Music you just can't get enough of…
This summer it was Thriller by !!!
But I’ve bought a fair amount of music since then. Rarely have time to listen to stuff too often before something newer and shinier catches my eye….
But will check out some* of the above.
*yes, you’re right, I shan’t be listening to Hendrix. Or James Clunt.Posted 4 years agoourmaninthenorthSubscriber
Other excellent albums this year: Overgrown by James Blake, Slave Vows by Icarus Line, Sleep of Reason by Rafferie, No Ceremony by No Ceremony, Wakin on a Pretty Daze by Kurt Vile, II by Unknown Mortal Orchestra*.
(There are more, but I can;t think of them right now.)
*last year, actually, I think. Anyway, it’s great.Posted 4 years agosomafunkSubscriber
Taken from last weeks Gilles Peterson show on 6music, the new Fela Kuti collaboration album due out in October, this track is “Sorrow Sorrow, Tears & Blood”, a classic Fela Kuti track that is done immense justice here by Kyp Malone & Tunde Adebimp (tv on the radio), The excellent Kronos Quartet ensemble and Stuart Bogie of Antibalas (and sometimes of tv on the radio).
It’s one of those songs with a rhythmic undercurrent and rolling gait of it’s own that will have you reaching for the volume dial, definitely an earworm and i can’t wait for the album, absolutely love Fela Kuti’s work and to have new interpretations of his work due out soon is like xmas come early for me 😀Posted 4 years agospasmic gherkinMember
Austra. Lots of Austra,
I bought their debut album (feel it break) just before i went on a hostelly holiday the last month, and despite taking two mp3 players with me, mostly just played that album. I’ve largely kept on with it since going back to work too,(and i generally favour high-tempo, very angry music for work – ups my productivity) it just won’t die! Best album i’ve bought this year by a very long chalk.
the other band to fill the holiday were Castrovalva. If they could make more than four good songs per album, then i’d predict them a bright future:Posted 4 years ago
At the Moment – M83, their own album and also the Oblivion Soundtrack, which is just awesome. Arctic Monkeys and London Grammar both good albums as well.
I have ‘Mandinka’ by Sinead O Connor on repeat at the moment..was having an 80s flashback after Channel 4s 80s night and educating my teenage son in the music of my yoof.Posted 4 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
Thirteen Senses. I can listen to them again & again.
Glasvegas also, but your likely to want to take your own life after a while. 🙂
I discovered an album called “Faded Seaside Glamour” by The Delays a while ago. I’ve played that to bloomin death just lately. It was release in something like 2005, but I honestly can’t recall ever hearing of them before. 😕Posted 4 years ago
