I'm going to use this thread as a running tally of music I find out about over the year that I like. I invite others to do the same.

So is this intended to be for 2015 releases only? Because I hear fantastic stuff that's new to me all the time, but it's usually somewhere between 5 and 50 years old by the time I hear it.

Ronald Raisins (Old Lunch), Friday, 23 January 2015 18:13 (three years ago) Permalink

The first two things I posted were 2014 releases, so no. The slant will likely be towards 2015 releases but there's no intentional restriction.

Ned gave me this link to GABI last week and said I'd probably like it. He was right. This song is very, very reminiscent of This Mortal Coil for me in its arrangement/impact and Gabrielle Herbst's gorgeous voice.

Ned also linked this K-X-P track to me earlier today and I have played it three times in a row because it sounds like Stereo MCs covering KMFDM with hints of "Breathless"-era SPK hinting around the edges:

I do not understand why I like Death Cab For Cutie so much, but I do. Not enough to actually get any of their albums mind you, but I get obsessed with their assorted singles.

This is INCREDIBLE and, two songs in, I adore this in a way I have never loved the original album; in fact, this is an album where I have always liked covers of the songs from it more than the original songs.

Ned mentioned that he interviewed 2:54 so I thought I'd look them up. According to Spotify, this is a 2014 release and according to my ears, the first song "Orion" is fantastic.

The album is pretty great IMO. I didn't even hate the "Rapture" cover even though it's wholly unnecessary.

^three hour 80's goth hits mixtape:

Curated last year by the always-intriguing S13, the mix delves into the dark territories—we’re talking the deep cuts, none of this ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead’ stuff. The boisterous deathrock of Mighty Sphincter, Specimen’s Batcave trashiness, the artsy weirdness of Red Wedding and early 4AD stalwarts Mass, evocative and angular sounds from Skeletal Family and Red Temple Spirits and touches of propulsive EBM all feature in this massive mix. Highly worth revisiting—or discovering for the first time.
