Take notes from a few corners of the globe on this week’s roundup of new music.
Moscow’s Kedr Livanskiy shares the closer to her upcoming album Your Need (3 May via 2MR) – ‘Ivan Kupala (New Day).’ Electronic leaning left field pop, informed by a sense of darkness unique to Kedr’s musical-cum-geographical upbringing.
Portland-based, sci-fi inspired group Reptaliens share a new track + video for ‘Venetian Blinds.’ The track is lifted from their new album VALIS out 26 April (Captured Tracks). The song’s about isolation, but the video is anything but – take a seat amongst the intimacies of being in a touring band.
Juan Wauters announces his new album Introducing Pablo Wauters, which is as much an intro to us as it is to himself. It’s out 31 May via Captured Tracks.
“For me, Juan Pablo is part of a more personal search. Since I moved [to the United States], I’m Just Juan. But in Uruguay I’m Pablo Wauters. I felt it significant to retake my middle name.”
