Bitches Brewin': a monthly forum mix-tape


#941

I really enjoyed that, went back and listened to a few things I had missed.

New month, new music, insecure men!


#942

This month I’m rather enjoying the unlikely pairing of John Grant and Stephen Mallinder (he of the classic industrial band Cabaret Voltaire) coming up with old-school electro-funk workouts under the name Creep Show. I’m a huge fan of both of these people, so I’m predisposed to love it…I’m not sure how much it’ll appeal to anyone else. I guess that’s what a forum mix-tape is for, after all.

I have no idea why it took me a couple of months to really get into Olden Yolk, but I am enchanted by them.

It’s a side-project (maybe) of Quilt guitartist/songwriter/occasional singer Shane Butler, along with a NYC-area multi-instrumentalist/singer/songwriter Caity Shaffer. And they’re really good.


#944

John Grant? Quilt?

GOOD WORK, LADS!

A new album from my favorite band The Amazing is due out Friday so I’ll add that soon.

Now playlisted at a Spotify near you!..

It’s all in Moussa Fadera’s drumming, how he approaches The Amazing like a jazz group. Reminds me of how Damon Krukowski held down Galaxie 500 and Damon & Naomi so beautifully.


#946

Just now trying this… didn’t know what to expect, but this is way cooler than I expected. Thanks!

Reminding me of The Auteurs and The Church.

Last month is here! I enjoyed that one; I actually had Creep Show lined up for later in the year but pretty happy to hear it now.

This month, I think I’ve added the correct album, but I have a back-up if not.


#948

Literally everything last month was fantastic…loved the new Amazing and that Olden Yolk was terrific. The find of the month was definitely Insecure Men though. That’s been my “first thing in the morning go-to” record for the last two weeks,

This month, putting up Persona by Rival Consoles. He manages to mash up fuzzy ambient textures, clubby techno and industrial beats and it emerges sounding downright soothing.


#949

Wow! A video from ye olden days when musicians shaved. So shocking!


#950

I just saw that the new Belly album is out. Haven’t heard it yet, but since I don’t know what else to throw in, you get Belly! Enjoy?

P.S. I agree about Insecure Men! Great album.


#951

I’m new to this Bitches Brewin’ forum mix-tape but a quick glance at the most recent albums and I nearly got to see Rival Consoles at a festival last year but he was on at some early hour of the morning and we were just so shattered from a busy day. Shame too because I dig a lot of what I’ve heard of his!


#952

last month

This one- Elon Musk’s least favourite rodent!


#953

I added the Soft Science lp that came out today, “Maps”. It’s a terrific dreampop album, long on hooks and memorable songs.


#954

Crikey, the new Oneohtrix Point Never album (“Age Of”) is something to hear. Getting closer to a pop record…not quite there yet. I figure he’s got three more years or so of this experimentalism until he’s producing Drake singles.


#955

Late night chill soundtrack anyone? I’ve added Fixed Rope (II) by Express Rising whom I dig.


#956

Last month.

This month, it rains and pours and occasionally things get broken.


#957

Dense symphonic drone from two guys calling themselves Pausal.


#958

I’m unable to add songs to the playlist, or I’ve forgotten how to do it. The playlist is in my library, so I can access it, but can’t add songs to it. Maybe it’s been so long since I’ve posted that I’ve dropped off of the members list or something?


#959

Are you trying to add songs on the desktop version or mobile? I’m not sure it works on mobile.


#960

Which playlist? This is the correct link.

There’s no membership list as far as I’m aware; I’ve never enabled one at least. I can see a couple of people have added albums.
