    Yeah - the vocals are not that special - but with such monster riff action I'm more than happy to forgive. Was listening on my train to work this morning - beaming from ear to ear....

  11. Part 2

    Part 2 bizarre wanking accident

  12. Mogden

    Mogden I like tea

    Django Django with Marble Skies has been very pleasant


    Am I allowed to talk about ones I'm looking forward to?
    Leon Bridges - Bad Bad News got stuck as a serious earworm this week
    Boy Azooga - unfortunately a bit skint or else I'd be off to Notts next month for this
    Father John Misty sounds like it could be good but apparently there have been mixed opinions about it. I think Lamacq played something other than Mr Tillman to Marmite reviews this week.

    The Off Me Nut Allstars Vol.3 is a great collection of everything Off Me Nut. Over 40 tracks covering bassline, jungle, happy hardcore, donk and lots more

    First album from Vive La Void, otherwise known as Sanae Yamada (one half of Moon Duo with partner Ripley Johnson from Wooden Shjips). The album is also called Vive La Void. Good album this, don't think there's a duff track on here. Pleasing melodic electronic gubbins all the way. Some instrumental tracks, some with Ms Yamada's breathy vocals. Reviewers will bandy about phrases like krautrock, motorik etc. but that's their business. Moon Duo albums (the obvious comparison) have some great songs but they invariably include the odd upbeat, high tempo clunker which mars the mood for me. No danger of that here. 4 stars out of 5 is my initial verdict.

    Vive la Void, by Vive la Void

    Hjördis-Britt Åström – VI
    Galatée – Sans Titre
    Хьёрдис – Разрушение

    Three albums so far this year by Dimitry Gruber from Rostov-on-Don. He’s been churning out music for the past four years – 250 albums, EPs and singles under various aliases on his Hjördis-Britt Åström Bandcamp page since 2014, all by him and sometimes a vocalist. I’ve been digging through his stuff for a while - it’s not especially ground-breaking stuff, most of the tracks are 2:30 to 3 minutes long and there’s some repetition in the catalogue, but I like his sound, there’s some absolute gems in there, and for the last year or so he’s really been honing his style, becoming someone to watch.

    The Hjördis-Britt Åström album is an electro album.

    Galatee (Gruber with Kathleen Greenglass singing in that deadpan French style) is synthpop.

    Хьёрдис (Guber with Marianna Diakova singing in Russian) is more indie.

    Despite the different styles they’re all recognisably his and all very good.
     
  18. This video makes me smile and the rest of the album of lounge funk tracks from Khruangbin isn't bad either.

    Saw these guys yesterday and had to buy their album straight away. Locked heavy sax/drums workouts - for fans of Colin Stetson, Horselords, Dead Neanderthals. Catch 'em live if you can.

    rutabowa YUPPIES OUT

    Right having given this record a proper listen and seeing them do it live last night I can confirm this is a v special album,definitely up there competing for the top for me. It is very varied, each song is its own world, as well as surprisingly moving, despite using elements of pastiche. A very singular creation

    Their support was from Dog Chocolate who also have a new record out. Dunno if the record is for me but I highly recommend them live, way funnier than 99% of "comedy" and also actual cool tunes when they get going

    I want to give them a listen, but boy are they hard to find on Slsk with a name like that.

    Looking for a track title, if the band had a fairly generic name, always used to work for me.
