Snail Mail, Soccer Mommy, Lucy Dacus and Lomelda

There is a theme to my repeat listens recently.  I like music that reminds me of early Cat Power.

Snail Mail’s new album is coming out June 8th on Matador.

Soccer Mommy recently released their the album ‘Clean’ on Fat Possum Records the same week as the Breeders comeback and I think it’s much better.

Lucy Dacus is a singer from Richmond, Virginia.  Her album ‘Historian’ is out now also on Matador Records.

I was introduced to this song from the ‘NPR SXSW 2018: Austin 100‘ Playlist.

Jon Hopkins – Emerald Rush

A fun Studio-Ghibli-influenced video for the new Jon Hopkins.  His last album ‘Immunity’ and live show in Portland was one of my top of 2013.  I am excited for the album ‘Singularity’ to come out on May 4th on Domino Records.

After posting that I ran into this Oregon Travel ad that also seems very Miyazaki-influenced:
