    ...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.

    Jambinai are playing at the Academy in Islington (in the shopping centre opposite Angel tube) on Wednesday. Thanks for the heads up with this band.

    It seems the mystery of the missing record may have been solved.

    According to his manager, Johnny Jewel nearly died in Hawaii on Christmas Day 2015 and when he returned to LA destroyed every copy of Dear Tommy in the warehouse they were bring stored - 15,000 CDs and 10,000 records.

    So, now he's supposedly rerecorded the whole album and it'll be released... uh... sometime.

    Make of that what you will. Shocking rock star true story? Myth making? Too much coke? A 'dog ate my homework' excuse?

    Yeah, I saw that story. The death part and redoing the album may be true but I don't believe a record company is going to let someone destroy 15,000 CDs and 10,000 records and just write it off as 'one of those things'.

    I like Slowdive, rather than love them, but I'll certainly investigate this based on your decent reviews.

    Agree, it's a great album. Went to see him last night at Heaven and it was much fun
