Catching up on spring and summer

Grey Malkin (Scottish goth-folk project The Hare and the Moon) and Michael Warren (Hare collaborator and psych artist) just released a stunning cover of Pink Floyd's "Jugband Blues" in honor of Syd Barrett's deathday. No easy feat without a Salvation Army band behind it, but marvelously done. Part of a tribute EP.

Bry Webb (dreamy fella, former Constantine) put out a 7-inch split with Chad Van Gaalen in late April, and this is his half of the record:

English post-punk group Primetime put out this little EP in May and it's doing a swell job of filling the gap left by the absence of Grass Widow and the Raincoats.

In late June, longtime PJ Harvey and Nick Cave collaborator (and dapper gent) Mick Harvey put out a third volume of Serge Gainsbourg covers, Delirium Tremens. It follows 2014 double album Intoxicated Man and Pink Elephants, and Intoxicated Women will conclude the set later this year.
