafted his own mythology, a mythology around the music and the themes that he inhabited. So the question is really why is fill out from planning out a record by the microphones and twenty twenty but who was the microphones and it's kind of reckoning of memory it's a wreck reckoning with history and him trying to make sense of heartbreak and life of evil and death. He is thinking about how cynical life is and how the Sun rises and sets separate day completely unaware of. Its participants and just does its thing and we keep returning to the same problems in the same issues. He doesn't have an answer and that's kind of the point of the microphones and Mount Aries for a long time. But he's coming out with a lot more history and nuance and I think he ever has. Yeah. I got the sense that he thought he wouldn't be in this place that he would have more answers by now. You know like he's he's in his early forties now and he's looking back and he says. Essentially he finds that he feels just like he did when he was twenty years old with this jumble of dreams that he's not sure we'll ever come. True. HOPE FOR THE FUTURE You know one moment things seem very sure and comfortable and the next moment he's completely miserable. That kind of makes sense. But the thing that I'll push back Connah's that maybe he's just coming through the cycle again and again I mean felt pass phrase of this record is there's no end. So he he is attempting to put meaning and to the giant meaningless as he calls it. And Berl during that, he says that he in his music finds that he keeps in. This is a quote from one of the lines in the song taking wide swipes at meaning. And I thought boys that ever true like you said Lars were all doing that. The microphones back with an album called the microphones in two thousand twenty. Thanks so much, Lars. Thanks Robin. All right one last record that we WANNA play for this week's new music. Friday at comes from the jazz. Saxophonist Emmanuel Wilkins is debut release is called Omega..

Ah Process was while she was pregnant she would biskra have like a little hand held recorder and just kind of like seeing made up Wolo buys and and these became kind of the genesis for songs not only before her To be a son but also as kind of a way late to remember the way she was before she had children and as a new dad. This record really resonated with me maybe not for the same reasons because it's much different being father than being a mother but I really connected with both the excitement and the terror becomes into becoming apparent and that's what this record really in fights and really kind of like understands sonically and she uses. Her voice uses guitar. She's little little organs and keyboards and drones. And sometimes it's noisy sometimes. It's beautiful.

"Ha slow fingertips so you had mentioned that tissue Amancio is one of the artists that was kind of about of your wheelhouse but you've found through different band camp rabbit holes but I'm I'm curious besides looking at album artwork what are some other methods that you use to find new music through this platform I e rely on the editorial arm now just I contribute but I actually am a fan of it and I read all the writers and I have discovered wildest albums just through the editorial for example a writer wrote about this album by a band called the young ones of Guyana and it was made in one thousand nine hundred seventy my family's from Guyana and there's a few little music I've heard from that space and if it wasn't for later kind of digging up these treasures from labels that are putting it onto band camp I would never have discovered it so I think the editorial arm has become the big space as for me to find new rabbit holes because all journalists bring a different interest to band camp and it's opened my listening appetite right you're talking about Dan camp daily which is a site that I also read pretty regularly how can people find both the work of band camp daily and yourself on that site so bank hemp deal you can go to daily Dot Band Camp Dot Com and it's updated daily and people can check out my website Shock Avi career dot Com so that C. H. Aka v Greer G. R. I E R Dot Com thank you so much Chaka thank you it's great we should go take a break when we come back you're going to talk with Sadie from Speedier Tease you talk about how she discovers music on bank she uses it as an artist and what it means to hers artist I'm here with Lars Guttridge Bob Boylan and you're listening to all songs considered from NPR music support for this podcast and the following message come from American Mensa the High Q..

