The Friday Refrain: Your Weekly New Music Digest (Saturday Edition)

Welcome to the Saturday Friday Refrain! The edition of your normal new music update where I ran into sleep issues with the young one and give up on Friday altogether. On that bright note, let's see what came out yesterday -

*crickets* Ahem, so I looked but really the only big thing I found yesterday was LCD Soundsystem's return to the music scene with American Dream. Indie rockers Mogwai are back with Every Country's Sun and singer-songwriter rocker Jake Bugg released Hearts That Strain.

Labor over this List of last week's releases - aggregated and genrefied as many as i listened to.

And then the lists of odd themes I noticed, trends in the titles, a common thread amongst the masses, well, just a fun little thing I like to do...

  • Baby in Vain, More Nothing
  • Chris Forsyth & the Solar Motel Band, Dreaming in the Non-Dream
  • Angelo De Augustine, Swim Inside The Moon
  • Blank Range, Marooned With The Treasure

  • Vatican, Ache of Eternity

Well that will do it for this week. Check out the Spotify playlist to find out some things I liked from the week plus a plausibly almost coherent playlist of the above combinations... We'll see where the day leads. The sun is coming out and now I want to do things like take a shower and get ready for the day. Until next time - Happy Listening!
