Much better than that sh*te. That stuff she does with Body/Head is awful self indulgent wank. Couldn't listen to it went to see Kerbdog instead that night.

this is really growing on me, it's so relentlessly tense.

Mention of Angel Olsen a few posts up - her track on the Mark Ronson album is fantastic (though naggingly similar to something I can't put my finger on...):

New Swans album out today, Leaving Meaning, bound to be a very uplifting experience.

Lankum's new album, The Livelong Day, is also out today. Saw them last weekend and they were predictably fantastic. The outro to their version of The Wild Rover makes me think of traditional meets Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

I've only listened to it a few times but that Michael Kiwanuka album seems good to me. No bad songs so far as I can tell and the interludes are pretty interesting. Maybe the Dangermouse production style is a bit familiar at times - if I was being nit-picky - but it certainly seems to be a strong album.

Agreed, short but no drop in standard from everything she's done before.

Not to everyone's taste, I'm sure, but for those who like that sort of thing the new SUNN O))) album, Pyroclasts, is pretty good. I actually think some of it - maybe the first two songs - are semi-accessible for this type of music. They're properly suffocating and enveloping, but they have a grandeur to them that doesn't make them impenetrable.

also liking the Kiwanuka album, agree about the Dangermouse production making it sound quite familiar, also reminds me a bit of Jungle's first album.

I'm not feeling the new FKA Twigs. Think the songs are pretty ordinary underneath all the - admittedly quite interesting - studio jiggery pokerey. Cellophane is a good song and maybe Home With You as well but there isn't too much else blowing my mind on it.

New Tindersticks album out. They've been around for so long now. This one sounds slight but promising.

Reminds me of last year’s Lux Prima album, which Dangermouse produced. Also, I can’t listen to the track ‘Final Days’ without thinking of Gnarls Barkley’s ‘Crazy’.
