L’Rain – I Killed Your Dog


>> GUB – GUB LP (Sophomore Lounge) *BEAU WANZER & CHAMPAGNE MIRRORS ✶ ✶ ✶ ✶

SICK…… GUB is BEAU WANZER + ALEX BARNETT (CHAMPAGNE MIRRORS), Chicago legends who will need no introduction to fans of dark & surreal dance music. Their first LP as a duo plunges you into the shadow world with low grooves and subtle synth work. Chill and dubby but still profoundly evil – perfect listening for the cold months to come. on SOPHOMORE LOUNGE + RECOMMENDED.

>> L’RAIN – I Killed Your Dog LP (Mexican Summer) *Black or Indie Exclusive Oxblood Vinyl

This third record from experimental soul artist L’RAIN gets theatrical, with her dramatic vocalizations built up around dark orchestral sound design, yet given some levity with wry humor. It’s not accurate to pigeonhole this record exclusively as “soul”; you’ll hear guitar-driven STROKES-esque shamble and icy dance rock in the vein of 90s BJORK, but with flecks of gospel/R&B that will remind some of SOLANGE. Great stuff! RECOMMENDED.

>> METRIC – Formentera II LP (Thirty Tigers) *Black or Clear Pink Vinyl

While Formentera II lacks some cohesiveness, you couldn’t ask for better songs. That’s what makes METRIC’s 20 year career. They’re incredible songwriters with a great grasp of arrangement. Whether they’re giving you cleansing disco rock, or slower, chiller space-y tunes, they’re always themselves. This is for folks who like the YEAH YEAH YEAHS or BLONDIE. A near perfect melding of synthy dance & guitar rock n roll. RECOMMENDED.

>> PARANNOUL – After the Magic 2LP (Top Shelf) *Magenta Vinyl

After the Magic is a fantastic exercise in rock experimentation from anonymous South Korean artist PARANNOUL, reinventing shoegaze, emo, drum’n’bass and dream pop into a maximalist esoteric collage style. On Top Shelf and absolutely RECOMMENDED!

>> TOMB MOLD – The Enduring Spirit LP/CD/CS (20 Buck Spin) *Black or North American Exclusive Blue & Black Vinyl

2023 has been a huge year for death metal, especially for the Toronto based TOMB MOLD. This album has been hyped as much as an indie death metal release can be hyped, complete with memes & Twitter beefs. It’s no surprise to us that this lives up to that hype because TOMB MOLD has been one of our favorite death metal bands over the past few years. This one is perhaps a bit more technical but it definitely sounds like TOMB MOLD, complex but always brutal. RECOMMENDED.
