New song sounds absolutely huge. I did like Valtari but this, this is what Sigur Ros are best at. Going to try and get tickets for their Wembley show but I imagine it will sell out super quick.

I've been listening to Anais Mitchell who I'm increasingly becoming convinced is among the best things in folk music right now.

A bit late to the party, but "Hadestown" was my favourite album of the year when it was released.

Wow Sigur Ros album already definitly good since I thought there last album was very slight and like when they go more epic. Also are they going a bit more of a metal/industrial route...interesting.

Depeche Mode - Delta Machine. Much better than the last one. Not sure if better than Playing the Angel - it doesn't quite reach that one's heights but it's more consistent. I like all tracks (17 in the Deluxe edition) except one.

Amusing tune:

After KT Tunstall just announced her new album and QOTSA have just started teasing theirs, it occurs to me that this year I'm going to have 6 (SIX!!) new albums to purchase (in no particular order: QOTSA, KT Tunstall, Goldfrapp, Little Boots, The Pretty Reckless, Lissie) which is pretty damn exciting for me. And yet...

New Tunstall and Goldfrapp this year too? There's a potential embarrassment of riches coming out this year. Flaming Lips, Kurt Vile, The National, British Sea Power, Camera Obscura, Neon Neon and more I've probably forgotten. Oh and Jurassic 5 have reformed and are touring with the original line up.

This was (relatively) big news when it reached No. 2 in the UK charts in February so obviously it's not exactly fresh. However, I heard it for the first time in a club last night, and despite it being just a well polished beat I CAN'T GET THE FUCKING THING OUT OF MY HEAD. The rational part of my brain is nonplussed. The jump around in clubs part of my brain is OD-ing on those synths.

So I'm gonna try and infect some of you lot with it. And shoot the DJ that dropped it.

Coincidentally, I was listening to Regular John when this popped up in my feed. It's at least as good as anything off Era Vulgaris (which, fuck, came out when I was still in high school. It's been too long, Josh.)

Apparently King Midas Sound have spent the intervening years since their last album to develop their live show into something insane, and it's showing through in their latest single:

Saw a bit of this bluesy, funky trio on the first (and alas only day I could be there) of the French Quarter Music festival in New Orleans. Alas their set got cut short by a massive thunderstorm but I'd heard enough to go and buy CDs, this is a type of music I keep meaning to get into more but don't know where to start, so it's nice to just stumble upon it.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VOAkYttmojk

Also at the same festival came across The Honeypots, who do a nice line in more gospel inspired blues, with percussion and cello (often used for bass purposes) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pM1-AVz1q3I

Would have loved to spend another few days there to discover more awesome artists (the jazz and the brass bands were awesome too, but it was the more soulful/funky/bluesy stuff that I most enjoyed) but I had to move onto New York where it was back to some good old house music - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfLcfPdrYVQ

Sorry, this was as much a what I did on my holidays post as a what I'm listening to! And with that in mind I might as well chuck in a link to the opening number of Book of Mormon - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKkLV1zE8M0

This is one of those songs where if I heard it now and I was out and I'd had a bit to drink I'd probably gleefully shout "TUNE" in a completely moronic fashion. I might even do that horrible thing where you put your hands into a "T" shape just to signify that it is indeed a "tune" and then I'll wake up with a horrendous hangover. It is however a sublime example of everything I love about cheesy 90s dance music, it's just so catchy. Disclaimer: I googled skeleton riding and "skeleton riding trumpet" game up in autocorrect, I'd never seen the video but I'm glad that has now been rectified!

It's alright isn't it? The edit cuts short just as it sounds like it's about to go into a nifty synth bit so I reckon the album version will be superior. Looking forward to the album, will be interesting to see how it turns out. Personally I think they are at their best when their properly going for it (the more chilled out stuff like this is needed during an album but for me the first bunch of tracks on Discovery and Alive '07 are their highest peaks, so hopefully there's more of that sort of thing.

The PR for the album has been bloody tiresome though, can't be arsed with trailers and slow drips of information, though I guess it did a great job of making an album release feel like an event, which only really Radiohead have been any good at lately.