"This is the artist known as symbol S Y M L. It's a self titled album and the song. We're listening to is called the Byrd in Stephen. It's one you played for me a while back and I immediately loved and thought. Wow. Who is this guy? The guy's name is Brian Fennell. He records under the name symbol symbol is Welsh for simple. But then you listen to this record, and it's anything, but it's got not only that kind of electro pop quality to it. But then just some of these of sparkling power pop songs at the same time. Really interesting songwriting voice enormous vocal talent and a song. Like the bird just comes together in this incredible way yet Brian Fennell said that he liked having the name simple because it was a reminder to not get too complicated in his music, and it does sound really layered. But the more I listened to it. I thought you know, it's as richly textured as it is it's not overly cluttered, right or overly busy. Yeah. Lyrically there's a lot of heartbreak and sadness and some of these songs as he seems to. Search for some sort of comfort in life. He lose to madness on the song clean is where he says his head is a room a room full of blood covered broken glass. And I think I heard that saw well, this is a deeply troubled. There are so many beautiful wonderful secret metal vocalist. Mr. I'm from. Yeah. Similar to the artists. S Y M L S Y M L in his record is self titled. We still have several more albums to play for this week's new music Friday. But first, let's take a short break, and we'll be right back support for NPR and the following message.

I'm here with LARs Guttridge, and Stephen Thompson. And we're looking at the best albums out on may third. We start the second half of our show off with one of the year's most anticipated habemus it comes from vampire weekend. It's called father of the bride. This is. See now to know me. I've seen known Cedeno you. You haven't seen me? But I haven't seed in through this. Again, sorta like Judah in the lion. I it's sort of like being a loser never felt so good. I mean here he's talking about a horrible horrible thing in his life. And he's just celebrating. Like, it's the greatest thing that ever happened to through this. The band is vampire weekend, the album's father of the bride and the song is called this life in this is as your caning we're talking about here. This is the band's first album in six years and their first since their secret weapon Rostom left the band. Yeah. A lot going on this record eighteen songs. Scattered over nearly an hour. And there's this fragmented scattered quality to it were as retaining is. So clearly has built up so many ideas this record has this quality where it feels a little bit overstuffed and at the same time you listen to that song. And there's a loose limb. Quality to it at the same time. There's a confidence in a playfulness that helps keep it from just feeling like too much. They've got a great Strutton will breezy and sort of carefree. But when you dig into the lyrics, I felt like there's a lot of anxiety in these songs, and like there's a sense that he feels the hours and the days slipping through his fingers, right? And like he knows no no matter what that every story if it lasts longer. Enough is going to end in death row. Well, it's the kind of thing LARs, you can back up on this. It's the kind of thing that happens when you become a new father as as did fairly fairly recently mazal have you ever felt more fragile invulnerable and all the time just worried about not dying. That's what happens when you become a fun. I wanna play a little bit of one other cut. This one's called sympathy. Does what? Let's go. Go.

Oxnard stip into the way back. And here he is he's he's back. He's it's just a few months later, and he's got a falling follow up crazy just months ago. Right. We talking about a new Andersen pack, so Ventura is the follow up to Oxnard that was the album that was overseen by Dr dre, and it's sort of failed to live up to these outside expectations. That Anderson has really sit for fans in the last few years. But Ventura really is a true return to form the opening song that you play come home which features Andre three thousand by the way, gotta get that in let me let me a little bit of that.

And he's singing nobody bigs anymore, and it's not this era in our and be where you know. We're men were in a free too big. I'm down on my knees for you. There you go, right? But to me, it also kind of feels like it's like, a double wink from Addison, like he's leading us know that he's back to his former self again that you know, that mix old soul and future sold and hip hop that people love about him is back.

I've worked with you Robin long enough that I that I thought to myself, I bet he's gonna say demented. It does know and maybe not as much on this record as their previous one. But so they put out a self titled record in two thousand seven which I loved it was on my top ten that year. And and then that was it. Yeah. It felt like a one off tobacco up slightly singers Damon Albarn from blur and guerrillas Paul Simon in from the clash Simon Tong from the verve and afrobeat pioneer. And drummer Tony Allen they made the first good the bad McQueen record. And it was meant to be a snapshot of life in Britain in two thousand seven and a lot of commentary on the country at that time and its relation to world events. But basically they wanted to reassess England in twenty eighteen obviously Britain has been an even more turmoil with Brexit, and again, it's relationship too complex world events. They have called it. A reluctant goodbye letter. To the US UK prepares to leave the European Union. Yeah. It's just a lot of observations and reflections on what it means to be British and on the cut we played truce twilight. They sing enjoy it while it lasts because soon it will be different.

