New Beach Bunny EP is pretty great. 

It came out at the end of last year, but I've also been enjoying No Driver by I Love Your Lifestyle. I think you might dig that. 

That I Love Your Lifestyle one is lovely stuff, and the Beach Bunny EP was good too, ill have to watch out for them in the future.

We had a rule at work one season where the fifth time Moves Like Jagger played we got to go home.

Happy new year to the few people who read the music forum! Royal Blood have opened 2021 strong with a new banger of a single and an album announcement. Already probably a strong contender for my

Darkside, the project of Nicolas Jaar and David Harrington, are releasing a new album. They released a song for their new album at the end of 2020. This song is so great. I put off list

I optimistically bought tickets to see Beach Bunny in April at the end of last year...

It's a flipping great album imo. Top 3 for the year so far (I'm on 70 odd albums). The only thing that doesn't quite do it for me is the sort of odd quiver the singer has on his voice. It feels... forced? Musically at absolutely slaps as far as Experimental Rock goes. :)

Yeah I'm really digging this. 

Also loving the new Goat Girl and The Weather Station albums. Feels like there's some really good stuff kicking about at the moment. I liked the Arlo Parks record, but it hasn't truly stayed with me. 

My pal's record label also did their first physical release this week, so if anyone fancies supporting a very small start-up label, check out Another Country $$$$, 'GRIEF STRICKEN LISTED BUILDINGS' which is now streaming. Won't be for everyone.

They just had him in that "Re-United States" commercial during the Super Bowl too. What's more working class and will reunify people more than a drunk driving charge, Boss?

Currently digging:

Imposter by Miss Grit

Before Sunrise by Nana Yamato

Somewhere by Sun June

And a bit of a departure for me, Yellow River Blue by Yu Su, which is a cool electronic album. Also think the new Slowthai album is pretty good on first few listens.

I will add these to my listening piles. 

 

 

Recent albums to catch my ear: 

Imperial by Soen (leader from AOTY for me)
Shyga! the Sunlight Mound by Psychedelic Porn Crumpets
A Common Turn by Anna B. Savage 
Death By Rock and Roll by The Pretty Reckless (saw them once, ten years back at Download and they didn't do much for me, but this album has surprisingly grabbed me) Posthuman by Camera

I started the Slowthai one and then got caught up on work calls, I'll have to give it a fresh listen but I wasn't that bothered by what I heard. The Pretty Reckless needs a fresh listen too, I heard one track off it and then got side tracked. Lots of new stuff there for me to try though.

Dark & Beautiful Secrets by Normandie (Swedish rock so I was bound to love it since Sweden make great music) and I Only Want To Live Once by John the Ghost (solo project by the frontman from The Maine) will be my contributions to the pile.

Their publicist confirmed they've broken up. 1993-2021.

I way late on this, but Hospital Bracelet's debut is real good. It suffers from the problem where previous versions of some of the songs are better (Sober Haha Jk Unless in particular is just too slowed down for my taste), but the new stuff (especially Feral Rat Anthem and Summer Friends) is great.

Fuck. Mars Volta are releasing a $500 vinyl boxset of all their albums and the Tremulant EP, plus a vinyl with two unreleased versions of Eunuch Provocateur and A Plauge Upon Your Hissing Children - and a demo version of the De-Loused album.

I can't justify that purchase, but I'm going to try like hell to find someone selling that De-Loused demo album. One of my favorite albums of all time, I need it. I already have the original on vinyl, and the singles from the album, so this would be a nice addition if anyone happens to put it on eBay this year or whenever.

Thought the Architects album was... perfectly fine. If you're looking for that sort of metalcore-goes-mainstream type sound, I think Parkway Drive's latter albums are better personally.

As a Sheffielder I should love BMTH but, they really don't do it for me. Last few releases have been exceptionally average art pop/ "avant-garde" stuff. The lead singer does own a very good vegan bar-meets-restaurant here though.

I was listening to the Mars Volta the other day. Lovely band. Nothing tops their first two albums, but the last three albums are interesting.

While I'm way more of a ATDI guy myself De-Loused is wonderful indeed.

I love the ATDI guys and have loved all of their output (with the exception of solo albums). Did you ever listen to ANTEMASQUE? That was their solo punk album with Travis Barker on drums. Pretty good. 

*Not Travis Barker. Flea on bass. Travis Barker played some live shows with them.

I've actually heard a couple songs a few years ago. I haven't heard the full album but I may enjoy it. Just added it into my pending albums playlist n spotify. Thanks for the reminder.

I looooved De-loused and Francis the Mute when I was younger, no way do I have that kind of money but fuuuck the De-loused demos would be cool to hear.

I did a listen through of all TMV's stuff a few years back and, well, apparently I have different opinions to other fans... :ph34r:

Bedlam = Frances > Octahedron > Noctourniquet = De-Loused > Amputechture.

**ducks for cover**

I'd go Bedlam > De-Loused > Frances > Octahedron > everything else in no particular order because meh.

De-Loused is one of the best albums of the early 2000s though, in my opinion. It took a while for me to come around on Mars Volta - was originally shown Cicatriz ESP when the album came out, didn't like it, then a few years later when Frances came out, I was sucked in by The Widow, but stayed for stuff like L'Via (because I was going through a "prog" phase anyway). And then I heard the title track and was obsessed - and Cassandra Gemini as well.
