New Bad Breeding.
Not strictly a new album, but 2 hours of frankly OUTSTANDING stuff by Autechre:
Warp Tapes 89-93 - Warp Tapes 89-93.zip
New Errant Monks
Nobody told me there was a new Earth album out six weeks ago....
Full Upon Her Burning Lips
It's the business... of course.
Freddie Gibbs & Madlib's much anticipated follow up to the 2014 classic Piñata is out today, "Bandana".
Some Finnish electronica. Out today. If you play games then you might know the guy, he did the music for Minit, Nuclear Throne and Luftrausers but this is his first album and I am enjoying it very very much.
Oooh, giving this a play now.
As far as I can tell it's a repackaging of their early 80s EP and LP. Nonetheless, it's an interesting listen:
The Quietus have their mid-year list up - loads of stuff I need to check out on here
The Quietus | Features | Quietus Charts | Albums Of The Year So Far Chart 2019
Thanks kb, will have a look through that when I'm WFH tomorrow
Insalar - Demedim Mi
Anyone for a 45 minute long Anatolian techno-folk tune? Baris K brings the acid chug, Cem Yildiz jams over the top. The whole thing is entrancing.
Here's part 1 (the A-side of the vinyl, part 2 is the same length and takes up the B-side):
Kali Malone - The Sacrifical Code
Exquisite pipe organ drones - highly recommended...
Still listen to stars of the lid/brian mc bride for my go to drone hit.
Lots to work through on the Quietus list. No Thom Yorke though.
Ellen Arkbro has a new LP out, also heavy on the organ drone:
Makes Ivor Cutler sound hardcore rave
Enjoying this double of proggy psychedelic stuff from one of the guys from King Champion Sound. Awful name, but you can't have everything.
International Teachers of Pop
Really enjoying this electro-pop album from Sheffield. It's packed with great tunes. A little bit Human League, a little bit Goldfrapp, or as the press release puts it "Moroder playing down a youth club in Rotherham".
Here's the video for After Dark, featuring Maxine Peake for some reason:
Presumably it's the latest incarnation of the eccentronic research council / all seeing eye / eye monster etc etc...
(looks like it's some of those guys anyway)
The rainbow grave LP is great (nick Bullen from napalm death/scorn with some other reprobates. Heavy as fuck)
Minimal Violence - Indreams
I've been listening to this album on rotation. I heard a couple of tracks on the radio and made a point to catch them at Citadel last weekend. They're genuinely the first interesting thing I've heard in new music for a long time.
One of the best albums I've heard in the last few years. I listen to it every day on the way in to work & genuinely feel excited every time I start it off. I can't really put it into words, so I won't. I just like it.
This is brilliant. Listened to it a lot this week. Thanks for sharing.
Catching up on my 'to listen to' list after quite a while - really enjoying this by the excellently named Mannequin Pussy:
Sure you like the album, but you really need to listen to more new music if you think this.
Good to see we've finally identified this year's Only Good Thing About Music Right Now though.
I thought ILL had saved music...was that last year?
ILL took the Only Good Thing About Music Right Now title in 2018, wrestling it from Idles (2017).
