St. Vincent has released a stripped down piano based version of MASSEDUCATION, called, unsurprisingly, MassEducation.

It's a mixed bag so far, in my view. Some of the songs really work when slowed down and stripped back but others, mainly the faster and busier tunes don't really work for me when they cut back into skeleton form. It's an interesting experiment nonetheless and some of those songs like "Slow, Slow Disco" are brilliant.

Also because the instrumentation is so relatively sparse St. Vincent has allowed her voice to come to the fore and a thing that's often overlooked about her is that she's a great singer - she adds a lot of depth and pathos to some of these songs just with the added emotion of her voice alone. Totally worth a listen, even if it doesn't all work.

Nice one. Agreed re her voice. Seen quite a few state they've been left cold by Masseduction but I loved it. New version of Slow Disco is lovely.

What album have you come across in the month since release that is worth a listen?

For me - Brian Jonestown Massacre - Aufheben.
Weird!

Default page went back to the first one there.

I certainly hope you're all gonna head in tonight?

New album from Daughters - You Won't Get What You Want - is released tomorrow, their first in eight years. They still sound great, a massively underrated band. Fans of IDLES should enjoy this.



I remember being blown away by their last one. At the time I'd never heard anything like it. It still has the ability to blow my mind. Hopefully they'll get their due for being totally awesome this time around. Here's one from back in the day -

Surprised there isn't more love for that Daughters album, it really is immense. Album of the year material IMO.

Anyway, Julia Holter has a new one out Aviary. Hard to know what to make of it so far. It's a whopper, coming in at 90 minutes in length. I was afraid she was becoming a bit safe and boring, but she appears to have gone off into "difficult" territory with this one. May be no bad thing.

I really liked her last one after disliking Loud City Song. Only given this a couple of listens so far and she is stretching it on this one. I don't think that I'm patient enough to wade through it all.

Absolutely a contender for album of the year. I've had it on repeat since it came out. Superb album.
