Bandcamp’s editorial department might have been gutted recently, but it’s some comfort to know that what remains is still putting out good content, at least for the moment. For example, last week they published this piece that used the recent Lush reissues as a starting point to guide readers through some very good and thoughtful RIYL suggestions.
Naturally, they start with the band’s own freshly polished discography, and then spotlight both Miki Berenyi and Emma Anderson’s respective recent projects as well as scene peers Pale Saints, to where the band’s original lead singer Meriel Barham decamped. None of which would be news to the pre-existing fans of the band the article purports to speak to.
From there, they get more interesting, rounding up a selection of stylistic and spiritual descendents of the band drawn from around the world – the Netherlands, USA, Japan, and China. I’d never heard of any of the acts before, and while I like some more than others, all are worth a press of “play” on the embedded players.
