    Rumours that the new Chromatics album will be linked to the rebooted Twin Peaks series.

    (IIRC The39thStep you were of bit of fan of the last one right? Apols if I'm misremembering)

    Stumbled across the Loyle Carner album on spotify the other day, its been the first UK hip hop album thats really caught my attention for years. Its great.

    I won't hold my breath just yet. The mystery of what's happened to Dear Tommy makes the Laura Palmer case look straightforward. It's been over two years since the release date came and went. The four singles have all been excellent, but I've given up checking when the album might come out. Italians Do It Better have form for this though - I've been waiting over six years for Glass Candy's Body Work. I've lowered my expectations to hoping the album comes out before the Chromatics T-shirt I bought when it was due for release wears out:

    Always been underwhelmed by Gnod, always thought they should be better.
    Happily it seems they always thinnk that too.
    new one easily the best thing I've ever heard by them. it kicks ass.

    I've been listening to this on repeat the last few days - really nice. Echoes of old-school hardcore, ambient and hip-hop, all mashed up and heard through an open window, late at night in a strange city.

    Just heard Coco Hames track from a mix by an ex-urbanite and blown away, other two pre-release tracks on her band camp page are pretty excellent too. Really looking forward to the release of this now.

    this is pretty good, i went to see them probably the last time they played in london, in 2003, to the show that this review describes, they made quite an impression on me live

    I agree, they're not bad but I never felt they quite delivered on their promise.

    Agree about that track too, sounds like something early 90s on Big Cat or Amphetamine Reptile. Although I reckon it wouldn't have been any worse for being maybe 6 to 8 minutes shorter.

    I saw Gnod a couple of years ago supporting Hey Colossus. I really really didn't like them, found them utterly utterly boring - so I haven't bothered with them since. I should perhaps give the new album a listen....

    Wolfgang Voigt has a new Gas album Narkopop out on 21 April, his first under that name for 17 years. This trailer doesn't give much away, except that it sounds like Gas. Which can only be a good thing - Zauberberg and Konigsforst were about as good as ambient techno got.

    I picked it up in my excellent local branch of HMV (they seem to stock some quite left field stuff, for a home counties town branch). On the first listen it matches up to his first two efforts, and probably better than the last Fuck Buttons LP too.

    LP by french band Sida is pretty intense... probably the most interesting guitar music that will come out this year

  20. The debut album from Welsh-born Kelly Lee Owens on Smalltown Supersound is good. Ethereal female vocal electronica, art pop, minimal techno type stuff.
