Apartments (2020)

On his second ‘comeback’ album after 2015’s acclaimed ‘‘No Song, No Spell, No Madrigal’, Peter Milton Walsh offers up a collection of songs that rival any since his band the Apartments’ first releases in 1978


Birdwatcher (2002)


The Darkest Hour Is Just Before Dawn
"The sound of someone who's awake when they should have been asleep for the last 10 hours, of unwanted sound on a weary brain refusing to go to sleep." Experimental and demanding, but ultimately rewarding debut from NYC project.

Fantastic synth folk pop on eponymous second album from French band Thousand, which has been released on the always reliable Bordeaux-based label Talitres
