Bunny Hoova is releasing album Longing via Preston’s Them There Records on July 26, with preview track ‘Lazy_Easy’ premiering on AQNB today. The Rotterdam-born, Manchester-based musician produces the kind of garage-influenced avant-pop and broken-down soul similar to artists like Micachu and Tirzah, whom she’s also supported on stage.
“Domestic scenes, isolated farces, all told/sung against an ever-shifting backdrop of spartan beats, sludgy guitar work, and heat-treated samples. Cassette plastic melts into air. First things first, though, as “MINE” offers an audiovisual window into LONGING’s cosy interior. It’s a languid jam that, appropriately enough, roughly approximates a sea breeze on a sweltering day, with an airiness that is necessarily accompanied by a pervasive weight. Aftersun on that hard-to-reach burn. Real yin-yang shit”
FINALLY! The bunny is out of the bag…
Directed by Rena Matsunaga Sogunro and Bunny herself
“The resulting 15 sideward glances form a tapestry of vagrant miniatures, each pulling in its own direction, navigating the concrète jungle on their own terms: flashes of serendipity (the “A” triptych), nouveau-“Folk Music,” and post-industrial drum loops all form the murky patchwork.”
“Complex, leisurely manic, delightful, dulled, true to life. You know, a little nice, a little terrible, a little headsmash-y.”
What an absolute banger for j.b. glazer Compact Break tape launch.
Seriously inspiring live sets from all the heads

Tristan Bath included Compact Break in his top tapes of January.
“After a quiet slew of tape and digital releases via their own murky Jannet Power INC imprint, strange London-based producer j.b. glazer. emerges with their first fully realised album, Compact Break. Similar to fellow Londoner Klein, j.b. glazer inhabits fertile new ground between the outer reaches of ambient composition and experimental pop. Compact Break segues between sections like a muddy mixtape; it’s a post-digital suite of patchworked ideas. The instrumental miniatures – such as luscious highlights ‘Moon Face’ and ‘A iii’, both full of software keyboard notes bobbing up against each other like drunks in a wave pool – come from a very familiar urban midnight world. It’s the place where vaporwave jams ooze from car radios, street lamps flicker above shady characters, and couples stumble home through the dark arm-in-arm. Elsewhere, proceedings get all the more abstract and alien. Such as on ‘Meritocracy’, where radio snippets quietly overlap in the hintergrund as ultra-minimal beats slot into a rhythm somewhere between the gentle buzzing of power cables and a Moritz Von Oswald track. The menacing ‘Gardener’ weaves in leering processed vocals, formulating a vision of trip-hop as imagined by Wolf Eyes. To call it a grab bag of styles wouldn’t do this tape justice though. The mood coalesces far too cohesively.”
