New EMA (Exile in theOuter Ring) out 25th August
Sorry, I was a bit ambiguous. I got the new Slowdive and like it a lot. What I was wondering was if the new Ride is worth it (your bracketed bit implies not, but if you can confirm that'd be great).
Heard this on Late Junction the other week, can't wait to hear the whole album... Hannah Peel with a big ol' brass band. The album is called Mary Casio: Journey to Casiopia
I gave it another couple of tries but it doesn't hit the spot for me..... couple of pretty decent tracks but on the whole I found it very underwhelming....
my friend FINALLY got round to putting out his album, it is well worth the wait though, fantastic apocalyptic new orleans ensemble jazz songs... these guys are the real deal as far as jazz goes, they are playing music all the time and anywhere and everywhere (in the environs of Soho anyway)... it is quite an exciting scene, of course a record is never going to capture them live but this does a good job.
oh this is wonderful too, new album by david nance... takes bits of country rock and glam stomp but mixes it with hideous noise to very catchy effect
Tyler the Creator's new album ius out today. It's great!
OK, I'll probably only bother if I see it dead cheap somewhere, maybe at the end of the year.
Drunk In Hell are finally releasing an album, due out 13th October by all accounts.
This track from it emerged last year (missed it then somehow) - sounds like it may come close to capturing their live glory. Hope so anyway...
Think I might have finally found my album of the summer. The new ones from old Odd Future-ists Matt Martians - The Drum Chord Theory - and Syd are rather good too. Here's Syd's album Fin in full...
Like an apocalyptic update on Dariush-dolat Shahi's electronic music tar and sehtar.
Spoiler: holy error
i really like the new jlin
New Godspeed in September
Best album i've heard in ages. Saw them supporting Melvins last month (never heard them before) and got the CD at the gig.
ETA: Oops...released last year (but a new one is out this year so it's kind of a heads up).
Multiple Man - New Metal
BURNING CHROME, CROSS CONTINENTAL HI-NRG, FIRM HANDSHAKE ELECTRONIC BODY MUSIC as they describe themselves. This has really been growing on me. On first listen I thought "oh, some retro 80s EBM". And it is retro 80s EBM, but it's sooo good. I keep going back to it. The sound of dancing in a small sweaty basement club in 1989 next to a guy who looks like this:
Multiple Man - Luxury Boys
I'm not entirely sure, but I'm getting the impression they might be sightly cross about something. Someone should have quiet word with them about how attention-seeking is a counterproductive coping strategy.
Didn't you have a shrieking fit the other day 'cause a journalist slagged off a band you like? Don't think you're really in a position to be handing out advice on appropriate coping strategies.
That is quite splendid.
They are the best. Presumably a tour is on the cards too - go see them if they come anywhere near you.
So that's where Mike Doskocil went.
Drunk in Hell remind me of War Wolf
Drunk In Hell - "they think they're Brainbombs but they're really Status Quo"
apparently this was supposed to be a diss, but it seems a fair endorsement to me.
Just discovered Algiers' The Underside of Power - it's soooo fucking good. I thought you'd all be raving about it - their politics seems pretty switched on too?
Algiers, “The Underside of Power” – I N D U S T R Y D U M P
It's miles better than their first one which i was really looking forward to on the basis of the single - that single turned out to be the only decent thing on it. This one is a def improvement and the politics seem to also have advanced from panther-fetishism style-brand-dropping.
I missed the first one but this one is stunning. Believe a couple of Portishead people and Son))) involved in the production. The single is especially great - has an almost Northern Soul feel at times.
Just to be clear, i meant the single from the first LP - which is still the best thing they've done. Surprised they allowed anyone connected with far-right fellow travelers like Sunn O))) near them. Maybe it was the good one.
Oh it seems it was only someone who had produced Sunn O))).
ah ok - have you seen them live? Told they are "on-fire good".
Nope, they're here in november though.
Agree with you BA, this one is miles better than the, pretty ordinary, first album.
just go this The Cowboys record, def worth a go if you like fuzzy guitar pop/proto punk... it is more varied than that sounds tho, a nice listen all the way through