"This little peep the album is come over when you're sober part two. And as I'm listening to this. I'm realizing that about half of our show is comprised of artists. We lost too soon. Jimi Hendrix, Charles Bradley roster Sapiro and little peep in one week when we posthumous recordings. Unfortunately, though peop- died in November of last year from a drug overdose. He sang and rapped a lot about drug use and depression, and you hear the darkness come through in in so many of of his lyrics. He was a huge up and coming star in the world of sound cloud rap as as it's often called, but really more like IMO, rap music, really blended. Hip hop sounds with sampled riffs from Emo bands. And so he kind of straddled both of those scenes he really seemed to be on the on the verge of something when he died so senselessly and try and tragically his death ruled an accident. And I think he. Was only twenty one twenty one years old. This is a companion piece this album come over when you're sober part to to his record that came out last year come over when you're sober part one and a lot of the songs on this record were all recorded around that same time, he left behind a laptop full of sound files, which are now being pulled together by this kind of close knit group of collaborators. So my guess is we'll be hearing posthumous a little peep records for some time to come come over. When you're sober part. Two is the one of many many great releases out on November ninth as we barreled towards the end of the year. We've only got a few more shows to do not really much comes out in December. So we'll be taking a break them. But we've got to get through the rest of November yet. Thank you, Steven Thompson. Thank you and LARs Guttridge. Thank you.

"Hilton. I'm here with an powers, LARs Guttridge, Stephen Thompson. And we're looking at the best new albums out on November second, and we start the second half of our show off with the singer Rosanne cash in her album, she remembers everything. Just. Just. Bliss. A woman. Split. Laughed. To show me. Version caches the singer record is she remembers everything in the song called rabbit hole. Kind of mostly melancholy new new record from Rosanne cash. Yes. Rosanne cash. One of the great mood centers of our time. One of the absolute best storytellers she generally works with her husband, John Leventhal as a producer. And he is all over this record. But she also worked with Tucker Martine and the song rabbit hole is a good example of what happens when an artist who's done a lot try something with someone new in that case, Colin Meloy, that's the other voice from the December STS on that track. And I really think Roseanne taking some chances on this record provides subtle rewards. It's a super-rich session. She's talked about how she really wanted to go deep inside a women's perspective for this title track is kind of metoo story. The atmosphere IX the way Roseanne's beautiful voice works with other voices. It super-rich Rosanne cash the Ottoman. She remembers. Everything let's go to ban that Steven you turned me onto a band called stove. The album is called apostrophe S favorite friend. Stove is the Bandon Stephen. I dunno. You tell me how you pronounce it. It's written as pasta fee s favorite France. Maybe stowe's favorite friend in. This the song. We're hearing called mosquito. I think I think you're supposed to read the title of stoves favorite fry their first record from two thousand fifteen is called is stupider. Here's supposed to read that as stove is stupider. I love this band. I when if you ask me, Stephen what is the best year for music. I will say next year next year is my favorite year. I like new music, I don't necessarily like to spend a lot of time while owing in the past. I wanna hear what's next this record takes me. Right back to my college radio days. It is fairy nineties nineties in the most delicious least derivative way there are these be huge chiming hooks throughout I think bands like versus that. I love a band called. This has been names kind of my favorite music of the early nineties. And if you listen to this record what really just stands out song after song is just the quality and the sharpness of the songwriting, but I I've just been digging into this record for for weeks. And I just love it. I remember the band the velvet teen. Yeah. They do some thing where they sent the Cise. Like a lot of happening in ninety alternative rock maybe with a little bit emo-, maybe with a little bit of noise rock, but it is one of those things that the arrangements are very complex, but it comes out straightforward. Yeah. It did not take much for me to love this band. Almost immediately sprinkle that sound on the shoe and all. Some pretty low hanging for me. I admit I love the ninety cent sound to the band is stove, and they're almost stoves favorite friend or posture, fiesta favorite friend. Let's go to the artist Kelly Moran.

"The artist is Richard swift. His new album is called the heck's, and this song is called selfish math in PR. Music's LARs Guttridge here for this one. He learns, hey, Robin, Richard swift, a much beloved artists, of course, died back in July, just forty one years old, but for people who don't know him. He was the secret weapon to a lot of great bands. Richard swift was a producer for many at the great indie rock record the last decade. Plus he worked with the shins our back and the black keys, Valerie, June, Nathaniel rate, lift Damien, trotto Sharon van and like, and I'm barely scratching the surface what he did, but I, I knew him as a solo artist back in two thousand two. He released a seven on this freckled label. I love called Bella blue music, and that was the time when I was just buying everything that I could from this record label. And he just had this sonic vision that I hadn't heard before this rhetoric to the future sound. He left everything from like doo-wop to captain p heart to vote Diddley. He loved old sounds, but he wanted to make them feel remarkably current. He suffered from depression and anxiety, and he had a drinking problem that ultimately led to his death. He addresses all of that on this record. Any speaks to the family that he left behind and kind of like most heartbreakingly his three children provide backing vocals on a few these tracks and to them happened to be about family members of his that also passed one song called Wendy was about Richard Swiss mother and other one is called sister song about Richard Swiss sister, and they died like right after other. And it's a lot to take in he sings quite a bit in the first part of this album about how he's going to hold on, and he is he is going to make it through this. But there seems to be this turn at some point in it where he begins to realize that he is near. During the end of his life. So this record closes with a song called September twenty. And the family says that this is the final song that he ever wrote. He says, the lurks go. When I go, I'll go out alone. Everybody knows OB safe in my home death to us part sickness and health made a plan. Fixing myself. Try not to drink from poison. Well, slip away asleep in my car, all the angels sing case Rosser. Aw death to us part sickness and health. You're such a unique voice in the ear for music, and I already miss him a lot. The record from Richard swift is called the heck's LARs. Let's do one more album that I know you're loving this week. It's the artist Lonnie Hawley, and his new record is called myth. Now. This is the artist Lonnie Holly, his new record is miss and that's spelled m. i. t. h. i. full disclosure, I'm new to Lonnie Holly, and I found this album to be a challenging, listen at times, but the more I dug into his story and some of what's behind his music. He's really a fascinating guy. His first art is not music. Here's kind of discovered in the late seventies early eighties for being a visual artists specifically in found art Hewitt, basically find junk and Hewitt make something out of it. That was very beautiful. And so his, his art comes out of like these very desperate places, but they're often incredibly beautiful, but it wasn't until twenty twelve that he released zone music, and he was sixty two years old. The story as it's told as he tells is he was one of twenty seven children and has fifteen children. Yeah, he became a. Fifteen years fifteen children of his own. He says he was when he was only four years old. His adopted mother traded him for a bottle of whiskey got a while that he, he was run over by car and pronounced brain dead, but recovered from that. And now he here he is, as you said, very late in his life, making music. And those first recordings were just him in like a tape recorder him just kind of improvising, whatever phrases came to mind. And I, I got to see him at a Smithsonian a couple years ago Islas levitating afterwards because the way that the cellist who's with them that they've been so Lee was was responding to his words into his streaming unique, piano playing style with such tenderness and dexterity and on this record in particular, you hear that a lot more because he actually that backing band is largely made up of jazz improvisers. Very cool. And and one that's worth spending a lot of time with you. Really need to spend a lot of time with this one. I think to pre ate everything that's going on and the album is myth MIT h by the artist Lonnie Holly. Thanks LARs. Thanks for. We've got one more album to talk about for this week's new music Friday, but there are a few other notable releases for September twenty first that I want to mention the Lupe fiasco album. Druggists wave originally scheduled for September twenty eighth. It's been pushed up a week in is out today as is Christine and the Queens New album. Chris, the Brock Hampton album iridescence Brock, Hamptons. Iridescence is out today. It's their I in a neutral g called the best years of our lives. The band mutual benefit has a new record out today called thunder, follows the light and finally liars. The ban liars has a new album called titles with the word fountain. All right. Our last album for this week's new music Friday comes from the band villagers. It's called the art of pretending to swim. Span.

