Fasman’s Finds – Georgia Anne Muldrow

Fasman’s Finds is our column from Rebecca Fasman (intrepid record nerd, DJ, and curator at the Kinsey Institute) in which she shares what she’s listening to and why. 

Georgia Anne Muldrow released her most recent album (21st in her incredible catalog), called VWETO III, on May 21st. Georgia said that “VWETO III is intended for movement. It’s to be played when you birth yourself back outside after a long introspective period to get the things you need. It intends for you to be your own superhero and wants to be your theme for power.” 

Movement and inertia have both played perhaps outsized roles in our lives in the past 16 months, and coming out of this deeply embodied interplay between inside/outside, stasis/movement is hard. This record, thankfully, is not about movement in a showy or prescribed way – there will probably not be a tik tok dance challenge to come out of any of these tracks (though I am very open to being proved wrong about this!). Instead, this thoughtful, beautiful, rich album wants the listener to determine what movement means to us as individuals and wants to be the soundtrack to our own (re)emergence and power. This, especially after the past 16 months, is such a gift.

The B-Side: CAPYAC

As the nation lets loose a cautiously optimistic sigh of release and relief we deserve a bop that is pure unadulterated positivity and hope. Here to give us such a much needed jam is CAPYAC with a perfect flow by Slim Jeff and a hook from the dance floor heavens by Annabelle Maginnis. With lyrics like “…better when I’m living with passion…better when the love is action…” and “everything is going to be alright…you don’t have to worry tonight…” it’s the mental health pep talk we all could use, and one that your body will want to get up and get loose to.

Fasman’s Finds – Chronic Mncher

Fasman’s Finds is our column from Rebecca Fasman (intrepid record nerd, DJ, and curator at the Kinsey Institute) in which she shares what she’s listening to and why. 

I have fully accepted that I love sludgey things. I love sludgey metal, sludgey hip hop, sludgey electro, sludgey funk, give me anything that is grimey and I want to live in it and rub it on my face. This week’s song is no exception. The track “Flutez” by Chronic Mncher starts off super clean, almost dreamy, and pretty quickly moves into a dirty atmospheric world of sexy French people at an auto-shop (at least this is where my head went, LISTEN TO THE SONG and you’ll see what I mean, it’s cinematic!). 

Sexy French car mechanics fantasies aside, I really like this whole EP. I mean this in the best possible way – this EP sounds like if Air, T. Raumschmiere, and Gorillaz had a baby with great taste, and we all know discerning babies are the best babies. I found myself turning it on over and over again and it always was an energizing, focusing listen.

The B-Side: Ian Deaton

A Devo style electropunk banger about a serial killer experiencing a crisis of conscience, “An Immoral Brain” from Atlanta film composer Ian Deaton is a killer in its own right. Kick off your week with this absolutely perfect synthrock dance anthem dedicated to not murdering people, and do your best to do the same.

The B-Side: Joshua Worden

We love a song that doesn’t neatly fall into any specific genre, but still sounds effortless and undeniable. Such is the case with “Alright” by Joshua Worden. Not quite chillwave, not really a pop song, not exactly indietronica R&B but also at the same time all of these things and more. There’s a sparseness and repetitive nature in the verse vocals that provide a somewhat mantra like effect, but the straight forward thumping bass and vocal harmonies keep things grounded and moving forward. One of the more interesting (without trying to sound interesting) pop songs we’ve received this year.
