3 New Albums Out This Week You Should Listen to Now: PinkPantheress, Eels, & Your Old Droog and Tha God Fahim
This week we’re highlighting new music from PinkPantheress, Eels, & Your Old Droog and Tha God Fahim.
PinkPantheress – to hell with it (Remixes)
PinkPantheress has shared a new remix project of her critically acclaimed, to hell with it album from 2021. This time around PinkPantheress lets her songs run free as artists like Sam Gellaitry, Powfu, and Flume take the reins. The new album’s digital release is accompanied by the original on Disc 2, with Disc 1 containing the remixes. PinkPantheress discusses the new album in a statement, “I’m extremely happy to have had all some of my favourite creatives work on this project. These remixes get me up and dancing like there’s no tomorrow and I hope they have the same effect on everyone that tunes in.”
Standout Songs: Pain – Powfu Remix, Last valentines – 2AAB Remix, Passion – Sam Gellaitry Remix, Noticed I cried – Flume Remix, Reason – Jarreau Vandal Remix, Nineteen – Nia Archives Remix
Eels – Extreme Witchcraft
E and company are back with the Eels 14th studio album, Extreme Witchcraft. In this installment, they turn back the clock to 2001, which saw them release their fourth album, Souljacker. On that album, the Eels partnered with John Parish, who is best known for his work with singer-songwriter PJ Harvey. John Parish is back for this round. And so too is the fuzz. And most importantly, E’s lyrical mastery. Some moments remind us of Beck (‘Grandfather Clock Strikes Twelve’). And on other tracks, you might think you’re transported back into the late 60s or early 70s (‘Good Night On Earth,’ ‘Steam Engine’). It’s what you have come to expect on an Eels album: E’s lyrics about rejection and loneliness accompanied by rolling grooves and garage-backed guitars.
Standout Songs: Amateur Hour, Steam Engine, Better Living Through Depression
Your Old Droog and Tha God Fahim – The Wolf On Wall St 2: The American Dream
It’s been just over two months since Your Old Droog last released an album. At that time, we covered Your Old Droog’s Space Bar for this same column. Space Bar a solid solo album that deserves a listen. This time around, Droog and Tha God Fahim release a collaborative album, The Wolf On Wall St 2: The American Dream. It’s their follow-up project to last year’s Tha Wolf On Wall St. The eight-track project continues right where they left off with their interplay feeling effortless and bars bouncing back and forth. The Wolf On Wall St 2: The American Dream features beats by beats by Nicholas Craven, Messiah Music, Fortes, and Conductor Williams.
Standout Songs: No Days Off, Chubby Pockets, War of Millionz
