D//E Playlist: Stream And Destroy Vol. 21

Last Monday of the month means a new volume of Stream And Destroy, including some of those fine tracks from recent, new and upcoming releases we didn't get to cover individually.

The great The Radio Dept. return with their first new piece of music in two years, an elegant single, harbinger of more to come from them in 2020. Another Swedish dreampop act, Maria Lindén's I Break Horses, also returns with a new album, introduced with the expansive, very ambitious and quite atmospheric Death Engine.

London band, Anto Dust, have a new five-song EP out, Songs Of The Sea, with the lyrically arresting closing piece, Eyeless In London sounding both euphoric and agitated. New York's Peel Dream Magazine come forth with something that sounds like the closest one can get to the sweet cacophony of My Bloody Valentine. Also close to MBV's sound, Canadian artist Daniel Monkman's ZOON will be releasing his debut album, Bleached Wavves, in June through Paper Bag Records, and the first specimens off it sound more than vibrant, as the lead single's title suggests.

Not to be confused with the Radiohead song of the same title, Anyone Can Play Guitar by Madeline Johnston's dark dreampop project, Midwife, introduces us to her grief-laden upcoming album, Forever, expected out in April via The Flenser.

From the roster of the great K. Records come Daisies from Olympia, WA, with a brilliant piece of krautrock and post rock-bent electronica from their fresh EP, Cherry, while Canadian band Mundy’s Bay will be soon releasing their EP, Control Room, which features some of the most memorable and accessible music ever associated with Kurt Ballou who handles the production.

Heavy punks, Warish, fronted by Tony Hawk's son, Riley, return with another raw and visceral grunge rocking tune which rips. Miami lo-fi punks, Las Nubes and Palomino Blond, will be releasing a split EP together on BuFu Records soon, and both bands, like a matched set they sound really instinctive and authentic on it.

Ahead of the upcoming album by Jarboe, the prestigious dark artist contributes to the newest album by Dutch minimalist composer Jozef Van Wissem, as the moody and sinister Vox Populi, Vox Dei lays out the strengths of both these great artists.
