A general round-up as I have not done one for a while…….mainly due to the fact I’ve been busy plus at the moment I have the time as I am confined to the domicile due to the post flu jab nastiness that always besets me at this time of year……anyway enough of my medical nonsense , this is what has come in through the ether lately…..
- Chelsea Wolfe has released a set of Rudimentary Peni covers – “Prayer for the Unborn” – as part of Southern Records “Latitudes” series……similarly Bardo Pond have released a set of three improvs as part of the same series…..both very entertaining but Chelsea just about wins the race in terms of content and delivery…..
- At the same time Chelsea has released a set of acoustic songs called “Unknown Rooms” which compliments the “Live at Roadburn” album and demonstrates the quieter and more reflective side of her work.
- Factory Acts are releasing their second self-released single “Senseless” (nice bit of alliteration there) on October 25th and rather marvellous it is too. No one else hitherto has quite managed to mingle electronica with dance and a post-punk feel in such a unique and arresting style. Excellent live and worthy of your listening time I would suggest.
- The new Godspeed You Black Emperor album “‘Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend!” is immense – well worth the ten year wait ……
- The new album from Leeds band Me and My Friends is called “Breath A Level Head” is an excellent cornucopia of styles and influences – breathtakingly quirky and highly entertaining.
- We’ve all been getting extremely excited about Flies on You and their album “Nothing to write home about” which is best described as a “modern post punk primer” packed with ideas and variety and loveliness.
- In a similar vein Lost Cassettes from Huddersfield have released, on Bandcamp, a remarkably listenable EP called “What We Doing After?”. It’s free so why no have a gander? Punky and full energy – toe tappingly good say I.
- Lola Dutronic’s album “Everyone’s A Star” is as perfect a slice of electro-pop you will hear all year – and the single Everybody Loves You When You’re Dead has some of the best lyrics i’ve heard all year.
- Streetswimmers are Lee Goulden, John Hamlin, and Jay Hughes and blend various musical styles together to create a marvellous fresh sound with nods towards folk, rock and indie – check them out on Bandcamp.
- Skeleton Suite appear to have emerged from the ashes of Hans Island and have posted a couple of tracks to date on Facebook – very good indie sound.
- Very impressed by Uncle Paul from Blackpool who have a unique and rather compelling sound – their EP is rather good and takes its’ title from a Fall lyric so they obviously know what they are on about.
- Kit B continue to deliver excellent tunes – someone find them a drummer so we can catch them live – the latest two are up to the high standard we expect.
