New Jape is getting good reviews, lot's of 'his best album so far' comments. Also the Careerist album 'Weird Hill' got plenty of listens since release last week, a snappy 30 min album with nods to Pavement...

New Lankum is my AOTY so far I think. Vital modern Irish music.

Careerist's (fka Hot Cops) debut album is indeed great. Underrated Irish band from da nort.

Never listened to Jape back in the day but will definitely check out the new one.

Not exactly music released in the last 30 days but the new Grimes album (Feb 2020, I think) is fantastic.

I'll hold on until the official release, but glad to hear something is happening.

Bob Stanley/Saint Etienne compilation called 'The Daisy Age' which includes rap and hip hop from the 90s is brilliant.

New David Keenan album out today. Bit of a buzz around it. Liking what I've heard so far. The Healing and Evidence of Living in particular are brilliant songs. Proving once again that Dundalk is home to some of the most talented people on planet earth.

Poppy has a new album out, I Disagree. I know it's hard to know what's real and what's fake with the whole Poppy thing and I can understand how people can hate everything to do with it/her/them? There's a lot I don't like myself - but I've always found one or two songs on previous albums that were genuinely great, so I'm prepared to put up with the stuff that doesn't work in order to get to interesting stuff.

This album is really nu-metally and a lot if can seem real insincere and just someone playing around, but when it works that mix of ultra aggressive guitars, abrasiveness and sugary pop feels damn good - and the songs have numerous little details and layers that make me want to listen again. At her best she sounds like a metallier Grimes - at her worst she sounds dumb and cheesy.

I kinda hate the first half of this song, the "edgy" vocals don't do it for me, but about a minute and a half in it starts to get messy in an interesting way, with little bits of noise between each blast of the music and the guitar solo that follows has this weird doubled up effect going on with some extra bass that I absolutely love.



This song I like from start to finish:

He's actually from Knockbridge. But close enough!

Jesus I think it's awful muck. Could only get through 4 songs before the pain became too much.

Kiwi Jr. are a band. They have an album Football Money. On the first listen they sound like Pavement, meets The Strokes meets bits of The Velvet Underground. Nothing groundbreaking here, but the songs are nice and they have a bit more personality once you get to know them.
