Perfect Pussy

Fri, Apr 4, 2014, 09:03


St Paul & The Broken Bones “Half the City” (Single Lock/Thirty Tigers)

Raw, engaging spinal soul hollering from Paul Janeway and friends from Birmingham, Alabama

Jamie xx “Sleep Sound” (Young Turks)

A producer who can do no wrong delivers a beautiful swirl of colourful sounds.

Perfect Pussy “Say Yes to Love” (Captured Tracks)

Punk rock fierceness from Meredith Graves and co, one of the finds at SXSW 2014.

Chet Faker “Built On Glass” (Future Classic)

Debut album from Nick Murphy, the Sydney dude with the slo-mo, soulful, pop/r’n’b/disco sound.

Ry Cooder “Paris, Texas” (Warner Bros)

They don’t make soundtracks like this anymore. Cooder supplies deep atmospherics and widescreen melancholy for Wim Wenders’ classic 1984 flick.
