If you're not subscribed to Stones Throw on Youtube, the Dungeon Sessions featuring performances in their warehouse are something hype you're missing out on.

Bill Laurance - "Madeleine"

Skinny Puppy member Bill Laurance has been stretching his legs on recent solo releases (among them Swift, my #20 of 2015) and on Aftersun he breaks in to a run. Strong likelihood it ends up higher on the Top 20.

Jaimeo Brown Transcendence - "Be So Glad"

Apt name because this album is transcendent.

Lushlife - "Toynbee Suite"


Laura Sauvage - "Rubberskin"

The first single from Canada's answer to Chan Marshall or Courtney Barnett, Sauvage follows up last fall's Americana Submarine EP with Extraordinormal and cements her place in the lo-fi rock renaissance.

The Magnificent Tape Band - "Patterns In My Mind"

El Huervo - "Carried"

DAMN. This is my jam of the day. Check out the rest of Vandereer from Sweden's El Huervo (aka Niklas Ã…kerblad), since it's all good, but start by getting "Carried" away.

Thorn1 - "Stun"

I don't think I've given Silber Records enough shine. In fact, searching through my posts it appears I've never mentioned the drone-heavy label or one of its many artists / releases despite the roster making regular appearances on my late-night radio show playlists. It was while assembling the playlist for tonight's show that I realized I should show Brian John Mitchell and the work he does some love considering how taken I am with the latest from Thorn1, an LP called The Leave of Leaves. I'll be playing three tracks on the show to close things off and it all wraps up with the beauty below, "Stun," an expansive tune that will lull you to bed in the dark of night.

Miles Bonny - "As You Sleep On My Lap"

This is like an upbeat lullaby - the pairing of Bonny's vocals and Ta-Ku's beats is an exciting combo that plays out in a chill fashion.

Otis Junior & Dr. Dundiff - "The 1"

I love her year-round, but it seems especially fitting to discover and dedicate this to my wife on International Women's Day.
