New Friends Old Friends
Berlin based composer and record producer Nils Frahm puts together no less that 23 tracks on this whopping album of solo piano compositions recorded between 2009 and 2021. Less outwardly experimental than Frahm’s usual works, New Friends Old Friends is precisely what the title suggests: intimate, warming, and congenial. Fans of the Frahm won’t be disappointed.
Fall In Love
Front-woman for the Jezabels and all-round rock legend Hayley Mary drops a surprise EP Fall In Love. The five-track release is Hayley’s second EP for the year and features production partnerships from Holy Holy’s Oscar Dawson and longtime collaborator Johny Took (DMA’S). Breakups, makeups, and summer fun road tripping tunes are the order of the day from this wonderful continuation in the evolution that is Mary’s solo ventures.
Be With You
New Zealand’s genre-defying five piece Leisure drop their long-awaited third album Sunsetter and serve up a tasty new single to mark the occasion. Laced with their trademark lush vibes, ‘Be With You’ glistens with reverb out the wazoo, funk-fuelled deep house beats, and phat bass licks. Roll a scoob, button down the Hawaiian shirt and feel empowered to wear your sunglasses indoors. It’s time to take this track at your leisure.
