This Is Not A Safe PlaceWichita Records #ad - Ride return with the 6th studio album of their career and their second since reforming in 2015 and signing to Wichita. This is not a safe place is arguably the Ride album with the broadest sonic palette thus far. The albums title was inspired by one of the hobo code symbols once used by those who travelled the railroads of the US, and then found in the early artwork of Jean-Michel Basquiat.
As with their previous album, the highly acclaimed Weather Diaries, Erol Alkan was in the producers chair, whilst career-long collaborator Alan Moulder with Caesar Edmunds mixed the album. The phrase clearly resonates with the current state of the world politically and environmentally. You can hear sounds and styles that span their entire catalogue but, both musically and lyrically, this is clearly an album made by a band who love being back together and who are at the very top of their game.

In The Morse Code Of Brake LightsConcord Records #ad - What happens when a nation that was born to run, runs into the full stop that is our current social and political climate? The answer, is somewhere “In the Morse Code of Brake Lights, and to rev engines into the wild frontier, my friend, ” as The New Pornographers would have it on their eighth album.
There’s a deep climatic unease running through these 11 tracks that’s matched only by the sheer musical glee with which the band addresses the prevailing mood of the moment.

Why Hasn't Everything Already Disappeared?4AD #ad - Is no one’s sleeping an outtake of an aborted Kinks recording session in 1977 Berlin with Eno producing? No. What is popular music today a reaction to? Bob mould- Sunshine Rock. Dada was a reaction to the horrors of war. Why wake up in the morning? why hasn’t everything already disappeared? Deerhunter’s eighth LP forgets the questions and makes up unrelated answers.
Whatever guitars are left are pure chrome, plugged straight into the mixing desk with no amplifier or vintage warmth. It gets up, walks around, it records itself in several strategic geographic points across north america. It comes home, restructures itself and goes back to bed to avoid the bad news. If there is one thing Deerhunter are making clear it is that they have exhausted themselves with that toxic concept.
Why Hasn't Everything Already Disappeared? #ad - What they spend their time doing instead is reinventing their approach to microphones, the drum kit, the harpsichord, the electromechanical and synthetic sounds of keyboards. How do you describe an album out of time, of logic and emotion? why make this album in an era when attention spans have been reduced to next to nothing, concerned with the disappearance of culture, of nature, of humanity, and the tactile grains of making music have been further reduced to algorithms and projected playlist placement.
The result is as thrilling, haunting, and unpredictable as anything in their roughly 15 year career. That is nostalgia. Punk was a reaction to the slow and vacant 70’s.

If How Did I Find Myself Here was a 10 pm record, all swagger and cathartic explosion, the band acting as DJs of their own overnight radio station, riffing on an idea of what a Dream Syndicate album could be at this moment in time.
These Times #ad - There's no avoiding the existential panic of a world that's hurtling somewhere quickly and evolving and shifting course by the hour. With that reintroduction and a full year of touring behind them, to dig a little deeper, the Dream Syndicate had the freedom to take it all somewhere new, get outside of themselves a little bit.
