Album Recommendations 2019

Discussion in 'music, bands, clubs & festies' started by Buddy Bradley, Jan 4, 2019.

  1. Spandex

    Spandex A crazy bulbous punchbag of sound

    Ladytron - Ladytron

    A self-released PledgeMusic funded comeback album after a seven year hiatus has no business being this good. The whole record sounds like peak career Ladytron from the mid 00s.



    I just hope my physical copy turns up - PledgeMusic's seems to be collapsing just as the record is due. Ladytron don't have much luck with record labels. They were on Telstar, which went bust. Then they were on Emperor Norton, which was taken over by Rykodisc and closed down. Then they were signed by Island, but their A&R man left and the label gave them no support. Now this.

    Oh well, the album is amazing.

    Boy Harsher - Careful

    Another great synthpop album. They've polished up their sound a bit since their first album and this is closer to their awesome Country Girl EP from 2017: all gloomy electro-goth and poppy EBM .

    I saw Errant Monks live a few weeks ago and like what I heard, few albums out from them this year which is nice.

    Also, Mr K tipped me off about Gum Takes Tooth as he works with one half of them, and I like their style:

  20. butchersapron

    butchersapron blood on the walls

    What we really need is the trimdon garage explosion. Old w/c folk songs like TGE done in the style of pussy galore. I had hopes of the mekons going that way when they were doing the old song as part of their set. Never happened. Alan Price did an EP with that title back in the 60s though.

    killer b Nostrofuckingdamus

    some of these are a bit garage-y (although they're also the least folk-y)

     
  22. Part 2

    Part 2 bizarre wanking accident

    New Teeth of the Sea...

    The new Claypool Lennon Delirium album is pretty fun, interesting prog/psychedelic 6-7 minute epics. Sean Lennon doesn't half sound like his dad.
