i'm so thrilled about some albums lately, but i don't want to make a new topic for each one, so here's the list:

DEERHUNTER - microcastle
i just discovered this a couple months ago, and it's easily one of the best albums i've ever heard. i can't stop listening to it!

THE HANDSOME FAMILY - honey moon
beautiful, nearly flawless album. rennie sparks never disappoints. great summer night album.

ANIMAL COLLECIVE - merriweather post pavillion
haven't stopped listening to this one since january. endlessly wonderful.

Listening to Pixies this week -- for the first time in a long time. This new album is fantastic.

Tool is cool

I went to see mclusky* on Friday. Great gig. So many brilliant songs. They're probably the band I most associate the 'Pixies sound' with, even if they are their own beast with Falco's brilliant and witty songwriting giving them something different.

Oh right. Didn't know, thanks for the heads up. *takes note of the Drones for future listening*

Listening to some stuff on Youtube now. Detecting a subtle Nick Cave influence in this track

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXLYHt7T1FA

A fellow Ozzie. The last track on the TFS album "Rubber Bullies" has a bit of a Nick Cave to it as well.

The new 24-7 Spyz album is quite good.

Saw them in the 80s at the Limelight

Tropical Fuck Storm

Some psych rock outfit from down under. Just discovered them. This is a really good album, bluesy rock with some nice vocals. They remind me a bit of Black Mountain with the main difference being the female vocalist isn't a bit annoying, quite the opposite in fact.

That's a really incisive remark. The lyrics are definitely adult.

I found a fox
Caught by dogs
He let me take him in my hands
His little heart
It beats so fast
And I'm ashamed of running away

I just picked up the first of her remastered box sets (the first seven albums) and every song sounds like it has taken a shiny bath. Most fans say that the period 82-85, The Dreaming/Hounds of Love, was Kate at her peak. I definitely agree.

Incredible.

Husker Du otherwise, as well as Pink Floyd bootlegs from the 77 tour.

I joined the cult of Souled American / 'cause they are a damn' fine band


This one is my favourite from Pornography.

Purple Mountains - s/t

I've been listening to the new David Berman album for a few weeks now. Always loved those Silver Jews records.

So sad to learn of his death. Can't say this was unexpected. It doesn't take the sting out of hearing these news, though.

I can't stop listening to Radiohead at the minute. OK Computer on repeat.

The new Mark Mulcahy album The Gus. Another solid consistent album to add to his impressive repertoire.

Can't be fucked with Thom Yorke. It's nothing but a Radiohead wank party these days on the radio. It's like listening to how shite my own life would be if it was someone else was experiencing it.

Berman is where mid-life crisis art-rock is at this year.
Bedbug Posted - 06/27/2019 : 08:13:36
I am trying out this new Thom Yorke thing, Anima. So far so good.

A lot of people dig this guy it seems. And as the podcast mentioned, he seems to dig the Pixies.

David Berman is back apparently, with a new album and a new band called Purple Mountains

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZKMa-ByLBQ

He's my favourite Jew of all time. Of the band the Silver Jews that is anyway. Last time he released an album I was in Holland, living on a chicken farm.

Also,

BROADCAST

aka Trish Keenan. Been going since the early 90's apaprently, yet unknown to me until today when Radio 6 played one of their songs. Very Stereolab, but more lo-fi/indie/experimental and less acid jazzy. Well worth a listen to all their albums. I just did the full back catalgoue on Spotify, not a bad way to kill another afternoon in the house with a gammy leg.

Can some explain this to me? a hip hop song by Frank Black & Ike Ellis that just came up on my Spotify release radar. Clicking the link on Frank Black takes you to Frank Black the alt-indie rock stalwart's Spotify page. p.s. this song is shit and I'm only listening to it because it said it was by Frank Black

Today I learned that "Dream On" is an Aerosmith song (thanks to office radio).

I always thought it was Led Zeppelin or the Stones or somebody.

Annoying song to say the least.
