    It’s new…but also old (hence the title). Whatever…very good.

    Wonderful Glorious
    Bet the link doesn’t work so my vote is for Wonderful Glorious by The Eels. Seen them live twice this year and they played the album in its entirety, awesome.

    Clutch seems to be storming it. Will have to wrap my lugholes around it.

    Listened to it about twenty times. If you are a fan, I’d say it’s in their top three albums along with Blast Tyrant and Pure Rock Fury / Robot Hive.

    Hoping to see them at the Academy in Manchester again this year. Very underrated band and deserve more than the cult following they have. I can feel a Clutch appreciation thread coming on 😀

    I hope they don’t get any bigger, though, as the next step up is the Brixton Academy and I hate the Brixton Academy.

    Is the Liddel new one worth a spin then? Kinda went off him after Multiply, which was an awesome album IMO.

    Debut album from Fossil Collective is lovely.

    Songs are great but not sure about the band name though….

    Brixton Acadamy is amazing. Feel like your taking your life in other peoples hand. Have seen Orbital there a few times and the danger just adds to the experience.

    Nah!! Smaller venues are more dangerous. Ever been in a moshpit at the Underworld?

    I’ve seen Alice in Chains and Mastodon in recent years at the Academy, and they were excellent gigs, but the size of the venue took something away. Not a patch on when I saw Mastodon at the Islington Academy on the Crack the Skye tour.

    Really? Have been in many a mosh pit including underworld, Prodigy , sex pitsols, Rage against… anon.
    Brixton acadamy is Raw.

    This thread lacks Flume. End of 2012, but who cares.

    Anyone else get the feeling that the Daft Punk LP is going to be a let-down?

    Right at this precise time according to my most played tracks i’ve been listening to a lot of ” Public Service Broadcasting” , specifically signal (3rd track down) as it has recently became my biking “hooning it” track of the summer.

    I also like Little Green Cars, The John Wayne is a cracker of a song

    Kodaline – The Kodaline EP/Lose Your Mind is very reminiscent of Crispian Millls ala Kula Shaker and worthy of a listen.

    Chvrches are just freakin brill, balls out summer shouty driving music and their live gigs are worth getting hot n’ sweaty for.

    Imagine Dragons are another good band, Demons and Round & Round are especially good tracks

    SOHN – The Wheel, you’ll either get it immediately or you’ll hate it , if you do get it the song will work it’s way under your skin and drive you delirious.

    And finally we have the Album of the year even though it’s not officially released till monday, Karl Hyde’s – Edgeland….i’ve heard a few tracks as a mate has been doing remixes and from what i’ve heard it will be an amazing album, my mate is quite excited and for him to show outward signs of emotion is something special.

    Thanks for whoever was suggesting the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Just listened to that on RDIO – very impressed…will start working my way thru some more of the suggestions here.

    Erm, “moshpit” and those bands are a contradiction in terms :mrgreen:

    Somehow you’ve missed the S/T album of that list, the greatest record they’ve ever released!

    Twohats – My top three changes quite often 🙂 to be honest, I think all their albums are great.

    It’s definitely worth listen. It’s more ‘Princey’/ electronic / 80’s than Mulitply.

    Thanks to this thread a few bits of vinyl arrived in the post today. A couple of this years recommendations and something to fill a glaring gap from the past.

    clutch – Earth Rocker

    Steve Mason – Monkey Minds In the Devil’s Time

    Clutch – Blast Tyrant

    Lots of other stuff worth perusing in the thread too. Hoping that Chvrches can pull off a decent album. Lauren Mayberry’s voice is fantastic. Just love this tune. Perfect elctro pop.

    I also fancy the Public Service Broadcasting record and I’m tempted by the Serafina Steer album after seeing her a year or so back, then there’s all of the other stuff to chuck into google/spotify/soundcloud and see what comes back. Great thread.

    Also, we definitely need a Clutch appreciation thread 🙂

    For me it eas this

    They were probably also best gig of year to date. And cant see them being beaten on that front to be honest 🙂

    The Low Highway by Steve Earle

    Votes for The Knife have me a little puzzled. There’s some great tracks on there, but also some really really bad “experimental” shit that seems to have been made when they first bought synths!

    Saw John Grant on Jools Holland last weekend and decided to check out his album on Spotify – wow!

    I’m really pleasantly surprised by some of the picks on this thread.

    I’ll add:
    Pissed Jeans new one, Integrity’s new one – link – and the new deafhaven rekkid. http://pitchfork.com/advance/120-sunbather/

    Also @Atomizer… please tell me your name is a reference to Big Black!

    If you like a bit of progressive metal check out Tesseract’s new Altered State, it’s amazing!

    Seems silly to start another album of the year thread, so here’s a few more I reckon should go on the long list.


    Carcass – Surgical Steel
    A breath of fresh putrefaction. Just what metal needs at the moment IMO. This is getting played a lot.


    **** Buttons – Slow Focus
    Somehow sounds simultaneously threatening and uplifting. Listened to it recently while driving through the Highlands on the A832 in the middle of the night… the perfect parallel really.


    Jon Hopkins – Immunity
    Picked this up after enjoying his superb collaboration with King Creosote. Didn’t really know what to expect, but have loved every moment of it.

    Looking forward to the new Future of the Left album too, but have a whole month to wait for that.
