Who's Megan Wahington? I'm digging just about everything I'm hearing from Down Under these days!
Her/her band name has alternated between Washington and Megan Washington. That's her last full length, one of my faves
.. Oh and a couple of tracks which will presumably be on the new LP
She started out as a jazz singer/pianist, still writes on piano and performs beautifully stripped back to those elements but has pushed her sound in different directions
I'm going to have to check that out! I kinda hope I hate it because lord knows I dont need another Aussie artist I love and have to pay out the @$$ to import the albums!
I hear you!
Only two made my list in the first month: Better Oblivion Community Center and Beirut. But they're two strong albums, so I'll take it.
Wasn't expecting BOCC at all, and the Beirut is so much better than their last album.
That album is really good. Streamed it on repeat in the car for several days. Now to try to find a reasonably priced copy.
Shit I wish I had not read these posts. I JUST put the first Delines album in a stack to take to my local shop to sell. And now not only am I probably gonna keep it, I’m gonna end up buying another one. Jerks.
Well, the shout outs for Laura Jean and Megan Washington have cured mr of my addiction to cute Aussie musicians. I think Megan could be great, but that pop style isn't for me.
While we're on cute Aussie musicians, though, you guys should really check out Tia Gostelow. Really good stuff.
Haha well in glad I could help cure you I think! And I know what you mean. I'm not totally on board with Megan's more synth poppy leanings these days but I've been with her as a fan since the beginning, and she's wonderful live. If I didn't already have that emotional connection with her music I'm not sure I'd be getting in to her as a new fan.
If anyone's still interested I recommend the tracks "underground" for a lovely take on a morbid subject, and "begin again" for a lovely, piano-driven breakup ballad. There's plenty more but I fear I might be hijacking a 2019 thread with some not-so-relevant stuff so I'll bail out now!
Better Oblivion is good (though not purely a Conor album) but Ruminations kicks its ass. I also thought Salutations was overlooked.
Check out Angelo De Augustine - Tomb. Has a very Sufjan vibe.
New Aldous Harding in 2019. Party was one of my fave albums of 2017.
“Aldous Harding is finishing her third studio album. The upcoming release reunites her with John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse) with whom she worked on the acclaimed Party.”
This came out last month for those interested in electronic / indie pop / whatever the hell you call it:
I enjoy it. Found their last album on vinyl a few months ago and it was really relaxing.
No idea when the album is dropping, but Molly Sarlé just dropped a sticky pudding awesome first single and I think this debut album will be something special.
Oh yes, Party was gorgeous and this will no doubt be too. There's some fantastic music coming from New Zealand these days, I strongly recommend anyone sign up for the Flying Out records newsletter for updates on the NZ scene, I've discovered some great music, early, through their newsletter
Someone I haven't heard in a very long time, gonna have to rediscover her work I think.
