    I had tried that with one song yesterday, and failed. I think I've managed to find Slithering Lizards, which seems the most distinctive track title, so I'll give it a go once I've finished my current album.

    Exactly- who would've thought that Roma footwork would become a proper genre.

    New Eleanor friedberger is good in a non spectacular way. If you like that sort of stuff.

    The album is more low key than the live show I discovered, but they're from Bristol so you should be able to check em out easily enough

    They never seem to play here - bath is good enough for them though.

    I discovered today that Venetian Snares and Daniel Lanois have made an eponymous album together, and the review I read said it was very good.

    Got this album from Cath & Phil Tyler on heavy rotation atm - real nice northumbrian folk music. Timeless.

    Great isn't it - saw them play this stuff a couple of weeks ago - which was nice...

    If they were yanks it would be huge!

    She is a yank!

    killer b Nostrofuckingdamus

    oh lol.

    Y'know though. if they were doing yank alt-folk instead of an english take on the same they (could) be massive.

    Although now you tell me she's a yank, it suddenly sounds a lot more american...

    Cath Tyler is big into the Sacred Harp style of singing from the Southern U.S. I'm no expert on this - but my friend who I went to the gig with has been to workshops she's lead....

    And then there's the banjo :)

    Not sure the banjo means anything tbf - it's all over english folk and has been for years. I had a Topic LP of lancashire folk on the other day, all mill songs accompanied by banjo. I think the cross-fertilisation of english and american folk has run both ways for centuries...

    Yeah fair enough.

    Phil Tyler has put out a series of solo banjo albums which are well worth a listen:

    Drinks (Cate le Bon and Tim Presley) new album - Hippo Lite. Angular, melodic, enjoyable.

    hash tag never too old

    Recently bought: Metallica Seattle '89 - a poor quality live album. It's on a par with the Quo live double and nowhere ner Live at Leeds. Not their finest tracks, not a good performance, too much banter with the audience, too much audience and a drum solo. 3/10.
    Skindred's Big Tings - has lost the edginess and strength of Union Black and Kill The Power. 5/10.
    Parkway Drive's Reverence. A newish band to me so wasn't sure what to expect. Have only given it one listen so far and not bad.

    New Jon Hopkins album is out, Singularity. I like it a lot.

    I got it today and have just finished my first listen. It'll need more plays to fully assess and appreciate. However, on first impressions the melodic ambience works OK with the crashing breakcore.

    Oh, and kudos to my local HMV for having it in stock.
  27. Mogden

    Mogden I like tea

    I've been giving that a listen too as Emerald Rush, I think that's it, caught my ear. Blinding and almost tempted me to Latitude to see him but I'm out of the country.

    ouchmonkey Singe Gainsbourg

    Not sure this is really my kind of thing but it's bright and energetic and . . .

    1 - they're from Brixton and playing the windmill soon, so let's have some hateful local gossip about what dreadful bastards they undoubtedly are ;)

    2 - this has the feel of a song opposed to this weekend's ugly patriotitc frenzy and that'll do for now...

    helpless searchers for ILL - whole thing is on bandcamp and the first couple of tunes have amusing videos too

    killer b Nostrofuckingdamus

    Got this album by Adam Stafford on atm - he throws a lot in there: minimalist neo-classical, beatboxing, low-slung postpunk dirges... plenty going on.
