GOOD MUSIC 01/2024
Featuring new tracks from POND / Faye Webster / IDLES / Fat White Family / Kim Gordon / Danny Brown / Oneohtrix Point Never / The Smile / Wilco / Waxahatchee / The Bleachers and many, many more.
Once a month i post the best songs i blogged over at my other stack at GOOD MUSIC, all the best new tunes and fresh bands from the past month in one place.
This time, we open with some psychedelic indie tunes from Obscura Hail and australian band POND to the great colab of Faye Webster x Lil Yachty and the great nu-metalish Hunger Games from Bob Vylan. From there punk heroes IDLES take over, followed by Thee Alcoholics, some grunge from Eyedress x 1999 Write the Future and more punk from Sprints and The Chisel.
The Beths serve up some cool indie tune, Youth Lagoon tone it down a bit and the great Fat White Family, as always, make it weird again. Boeckner take it up from here and C’mon Tigres latest single is some fantastic tribal-housish dance-thing, and Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth-fame suddenly raps.
Some fine hip hop tracks from JID, Danny Brown and 1999 Write The Future are followed by a chicago housey banger by Zora, and some atmospheric hyperpopish Jungle-Anthem from Pobbles, while Oneohtrix Point Nevers genre-bending electronica stays undescribable. Helado Negro follows up with some arty synth funk, and The Smile play their artpop in front of a bunch of kids who go eh? in a musicvideo shot by Paul Thomas Anderson.
Some fine indie rock by English Teacher and Wilco, Shaina Hayes and the grungy gglum, Mary Jane Dunphe, Meltheads and Robber Robber, followed by german alt rockers Ja, Panik, and the fantastic Mk.gee, Smith Taylor, some grungy shoegaze from winter, and Lip Critic dial up some hectic art rock before we land in hardcore land with Kaonashi, BIB and Escuela Grind.
Gouge Away take over with some hardcore-influenced angsty alt-rock, before Gulfer play some nice emo-thing and Konradsen hit the breaks with their sweet, intimate chamber pop. Grace Cummings offers a nice balad, and Hurray for the Riff Raff and Waxahatchee play some cool americana, before the great Sheer Mag drop their signature funk-rock, and Fabiana Palladino joins in with a cool funk-pop song.
Then we lift it up with a great pop anthem from Rachel Chinouriri, and drive it home with the ultra sweet Tiny Moves from The Bleachers. Then, for good measure as the last dance, Geese’s super-ironic cover of Baby from the one and only Justin Bieber, because we will never, ever, ever be apart uh uh.
Enjoy your weekend!
