Albums of the Week – 12-03-21

After the excitement of the last few weeks, we’re back down to earth this week! But fear not noble reader, as we have remixes for your listening pleasure. Yes, that’s right, not only do we have Caribou (Suddenly Remixes) but also Perfume Genius (Immediately Remixes) with old music made new by the gift of a remix!

There are also new releases from bands/ artists such as Pino Palladino and Blake Mills (Notes With Attachments), Nubiyan Twist (Freedom Fables) and Baby Boys (Threesome). In the end, Another Michael won out, with their new release New Music and Big Pop!

Albums of the Week – New Music and Big Pop by Another Michael

For Another Michael, it all boils down to trust. In mid-2017, the critically acclaimed indie three-piece packed their bags and collectively relocated from Albany, NY to a shared house in West Philadelphia. This move signaled not only the start of a new chapter for the trio, but also a deepening of the bonds that would come to define their captivating debut LP, ‘New Music and Big Pop.’

“It’s hard for a group of people to get closer than living together,” says bassist and producer Nick Sebastiano. “The stronger our connection grew, the more it shaped the music we found ourselves making.”

It should come as little surprise, then, that ‘New Music and Big Pop’ is Another Michael’s most collaborative work yet. Recorded in a small A-frame house-turned-makeshift studio outside Ferndale, NY, the record finds the trio pushing their sound in a dreamier, more folk-influenced direction, building songs around vulnerable, intimate performances using an ethereal palette of breezy guitars, subtle keyboards, and layered harmonies
