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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

"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 (four 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.

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:https://youtu.be/qunnzffFTj0

re: is there a way I can c/p the tracklist from spotify?
Niels, yes you can do this by following these instructions:
1. First, make your Playlist Public on Spotify.
2. Sign up for a free account on SpotOnTrack (this only takes 10 seconds) - create a new username / password. then verify account via email.http://www.spotontrack.comSpotOnTrack uses a Spotify API for Spotify Data.
This site is not affiliated with or part of Spotify.
3. Wait 24? to 48 Hours? for your playlist to be indexed on SpotOnTrack. maybe the API retrieves data sooner?
4. Find your playlist, either by playlist search (this can be very slow as there are currently 3,008,564 playlists, so give your playlist a unique name) or by search for an artist then track that is included on your playlist (pick an obscure artist / track so that you can find your playlist easily)
5. When your playlist has been displayed, highlight the text you need from the bottom upwards with your mouse, right click copy - then use a text editor like Notepad on Windows 10 to paste the text to.
e.g forksclovetofu's 2018 Keepers playlist on Spotifyhttps://open.spotify.com/user/forksclovetofu/playlist/5F4O9GGhAEY5zYDDakpCuBhas 280 tracks at the mo, 9 followers
on SpotOnTrackhttp://www.spotontrack.com/playlists/2681487#tab-tracks(you need to be logged in to see this)data is grouped 100 entries / per page
and this is an example of the copy / paste to notepad (i have only included the first track)
data elements:track titleartistdate added to playlistBPMMusic Key
Added on 1 All The Stars (with SZA)SZA, Kendrick Lamar 2018-01-05 BPM 97 Key G#
it's not perfect, so you may need to do some manually reformatting in your text editor / Word Processor e.g Artist - Track
― djmartian, Sunday, 25 March 2018 18:13 (three months ago) Permalink
alright, thanks for sharing - a bit more troublesome than I had hoped, but it's always cool to see people are using the API to do stuff like that (recently found another one that lets you automatically follow all artists in your library)

I don't know what the name of the non-indie-pop indie thread is, but it doesn't have "rolling + 2018" in its title so I can't find it.
Anyway, I heard a couple tracks from this Frigs album, Basic Behaviour, on the radio tonight and I'm all in.
