Ezra Furman Announces Sex Education Original Soundtrack

Following the success of last year’s Twelve Nudes, Ezra Furman announces Sex Education OST, songs from season 1 and 2 of the hit Netflix TV show. The 19-track LP will be released via Bella Union and is available to download and on DSPs this Friday, Jan. 24th, with a physical release on CD and vinyl to follow on April 10th.  To celebrate Furman has shared “Every Feeling”, the standout track from Season 1. “Every Feeling” was inspired by a bad bout of depression: “I was so bored of having these feelings year after year, I just wanted to feel them all and get them over with.”

“SEX EDUCATION,” SEASON 2: THE DOCTOR IS IN

When it débuted on Netflix last year, the British series “Sex Education,” created and co-written by Laurie Nunn, established itself as one of the freshest, funniest, and most humane depictions of teen life in years. (Its second season came out on Friday.) It centers on Otis (Asa Butterfield), a mild-mannered teen who, despite being a virgin in a dorky windbreaker, in the first season becomes a sex therapist to his high-school peers. He’s got hangups—he won’t even masturbate—but, all around him, the world is bursting with vitality and lust, and, because his divorced parents are both sex therapists, he’s got the concepts down. A savvy classmate, Maeve (Emma Mackey), notices his talent for giving advice, and the plot unfurls from there. “Sex Education” has fun with its concept and characters while respecting them: we get to know people through their intimate vulnerabilities, alongside diagrams of genitalia and phrases like “scrotal anxiety.” As they manage their clinic and their lives, Otis and Maeve fall in love, but not at the same time. The writing and performances (many by relatively unknown young actors) are so sharp that, by the end of the first season, the status of each relationship felt like a cliffhanger.

The Songs In Sex Education Season 2 Will Get You In The Mood (Yes, That Kind Of Mood)

It might seem tired to use the Divinyls’ masturbation anthem “Touch Myself” for a scene of yes, you guessed it, Otis (Asa Butterfield) touching himself. But, the Sex Education season 2 soundtrack is wired because it found a way to switch the track and make it something truly iconic. That’s why every song on the new season of Netflix’s Sex Education will get you in the mood. To do what, you ask? Well, anything your little heart desires.

'SEX EDUCATION' SEASON 2 SOUNDTRACK: EZRA FURMAN ANNOUNCES SOUNDTRACK ALBUM RELEASE

Ezra Furman’s music is a vital part of Sex Education’s soundtrack, with songs like “Love You So Bad,” “I Can Change” and “Devil Or Angel” featuring across Seasons 1 and 2 of the Netflix show. Furman is such a part of the Sex Education world, in fact, that he cameoed in its first season as the singer at the school prom.

Ezra Furman Is Angry. Aren't You?

The white noise makes Ezra Furman’s airhorn of a new album Twelve Nudes intensely gratifying. The 33-year-old singer-songwriter, an under-the-radar indie darling for the past decade who recently gained a new audience on the soundtrack of Netflix’s popular Sex Education, rails against the wealthy and powerful with lyrics that could be straight out of the Little Red Songbook and feedback-rich punk riffs straight out of CBGBs.

6. Ezra Furman - Twelve Nudes (Bella Union )

A howl of rage at the state the world, and especially the USA, delivered in 28 minutes of furious punk, with a little glam rock on the side, but never is it hollow. As Furman declares on ‘Evening Prayer aka Justice’: “If you’ve got the taste for transcendence. Then translate your love into action. And participate in the fight now. For a creed, you can truly believe.” Amen to that!

The 50 best albums of 2019

7. King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard — Infest The Rats’ Nest or Fishing for Fishies – Daniel J. Willis

There was a debate among our nominating committee which of the two albums King Gizzard released this year should go on the list. It wasn’t easy because they’re so wildly different. The first, April’s Fishing for Fishies, is a psychedelic rock throwback with bluesy undertones, reminiscent of the early ‘70s. The second, August’s Infest the Rats’ Nest, is a Metallica- and Motörhead-inspired thrash metal manifesto about environmentalism. Eventually we realized that if a band releases two albums worthy of consideration that aren’t even in the same genre, they had a good enough year to crack the top 10 with their combined effort.

NPR

NPR's Best Albums of 2019

No music I heard this year convinced me I could hear my own cells dividing like Designer, Aldous Harding’s approachable, enigmatic third album. It’s lovely, but how do you explain it? The New Zealand-born Harding writes songs in familiar, folk-simple forms but appends them with odd angles that sometimes land like jokes and sometimes like warnings. Voices emerge from the depths to thread hints of peril or restlessness into the fabric of gentle melodies. Harding’s lyrics are filled with poetic images that slip away when you try to grasp them — she’s spoken about her desire to resist interpretation. (With her flexible but utterly distinctive voice, she sometimes reminds me of Cat Stevens, if you never had a single clue what Cat Stevens’ songs were about.) The title track stops and starts as if looking over its shoulder to see if you’re still there. “The Barrel” could be a consideration of motherhood, or it could be about creation and destruction, a tale of a minor deity, off in a corner of the universe, a god sinking her fingers into clay, shaping a new world by rules as she imagines them. All that inscrutability could be off-putting, but Designer is the kind of art that rewards questioning. It only frustrates if you demand answers. —Jacob Ganz

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard announce North American tour

Next spring, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard will play a trio of “marathon” three-hour sets that pull from their entire 15-album discography, including this year’s Fishing for Fishies and Infest the Rat’s Nest. The plan is to not repeat a single song, and even then they likely won’t cover their full catalog. Now it looks like they’ll have time to dig even deeper into their cumulative tracklist, as they’ve today announced a full North American tour.