The Death Waltz releases were top of my list and I managed to bag the 7" TV themes and the Steve Moore 12", but missed out on Antoni Maiovvi's release. Missed out on the Beta Band, too, which was a bit of a shame. Hopefully they might turn up online next week when stores are allowed to put up stock they have left.

My budget wouldn't really allow for much else, to be honest. Was a gorgeous day for it, though. Went to the Inkwell in York this year which is run by a really nice bloke. Always good fun if you don't fuss too much about getting things. Piccadilly Records said they had people queueing over night which is just... I dunno. I bet none of them hung around in the shop after they got what they wanted. What's the point. A lot of the smaller places will go back to being half empty next weekend.

Taking a rare venture over to planet metal.

I think this is helped by the fact they are singing in Norwegian - it means that I have no clue if they are singing some highly objectionable crap or generic cod fantasy nonsense these bands can sometimes be prone to!

No it means I judge them by their riffs and solos (which are excellent) and the music just having a feeling of being an exuberant rallying cry. Great stuff.

Made sure to listen to Radio 2 earlier as they were playing KT Tunstall's new single. Didn't disappoint. That said, I wouldn't say I'm in love with the chorus, even though I really enjoy the verses. It's a similar problem I had to a lot of the tracks on the previous album too, but hopefully this is just a blip and the whole thing is still really good.

The video though? It's...a little stark. Captures the mood though, I guess.

Not sure what you're talking about... Era Vulgaris doesn't have a "Six Shooter" or "Mosquito Song."

And the new songs are at least as good as "River In the Road" and "Run, Pig, Run," which were the only keepers on Era Vulgaris.

I wouldn't really call Six Shooter or Mosquito Song experimental. They certainly fit in with stuff they'd done previously, whilst I thought Era Vulgaris seemed to deviate a little more from what they'd done previously. The new songs for me really harken back to Rated R/Songs for the Deaf for me, which is exactly what I want.

Also, only those two?? I'm not a big fan of Suture Up Your Future, but the rest of the tracks range from good to great.

Streaming the new Daft Punk album.

Initial impressions are disappointment (though I think I was prepared for that after some of the initial reviews).

There's nothing particularly bad about it, pleasant enough, but not really what I'm after from a Daft Punk album. Comparing the first 5 tracks of this, meandering along like pleasant electronic lift music, to the kick in the arse of the first five tracks of Discovery can only lead to disappointment. It's unexpected to say the least that the best thing on it so far has been the Julian Casablancas collaboration.

Hopefully picks up in the second half and I'll need to give it another couple of listens to properly judge it, I don't know if I'm unconsciously being unfair because of the hype.

Thanks for reminding me why Spiritualized are on my mental "must get around to investigating further" list.

In more "new" news the National's latest Trouble Will Find Me is now streaming on iTunes (seems to be a thing now, Daft Punk and Vampire Weekend both did it). After the disappointment of Daft Punk it's a pleasure to hear the National delivering what they are good at. As the archetypal makers of albums that "grow" I'm not going to judge for certain where it sits with their other albums (gut instinct is on par with High Violet and Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers but slightly below Alligator and Boxer), but funnily enough I'm liking it straight away, perhaps because the band has grown on me so much their songs no longer need time to bed in.

Now that I'm past the initial disappointment of the Daft Punk album not being either Homework or Discovery 2.0 I realise I snapped to an initially harsh judgement on it. Listening again with some decent headphones there's a lot more too a lot of the tracks than I initially realised. That said Touch is still a big splodge of naffness slap bang in the middle of the album and I still don't think (despite their clear efforts to make it so) that it hangs together that well as an album. Some great moments and apart from Touch nothing particularly bad, it'll definitely be a record I enjoy listening to but I doubt it will be one I ever love.

Currently listening to the Vampire Weekend album, which Ya Hey aside, I'm enjoying significantly more than I expected to after being relatively disappointed with their second album. This is the best album they've done yet (though a couple of their best songs are still on the debut).

This year really is an embarrassment of musical riches. Sparrow & The Workshop are a (at the moment) vastly under appreciated Glasgow band fronted by American Jill O'Sullivan. There first two releases were great but on the third album they've gone a bit more menacing (with a few moments of slow burning beauty too). The tracks build wonderfully and Jill's vocals are immense. Hopefully this album will draw in the plaudits, they thoroughly deserve them.

