SEAN NICHOLAS SAVAGE (Arbutus Records / CAN)
Sean Nicholas Savage is probably the best thing that happened to music this year. Smokey Las Vegas lounge P!O!P!, dirty disco, weird-folk, neo-R&B thrashers, bubbling 80s heartsongs, smooth 70s AM pop, basement lonertude, campfire balladry, dreamy soft-psych, blue-eyed reggae, Caribbean-tinged synth pop and, most importantly, hit-making.
ENSEMBLE ECONOMIQUE (NOT NOT FUN / US)
“I’m in a perpetual personal transitional period and my music moves along accordingly. I let the vibes take me, this way and that, like the mist, the fog, the gentle ghost, floating aimless on the beach, full of everything and nothing, at once, letting the early morning sun blast me into a million pieces of ecstatic white light, pure, fragmented, transcendent.”
FAUSTO MAIJSTRAL (IT/NZ)
