I really enjoyed listening to songs others ilxors queued on turntable/plug/outloud but it was live so you had to be there to queue songs and there was no easy way to archive and listen later. Would there be interest in a “ilm listening club” in the form of a private, collaborative spotify playlist? Only rules would be to not delete other people’s songs and only post one track before another ilxor adds another, so if there’s at least two people sharing back and forth the playlist keeps rolling…
Idk I’ve discovered some amazing tracks via this year’s noms playlist and get lost in the individual rolling threads so if several ilxors are interested in participating it could turn out into something great.
― ✖✖✖ (Moka), Tuesday, January 24, 2023

I like the idea of a current year listening club starting after the polls with a thread where people comment on latest additions (offhand or Tim F style). I would aim for 3-7 songs per week, either on first-come first-served basis, or people mention when they have a song they want to post and Moka adds it.
― Nabozo, Wednesday, January 25, 2023

Post whatever you want to share here in accordance with the general guidelines above and it will be added to the playlist if it's available on Spotify US.
YouTube, Tidal, Apple playlist copies are welcome and encouraged; please post here.

We can change that or start another listening thread for "released whenever" as best meets interest.

ok this is good i think? Avalon Emerson working with Bullion - I don't know who did what but it's a fairly unexpected curveball from Emerson, an indie song apparently about our smallness as individuals against the vastness of time. Very pretty and serene but there's also this undercurrent of strangeness and unease. Anyhow, two very disparate artists but both generally liked by ilxors, seems worth mentioning at least...

Cécile McLorin Salvant’s new album, Mélusine, is due March 24 on Nonesuch; vinyl is due May 19. Mélusine is a mix of five originals and interpretations of nine songs, dating as far back as the 12th century, mostly sung in French along with Occitan, English, and Haitian Kreyòl. They tell the folk tale of Mélusine, a woman who turns into a half-snake each Saturday after a childhood curse by her mother. The track “D’un feu secret,” Michel Lambert’s 1660 air de cour, is available today, along with an animated video by Amanda Bonaiuto that may be seen here.

New single from Rosalia is seemingly one of her most straightforward pop songs to date, including a chorus sung in English, but still experiments with styles, textures, and tempos.

Rian Treanor & Ocen James • Agoya

from the Rolling Club Music (Non-Bobbins, Non-Techno) 2023 thread:

Jordan said:

First great release of the year, Rian Treanor & Ocen James (a Ugandan fiddle player) on Nyege Nyege, really fun and interesting record
https://nyegenyegetapes.bandcamp.com/album/saccades


I said:
count me in as well. first album to go in my 2023 Potential EOY Albums playlist.
not all the tracks work for me (I find things like “As It Happens” too ‘experimental’, for want of a better descriptor), but the highs are Himalaya-like (“Agoya” and “Naassaccade”!).

bonus points for occasionally triggering my Palais Schaumburg pleasure centres.


went with “Agoya” here, it’s more instant and the interplay between Treanor’s (I assume) string instrument and James’ fiddle is amazing. not sure he’s even on “Naassaccade”, but that one’s exhilarating too.

New Caroline Polachek song “blood and butter” sounds great on headphones and has a very gorgeous 90’s vibe. William Orbit-esque?

Echolalia is 0 experimental for Yves Tumor! Sounds fun. I’m not quite hearing Outkast… I know it will probably sound insane but the first band that came to mind was Dandy Warhols.

Aiming for Enrike: a Norwegian guitar + drums duo formed 10+ years ago. That lineup may put you (ie me) in mind of e.g. Hella, and their early stuff seems in that vein (or it could just be that I lack better references), but they've certainly gone places from there.

I first heard "Empty Airports" blind, and assumed it was one of those electronica producers/projects that liked their sounds beefy rather than spare; was then happy to find a live youtube video. The thing is split across three tracks on Spotify; I'm not sure how well that fits with playlist policies, but there you are. I'd recommend something else from the album, except I haven't got around to it, being somewhat obsessed by this bit.

Some hyper-garbage from Denmark. I'm kinda obsessed with the time signature of this track (apropos the year-end thread)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUbutpdbe5s

The verses are in 6 (3+3) and then the chorus is in 4 (2+2), so the pre-chorus switches back and forth, and is in 8, then 7, then 5 (or rather 3+3+2, 3+2+2, 3+2). Check it from 0:37. It's a great way to connect the two different parts of the song.

The whole album is out today, and is very good, imo.

"Nightstand" - dreamy little ballad from Dev Lemons, who I guess runs a fairly popular music account on TikTok? this was my first exposure to her via spotify recs

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EZre5OC9cA

checked out her other stuff and she's got a bunch of great hyperpop tracks as well

Roz, Saturday, 11 February 2023 05:17 (one year ago) link

That Dev Lemons song is great! Nice find.

The Avalon Emerson/Bullion is enjoyable in a very The Sundays kind of way, sort of a drastically different direction from what I know of AE.

That Treanor/James track was good enough that I am working through the album. Plenty of keepers!

Lisa O'Neil's "Old Note" is very much a song where I can connect if I'm in the right headspace and otherwise I run screaming. Nice to have those kind of tracks available to help accentuate moods properly.

Aiming for Enrike are another major find for sure. The full Empty Airports cycle is worth bathing in.

Fever Ray's new one is great of course; they're playing at Terminal 5 later this year and I may have to force myself to get over the ticket price and the venue just to have the experience.

Will dig into the Braxton and Aperly High shortly.

saer, Thursday, 16 February 2023 10:32 (one year ago) link

have been really enjoying the new album from abracadabra (a duo from oakland who have been at it for a few years now i think), an enjoyable mix of talking heads/tom tom club/esg/lizzy mercier descloux-style post-punk along with more dubby/psychedelic sounds and some good bloopy synths. bandcamp blurb also references deerhoof and mort garsson, and as the album goes on you do feel there's a richer fusion of influences than your initial impressions might have led you to believe. anyhow this is the lead track from it, the steel pan drums lending a lovely sparkle to things, like sunshine reflecting off a lake:

i really like the idea of this thread - essentially a non-genre based rolling 2023 thread - and had been trying to get the motivation to start something like it when i saw that this thread was already going. i listened to the playlist so far and there's lots of cool stuff on there. the abracadabra song was the one that jumped out the most.

i'm adding wretched lie by the tubs, from their album dead meat. it is indie rock, kind of halfway in between a new zealand jangle and a more aggressive u.s. sound. their singer sounds like richard thompson and writes some great vocal hooks. fans of the goon sax or the smiths might be into it.

I just got the Tubs and it RULES, haven't loved an indie rock record like this in a while.

Trouble in Mind is such a great label.

the Richard Thompson thing is kind of uncanny but seems like it's just his voice.

another influence that stuck out is Bob Mould, but specifically early solo and some Sugar stuff not Huskers

"wretched lie" might not be the most representative song bc it is on the extreme end of their jangliness/smithsiness but the hooks are undeniable. "i don't know how it works" and "sniveller" are two other favorites but the whole album is good

I've been digging the Oakland-based Zamrock band Orchestra Gold, whose new album Medicine was released in January. The lyrics are in the Bambara language. I can see some people here dismissing this as sounding too retro, but they know how to kickstart the old sounds in a contemporary, rough-edged but hypnotic way.

Presuming this remains a relatively benign space to make contributions, I figure this might be the one thread I continue posting to on ILX as I almost always have a new song that I want to share and would likely otherwise be abandoning the shared playlist.

Composer/saxophonist Sam Gendel continues his remarkably prodigious, diverse and and excellent recording output with the just released COOKUP LP. It's a clever, loving and suitably twisted selection of 90's/00's R&B covers. I'm only two listens in and my fave cut on the album is still a toss-up, so I'd really recommend exploring the whole thing. It's on the streaming services or Bandcamp.

That said, it's hard not to like this reimagining of "Are You That Somebody?" as a recitation of a Woman-Seeking-Man personal over synths, vibraphone and assorted trippy percussion.

So I got an idea for two collaborative playlist/threads in this same vein, let me hear what you think:

ILM club listening

ILM home listening

Two playlists with no genre/decade restrictions, one for sharing “party” music that we’d play to make ILM dance… cumbia, house, pop, salsa, hip hop, funk, disco… and one playlist for more introspective listening jazz, ambient, experimental, singer-songwriter…

Not sure about the names and of course what some would find as party/home music might not fit the bill for the next person but you get the idea.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Wednesday, 27 September 2023 14:38 (four months ago) link

I think separating them into two main moods could help into making them workable playlists. Of course we’d probably end up with a playlist that shifts into a scorching soul piece from the 60’s then into a 20 min IDM piece or bubblegum pop followed by 60s ska but I think it’d be interesting either way.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Wednesday, 11 October 2023 23:29 (four months ago) link

No restrictions in genre or decade.

Also no restrictions on the number of tracks you want to add, I’d even encourage to post two or three tracks to set a vibe that might or might not be disrupted by the following person. That said, please try not to add too many tracks at once so it doesn’t become a solo session.

There’s no contest if a song is better suited for the opposing playlist… some genres like say r&b could be suited for both home and club listening… it’s up to your criteria where to add them. If you think a 20 min sludge metal track makes for a dancefloor filler, well why not?

This is not streaming anywhere that I can find it, but I'm extremely interested in this record by goat (Japan):

This seems to be the only mention of this album on ILM - I don't know if there are any discussions of their earlier albums (they're not the easiest band to search for), but this album is great on first listen.

So there’s some options.

Empty the playlist and Change the name of the playlist to 2024… previous songs can be send to an archive.Or make a new playlist… but if we’re doing this every year I’ve found is easier to just keep using the same playlist otherwise you end up with a bunch of playlists.

sounds like a good idea with an archival catch all playlist and then just keep going with this one

corrs unplugged, Tuesday, 23 January 2024 15:07 (four weeks ago) link

Aight every song from 2023 has been moved to this archive playlist:

https://open.spotify.com/playlist/4nDuSiSubdcuTA1u9Fh9sd

Previous playlist has been clean slated and changed name to ILM LISTENING CLUB 2024!

Adding the first song:

Bullion feat Carly Rae Jepsen - Rare

I haven’t even heard it yet but it’s Bullion and CRJ and we love them on ILM don’t we? Worth a mention methinks. Will report later on if it was a good choice or not.

Oh also new Fabiana Palladino produced by Jai Paul. And new Discovery Zone… I won’t hog the thread and add them yet but yeah probably should listen to those too.

You know what forget the Bullion track, I’m leaving it clean until I can decide which song I want to throw in. I’m seeing so many updates

✖✖✖ (Moka), Thursday, 25 January 2024 04:34 (three weeks ago) link

oooh i look forward to hearing the discovery zone! need new thread though??

Oh wow. Had no idea that track even existed.

Thanks Moka

ILM also loves a bit of Nia and the new track finds Ms Archives in a more reflective mood

anyone starting a matching playlist on Tidal? I would but work often keeps me too busy to keep up regularly and Tidal doesn't do collaborative playlists

and I reckon "Lucky" by Erika de Casier should go on it:

I was just about to post that one! But then let me post another good Danish one: Astrid Sonnes dubtechno/chamberpop hybrid Say You Love Me
