Rema-Rema: Fond Reflections (4AD)

Although British band Rema-Rema existed for only a brief moment and were considered a mere curiosity in the grander stories of its band members, this new collection compiles a handful of unreleased material as well as a remastered edition of their sole EP.

Song Of The Day: Pixx, “Disgrace”

Taken from the 4AD release, Small Mercies.

TV On The Radio, “Dreams”

One of my favorite songs. Period.

Song Of The Day: Holly Herndon & Jlin (feat. Spawn), “Godmother”

Taken from the 4AD Records release, “Godmother.”

The Ghost Of Christmas: Dead Can Dance’s Dionysus

Dead Can Dance returned this year with their best album in 25 years, a haunting and dark oratorio about the god of debauchery. It’s easily one of the best albums of 2018.

The Ghost Of Christmas: This Mortal Coil, “I Come And Stand At Every Door”

A haunting and thought-provoking antiwar message.

Cocteau Twins: Treasure Hiding: The Fontana Years (Fontana)

Scottish trio Cocteau Twins shocked their fan base in 1993 by leaving their longtime label home at 4AD for major label Fontana. This era has always been considered problematic, as it found the mysterious group suddenly sounding not so mysterious. This four disc box set compiles all of their releases for the label, and offers up an important rethink about the band’s final chapter.
