Sufjan via Bandcamp

Friday New Music 9/25

Look it’s another Friday, a pretty cool day to be honest. There’s some new music today! Actually it looks like there’s a lot of new music, this list is really long, but, here’s what I’m looking forward to or what catches my eye at least. Sufjan Stevens obviously. I’ve only heard the first single and not anything else but I’m very excited for this and look forward to the next three years of listening to it to death and only wanting to talk about the new Sufjan Stevens. There’s also a new Sylvan Esso out, their second release this year after their incredibly good live album.

New to me band The Losing Score have a new EP out that I’ll give a listen because bands I like are tweeting about it. Roisin Murphy has a new one, I don’t know her much but I know that’s a big deal. Sad13 has a new one, an end to a campaign of homegoods. So… ok, Ghost of Vroom? Fuck. I can’t really figure how much of this is an actual Soul Coughing reunion and how much of it is Doughty being spiteful and recreating Soul Coughing without any of the original members. Either way… it sure sounds like the name implies, the ghost of Ruby Vroom and I guess I’m there.

Here’s a full(er) list, taken from Consequence of Sound with some additions made by me. Let me know what you’re excited for, what’s good, what isn’t working for you, and anything really – enjoy!:
