I’m a big fan of Let’s Eat Grandma as I have already mentioned on this here blog! Here’s a great live performance from them on KEXP. Their music really resonates with me. A song like Hot Pink has something important to say about gender that works on an intellectual level but it’s also quite visceral - perfect combo! A song like It’s Not Just Me is also All the feelings.
I have been having a think about what my favourite albums of the year so far are and this is pretty much my list, in no particular order. I have included a few videos from them for your viewing and listening pleasure!
Kali Uchis - Isolation
Blood Orange - Negro Swan
Mitski - Be the Cowboy
Troye Sivan - Bloom
Let’s Eat Grandma - I’m All Ears
Goat Girl - Goat Girl
Delilah Holliday - Lady Luck Vol. 1
Princess Nokia - A Girl Cried Red
And I’m really looking forward to:
Nicole Dollanganger - Heart Shaped Bed
Skinny Girl Diet - Ideal Woman
There are plenty of notable omissions from my list and I haven’t gone into EP’s and singles. I’ll leave that for another time!
