Every Friday, at The Soundx we will pick some new releases, based on quality or importance, which ones you should listen to throughout the week. This week we have releases from black midi, Bachelor, DMX, Mustafa, and Moby.

black midi Cavalcade

Produced mostly by John “Spud” Murphy, black midi’s second record, Cavalcade, was recorded in the summer of 2020 and, unlike its predecessor, Schlagenheim, it was not improvised. “People seemed to really like the debut album but after a while, we all became pretty bored with it… So, it was like: this time let’s make something that is actually good,” Guitarist Geordie Greep told The Quietus. The album is out through Rough Trade Records.
