Another new Patten album just out last Friday, his third this year, called Aegis (following Glow and GLO)))). He brings back the beats for this album while still keeping a more distinctive sound palette so it ends up sounding like a fusion of his stylistic traits.
Here it is on Bandcamp:

With the year stalled out, Constellation has started a new series called Corona Borealis wherein one artist a week releases a new long-form piece of music specially curated by the label and artist, between 9 and 30 minutes long, each accompanied by experimental film/video. There will be 16 pieces total, releasing every Thursday in October and November, and then again in January and February, and with a PWYC price for the first two days. Here's the schedule:

Fall 2020
Markus Floats • 01 October
Efrim Manuel Menuck • 08 October
Jessica Moss • 15 October
Jason Sharp • 22 October
T. Gowdy • 29 October
Fly Pan Am • 05 November
JOYFULTALK • 12 November
Joni Void + N NAO • 19 November

Winter 2021
T. Griffin • 15 January
Eric Chenaux • 22 January
Deadbeat & Martin Bakero • 29 January
Automatisme • 05 February
Light Conductor • 12 February
Off World • 19 February
Sam Shalabi • 26 February
Jerusalem In My Heart • 04 March

Last week's release was Markus Floats with "Karl Marx. Capital Volume 1. Chapter 33: The Modern Theory Of Colonisation [Abridged]," a piece of his trademark fusion of drone and synth arpeggios playing around a reading of the title text. Here's that on Bandcamp:
https://markusfloats.bandcamp.com/track/karl-marx-capital-volume-1-chapter-33-the-modern-theory-of-colonisation-abridged-2

This week, just released, is Efrim Menuck with "Baby It Has to Fall," an incantatory droning folk song. Likewise on Bandcamp, as the whole series will be:

It sounds like an extension of Kveikur.

Definitely. I've been waiting a while for a follow-up to Kveikur, and while this isn't quite that, it does scratch the itch pretty well. It's going to sit high on my end of the year list, I think.

I listened once to the new Bully album but it didnt grabbed me. I prefer the other stuff...the band is just Alice right?

Oh and one that disappear completely is Hayley Williams´s Petals For Armor

It's Alicia, not Alice. I've been listening to Bully since 2015. Saw them live when "Feels Like" was still new, awesome show. I think I still like that first album the most though.

The third release in Constellation's "Corona Borealis" series is a piece by Jessica Moss, titled "Opened Ending." It is a piece that draws melodic inspiration from Moss's Jewish heritage and in her mind it is mourning music, connected to a sense of loss and renewal that she finds in all Jewish music. Here's the video made in collaboration with her longtime associate, the filmmaker Jem Cohen:


And the piece on Bandcamp: https://jessicamoss.bandcamp.com/track/opened-ending

Lianne La Havas has jumped to the top of my list. Amazing.

New Mac Demarco was unexpected and surprisingly more groovy than I've known him to be.

I like the new Beabadoobee album. It's much poppier than her other stuff but that's OK, the whole retro-90s/Sarah Records aesthetic was running a bit thin. "Horen Sarrison" is really lovely

The new Annie album is fun. It’s called Dark Hearts. Very moody 80s synth-meets-Scandinavian pop. Like Carly Rae’s Emotion, but trade the bubblegum for black eyeliner.

I was super in love with all of the singles but then the album as a whole is a bit muddy and disspointing compared to them I found. The production of the 1975s guy ends up being a little too much which is weird because I feel like it makes the songs really shine individually. Still really good and god "Sorry" is such a stellar song.
