New Nils Frahm is excellent

groovypanda, Friday, 26 January 2018 14:21 (three months ago) Permalink

i'd say the new nils frahm is allright, not more. as the title says quite melodic. easy listening background stuff.

Ich bin kein Berliner (alex in mainhattan), Friday, 26 January 2018 14:58 (three months ago) Permalink

Frequently find James Blake’s music boring but his new song is glitchy and chopped up and I love glitchy and chopped up.

^ i did make a fairly useless thread about peggy gou but i have not been able to shake this one track. classic larry heard-ish house business combined with the same sort of lovely breezy pop sensibilities as someone like dip in the pool

btw that's Peggy Gou - It Makes You Forget (Itgehane)

faust apes (NickB), Wednesday, 31 January 2018 22:09 (three months ago) Permalink

Oh heard that song earlier today through beatport’s top 100. I love it too.

Every time I see the name I can't help thinking: Peggy Gou, Peggy Gou, pretty pretty pretty pretty Peggy Gou.

There’s some amazing songs I hadn’t seen anywhere else on that JF.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Monday, 5 February 2018 21:28 (three months ago) Permalink

That has 33 more tracks than my tracks list! My albums list is just:

Various Artists - Pantsula! The Rise Of Electronic Dance Music In South Africa 1988-1990 [sounds like shangaan x Italo x early house everyone should love this]
Fire! - The Hands [free jazz good times]
Weirdest Dream - White Worms [yr standard analog synth explorations always a treat]

Another fan of that Pantsula comp here

boxedjoy, Tuesday, 6 February 2018 11:52 (three months ago) Permalink

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.

Badgers (dog latin), Tuesday, 6 February 2018 12:04 (three months ago) Permalink

that Fire! track is nice, like their combination of heavy grooves and free spirits

I just heard the Rae Morris album, and I'm just going to call it that it'll make the top ten in ilx's 2018 poll.

― President Keyes,

It's definitely winning 2018 for me right now.

Johnny fever please don’t leak the results

faust apes (NickB), Friday, 9 February 2018 18:55 (three months ago) Permalink

I really like Atletico but the first couple of tracks of the album proper weren't really doing it for me. I'm convinced to give it another go.

evol j, Friday, 9 February 2018 18:58 (three months ago) Permalink

Getting really addicted to Mor Mor - Heaven’s Only Wishful
I have a soft spot for songs that are sung continously low key and monotonic until the end where the singer starts sing-shouts. Selena Gomez Bad Liar did this too.

This Rae Morris album is wallpaper.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 9 February 2018 22:51 (three months ago) Permalink

don't get the rae morris love. the single do it was heavy handed

digging the new half waif. beautifully layered vocals, rich bed of synthetic sounds.

"Keep It Out": https://youtu.be/Iou7N2oJq3A

The two Helena Deland singles and the two Amen Dunes singles released so far are great. I think those two + US Girls are pointing out to be my favorite albums in the first quarter of 2018.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Thursday, 15 February 2018 19:28 (three months ago) Permalink

"Dark Oscillations" by Loma is pretty trippy-- spacious production, choral effects, almost proggy feeling. I think younger Hunt3r would deem this cheesy, but not now. Entire album is beautifully assembled.

Hunt3r, Tuesday, 20 February 2018 17:08 (three months ago) Permalink

That Loma album is great. Recommend you to listen the albums from the bands forming it: Cross Record and Shearwater. The former in particular (wabi sabi) is amazing.

✖✖✖ (Moka), Tuesday, 20 February 2018 17:16 (three months ago) Permalink

thx! i'm psyched to check that Cross Record album.

Hunt3r, Tuesday, 20 February 2018 18:08 (three months ago) Permalink

monthly update:

The year is still young but I highly doubt anything will beat this one, or even come close: Camp Cope - How to Socialise & Make Friends
https://campcope.bandcamp.com/album/how-to-socialise-make-friends-2

Alela Diane - Cusp

Marisa Anderson - Cloud Corner

Marisa Anderson reminds me of Adrian Legg a little bit, w/o all the fucking around with the tuning knobs.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 5 March 2018 22:21 (two months ago) Permalink

Favourite albums:

Mgmt - little dark age
Ionnalee - everyone afraid to be forgotten

I'm not sure how much anyone cares about French music around here but I really like the new album by this band called Feu! Chatterton. It's kind of hard to describe, it fits the nouvelle chanson française descriptor I guess, sounds a bit Gainsbourg-y in a few places, singer kinda overdoes the romantic/sad Parisian poet thing at times but I don't mind. Here's "Souvenir", give it a shot:

Also enjoying the new Eric Chenaux album which is available to stream over at The Quietus:

With the new album, I think Young Fathers have now moved into my all-time top 200 artists.
They're so primitive, so lo-fi, and yet so stylish and layered and lush.
Not mind blowing, just consistently fine.

I cannot thank all of you enough for introducing me to a ridiculous number of great new tracks. I'd add "Shape of My Mind" by Halifax quartet Neon Dreams, which is a brilliant exercise in use of negative space, sing-along double-choruses, and "HUH"s. https://open.spotify.com/track/0Ue01ZUf4zOY65gVmSjP9t?si=vJIVziXjQkOzjXbQLbiJBA
