Made up my mind to not like the Ill album for similar reason.
Not new music (afaik they're not still going) but if you haven't heard Superqueens, on the basis of the above you'd probably like them.
If you are the mood for some brutal heavy riff shit (brainbombs/flipper) then this is very good CAMMO cassette, by CAMMO
Tape is only £7 delivered to UK! tapes are the best for buying from abroad.
I kinda like it but struggle trying to understand it
ha I'm not actually going to listen to it!
Ebo Taylor - Yen Ara
The 81-year-old Ghanaian highlife/afrobeat legend has a new album out. And it's great. I hope I have that much funk when I'm an octogenarian.
This just makes me want to get up and dance:
I really enjoyed going to see Boys last night, new swedish band, kind of shoegazy dream pop type stuff, contrary to their name it is an all female group... their 1st album is just out. this is an excellent song.
Slow Mass - On Watch. Mr K picked this up by chance and now we're both obsessed.
This has been out for a while but has been getting a lot of plays while the sun is out.
(Larry Heard / Mr. Fingers) - Cerebral Hemispheres
Also loving this at the moment. The Oscillation - U.E.F.
trippy prog. electronic, space rock, krautrock
Drew Daniel (of Matmos) and John Wiese have a collaboration, Continuous Hole, just out.
I haven't actually listened to the whole album yet but I like the tracks I've heard from the new Aidan Moffat & RM Hubbert album.
I listened to this album 3 times in a row yesterday - it's totally brilliant. I see he's playing Supersonic festival next month (which I can't get to woe)
Only just seen that Viva la Void and Wooden Shjips have new ones out. Very enjoyable listening (a work colleague just told me not to turn the latter off! A first for me n music at work)
This is well worth it.
Now this sounds EXTREMELY good to me so far, think I was at this gig Fozzie Bear is this the sly and the family drone we were at? Whatever it is a v exciting sound!
I have a poster by the same artist who did that cover.
Nice! Unfort it is cd only it looks like, so no big sleeve
I'd go for a tape version, haven't got a cd player, you should get in touch with them!
Ohh they said "we'll see" about tape edition!
It's a great cover/poster.
Oh cool - August 2015 - yes it looks like we were at that one
Mad gig, will check it out...
I listened to the half thats on bandcamp last night, great recording, everything came flooding back! And actually at the end you must be able to hear M playing trombone ha, so it's a must-buy for me
My two top albums so far this year:
George Fitzgerald - All That Must Be. - For me this album really carries the flame of the exciting UK dance scene evolution from around 2009-2011, so much great music coming from the shadows of dubstep incorporating Garage, House and Techno. Most of the exciting producers from then now just seen to be producing straight House and Techno but this album really is outstanding. If you are a fan of people like Moderat, Four Tet etc then you will love this.

Young Fathers- Cocoa Sugar. I became aware of Young Fathers when they won the Mercury prize, and even saw them playing with Massive Attack in Bristol but their earlier work never really 'clicked' for me. With Cocoa Sugar they've really got me hooked. So many good songs on this album. You won't be able to get the chorus to 'In My View' out of your head...

New Kanye album is out too - only listened to it once, but it was sorta okay.
New Gruff Rhys album sounds marvellous:
This is just great.
New Virgina Wing out today so not given it a proper listen but the lead single is lush.
For those moaning last year about the lack of decent 'folk' stuff - the new Anna and Elizabeth one - The Invisible Comes to Us - might be what you are after, a brilliant modern treatment of tradition. I guess this is the most trad sounding song/treatment on the LP:
