There’s so much good music out in the ether that sometimes it’s difficult to parse through all of it. Every week The Daily Music Report will do the hard work for you and highlight the best releases available on streaming services.
This week we’re highlighting new music from Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Björk, and The Big Pink.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Cool It Down
Eight tracks deep, Yeah Yeah Yeah’s latest project, Cool It Down is a bold experiment that’s been nine years in the making. In a press release for the album, Karen O stated: “Don’t have to tell you how much we’ve been going through in the last nine years since our last record, because you’ve been going through it too […] So yes we’ve taken our time, happy to report when it’s ready it really does just flow out.”
Standout Songs: Spitting Off The Edge of the World, Fleez, Burning, Different Today
Björk – Fossora
Björk’s first album in five years, Fossora is the Icelandic singer-musician’s tenth overall. Partially inspired by the 2018 death of her mother, the songs “Sorrowful Soil” and “Ancestress” are about her, as well as how Björk dealt with the grief. Preceded by four singles (‘Atopos,’ ‘Ovule,’ ‘Ancestress,’ and ‘Fossora’), the album has been met with universal acclaim upon its release.
Standout Songs: Apotos, Sorrowful Soil, Ancestress, Victimhood
The Big Pink – The Love That’s Ours
The Big Pink return for their first new album in ten years. Follow-up to 2012’s Future This, The Love That’s Ours is a daring statement piece that reunites singer/guitarist Robbie Furze with his old bandmate Akiko Matsuura on drums and enlists new bassist Charlie Barker. Furze said of the new album: “This record symbolises so much, it’s my flag on top of the summit. It shows that I finally understand what is truly important. This is the soundtrack of my journey to get here.”
Standout Songs: No Angels, Love Spins On Its Axis, Rage, Murder
