first reformed (paul schrader, 2017)

music friday: 2014

Future Islands, "Seasons (Waiting on You)". #1 single on that year's Pazz & Jop poll.

St. Vincent, "Digital Witness". People turn the TV on, it looks just like a window.

Flying Lotus, "Never Catch Me". Featuring Kendrick Lamar. Video directed by Hiro Murai.

Aphex Twin, "minipops 67 [120.2] (source field mix)". Ad copy said "This is the first Aphex Twin dong fore 13 years between the publication of the first a formal music."

HAIM, "Oh Well". A band identified with a middle-of-the-road rock of bands like Fleetwood Mac play much harder in concert, which may partly explain why the Mac cover they choose is Peter Green's wailer (with a tip of the cap to Danny Kirwin's solo).

D'Angelo, "The Charade". D'Angelo's first album in 14 years.

SBTRKT, "NEW DORP. NEW YORK". Pronounced "subtract".

Kiesza, "Hideaway". Impressive one-shot video. Shades of "Wannabe". Kiesza is a better singer and dancer than Posh is. Probably the best video on this list.

DeJ Loaf, "Try Me". Her first single, she still hasn't come out with a full album.

Tacocat, "Crimson Wave". I'm pretty sure this is the only video on this list featuring George Takei.

Spotify playlist ... HAIM never recorded "Oh Well", so I've included the Fleetwood Mac version.
