Best albums of 2013 so far.
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.Posted 4 years agosomafunkSubscriber
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.
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.
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.Posted 4 years agodebaserSubscriber
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 🙂Posted 4 years agomikezer0MemberdebaserSubscriber
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.Posted 4 years ago
