An irregular feature in which we ask local musicians about the music they’ve been digging lately. 

Joshua Quon, Tar Halos: “The new My Bloody Valentine album, MBV. I got Loveless in ’92, and was hooked. This new one does not disappoint. I like how stylistically it sounds like a product of the past 22 years. They get some of the best guitar tones ever!” 

Megan Liscomb, Boy King: “I’ve been listening to the new Foxygen album [We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic] a lot, especially ‘San Francisco’ and ‘Shuggie.’ I feel like I found a secret Velvet Underground record that I never knew existed.”

Derek Emery, DJ ill spectre: “The best tunes I’ve heard in the last few weeks are coming from Giraffage (aka Charlie Yin) out of the Bay Area. Yin’s latest LP, Needs, is propelled by his rich, layered beat work and anchored by some choice, pitch-shifted R&B vocal flips. Taking bits of technique from a range of electronic microgenres—future bass, trap, broken beat, electro-soul, night bus and beyond—Giraffage deftly blends it all and imbues these tracks with his own distinct vibes. Even sweeter, this excellent record is available for free at the Giraffage Soundcloud page.”

Jon “Artoo” Sajonas, Hell.Note: “Adrian Younge / Venice Dawn is just an all-around great project, timeless sound. I feel like they capture that early ’70s sound not a lot of modern bands can capture. I’ve been following them since The Black Dynamite Sound Orchestra and everything has been a great listen. I look forward to the new project with Ghostface [Killah].” 

Alia Jyawook, Alia / Hot Nerds / Tiny Telephones / Kata: “I regret to inform you that I have been listening to the new Mumford & Sons album, Babel, on vinyl. A kick drum on every quarter note, a British accent and a banjo are doing the trick for me at the moment.”
