    I just discovered that Andrew WK has a new album out. This will be of no interest to anyone on here bar myself, and it won't be anywhere near the quality of his debut, but I'm sure there'll be a few crackers on the far-too-long 52 minute running time.

    Not listened to him at all before, wrote him off as a Kid Rock-esque attention seeker. This reminds me a lot of Devin Townsend, though.

    I never really got on with them before, just a bit to twee for me, but getting a professional producer for this new one was a very good idea - they sound effin' huge now. Great album.

    His debut, I Get Wet, is a pop masterpiece in my eyes. Possibly my most listened-to album ever.

    What do you think of the message of their anti-brexit voters song Scum?

    Well, lyrically, it's shit, isn't it? Leave voters are 'fucking thick', 'scum', 'not welcome here'. Ignorant crap, but, on the other hand, I'm not looking to a pop group for insightful opinion on the EU referendum.

    Musically, though, I quite like it. Nothing groundbreaking, but a good twangy guitar line.

    Annoying, that lp better be great.

    Not a new album but a reissue of one of the all time great albums, High Rise II by High Rise. The power trio to end all power trios, a bloodbath of peddle stomping mayhem, Tony McPhee on steroids etc. etc.. Originally on the legendary PSF label (home to Fushitsusha, Ghost and others). First came out in 1986 but sounds like it was recorded tomorrow. Could be the best Japanese album of all time (only a couple of Fushitsusha albums and a couple of Les Rallizes Denudes albums are in the same class).

    Gwenno's new album is great! It's all; in Cornish, sounds beautiful. Feeling the vibes on this:

    I picked it up today, and am coming to the end of my first listen. Not bad. I suppose I don;t really want him to re-do and thus cheapen I Get Wet, although that will always be my first love. It's possibly closer to Meat Loaf, in a good way.

    I'm really liking the Khruangbin album, really laid back soul stuff that is just chilled as fuck. :cool:

    I see Grouper have a new one out soon, based on this track it should be decent.

    I feel like I should like them more than I actually do, if that makes any sense. They're just a bit dull.

    This, on the other hand, I finally got around to giving a proper listen to, and it's very good:

    Half Japanese released a new one a couple of months ago.

    The new hippies vs ghosts is pretty good despite a shit title and the best song being first up.

    Nice. I was just checking their tour schedule - they're going to be in Amsterdam in May, but on a Sunday when I won't be out there working, and none of the UK dates are particularly nearby. :(
