So this is what we listened to in January. In a month where a post-new year fug seemed to hang for a bit longer than ususal, it was a relief to find such an array of tracks to capture our attention.
It was a pretty solid month in all; Tim Hecker, Time Wharp and Parts and Labor gave us teasers of albums still to come, we marvelled at new full releases from Deerhoof, Richard Skelton’s side project AR and Shigeto, while Women may be on permanent hiatus, but their track on the split 7″ with Cold Pumas et al gave us a timely reminder of just why they’ll be missed if they do decide to call it a day.
Meanwhile, going forward we’ve got releases to look forward to from James Blake, Föllakzoid, Julianna Barwick and, with any luck, some new material from Tune Yards. Happy February y’all.
