SKY FERREIRA Unveils “Don’t Forget”
Released in March 2019, “Downhill Lullaby” marked Ferreira’s first new original song since 2013. NME said, “The pop outsider’s first release in six years feels like the beginning of an ambitious new era…Ferreira’s return serves as proof that exceptional things can come to those who wait.” Vulture noted, “‘Downhill Lullaby’ shares more in common with Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds than Ferreira’s own earliest singles…It’s the voice of a woman who won’t take her suffering alone.” Pitchfork named “Downhill Lullaby” as one of the best songs of 2019 and praised it as “a five-and-a-half-minute, goth-noir, chamber pop piece – with strings – that could have easily closed an episode of the revived ‘Twin Peaks.’”

Magic Arm returns with the mesmeric glitch of ‘432’
With accompanying film to concrete-in the frequently used, critical terms ‘cinematic’ and ‘widescreen’, Magic Arm – also known as multi-instrumental off-grid explorer of vivid soundscape, Marc Rigelsford – sets the kindling glowing on his first album release in nearly ten years. Lifted from lost recordings completed in the sanctuary of a former whiskey distillery on the Manchester fringes, 432 is the first listeners familiar with Magic Arm’s first two, accessibly experimental albums will hear of new long-player, Dance Mania.
We at Clubbed Thumb along with Flower Power Records are happy to bring you the new album from Black Market Karma “Aped Flair and Hijacked Ideas”. A psychedelic carousel of syrupy melody and liquid audio.
The title of the album is a tongue in cheek reference to the idea that nothing is truly original. Influence is a beautiful infinite web connecting all art.
