Catching up (Part 2- Weird pop)

Starting with Aloa, an obscure duo from Kassel, Germany, whose only album got reissued 32 years later by Medical Records last year.

Farrah Abraham got famous as a Teen Mom Reality TV star. Her 2012 album has been panned by the mainstream critics but lauded by others comparing it to “outsider pop” and witch-house of Salem or Crystal Castles.

Rinse FM resident Faze Miyake has dropped a couple of cool collabs with interesting artists like Little Simz and Inga Copeland.

Emily Reo has flown under my radar so far, but she makes surprisingly touching and bleepy “outsider pop”.

Songlist:

Aloa – Banane Zitrone
Farrah Abraham – After Prom
Faze Miyake ft. Little Simz – The Nest
Faze Miyake ft. Inga Copeland – Ice Cold
Emily Reo – Rainbow Road
