Swedish dreampop artist I Break Horses (aka Maria Lindén) will release new album Warnings, her first in six years, on May 8 via Bella Union/PIAS. “It’s not a political album,” Lindén wrote back in February, “though it relates to the alarmist times we live in. Each song is a subtle warning of something not being quite right.” That statement feels even more apropos now and so far Maria has released three very good songs off the record, with the most recent, “Neon Light,” being especially so. You can listen to that, “I’ll Be the Death of You,” and “Death Engine” below.

We’ve been asking artists to make playlists of what they’re listening to at home avoiding COVID-19 and Maria has made one titled “Quarantine Audio Relief” featuring tracks from J Dilla, The Field, Daniel Avery, Crooklyn Dub Consortium, Rail Band & Salif Keita, Electronic Circus, and more. Of it, Maria says, “Determined not to completely give in to the paralyzing fear of being under attack by a lethal yet invisible enemy, here are some tips on how to keep your mind and soul occupied with something beautiful instead.” You can listen below. Maria has also offered up five films she recommends watching while stuck at home, including ones from Robert Altman, Hal Ashby, and Nicolas Roeg. Check that out below, too.
