In episode 5 of This Is Not Happening, we wade through blog favourite Sufjan Stevens' much-awaited new album, The Ascension. It's the first album we've picked for an episode before its release, following 2015's Carrie and Lowell, a deeply personal album that we all loved on its release. The Ascension is a departure into electronica, and it truly split opinion.
We'll also be diving into new music for the first time, much overdue, with four superb tracks from the past few months. They really were a joy, and you can find them here:
Guy: Doves - Prisoners
Nolan: Troy Kingi - All Your Ships Have Sailed
Joey: Nilufer Yanya - Crash
David: Rejjie Snow w. Snoh Aalergra & Cam O'Bi - Mirrors
This album of the month and all our music discussions over the last ten years can be found on the blog at www.thisisnothappening.net, which will run alongside the podcast choices and much, much more. So check them out so to see what we like and where we clash, and comment if something catches your eye. We'd love to see what you think.
Episode #6 will find us in review of the year mode, talking about our top ten albums of 2020 and our favourite track of the year. The episode will be with you in time for Christmas.
