    Morrissey A-Z: "Once Upon a Woman's Body"

    My personal favourite of the lost demos. I especially love the synths here, which, under the excess distortion, sound like Boards of Canada (an excellent group if you haven’t heard them already). This mixed with the guitar flourishes and the drum loops makes for an interesting blend of styles...

    Morrissey A-Z: "If Saturday Ever Comes"

    Nice to see the A-Z back... As for the track, it has certainly grown on me. It’s an intriguing gauzy, depressive doo-wopper that is a return to some of the more plodding mid 2010s song structures. The drones beginning is something I wish continued throughout, though Moz puts in a fine vocal...

    Morrissey Central "MORRISSEY NEW ALBUM" (May 30, 2021)

    Well, most of the commercial trap stuff is pretty shit, but’s there been so many great projects in this year alone. Take UK MC Little Simz, whose past two albums have been excellent, alternating between grime bombast and orchestral rapture. Her latest LP is in my top 10 of this year: check out...

    Morrissey Central & SER YT: “Once Upon A Woman’s Body” (October 30, 2021)

    Prefer this one to the other leak, but both are good, ignoring the poor sound quality. The synths sound a bit like Boards of Canada, and it’s good that he hasn’t regressed into his past chug rock self for the presumed Bonfire sessions. It seems to me like these are a way of promoting himself...

    Thanks to @TheSmiths_1985 for spotting this. Another “lost” track, this one co-written with Jesse Tobias. Edit: also a Central post. https://www.morrisseycentral.com/messagesfrommorrissey/316731-morrissey-lost-demo

    Strange/unexpected Moz references?

    Found this on Reddit. Uses HSIN in the background. A first for me anyway...
