    ...and it's good!

    I like electropop Goldfrapp much better than folktronica Goldfrapp.

    Hard to categorize this. The band is Korean and this album is noisy, heavy, discordant but also melodious, a kind of post-hardcore with lots of electronics involved, there's metal, hip hop (in Korean, which sounds amazing) psychedelic folkishness, post-rock ambience. CD arrived today, I'm on the second listen. Great stuff.

    Only really listened to Cascades. It's similar but sounds a bit more like Burial without the bass and percussion.

    I have to post a link to this because the CD arrived today in the post. It's blatant, unreconstructed, no-nonsense metal, with groovy-thrashy tendencies. Despite being by-the-numbers at times it also has some moments of genius and it's all extremely well done; tight, catchy, moshy, headbangy, bouncy and yeah basically excellent bang up to date metal. From France.

    If you like that kind of thing, have at it, it's fucking great.
    If not then well, I feel bad for you hon,
    I got 99 problems, but hating metal aint one.

    Link edited because this my favourite song on the album atm.
