Album of the Week – 26/06/20

New albums released this week include the beautiful piano sounds of Gabríel Ólafs (Piano Works). There’s also a new alias for Luke Temple (of Here We Go Magic) in the form of Art Feynman. His new album is called Half Price at 3:30. Also, check out the releases by Daniel Avery (Love + Light) and James Krivchenia (of Big Thief – A New Found Relaxation) which are all featured below. In the end, we went for an album new album by Gordi. That first track Aeroplane Bathroom is more than a bit special…

Album of the Week – Our Two Skins by Gordi

“I can’t get my shit together in this aeroplane bathroom, I’m wondering why…”

“Australian musician Gordi – the Bon Iver and Troye Sivan collaborator also known as Sophie Payten – will release her new album, Our Two Skins, on June 26th via Jagjaguwar. Today, she presents its lead single, “Aeroplane Bathroom,” and an accompanying video, shot at an aeroplane graveyard in Bangkok.

The writing of Our Two Skinsbegan after a nervous breakdown while pacing around an Etihad flight from Australia to Europe in late 2017. Payten had finished exams to earn a medical degree and after trading her “nice, safe relationship” for a new one, she began coming to terms with a new truth in her identity. That identity struggle and her new relationship, which played out against the backdrop of the marriage equality plebiscite in Australia and her Catholic upbringing, led to an isolated internal state. That state was further fueled by distance, trying communication and lost loved ones. Our Two Skins chronicles the intense and impossible time Payten spent renegotiating who she is and how she fits in the world”
