Post-Brexit is unsatisfying. ILX can do better.

All of these albums just make me want to listen to this song by Ought:

Yeah, I get the impulse but tying it directly to "post-Brexit" seems like a good way to ensure this whole scene is dated in amber and subject to an expiration date and I think some of this stuff deserves better.

I think it goes well beyond London and the UK even. There's definitely a big upsurge in post-punk revivalism at the moment and I'm not quite sure what's spurred it. Some of the bands have been around a while, yeah, but it feels more like a "thing" now

dry cleaning are also good

more discussion here best out of the current-ish crop of post-punk bands people and algorithms keep telling you to listen to

the moment in Paddling where they shift to double time for the rest of the song is so good

the guy totally is doing a MES / Byrne / Hell / ?mashup thing… or maybe just James Murphy, lol. The music sounds good, but the vox are a big impediment for me (even though I like some of those other singers).

Like ufo, I hear plenty of Talking Heads in the gtr – but yeah the grooves are stiffer

my first impression was that he was doing both XTC vocalists circa-White Music at once.

can definitely see why some people might not be able to get past that but I think he's good for this group. plus the decision to make his voice so crisp & up front is pretty interesting. usually they try to bury singers like that a little

what's the deal with the cover art and inserts? are they AI generated?
