Is that that the title of her album or just a statement about her career?
Little Simz, grey area is a brilliant album.
Debut as Du Blonde or debut as Beth "Jeans" Houghton? Think I prefer the latter.
One of favourite tunes of all time
Surprised the feedback foals is getting in here, after a few listens honestly think it's their best since TLF. It's probably not helped by the fact the 1st 2 songs are probably the weakest on the album mind.
I don’t think it’s very cohesive as a record personally. I wonder if the second release will give it a bit more context but I just think it’s a bit boring.
Off to see Self Esteem tonight and then Roy Harper on Tuesday.
It’s about her recent health problems If you must know.
The Townes Van Zandt record is very good. It’s a shame he was dead before he really started getting the recognition he deserved!
Agreed with everyone about Indoor Pets. Enjoyable enough but pretty forgettable in the long term. The Kokoroko EP is very good (kind of Afro-jazz). The EB the Younger album is soemwhat Midlakey, unsurprisingly, nice enough. Listening to the Royal Trux album, which I forgot about when it came out at the moment. Pretty good... a bit less raw than a lot of their earlier stuff.
Heard a couple songs of the new Low Life album, "Downer Edn" and I really like them. This one for those of you who enjoy a bit of punk. And I mean hardcore, not bubble gum, punk.
EDIT: Full album not released yet. I believe it's coming out in April.
Contniuing with what I've been lstening to today:
Stella Donnelly - nice
Jim Jones - angry
Dave - intriguing
Helado Negro - mellow
The latter reminds me of Devendra Banhardt.
Self Esteem very fun live. I highly recommend to anyone who gets a chance.
Drahla album out 3rd May. Useless Coordinates (Pre-order)
NICE! Had never heard of them before, but that's really good.
Have you listened to Madonnatron?
Only their song "Sucker Punch" as it was on my "new music" playlist on iTunes last Friday. I really like the song, but I haven't had a chance to check out their previous album yet.
Decided to listen to it after your post so I am listening to it now. Really enjoying it. The song "Be My Bitch" is playing right now and so far my favorite song on the album.
That’s the song I’m on now
Have you heard of the group "Lilly"? They are a local (SoCal) band. All super young (still in their teens) but their debut EP (just came out) has really good energy. There's probably only one song on the EP that's not really my cup of tea "Sepulveda Basin" but the rest of the EP is rather good. Worth a listen, I think.
