Friend on that Mandel collection sounds a lot like Arthur Russell.

MikoMcha, Monday, 23 April 2018 06:24 (eight months ago) Permalink

Allow Me to Destroy You sounds like Ariel Pink, even the title.

MikoMcha, Monday, 23 April 2018 06:25 (eight months ago) Permalink

Wait... so the vocals on Friend ARE Arthur Russell??

What's the story with strange comp? I feel like this is another moment where the whole decontextualised experience of Spotify fails me.

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.

Warm Bodies - s/t

Chris L, Monday, 14 May 2018 12:11 (eight months ago) Permalink

If the ilxor tracks poll was done mid-year No tears left to cry would be the winner.

Caught this guy at Dot to Dot festival on Friday - delish ambient-jazz Mark Hollis vibe.

Kinda obsessed with the new album by Flasher, after reading about it on Bandcamp. Jittery postpunk with endless hooks. This video is suitably loopy:

none others

Ain't gonna start a standalone thread for it, because my track record with those is poor, but I implore everybody lurking in this thread to listen to Kadhja Bonet's 'Childqueen' album:

After making possibly the worst EP that I listened to last year, Laure Briard has bounced back with one of my top 3 EPs of 2018 so far. Recorded in Brazil, sung in Portuguese and steeped in Brazil's recent musical history, it gets the balance between her pop and experimental tendencies exactly right this time.

You can stream the EP on bandcamp here:

The new Jaye Jayle album is tremendous.

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

Forgot to say I also got 'round to Toni Braxton's Sex & Cigarettes in July - a seriously overlooked album? It's very good anyways.

Jeff W, Wednesday, 1 August 2018 15:14 (five months ago) Permalink

I love Ciara but I just can't co-sign a song that includes the line "yummy all in your tummy."
