💽 » Drastic Measures, by Bayonne
electronic • 10 songs • 45 minutes
One of my favorite things about this newsletter, besides recommending music to all of you, is when one of the readers reaches out with a recommendation back to me. After recommending some Brazilian music to reader Joshua G. earlier this year, specifically singer-songwriter Silva’s debut album Claridão, he replied back introducing me to Bayonne, and he definitely hit the spot!
Austin-based composer and producer Roger Sellers, aka Bayonne, is known for creating and layering intricate loops as well as his engaging one-man live performances as a solo artist, and his 2019 album Drastic Measures hasn’t left my headphones since I first hit play months ago. Different from last week’s recommendation STRR, expect to hear many more vocals here, and good luck trying not to fall in love with this record.
🎶 » There’d Better Be A Mirrorball, by Arctic Monkeys
4 years after their most divisive album to date, Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino (2018), British rockers Arctic Monkeys are back with the first single of their upcoming album The Car, out Oct 21. Although I somehow understood that they were planning a comeback to their old form, There’d Better Be A Mirrorball follows a similar vibe presented in TBH&C, in which we see a much slower-down and striped version of the Monkeys. I miss their old sound, but I continue to be intrigued by the new direction they are choosing to follow.
🎶 » Brutal, by Terno Rei
From their 4th studio album Gêmeos, Brazilian rock band Terno Rei chose Brutal as their new single, which got a beautifully done music video to accompany the track which is definitely one of the highlights of the album. Know for flirting with dream pop and indie rock, this new record sees the band maturing into a more accessible sound without compromising their essence. One of my favorites of 2022!
