Keep meaning to catch up on back catalogues, but keep ploughing on with new artists and old favourites.

 

Started listening to Roxy Music and Can last week though and thoroughly enjoyed it.

 

Anyone fancy voting for a band/artist each week for everyone else to listen to, learn about and comment on?

 

Tied in the vote with new albums for the week so there's something for people who already know them inside out.  

 

Can add any other to the vote.

I'd be up for this though I have a broad but shallow taste in music, so not sure I could add much insight.

Glenn Roeder on Glenn Roeder.

I came for the banter, I stayed for deadman's line attenuation

Obviously voted Future Islands. Saw them in Paris summer before last by bribing security for held back tickets. :D

Got the new one yet?

Nothing stood out on my first listen like seasons immediately appealed.

Haven't heard the full new album yet. Couple of tracks sounded a bit lazy or re-workings of old ideas.

 

My main interest in them is the mix of 80's Manchester/Sheffield/Liverpool period of alt synth bands. There is a clear melancholy to most of their tracks that linger in the mind and actually don't reward too close a listen. It is something far away that promises to reveal itself but never quite does..This is their charm. There is some Psychedelic Furs, Icicle Works and Simple Minds creeping about in there as well.

 

Proper review to follow. My mate likes them cause the lead singer looks like his brother.

Joey Badass' new one is really good if you like your hip-hop a bit more traditional for lack of a better word. 


No. The blues are because you're getting fat and maybe it's been raining too long, you're just sad that's all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you're afraid and you don't know what you're afraid of. Do you ever get that feeling?

Not so new but I've been on Steven Wilsons "Hand. Cannot. Erase." a lot lately.

Lat week saw a 3 way tie between Future Islands, Fujiya & Miyagi and Joey Bada$$

 

Haven't listened to F&M but prefer the FI to the JB.

 

This week... it has to be a landslide right?

Listened to KL several times during the week and just can't love it. Though that goes for pretty much all of his work. I don't dislike it but don't understand the acclaim that he gets.

Ewerk is right.

PRIDE off the KL album was produced by Steve Lacy.  18 year old and he gets a track on the biggest album of the year so far... and he still works exclusively on an iphone!

Except he doesn't work exclusively on iPhone and that track wasn't recorded / produced exclusively on an iPhone.

Ewerk is right.

Did seem questionable like. Those irigs are $40 and get minging reviews for their sound.

The fucker is using a 330 Rickenbacker, a fender precision bass and "there is all this studio equipment", there is no chance he uses his phone and an irig to record the music he releases.

People just talk such shite.

The first few bars sounded so clean no way it was recorded without professional gear.
