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.

“Caribou” by Earth, Wind, & Fire
Bedbug Posted - 06/15/2018 : 11:31:51
Burial is an interesting listen

“Rodent”
Bedbug Posted - 06/14/2018 : 05:01:25
“I’ve Been Tired” by Michael Murray

The whole album is eminently listenable

They remind me of The Pains of being pure at heart as well, Flasher live, from the perspective of one camera angle

Just on my second listen to the new album. It's very good and Pressure is a nice uplifting indie rock track.

XYZ, Punching Up, Business Unusual or just the whole album

Material is so the first second of Debaser as well.

Not a bad wee indie band there Jake3^^^ I'm checking them out on Spotify (three month premium trial for 99p!) I like their boy-girl lyrical composition

A Flock Of Seagulls are back, and they all look like Frank Black now

It's all about Jesus and shit this but it never fails to make the hairs on my neck stick up. The one before, 2nd last track Pegasi is also a folk classic.

I think she has one of the most beautiful voices of any female folk singer, and she's complex and quirky.

Wor Jess.

So what was the point in Weezer covering Toto's Africa if it just sounds almost exactly the same? It's a great song, and they did a fine job rerecording the same song in exactly the same way, but they just didn't add anything to it, or give it any kind of new Weezery edge to it whatsoever. Because a devoted fan called Mary from Africa asked them to do it apparently.

There were some dudes who played "Sunny Afternoon" by the Kinks on my train yesterday, so that's been playing on my headphones all day today.

Great song.
pot Posted - 05/23/2018 : 11:39:34
Correct
Bedbug Posted - 05/23/2018 : 09:50:00
Is not "Louie Louie" by the Kingsmen one of the greatest tracks ever laid down?
Bedbug Posted - 05/16/2018 : 13:25:17
The Better Call Saul soundtrack is nice and moody.

Remember an album from them years ago that was alright. Now they sound like Pavement.

Track 11 - Half Book claims somewhere in the lyrics that the "latest Pixies' records suck" but I can't work out the context because there's no sleeve.

I recal they were also slagging off Coldplay on their first album, but that was perhaps more deserved.





He's quite fond of old Pixies anyway.

Pixies are probably my favourite band of all time. I guess, together with some other bands, they made me like music. All the songs off of Come on Pilgrim just sound like they’ve always been there.


That track is decent, it's a bit like Parquet Courts.

I Like Fun - They Might Be Giants new one & Nanobots from a few years ago. On a TMBG binge at the moment. Also Eleanor Friedberger's latest 'Rebound'(singer from Fiery Furnaces mentioned above).

Leon Bridges - "Good Thing"

Post Malone -- various tracks

Just checked them out, not bad



Blueberry Boat is their best lp, imo.



That's the one I listened to. Enjoyed it.

The new Twin Shadow is album is amazing. Really soulful, and catchy tunes with a bit of an 80's Prince-esque edge to them.

Heard one of his tunes a few years ago and quite liked it but never actually listened to a whole album. Check out the new one #Caer if this kind of music is sometimes your thing.
Bedbug Posted - 04/27/2018 : 11:11:57
Yikes!

The Go Team!’s cover of Bull in the Heather is the best thing I’ve heard in years.

I have a headache way down in the base of my neck.

On a bit of an R.E.M. kick today.

They were good.

Last night I put on "A Tear For Eddie" by Ween, and someone said, "Oh, Pink Floyd?"

That's about as high a complement as you could ask for.

"The arc of triumph"


Sorry to quote myself but I've moved on to Pinkerton now and oh my God! I'm disappointed that I haven't had this album in my life up until now. Tired of Sex, Across the Sea, El Scorcho...all had an instant impression on me.

It sounds so much more raw than the blue album, it sort of reminded me of Surfer Rosa.

Still FRIGS

Ok I've listened to Rock 2 a couple times the past couple days.

Very good album, no surprises, definitely closer to Moist Boyz than Ween, but still a solid 11 tracks.

So far The Ritz Carlton is my favorite.
Bedbug Posted - 03/22/2018 : 06:35:43
New Dean Ween Band album "Rock 2" is out.

I've only heard snippets so far, but you know it'll be good.

The new FRIGS album is growing on me exponentially
