    Their debut Violet Cries showed promise but for the most part was only just above average. They've really outdone themselves here and evolved their dark, ethereal dream-pop sound for the better. Probably the best new album I've heard so far this year.

    Have a listen here:

    I came across this yesterday.

    pretty dark.... folk tunes... although there's some strange distorted noises in there too.... the microphones might be a decent reference point.

    worth a listen

    Can't say as I do,some of their songs are just fantastic esp with the female vocals.This track wouldn't sound out of place on a pixies doolittle era album.

    Adam Ant folks!! - and Ye may cast me out of the Alt & Indie forum if you wish for posting this here.

    Came across news of new album today in today's 'Metro'.
    Released 21st Jan
    can only find 2 full tracks - this the better of the two

    Based on what he's churned out over the last 25 years or more I fully expect the album to be shyte and will prob give it a spotify listen at best. Worth a listen tho, i reckon, if you're familiar with his early 'B-sides' stuff/first Ants album era and some of the b-sides of the early pirate era when he knocked out some great, great stuff. The above has echoes of that era but pales in comparison. It's likely a vain hope that he'll hit the mark again in the foreseeable but being ever the optimist an' all......

    Only reason I post is that I do have a lingering soft spot for mr Ant. How could you not like these (Read: 'excuse to post'):



    I've always considered him an artist of the highest order - mad as a hatter to boot. I've been intrigued by his trials and tribulations over the years. I will be eternally grateful for this track - this live version (in particular) only adds its sumptuous sexual overtones IMO [:P alcohol, eh?]:



    I predict that this man will die in extraordinary circumstances just after having produced a masterpiece.



    Thank you A&I for indulging me.

    I've been listening to this quiet a bit over the last few days. I had already heard Breakers a few times previously and was impressed by it and the new direction the band have taken.

    I was a big fan of Gorilla Manor, with it's instantly recognisable sound and catchy songs. This album is certainly a lot darker, the songs certainly aren't as initially memorable. However it really is a grower, the vocal melodies are still there, but more refrained.

    Certainly is going to get plenty of plays from me.

    Self titled debut from American singer-songwriter Torres. Very nice album indeed! cracking voice and brilliant lyrics.




    Sorry can't embed for some reason.

    Wooly, now that I'm paying attention it seems I should have directed the above thanks at Heisenberg, not you.
    Thanks a million Heisenberg - couple of listens in and blown away by it.
    Wooly, it's all good - you've got good taste! ;)

    How to destroy angels_
    Welcome Oblivion

    Haven't listened to it all yet, but I love the track "A Drowning"
    The album is streaming on Spotify.

    Spotify link here!

    Having listened to it all the way through, I still find the songs like ice age and a Drowning the most appealing. I like the opening track also. Definitely needs repeated listens.

    haha no worries, was just agreeing with ya at how good album was on first listen, more so than his first album, took a while to get into that. Would love to see him gig here soon.