I've been listening to Discipline a lot lately. Proper progressive rock where mellotrons are still mellotrons, bass players do solos and songs are at least ten minutes long. To Shatter All Accord sounds like Van Der Graaf Generator in their prime with a dash of King Crimson and yet it sounds oddly modern. The heart of the album is the 24-minute epic Rogue. I don't know many longtracks that are better than this. Dark, hypnotic and full of those subtle moments that reward repeat listenings. It's not an easy album but definitely a grower. Hell, I had it lying around for over a year after it was on multiple top lists back in 2011 and I couldn't see why.

Haven't got my hands on the new BoC yet but the few tracks I've heard haven't exactly melted my brain. It's the same formula, which isn't bad just... yeah. New OPN is altogether more exciting.

And I've been lax in promoting all things Laurel Halo. Her last EP went back to more dancefloor orientated stuff.

A lot of people seem a bit underwhelmed by the latest Boc album. Haven't been able to give a full listen yet, but I must admit it feels like a few decent tunes surrounded by some largely unmemorable ones. I literally didn't notice the 3 songs in between 'reach for the dead' and 'cold earth' and that's rather troubling in my view, but saying that given the long absence I'll take a mediocre BoC album over nothing.

Maybe it's a grower. cheers for the link BTW Dubbill. :)

I've been listening to the new Camera Obscura, which was my most anticipated album of the year. I like it. Some of the songs have grown on me - especially the title track, which I love - but I still think Cri de Coeur is a load of wank.

Plenty of good tracks, but I don't think I will ever love this one the way I love Underachievers Please Try Harder or parts of the other three. (edit: Actually, I already had a mini-letdown with MMC, so let's say the other two. And I don't want to sound overly negative here: depending on when you ask me, Camera Obscura are somewhere in my top 3 bands ever, so I hold them to a pretty high standard...)

I'm also a bit disappointed that Neko Case was used so sparingly, although literally nothing in the world could have lived up to the excitement I felt at the thought of her and Tracyanne Campbell on the one record. 'Every Weekday' is pretty great, anyway.

Unrelated to the new album, but wonderful:

White Cyclosa and Jacquard Causeway are distinct enough but they may sound a bit like a build up toward something. A certain song may feel like a filler so I guess it's best to be listened in one go (who doesn't anyway?). I don't take much liking from Behind the Green Door to be honest as I'd expect more like Sunlight On the Faded. I guess because it somehow manages to make me feel quite claustrophobic.

New qotsa-album, like clockwork. Seems ok so far, no killer songs yet though.

Preposterous! Without looking back at the list, there's My God Is The Sun, I Sat By The Ocean, Smooth Sailing and the ridiculously fantastic I Appear Missing. There are certainly a few tracks that are a little peculiar, even by QOTSA standards, but there's not one track I dislike on the album. It kicks significant amounts of ass. Also, I want to re-emphasise I Appear Missing. It's one of their best tracks, easy.

Also been listening to Little Boots - Nocturnes. I didn't realise it was released back in January, especially considering that she's had a fair bit of material floating around for a bit. Some of that has made it into the second album and it's a lot more consistent and energetic than the first. Also, a fair bit better. Highlights include Confusion, Shake, Crescendo and Satellite. Nothing that I dislike, really. It's a fun electro-pop serving. A little disappointed it didn't include Headphones (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pJaH2GqT220), but considering what else she's put out online and elsewhere, I'm optimistic that there'll be a lot of content from her soon.

There's also the new KT Tunstall album, Invisible Empire/Crescent Moon. I'm...unsure of this, mostly because compared to the loud, fast albums above that I've been listening in contrast to this, I'm not sure if I've properly been in the correct mood to absorb it properly. It's pleasant and quite in-keeping with some of the more material back on the first album, which after the last one I'll gladly take, but it seems a little off, for some reason that I can't properly explain. Initially it had a problem that I prescribed to Mumford and Sons, that the tracks sort of blur into each other because there's not too much distinctive about each track. Highlights are a little harder to disseminate, but I can definitely call on Waiting On The Heart, Honeydew, Made Of Glass and the non-radio version of Feel It All (it's just far and away better, has so much more mood to it. The radio edit is included at the end though, but I don't see too much to it). This'll definitely require a more direct listening session or two.

