DROPOUT PATROL-Sunny Hill

This is a wonderful, sexy, trippy record. It’s indie pop, slow, somewhat cold on its face, but when you dig deeper….I particularly like “Love, Aren’t We Angry?” The understatement of the title is great by itself, but the way it describes fighting with a lover is funny and disturbingly real. Most of the songs here are like that.

Lead singer Jana Sotzkos has a beautiful voice made deeper with echo, who at once made me think both of Justine Frischmann (of Elastica, for those too young to remember the 1990s) and Cat Power (solo indie darling, for those too young to remember the double-zeros), even though the music isn’t really like anything those performers were known for. With lines like, “I collect panic attacks and nasty tattoos,” this is a record that will stay with you.

Standout tracks: Love ,Aren’t We Angry; Feeding Ghosts; Sharks.

MYKE CLEMENTS-No Worry, No Sorrow

A nice collection of rock and roll instrumentals. Big sound, big instrumentation, definitely worth your eartime.

MISOGI-Pink2

Misogi is an electronica artist from Dubai, who makes music that occupies the odd space between hip hop and ambient. One can imagine the songs from Pink2 as background music in a club that serves oxygen or sells water for $10 a glass as easily as the songs could serve as beds for a loopy verse by Chance the Rapper. In fact, you don’t have to imagine it. Just listen to “Church,” which features Josh Pan. It’s not for everyone, but if you like it (as I do), I bet you’ll really, really like it (as I do).

TWO FROM AMIN PAYNE

Two sample-based free beats-like albums off Bandcamp. I dug ’em both, but I dug Curtis a bit more ’cause he’s a bit better than George Benson. Payne’s also got a Gil Scott Heron tribute, if you’re liking these.
