    I'm sure I bought a remix of one of the album tracks a couple of weeks ago- maybe Morgan Geist remix or similar???

    I noticed in HMV today that the Afghan Whigs have a new one out, In Spades. The reviews I've since read suggest it has more in common with their comeback LP of three years ago, rather than their 90s heyday, so I may give it a miss.

    Jane Weaver has a new album, Modern Kosmology, out in a few weeks. It's really good. Loads of krautrock influences, it sounds like classic era Stereolab in places. Here's the track that's been released ahead of the album:

    Slow Motion

    I'm just giving this its first listen, and it's as you'd expect, ethereal and fascinating. Epithymia is its name, by the way.

    ooh I didn't expect anything much from them but the new Black Lips album "Satan's Graffiti Or God's Art" is my favourite thing they put out for ages, I had kind of lost interest but this is a good dark record. It's long, and doesn't have any of their garage punk pop hits really, but all the more interesting... kind of a bit "exile on main street". also features fat white family assistance i believe.

    A new Mogwai album, Every County's Son, is due out on 1 September. It's produced by Dave Fridmann, and apparently it's a long record.

    TLC release their eponymous album next month, the first recorded since Left Eye's death in 2002. Snoop appears on the first single, but other than that it doesn't seem they've made any attempt to replace her, thankfully.

    It's pretty good, better than the last one anyway (IMO). If you don't want to buy it, it's on Spotify or YouTube too.

    Yes, the Observer review last weekend said it had more shades of the earlier albums than ...Beast, so maybe I'll give it a go at some point. It said Dulli managed to flick between his twin emotions of pain and anger well.

    I'm not sure when the new album is due but the new song from Meatraffle bodes very well for it

    This has been getting a lot of play here - awesome stuff, it's a frontrunner for AotY for me so far. Anyone that hasn't checked it out already should do so. :cool:
     
  20. I've been listening to Alfa Mist - Antiphon quite a bit over the last month. London based cool down tempo jazz with some hip-hop elements. Really nice stuff.

    Have Just listened to "Is This The Life We Really Want", another Roger Waters dirge. Whilst I was at it, and not quite in keeping for many reasons
    I am enjoying the soundtrack to Suicide Squad. Looking forward to Royal Bloods new album, out in a few days.

    Giving Sinjin Hawke a listen today - bit more bombast than Forest Swords, mixed with some 80s-fused beepy bits, but pretty good overall:
