Under The Radar

  1. Tame Impala (aka Kevin Parker) has announced a string of North American tour dates for 2022. He has also shared the song “No Choice,” the latest release from the forthcoming deluxe version of his most recent album, 2020’s The Slow Rush.
  2. Mitski has shared an animated lyric video for her new single “Heat Lightning.” It is the latest release from her forthcoming album, Laurel Hell, which will be out on February 4, 2022 via Dead Oceans.
  3. Early next year, Baltimore duo The Furniture (Michael Kuhl and Matthew Pierce) are set to share their self-titled debut, releasing January 28th via Spanish Prayers. Recorded entirely during a live performance at Baltimore’s Reverb club, the record is a free-form live experimental odyssey, taking inspiration from ‘70s German experimentalists like Cluster, minimalist composers, and fractured psychedelia.
  4. With the first volume of Joni Mitchell’s Archives series offering material that leads up to her 1968 debut album, Archives Vol. 2 picks up the torch from there and runs up to some late ’70/early ’71 sessions for her classic album Blue. Aside from the rewards to be found in hearing her albums released during these years, the five CDs (also in a 10-LP limited edition) in this set offer a unique embarrassment of riches, with nearly six hours of unreleased home, studio, and live recordings.
  5. The first time I heard “Right On Time,” the opening cut from Birdtalker’s new self-titled record, I was stopped in my tracks. Firstly, it’s a great song with all the elements to be a hit. The chorus asks, “Did anybody ever tell you you were right on time?” and it certainly feels as if this band has come along at the perfect moment.
