Quiet Space — #187 — What Was Left Behind

John Mulville has been making music as Paperbark since 2016. Making these gorgeous ambient sounds helps him process memories. His latest for Constellation Tatsu is What Was Left Behind, full of light, a fluttering soundscape . The release is a part of the excellent Summer Batch and we feature this fantastic album plus music from Suryummy and Arian Shafiee.

1/2/3/4 — #207 — Headlines

“Headlines” is the first single from Charlotte Cornfield’s upcoming “Highs in the Minuses” album. After spending much of 2020 with her thoughts and instruments, Charlotte knew it was time to take her new songs out of the house. Over the course of 5 days, she got together with her band they recorded the album, mostly live, seeking to capture the raw emotion of the songs. Based on the first single, I can’t wait to hear the rest of the release.

1/2/3/4 — #206 — The Umbrellas

The Umbrellas are a 4-piece jangle-pop group from San Francisco who take their influences from The Byrds to Orange Juice, The Pastels, Comet Gain and Belle & Sebastian – but beautifully weave these strands into their own sound. Their debut self titled album is one of my favourite releases of this year. Highly Recommended.

Quiet Space — #185 — Dictaphone

Dictaphone are a Belgian-German band with mastermind Oliver Doerell at the helm and they return with their fifth album “Goats & Distortions 5” on the always reliable Denovali imprint. Oliver Doerell again teams up with Roger Döring (clarinet & saxophone) & Alex Stolze (violins) to create a gorgeously melancholic sound, blending “morbid acoustic instruments” with electronics. On this edition a special blended selection of the latest work with previous gems. Essential listening.
