Here’s a rundown of new releases on DSPs and physical releases in record shops this week.
HAAi – Baby, We’re Ascending
Debut album of “techno, house, drum n bass, downtempo and pop leaning electro” from producer, DJ and singer Teneil Throssell features Jon Hopkins, Alexis Taylor, Moxie, Obi Franky as well as the spoken word poet and trans visibility activist Kai Isaiah Jamal.
Just Mustard – Heart Under
The second album from Dundalk five-piece moves the band into further noise-rock territory. It’s their first album release on Partisan Records.
Throughout recording at Attica Studios in Donegal, the band discussed the idea of wanting the listener to feel like they’re on a train going through a tunnel. “This album felt very blue to us,” singer Katie Ball explains. “There was sadness and sorrow in the album, and it felt like being underwater and under something very heavy. We let that influence the music, but it wasn’t a decision – it just naturally happened that way.”