"Clue. The artist is ROY Gumri. The record is suffused in this song is haunting as the title apparition and LARs. This was a new discovery for me. ROY Montgomery, he's a New Zealand bass guitarist who's been making music since the early eighties. He was part of the flying nun group of experimental rock bands that were coming out of especially the eighties and the nineties. He was a band called the pin group, and remers famously hates his own voice. So we kind of had this idea. Well, why don't I write the songs and other people saying them, and so he assembled this record featuring nothing but women's wages. The one you just heard was Haley for from secretary and also features. She keeps bees Katie von Schleicher, purple poker, which is a group didn't know there from Zeeland Julianna Barwick in Kruger's Liz Harris. This is like, this is a murderer's row LARs. This is this is all the all the voices and different like sound creators that I love, and they're all in one spot. It's interesting that ROY Montgomery's has a history of flying nun records. I consider flying them to be more the headquarters for what we used to call the shambolic sound. You know, that kind of the chills or the bats, a noise of indie popu what you played for us. Now, it really reminds me of four AD classic for AD albums, like this mortal coil. I don't know if that for you. Absolutely. And that record is called suffused by ROY gummy one of the many releases out on August seventeenth. I can't believe how fast this year's going, but thank you. Everybody for this and powers Nashville.

"I'm here is an powers and Stephen Thompson, LARs Guttridge. We start the second half of our show off with mid sqi and her new album be the cowboy. Steal few. And then the nothing. As in. This. Seen gone with my eyes with my body with me. But. It's always just. Needs again. Time with sticking together. Stick gain together. Nice. We so much Fiona apple on this cut in particular me and my husband for mid ski in her record, be the cowboy. I think we all pretty much fell in love with her after her record puberty two and twenty sixteen and she's back with her follow up. Yeah, be the cowboy is about power. Relationships. Mid ski has always been one of those artists who is fearless in terms of how she approaches emotionalism in her music and how she looks at herself or the character she's building at the very f- of propriety at the very edges of kind of like being in control of emotions. But the craft has just grown in her music and these songs while they still deal with, you know that intensity like in this song about a woman who erases herself except for in her relationship to her husband, the the precision with which she tells the story is at the highest pitch. You know, I don't know for me is a great pop rock record. It is a great guitar. Record and it just you can sink into it on so many levels. The artist is Mickey and her new album is be the cowboy. Let's go to a really interesting record from the composer and electric artist. Anna Meredith who knew album is called ano-. So classical fans will immediately recognize this as of all these four seasons, it's specifically the first movement of his summer concerto. Anna Meredith calls it heat. It's the name of this cut heat, Steven. What is she doing here? Well, you mentioned that the title of record is ano-. The full title of the album is ano- Cohen, four seasons by an American Antonio Vivaldi. Right? So there is a there is interwoven throughout this record a performance of four seasons by the Scottish on samba violin orchestra with Anna Meredith, then spliced throughout our these original compositions. These original America's compositions that are more in line with these experimental soundscape that she makes as a solo artist and it is such a big swing. It's such an interesting approach to a piece of music that we have all heard a million times. Let's listen to a bit of another cut. This is a track she calls bloom. It's really hard to hear it in this. I think just based on where it falls on this album. I think this is supposed to be the first movement of the autumn concerto. At least that's where it falls in the track sequence even though I can't hear anything in it. So she's either swapped it out completely for the song bloom or she has transformed it so profoundly that it's hard to tell where it is in the song. Yes, she's swinging back and forth between her own compositions and Valdis and it really it is very hard collection to excerpt right because it is it is kind of in his creating an overarching feeling where you're you're, you're finding some of the patterns in the way that her work kind of can be woven into valleys, found founded extremely seamless though because I was listening to this record on the car. And you know a lot of these records that try to be classical records that try to be so edgy kinda hit you over the head with it. And this one, I kind of lost track. Of where football and ended in where Anna Meredith again. And I thought that was a nice little trick. The record ano- four seasons by Anna Meredith Antonio of all the I thought ano- by the way was a mash up of her name. Anna Antonio ano-. It just means year. Yeah. No. Why he's doing so cool. All right. One last record before we go comes from ROY Montgomery and the record is called suffused. Clue.

