An Album a Day - February 2021

January's done for! Time to enter the new month with a plethora of fresh new releases!
1Goat Girl
On All Fours

February 1st

So yes, technically these first days are all releases that came out during January 29th but that are bleeding into this month. I guess you know Goat Girl already. If you don't, well, their last album wasn't jaw-dropping, but I've heard good things about this one, and what I heard sounds interesting, so here we go!
2Buke and Gase and So Percussion
A Record Of...

February 2nd

For the love of all that is holy and sacred don't miss on this album, people. Also, don't get confused by the tracklist in Spotify, etc, like I did. The bandcamp version has the full album, while streaming platforms only have some tracks (for some unfathomable reason). Check it here:
3Gaspar Poet
Beratna Sovaj

February 3rd

Today's album is kinda special. This is Sputbro Osmark's project. I only skimmed over it, so all I can say it's chilled out beats, space, atmosphere. the kind of stuff I'm gonna need to go over this dreadful wednesday.
4Shlimp Warc
Thgie Drsow

February 4th

The project of Acid Mothers Temple's very own Makoto Kawabata and Ruins' Tatsuya Yoshida. This is as crazy as it gets Japanese prog from 2 of the most renowned legends of the Japanese underground.

Unfortunately it is only available through Cafe Oto, but you can hear a track through Soundcloud (linked below)
5Cult of Luna
The Raging River

February 5th

The post metal titans are on fire. Good luck to the rest of the bands releasing post metal this year. The standard has been raised CONSIDERABLY.
6Psychedelic Porn Crumpets
Shyga! The Sunlight Mound

February 6th

You like fuzz, you like psychedelic, then you'll dig the crumpet trumpets. A marriage between Turbowolf and Tame impala. Contribro Asleepintheback made a killer review for it so go give it a read.

No BC but it's on youtube:
7The Ruins Of Beverast
The Thule Grimoires

February 7th

I know you all had this on repeat since January you pirates, but I just got to it on its official date. Anyway, this is amazing. Black metal, with Paradise Lost and Type O vibes, a track with middle east chanting, blast beats, guitars that sound like the howling of Godzilla... defintitely a must listen!
Vacuum γ​-​Noise Transition

February 8th

And here-s the 8th already, and a monday, and cold, so the least you can do in such a sorry state of affairs is jamming some avant-garde black metal ala DO. One man project from... from hell, i guess, I don't know.
9Heave Blood and Die
Post People

February 9th

Norwegian post rock / kraut rock, formerly stoner and doom group that I just found by chance this morning. I haven't jammed the whole thing yet but the first track got me hooked. Give a it a go!
10Revulsion (FIN)

February 10th

I think it's that time of the week when I start to crave this kinda stuff. Angry Finnish from Oulu doing channeling angry death metal. Heard good things about it, and I believe a review is coming soonish, so getting on it today.
11Endling (UK)
The Heavy Frigate

February 11th

I had planned having a nice quiet session with Anatelier's latest opus but my daughter had another plans, which involved screaming, crying, kicking and shitting, so I had it on but only could hear bits, will have to revisit. What I could discern between the screams was nice!
12Black Country, New Road
For the first time

February 12th

I didn't have a good impression the first time I skimmed over this but a focused listen revealed all the good stuff hidden beneath this album. Definitely an album you don't wanna miss this year.

February 13th

The trio is back with the miniature version of Fire! Orchestra. Honestly haven't heard it yet, cause yesterday was a crazy busy day, but added it as a sort of reminder for today.

No BC or streaming link for this, unless someone finds it. In that case pls let me know and I'll add it.

Edit: Found a track in Soundcloud:
14Chaos Echoes
Ecstasy With the Nonexistents

February 14th

In truth, this is a live recording performed in 2018 by the French experimental death metal five piece Chaos Echoes, which has been released now by Sentient Ruin. It is basically re-interpretations of some of their old material in a different environment. The first half being more orthodox and the second half moooore... experimental. All in all, an hour of ambience heavy blackened death without studio tricks. Hear to believe.
15Purplefox Town
Who Is Malkallam?

