Dutch artist Upsammy’s album from last year was one of my favourites of 2020. I didn’t even think of the fact that Zoom is probably the most corona-themed title one could think of. Her new EP Bend was also recorded in isolation and feels like a natural companion piece to her recent LP on Dekmantel. The 4-track 12″ came on the same label a few weeks ago, along with a limited LS tshirt with art by the artist herself. “Flutter” feels like the ultimate soundtrack to the on-coming spring and “Metallic” sounds like an April drizzle. It’s a record that’s easy to get into, but also has many layers to it.
