Superorganism - Everybody wants to be famous

✖✖✖ (Moka), Tuesday, 2 January 2018 23:01 (eight months ago) Permalink

That's the only single that has been released around my radar in the past two days.

And yes! I've started a playlist this year too for you all to laugh about my taste: https://open.spotify.com/user/moteldemoka/playlist/4G8vQwgf0H6hDomIeFT3C4

New Tuneyards song “heartattack” is good. One of my favorite ones I’ve heard from them. Also Karen O and Michael Kiwanuka collab for Kenzo is good.

Also new US Girls single. And an Alan Vega cover by soft moon of juxebox babe, not as great as the original but still I have a soft spot for covers of songs I love.

Can we possibly separate tracks and albums this year? I like to trawl through the thread and it makes it difficult to do.

One thread for albums and tracks is more than enough. I'll throw in some faves soon. My spotify playlist already has about 50 things in it.

Agreed. This thread has been perfectly fine for umpteen years.

Johnny Fever, Saturday, 20 January 2018 15:39 (eight months ago) Permalink

Favourite thing so far is the Pantsula! comp of late 80s South African dance music. I'm far from an expert but I hear early house, Italo, Shangaan sounds. Cover is some notable album art too:

We seem to be in a golden age of African music compilations right now. I'll need to give the Pantsula a good listen. I am also really really enjoying the 'Sweet As Broken Dates' comp of Somalian music on Ostinato at the moment.

This is tremendous; it glowers and seethes like the For Carnation (Todd Cook plays bass) and Raime. Thanks for the heads up

Loving the new Helena Deland - Claudion

https://youtu.be/zUOaObWpCc8

Has some nice layered synths with what sounds like 90’s pop influence to my ears... similar to what Grimes was doing in Visions.

Walter Wolfman Washington 's latest album "My Future is my Past" has him singing ballads rather than playing lots of blues and funk guitar. I think it sounds great. He's based in New Orleans.

Tal National and Fatoumata Diawara are still top albums for me as well

a couple of recent Erstwhile releases have sort of reinvigorated my interest in the label.. that, and there's a 20% discount on all titles until August 15 (on bandcamp)

https://erstwhilerecords.bandcamp.com/album/mosquitoes-and-crabs
https://erstwhilerecords.bandcamp.com/album/my-trust-in-you

each album is a duo recording, each sounds both improvised and assembled (as collage) -- the Will Guthrie / Hong Chulki is probably the livelier of the two--featuring (heavy) bits of turntable and guitar wreckage, fragmented pieces of percussion and instances of straightforward drumming, electronics (sharp radio static-like sounds, etc.), and field recordings. they're both very well recorded--Mosquitoes and Crabs has a great visceral punch and prickliness to it.

My Trust in You (Marc Baron and Lucio Capece) is more varied, with lots of tape recorder/recording -fuckery by Marc Baron (along with other "analog devices"), and some lovely / atmospheric clarinet work by Lucio Capece. Capece is also credited with "slide saxophone, analog synthesizer and filter, drum machines, double looper, equalizers in feedback, regular and telephone field recordings, mini speakers in movement"

these albums are sort of a breath of fresh air, re: Erstwhile releases, and it's a good time to take advantage of the 205 off sale.

Future Me Hates Me By The Beths (which has been mentioned on the Alvvays and New Zealand music threads) is fast becoming my album of the year. So many amazing hooks crammed into every song and the harmonies/backing vocals are unbelievable. Could be this year's Charly Bliss.

Little Death is a probably my current favourite, but that keeps changing whenever I listen to it.

I'm interested

josh az (2011nostalgia), Wednesday, 29 August 2018 05:34 (three weeks ago) Permalink

Could be this year's Charly Bliss.

I was interested, but what I love about CB is that their very melodically strong crunchy guitar songs have a total pure joy x-factor. This Beths song doesn't. It's perfectly fine, but feels like it was written specifically to be just that.

Johnny Fever, Wednesday, 29 August 2018 12:15 (three weeks ago) Permalink

They're more akin to the more upbeat side of the Go-Betweens than Charly Bliss, imo. (It's a great album.)

wayne trotsky (Simon H.), Wednesday, 29 August 2018 12:18 (three weeks ago) Permalink

the beths album is great, i'm hit and miss about what hyped records i listen to but my favorite power pop band is the toms so i pretty much had to listen to it and i'm so glad i did even if it's for ultimately superficial reasons

Arch Bacon (rushomancy), Wednesday, 29 August 2018 14:15 (three weeks ago) Permalink

I hadn't made the Go-Betweens connection before, but I totally get it. That probably explains why I'm so obsessed with them right now as I've been on a big Go-Betweens kick recently. I guess they just remind me of Charly Bliss in the way it's brilliantly played indie pop with influences from the same era and tons of character. I'm getting that same rush that I got when Charly Bliss started clicking for me. She definitely doesn't have the same unique style that Eva does. Maybe this album has more in common with the Alex Lahey album?

Anyway, I'm hoping that The Beths take off on here and can make the end of year top five like Charly Bliss did. I think a lot of people will love this record.
