Return of Music Talk

So it’s been a while since the glory days of Tin Speaker. That’s okay, though, because darkest hour comes right before the dawn (Bob Dylan, Harvey Dent, Thomas Fuller). So I’m just going to talk a little bit about the music I’m listening to. And prepositions I’m ending sentences with.

Procrastihontas – Mass Produced EP From her bandcamp: “Sad and soft acoustic songs about being let down by the world around you. Slow late night strums and resonant notes.” Sounds about right. It works for the same reason most solo acts work — a compelling voice and an understanding of how to write music that complements it. I suggest smoking a joint and listening to this in the tub. Actually I’d suggest doing that for any good music. Why have I never done that?

TNGHT – TNGHT Collaboration between Hudson Mohawke and Lunice. I don’t really listen to either of those artists but this EP if full of bangers (not that kind). Many opportunities to shout “OHHHHH!”

Simone White – Silver Silver She’s been around for a few years now, but I’ll confess to not hearing her music (as far as I know) until this week. Inventive arrangements, soft but compelling vocals, eminently listenable but never facile.
