I Do This All The Time
I’ll be honest, I had confused Self Esteem with Shame and Do Nothing and thought it was another English rock band of their ilk but Self Esteem isn’t that.
Rebecca Taylor was in the band Slow Club and Self Esteem is a poppier and more emotionally bare project – more Bat For Lashes than Idles.
‘I Do This All The Time’ is a partly spoken word track about the expectations on people as we move through the world – an anthemic cathartic song that is a hand on the shoulder, an embrace of the self, as the video shows.
Self Esteem is due to play The Workman’s Club on November 9th.
‘Titanium’ from London artist Dave is a moody flex that was released alongside ‘Mercury’.
Oh cool. Jessie Ware kept back another banger for the deluxe version (June 11th) of last year’s What’s Your Pleasure?. ‘Please’ is a throwback soft soulful gospel-leaning disco track you could imagine George Michael singing. Production is by Simian Mobile Disco’s James Ford.
There will be 6 new songs on the deluxe album titled What’s Your Pleasure – The Platinum Pleasure Edition.
23-year-old Atlanta singer-songwriter Faye Webster has announced a fourth album I Know I’m Funny haha is out June 25th via Secretly Canadian (she was 15 when she released her debut in 2013).
‘Cheers’ has some of the sound that has dominated indie-rock in recent years (Julia Jacklin, Courtney Barnett, Big Thief) but is a sludgier take on the vibe.
The Irish label Orange Tree Edits is back with volume 8 of the bunch and leading off the release is this Italo-inspired edit by Hysteric. Hook it into my veins.
