New Music Releases – October 2020: Pt. 3

Talking about new music that came out in October – again! See part 1 of the roundup here and part 2 here.



Mike Sopko, Bill Laswell & Tyshawn Sorey – On Common Ground (M.O.D. Reloaded)

resurrecting the spirit of Last Exit in power trio format

Since the days of Cream and the Jimi Hendrix Experience, the guitar/bass/drums trio has been a springboard for innovation and experimentation. In the hands of visionary tone scientists, this venerable lineup continues to be a laboratory for music of primal power and tonal subtlety.

Concretism – Dick and Stewart: Original Soundtrack (Castles in Space)

Dick and Stewart is a series of short animations set in either Britain’s dismal past or the Britain that’s soon to come. It’s hard to tell nowadays, isn’t it? Either way, just imagine what it would be like if childrens’ TV programmes were written by George Orwell or Franz Kafka. Or the government itself.

The stories follow the adventures of the eponymous Dick and an eyeball, which is all that’s left of his best friend, Stewart, following an accident. It’s written, animated and directed by Richard Littler (Scarfolk), produced by Andy Starke of Rook Films (A Field in England, Free Fire, In Fabric) and read by Julian Barratt (The Mighty Boosh).

Mary Lattimore – Silver Ladders (Ghostly)

Future Islands – As Long As You Are (4AD)

Metz – Atlas Vending (Sub Pop)