So it's 2.75 out of 3, which isn't half bad I say.

In other music that JG likes, I know Lissie performed a new song on the radio earlier (yesterday?) but I'm not sure what it was seeing as I did gone and missed it. All I know is Shameless is pretty good, although the swearing in it seems jarring for a reason I can't quite pin down.

I said no killer songs yet (this was said basically after the first listen through) ;-) I appear missing is indeed awesome, and both it and My god is the sun has gone into heavy rotation on my regular playlist. Might be their best album since Songs for the deaf, although I really like Lullabies to.

Yeah it starts quite well at first but then it turns into a typical shounen battle anime. Manga is a bit better but the twist is overused (everything is titan, including the wall!).

But this one is good, perfectly sums up the atmosphere of the anime:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgepq83Heuc

Better than manga and it heightens the experience if you didn't read it before watching this show. The use of drone ambient is very well done to emphasise the tension and discomfort of the scenes,coupled that with the use of rotoscoping that can show subtle movement of the characters. All in all anime of the season.

I saw Tommy Emmanuel mentioned; Lewis & Clark (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CdnQ2J9Ah4) is a gorgeous track of his from The Mystery. Dude has a touch like Chet Atkins (with whom he collaborated on a fun little album). On a related note, I also like Buckethead's album Electric Tears and its sequel Electric Sea for a similar melancholy or elegiac vibe.

Carrying on with instrumentals, I enjoy Ryuichiro Senoh's harmonica pieces from Cowboy Bebop, especially Digging My Potato (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O0JB4wxtSJk). Blues harp music pokes at m'heart pretty effectively, but that track really gets to me for sentimental reasons... and makes me feel old! If you like it, you might check out the legendary Adam Gussow (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adam_Gussow)'s deconstructive educational videos on Digging My Potato (introduction ends at 2:20 ish; cant figure out timestamping for embeds):


http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=y5hZ5VtWQJg

His other videos and his writing are all good for anyone interested in the instrument or the wider genre. And for giggles, this wikipedia article is amazing:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_Cowboy_Bebop

I've been immersing myself in the Hotline Miami album recently, too. Bathing in it, you might say. Tracks 2-4 by M.O.O.N. are just... really nice. Especially the last one, Crystals. The bass is just right, and there's just enough of a groove for it to melt into background or be actively listenable. For some reason it calls to mind Osborne's Wait a Minute, which is a far funkier thing. Hm.

And finally, I've been listening to a good bit of the Butthole Surfers of late as well. Their crazy on-stage antics were before my time, but included dolphin vivisection videos and shotguns and drum kits coated in claiming liquids which would end up catching bits of the stage on fire. Drugs. As Marc Maron said, the best one can do is, "Just hang on, man!" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfujciMPMHw)

Collaboration between El-P and Killer Mike. It's good stuff. Full of the usual rap bragging but so over the top it moves into so ridiculous it's funny territory. Plus the beats are great.

GRant Hart, 1/3 of Husker Du, released his first solo album in years and it's pretty good. It's a concept album based on Paradise Lost, which sounds awful, but it's actually pretty awesome. Plus, his voice has aged into sounding uncannily like David Bowie. It reminds me a bit of "Hadestown" from a few years back:

That video feels very 90s. I listened to it because I thought "Hey, that could be like Metric!" and then I listened and it wasn't really. You should try Metric, by the way, if you haven't already. They are also Canadian. Just go from here. (http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=metric&oq=metric&gs_l=youtube.3..0l10.288777.289288.0.289440.6.5.0. 1.1.0.102.405.4j1.5.0...0.0...1ac.1.11.youtube.L7k 3B8L0860) But that song, my main problem with it was how the instruments just kind of...well, congealed, I guess. One mass that hardly seemed to deviate.

Anyhow, I've been trying to widen my usually limited collection and braved putting on Spotify. Listened to the whole one album on there of Desert Sessions and thoroughly enjoyed it and gave Beck a try because I'm not entirely sure why, but enjoyed that too. I think I might have to go do some CD ordering for the back catalogue of Desert Sessions in particular though.
