    I cannot stop listening to this in the most literal sense. It's 4:24 AM here and I've been listening to this on repeat for the past two hours. Right in the nostalgia. I love this man.

    Whoa, that's a crazy thing. One of the better multi-screen solo-group singer-men I've heard/seen, with a funny cat to boot.

    I'm currently on an accidental Clint Black Youtube spree. (man, check out that bloom; it's like Oblivion IRL)

    Ridiculous amounts of Misteur Valaire as of late. But why the hell not, it being so catchy and all?

    Also, Modern Life is War made a comeback and new album. And it's brilliant.

    We seem to have eerily similar tastes. Are you actually me? What am I...I mean, what are you wearing right now? Eh? Eh? I might give that a listen at some point. I enjoyed the first, but the second fell a bit flat. I didn't even know they had a third, just that they still existed out there somewhere, a bit like The Divine Comedy, except without a load of good hits before fading away.

    I had Ill Manors stuck in my head for no reason a few days ago. Obviously the message comes off as a little bit on the nose, but I do still think it works and the way the lyrics are song/rapped certainly have conviction.



    I liked a couple of songs off The Defamation of Strickland Banks (it might have a longer title?) but never listened to the whole thing. A friend of mine actually told me it was a concept album, following Banks from his normal life to being committed of rape ('She Said') through to jail life. I might actually give it a thorough listening to at some point. As it goes, I was at a wedding last week and 'She Said' came up. I...couldn't help but point out it wasn't terribly appropriate. Actually, using the to-and-fro motorway journeys, I made an effort to listen through some albums in full. So, I don't really like the slow, acoustic rock songs that tend to creep onto rock albums, but obviously they work in context. Also, some of the songs on Metric's latest album, Synthetica, are a bit weird but again work perfectly fine in the context. Listened through Halestorm which I discovered earlier in the year, QOTSA's Rated R which is fantastic and KT Tunstall's latest offering Invisible Empire/Crescent Moon and I still can't fully make up my mind on it. It's pleasant and there are some great songs, but it just feels lacking a bit for some reason.

    @ JG Man

    It's entirely possible that in my late phd mindframe I've created an internet alter ego. Or you have and I'm a figment of your imagination. In which case you should definitely be having words with your imagination! Or something. Err . . .

    Anyway, I've been listening to The Fall on account of someone on a music forum pointing out you can buy their complete Peel Sessions for a couple of quid on Amazon. Which serves as a good introduction I think, but is probably too much music to have by one band all of a sudden, especially a band renowned for using using repetition within songs. There's definitely some fantastic lyrics amongst it but as somebody uninitiated in their work I'm finding it all a bit too much, so I'll probably dip in and out from time to time.

    To be honest I'm largely aware that I'm going to be distracted by the new Janelle Monae album which is due out (or drops, or whatever the kids are calling it these days) in just over a week. She just really strikes me as by far the most interesting pop star around just now. Wide variety of musical styles, great voice, great dancing, barmy conceptual nonsense, manages to do "empowering" type lyrics with out seeming overly schmaltzy or ridiculously self absorbed (hello Lady Gaga). Really hope this album lives up to my expectations and if it's a good thing hope it's the mainstream breakthrough (the last album seemed to be teetering on the edge of mainstream appeal, but the marketing campaign for this one seems a lot heavier so it's got a chance.

    I think her Glastonbury appearance in 2011 helped a lot too. It was quite the show...

    Not a big fan of Plan B in general, but he totally nailed it with this track. He was always going to be in for a lot of stick (cider adverts blah blah). But the way he pitched the lyrics was spot on, constantly shifting from attacking outsiders to attacking the culture those kids were in, so you could never pin him to a side.

    What sold me on it though was it's completely unapologetic nature. It wasn't spinning a sob story about poverty, or looking for understanding. It was just a statement of this is how he saw things.

    "Feed the fear that's what we've learnt/Fuel the fire let it burn." I think that's the line that hits the nail on the head. Once those kids realised a whole nation thought they were scum, why not just play up to the stereotype? They had nothing to lose.

    Whatever else Plan B does, he was one of the few mainstream artists to have the guts to talk about those riots.

    I didn't pay much attention when The Ocean's Pelagial came out a couple of months ago. It sounded mostly like their previous -centric double album which I didn't like at all. Well, now one of my preferred music review sites made it album of the month (they are usually a bit slow with that) and gave it an incredibly high rating, which they rarely do, and this made me go back.
    I don't know what past me was thinking back then but this really is a small masterpiece. Essentially Mastodon but somehow better. Absolutely album of the year material for me.



    Not the song I would like to link but the one I want is sadly unavailable.
    to wound the autumnal city.

    Yeah DiamondDog, I think I agree with everything you said 100%. Not a big fan of him, hardly rushing out to buy albums, but he's put out some good stuff. I remember when Ill Manors came out and it get a fair amount of attention from the press for being 'hard hitting' and whatever, which certainly fairly attributed, but it certainly helps that it's a good song.

    So I listened to a load of that guy's acapella stuff. Pretty darn great. This one's really heavy on layers, works really well.
