The latest project of Madeline Johnston of Sister Grotto. Together with collaborator Tucker Theodore, Midwife creates dreamy songs that confront raw emotions, haunted soundscapes that get stuck in your head. Following their acclaimed 2017 debut Like Author, Like Daughter, their new Prayer Hands EP delves further, bringing more reverb-drenched anthems of loss.

Released on Antiquated Future Records...[ continued ]

Two sides of textural ambient synthscapes from some masters of minimalism. Sabriel's Orb is the latest project from Willow Skye-Biggs (Stag Hare, ariel) and John Atkinson is a film composer, formerly of the Brooklyn hypnogogic-pop group Aa.

Released on Whited Sepulchre Records. Listen to Sabriel Orb's side here and John Atkinson's side[ continued ]

Ant'lrd's Sleep Drive is a dreamy joyride of overblown organs and skewed beats. Long-form pieces that mix ambient-drone aesthetics with a loop-based instrumental electronic shimmer.

Released on Whited Sepulchre Records. On clear vinyl. Mixed and mastered by Odd Nosdam.

Listen on Bandcamp.

Beautiful packing with digital download code. Listen on Bandcamp...[ continued ] Briana Marela- Forgiveness

A long-lost 12" EP from the late great City Center. Four woozy, atmospheric, skewed dream-pop tracks. On clear, screen-printed, one-sided vinyl. So gorgeous!

Last copy! Cock and Swan's wash of synths and bass heaviness mix with sparse acoustic guitars to create something that is the best of so many genres.

Unrecognize finds them coming out of their lo-fi shell and having beats that blow your mind. Plus hypnotizing story songs and so much more.

This is such a deal, too. Not only do you get one of the best albums of the last few years, but you get it on vinyl and CD (plus two digital download codes!), all for ten bucks...[ continued ] Cock and Swan- One Hundred

Corespondents
Ur $10.00

Seattle’s Corespondents are a whirlwind. Three superb musicians who span the musical map- from western swing to Bollywood steel and a good many things in between. They have a magical quality of appealing to just about everybody without fitting nicely into a style, often being pretty weird, and not having a singer.

This album is the perfect album for a good many situations- dinner parties, acid trips, movie sequences, road trips, and the like...[ continued ] Corespondents- Demon Mustache

Hedia