And, and so you all sit around and you've laughing awful lot and gave birth about a year ago to this thing we call you call right friends, but I'm buying it. Yeah, we're drinking struck Rosa waves. So this time song has its origins described help sell high and put out a new song. They were, they're teasing. They're new records that came out last year. And you know if you work for a company, you probably use slack which is like this message port kind of system and our colleague, Otis heart. He wasn't too into the Sahlin to to put it mildly, and he was kind of making fun of it a little bit and Lindsey. Right. I naturally leapt into defend the Heim song and I said, you're all about I am. I, I really love Heim, and so I ended it, and I said it just sounds like something that you would drink wine to in the summer. And I said it was Rosa core. And then I said, excuse me, the preferred non Klay -ture is I wave immediately as LARs. Got rich, does took it to Twitter and you just tweeted frozen. That's it, and results. And people kind of knew what it was right away, which was really funny. I think instantly resonated that there was something that people immediately started sending you recommendations. Everyone just sent back LARs com on knowing the you could tell that there was a wink and a no, they immediately understood what we meant by something is rosy wave. I think LARs follow tweet was you can laugh all you want, but you could definitely name five pop songs that fit this description right now off the top of your head versa. Do. Do you remember any of the what? What came in what people were suggesting? I think we're in the middle of the Lord craze last summer at this point and perfect places by Lord was definitely an early Rosa wave suggestion. All right. So let's do. That we'll come back. We're going to play a lot of music and we're going to drink. Yeah. The party to month bones much the waste is though the speak guts, been the out zero ally. Is just. Grace sny. The headlines and the weather on the team in will five. See. Having the tank gal Austin, this is. Again. If they keep. Saying. We need a little more drink, but this song. Was the first song on a play list you did last year was rather successful? Yeah, we, we made a, we crowd sourced a playlist of songs that we thought have fit into this very nebulous theme of summary, pop music that isn't just pop music, but could be all kinds of music just as long as it felt good. And you could imagine yourself kind of like tip saly drinking a glass of eight to with all your friends, not Friday night. So you've got to be doing a new playlist and Mercer you wanna tell me the first thing on or at least eight thing on this year's platelets? Yeah, one of my favorite songs on this year's Rosa wave playlist is the song what I need by Hayley Kiyoko. It is a perfect summer bop. Healy Kyoko is known to refer to this year that we're in as twenty teen. And I think that this might be the twenty eighteen summer anthem. Go back and forth, getting complicated. There's an awful lot of body shake in here. We'll keep going. If you make it work. I say, need a little more. Participation. I go become. Oh, so what you which you know can fix you along. No phones issue of babe. My view Colin needed shelter on hall, Hugh vanass, which no with again, a bit will get you. Patua known. Issue. Huby.
