Husband really rates These New Puritans' latest offering. I'm not convinced, but you might be.
Dababy "baby on baby". rap with very un pc lyrics. good beats. i dunno, I like this stuff but I am not going to defend it ever.
Experimental folk band Heilung have got a new album coming out in June. Am digging the live album very much, so will look forward to hearing that.
As an aside, the comments on this video are
Bogdan Raczynski- Rave 'Till You Cry
I'll say it if no one else will, the new mekons one is fantastic - proper mekons. Did you mean the wapping project regarding LC? Well looking forward to that.
AND ON THE PREVIOUS PAGE ha
Alright, fun police!
Its so good anyway tho
Little Simz' third album, GREY Area, is fucking belting. Here she is doing one of the tracks,Venom, live in a studio:
I've just been listening to this.
It's a great come back for the series after a 23 year break. One the one hand it does what Pay It All Back comps have always done - dub and electronics - but at the same time it reflects what's been going on since vol 6 came out in 96, like DnB, dubstep & grime.
Vol 2 has always been my favourite (Train to Doomsville!).
Re LC I meant this one - The Sky Untuned, which I think is different from the Wapping stuff, but I could be wrong.
I'll have to give this a listen . Vol3 was my fave .
The way she sings the word 'acetone' on the song 'Acetone' is my favourite thing so far this year.
e2a: I've now overplayed it and I keep hearing it in my head and now I think I've probably ruined it
Have to say I expected this to be terrible. Pleasantly surprised. Probably wouldn't buy it but it's very interesting.
Having been in the back of vans with 5-8 other people and a drumkit I hope they don't have to travel with their stage gear
When Mr K first told me about it, I also expected it to be terrible. But I love it now. We're actually going to see them live in November! Full sweat lodge experience
American Pleasure Club's new one is an interesting listen.
On reflex, this is great
The new Chemical Brothers album is their best in ages!
I've got this post rock/post classical/post folk album on this afternoon. Very nice.
I really like the sound they're making. But they don't half look like a bunch of bellends.
Music is a rich kid's game these days. Bellendery abounds.
Rich kids and middle aged men IME. Music with instruments anyway, electronic music is relatively egalitarian.
I can almost hear the collective tut as I post this... but that Chemical Brothers album is much better than it has any right to be. I was bored of the very idea of them, but thought I'd give it a shot and was surprised at how good it was.
King Champion Sounds - For a Lark
Cheating because it came out last year, but I only came across this because they're touring shortly. I see they got some Urban mentions in 2014 for earlier work, but nothing in 2018. If you don't like the track above, give one of the others a try before you make up your mind: they have one of those lists of influences that give you no clue what the band actually sounds like:
Is good, don't recognise any of the above in it though! And there is one song where because of the accent the chorus sems to go big red bottoms. One killer track (low hanging fruit).
Ajay from King Champion Sounds is a lovely guy, he has a number of other interesting projects (also not this year, but worth checking out)
Deeper And Deeper, by Deutsche Ashram
The Common Cold:
Shut Up! Yo Liberals!, by The Common Cold
No tuts from me, I posted that it was good a few posts up. Their best for ages.
He's turned into the fashion mogul from Zoolander.
This thread is more useful than any Quietus /Pitchfork. Quicker than reading six form wibblings of the Tarquins who write for the former as well.
