On Spotify now. Tis good, I like it.
...and it's good!
I like electropop Goldfrapp much better than folktronica Goldfrapp.
Really enjoying the new William Basinski
Quite fancy that, how's it compare to his previous?
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.
This is nice, thanks!
Just heard this today - a Ugandan Shangaan Electro-y thing - on first listen sounds good.
The tracks that have emerged so far from the new Richard Dawson album are amazing - one of them opens this episode of Late Junction. The actual album is out in June... BBC Radio 3 - Late Junction, Max Reinhardt interviews Can
really digging this today - arpegiatted synth stuff, quite wild and heavy in places, melodic and warm in others.
Anyone heard the new Southern Tenant Folk Union album?
Bought it as I got an Amazon voucher from my brother ,loving it
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.
The new Arca album is fucking great!
New Joe Goddard album is very excellent.
I heard the new Slowdive album today. Very, very good on first listen.
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.
Loving the new dopplereffekt album 'Cellular Automata' - dark twisted ambient soundscapes....
this about the polaropposite of dark, twisted, ambient soundscapes:
Spotifying this album now. Enjoying it so far.
Another Daniel Romano out on the 19th May, he's turning them out like The Fall.
I'm all over this today
Simultonality, by Joshua Abrams & Natural Information Society
Is good. Reminds me a bit of Land Observations but with energy instead of a cool detachment.
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 have this tape on repeat in the car atm: minimalist percussion for the most part. Stick with it.

Man I love Slowdive. Always will. Listening to the new album at the moment and not disappointed so far!
And not have it backed up anywhere ha
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
