The new Flaming Lips album, Kings Mouth, is very nice. Much of it reminds me of Yoshimi. There is however narration from Mick Jones throughout which is annoying.

I’ve been listening to the Soft Cavalry (Rachel Goswell & Husband)’s album the past few weeks. It’s pretty decent once you get past the disappointment of it not sounding very like Slowdive.

Cherubs - Immaculada High.

Been listening to this all weekend and can't recommend it enough. It will be in my top ten for this year. Anyone who is a fan of Metz or The Melvins check this out.

Spent most of today listening to this. I love it!

The guitar sounds so abrasive and distorted throughout, but the riffs are absolute dynamite. Definitely one of the best of the year.

This is my favourite at the moment -

Finally getting around to giving the new Banks album (III) a proper listen - really good stuff. Her best yet imo. Thought the first record was great and the second one slipped a bit, but this one is the finished article.

Blanck Mass has a new album out. Everything he has done up to this point has been solid, so hopefully it won't dissapoint.

The new Bon Iver is a return to form. Thought his last one was poor in spite of all the critical acclaim.

After a few early misgivings, I can attest that the new Blanck Mass is solid. Some of the reviews are saying it's a bit much and too abrasive, in which case they're falling victim to the age old problem of pretending to have listened to earlier stuff by the artist they are reviewing; so many music reviewers are totally full of shit. Definitely more mellow than his last two albums, by some distance. Maybe doesn't have the amazing highs of his previous stuff, but a more consistent record overall.

Loads of new stuff to listen to that I'll have to get around to: Tropical Fuck Storm, Sleater Kinney - though I have low expectations on that front - and Bon Iver, even if I kinda hate everything he's done except for the first stuff, but, sure, lookit...

Yes, the lack of similarity was a bit of a disappointment to me initially, but it is actually quite a good album. Feels a wee bit like "Slowdive-lite", perhaps.
A good enough album on it's own merit, & I guess the best way to assess it.
On a related subject, the new Ride album is quite tasty.
Now, a new Slowdive or Minor Victories album would be nice...!

The new Tool album is predictably superb.

Our's "Strangers With Guns" came out on Friday. I'll link it through bandcamp because it's just a URl but it's all on major platforms

If any of you are fans of bands like "Rollins Band" "Butthole Surfers" or "Melvins" you might dig us. We also have Mik Pyro cameo on the track "Monkey King"

I’m loving Sandro Perri’s album, Soft Landing. I don’t think I’m familiar with any of the influences. The only thing that jumps out at me as a possible antecedent is Fleetwood Mac’s Albatross.

The new album by Alex G, House of Sugar, sounds very good at first listen. Strong Elliott Smith vibe off a lot of the songs in places, feels like an album that'll offer more with further listens:

The new Girl Band album, The Talkies, was released yesterday. It's good to have them back, a cut above most Irish bands.