February 15th

Since they are someone's (and I mean literally "someone", our sput brother) pals, I'll let him do the talking: "For those of you who like Tame Impala or Temples, but would like them to be more instrumental and proggy, or King Gizzard, but wish them to be softer and slower."
Illusions of Control

February 16th

Fawning is a duo from San Francisco (I believe they were a trio before?) whose music is very dreamy, ethereal, spacey, you get the idea. It's pretty gentle to the ears and after a hellish monday at work it's what I need to cleanse my mind, otherwise I won't survive the rest of the week.
17Ad Nauseam
Imperative Imperceptible Impulse

February 17th

I guess the time has come to make space for this. The hype is real, I preemptively 5'd it, cause Ford told me to, so let's see how it lives up to the hype. Here comes the migraine!

Thanks to butt we have a streaming:
18Bodies of Water
Is This What It's Like

February 18th

This is not gonna be for everybody. I'm a few tracks in and it sounds like a modern version of the Mamas and the Papas. Fun so far, it could turn into a hangover later. I'll keep you posted.
Methods Of Human Disposal

February 19th

Have a little blackened grind, fresh from the crypt. The Pope is dead.

February 20th

After a busy weekend, with equal amounts of slacking and well... just being busy with "real life", we're back on track witha solid slab of budgie-core. Here's Fritz, for fans of Fazerdaze, Westkust, all that ja... shoegazy dream pop rock.
As the Love Continues

February 21st

They will never extinguish, or so it seems, cause at this point in their career they are still able to surprise with an album like this one. I've only checked once, but the aftertaste was good, so will revisit.

See the grandpas adapting to the new times with a bandcamp link:
22Yu Su
Yellow River Blue

February 22nd

A rec from Gyro, and today Monday's homework. Seems like a good album to start the week, chill and vibrant, little bit hazy, just skimmed over it last week and first thought is that it needed more vocals but that would maybe change after I give it a few proper listens. From Vancouver:
23Suffering Hour
The Cyclic Reckoning

February 23rd

Couldn't update yesterday but so 'm doubling up today with Suffering Hour and the one below. Black metal from some crypt in Minneapolis. Few minutes in and I'm loving that sharp guitar tone, reminds me of Devil Master, but with a more Death(y) approach. Time to suffer!

February 24th

And if you wanna get a headstart on the mid-week jam, I'm gonna be vibing to this German krautrock outfit's latest release. Synths ahoy!
Ex:Re with 12 Ensemble

February 25th

A couple of years ago (I think), I reviewed Daughter's very own Elena Tonra's first foray into solo territory. Her project, Ex:Re, while being fairly similar to her work with Daughter, less atmospheric, more straight forward, left a mild to good impression. TwigTW just reminded me the other day she had recorded the album again with an ensemble so I'm gonna give it a try today.

No BC as far as I know, but it's on your preferred streaming service. Also check this official video:
26In Tormentata Quiete

February 26th

Before getting on today's new releases, gonna close the (working) week with Nocte's mysterious rec. Seven Italians doing some kind of avant-garde black metal. I'm 2 minutes in and there's grrovy bass lines, someone hexing me in Italian (didn't expect less), and post rockish guitars. This is gonna be interesting, to say the least.
27Anneke van Giersbergen
The Darkest Skies Are The Brightest

February 27th

Fans of The Gathering have a date tonight with Anneke's new solo work. I've spent almost all day with it and even if it's not what I expected (forget about anything close to The Gathering), it's an interesting album, full of warm acoustic tones and Anneke trying different things with her singing. A good chill time.

February 28th

Great way to send off February. If you have followed by this album diet religiously you have devoured almost 60 albums in 2 months. Absolute decadence. Also, see you in March list starting tomorrow, yes?
