Strongly recommend you get your lugs round the new band project by Graham Coxon and Rose Elinor Dougall - The Waeve - like nothing I've heard for a while - strangely atmospheric song writing - sounds like something from an undiscovered 70's archive - Sunday chill out zone
Billy by Horsegirl is the most sublime piece of early 90ís(esque) shoe gaze lol-if feedback frenzy Iíve heard for ages
Their debut album is worth a listen too - lots of Sonic Youth and general indie grunge shoegaze lovelies in there - just out last year + they also just released some weird early demo album thatís about as weird and experimental as you could image - just sounds like them messing about in the studio half pissed or stoned or something - somehow though the complete and utter steaming pile of random, unharmonious garbage they came up there is strangely alluring nonetheless
Whatís with the current trend in bands deliberately singing unharmoniously, or out of tune but yet it sounds so good and why?
Itís not a new thing by any stretch this but loads of new stuff Iím getting into is like this
I just bagged me a ticket to see the legend Richard Thompson play in Edinburgh in June - been waiting for years for him to come back to Scotland (never seen him before) Been listening to his albums all day he really is a talented and diverse folk musician - just listening to 1000 Years of Popular Music (2006) and there's this jazzy woman singing on some of the songs - don't know who she is but she's got incredibly soulful and husky tones
Really turning out to be a good year for music so far - this new 80's electro pop synth wave dark wave De-vo Ultravox esque from Seattle (Telehealth) only got three tracks out so far but they're all bangers - No Time Lost has more darker tones and beautiful melody - this one here is more bouncy and highly infectious (recommend not watching the video and just listening to it - hope they didn't waste too much money on that garbage - really spoils the song IMO
