Fat white family were the winners of 2015, sleaford mods 2016 as I recall.
I'm enjoying the lead single from orchestral composer turned avant-pop producer Anna Meredith's new album - details & video here
Anna Meredith’s ‘Paramour’ – A Pop Koyaanisqatsi, With Model Trains
Care to to suggest anything else I might like?
I think I listen to quite a bit of new music. I listen to 6 Music quite a bit and really haven’t heard anything noteworthy in ages, except maybe Shame’s last album but that’s over a year ago now. I didn’t dig Fat White Family much nor Sleaford Mods.
Ooh, MP is much beloved by one of my favourite bands ever, Slow Mass (whose incredible album On Watch you all cruelly ignored last year ) so I am now listening and am well into this
well... if I'd only heard one new band of note in a year on the radio station I was listening to, I'd probably try a different radio station.
(I've posted most of the albums I've been into this year so far on this thread, but I'm not sure which ones you'd like, if any)
(I'm not slagging of Fontaines DC btw, who are a decent enough band - but it's totally impossible that out of the many millions of hours of new music that's come out in the past year, you wouldn't absolutely love loads of it - it's just a matter of getting it to your ears)
Actually I just gave fontaines dc a proper listen finally because of thread... it does have some fucking great songs in, and it is a indeed a v exciting sound!
I always get into these bands tho ha
New Inspectah Deck out now.
What did you make of black midi?
Dunno, not checked them out yet - should I?
The first song on the album is great, nice Swervedriverish guitars. The best track by absolute miles though.
Yeah bunch of teenage/20-year old south Londoners making pretty complex noise. It is number 1 on the Quietus list after all so prob worth a check.
Ha. That's one of my least favourite (probably cos I have seen them do it live so many times and like the newer ones like Near Dt, MI and Western)
Bending the rules a bit but the last Normil Hawaiians album (What's Going On?) is being reissued this month. Early 80s post-punk legends that practically no one has ever heard of.
To get myself in the mood, I've been listening to More Wealth Than Money, their epic double album debut, reissued a couple of years ago.
Play Sally IV (from More Wealth Than Money) and pretend you always liked them.
a friend of mine highly recommended the 3 Points Festival, but I don't think I can be asked going all the way to Miami for a festival.
this is good ta. I think reissues are ok in this thread fwiw - just in the album of the year thread they're excluded.
This EP of country-ish indie pop from Los Angeles is very enjoyable (she's touring the UK next month too)
Have A Good One, by Johanna Samuels
Yola - Walk Through Fire. Very good murricana via bristol album.
Rod Modell - Captagon
Rod Modell has carved out a space in techno over the last 20 years as part of Echospace, Deepcord and various other aliases, making foggy, minimal, hissing semi-ambient dub techno. So his new album is a bit of a change, taking his usual sounds and making a pounding 140 to 150 bpm techno album.
Here's the completely awesome Air-Port:
Guts - Philantropiques
This is going well with the hot weather, French/Afro/Carribean jazz house.
Finally got round to the Little Simz album and it is indeed really excellent
The Warmduscher album from last year was pretty good, but the one coming out later this year sounds IMMENSE from the preview track... iggy pop and kool keith guesting on it too
Warmduscher Joined By Iggy Pop On New Album 'Tainted Lunch'
New Cult of Luna album in September, apparently.
Eluvium did a new piano one. It's superb.
doggerel, fontaines dc, some cracking songs, others less so, but still a bit of a rush
I think it's pretty much excellent throughout.
^ I imagine the ones I'm not so down with at the mo' will prove growers.
Cherubs' Immaculada High is lovely and noisy on the first listen:
No music yet, but I've pre-ordered this new LP on God Unknown blind - a collab between Ex Easter Island Head, Laura Cannell and Charles Hayward can't really be anything other than brill can it?
Whistling Arrow, by Whistling Arrow
Oh sounds good.
Still not sure if EPs count, but Charlotte Adigery's EP is excellent.
