The first proper song on that album is a belter! Their last album - Voire Dire, is one of their best as well. Certainly made up for The Hierophant. And I think they’re recording their new one with Eric Stenman again, so they’ve got the credentials this time around!

Look stop it. Stop giving me hope.

It’s hard to hope after 20 years.

  1. FUCKING. YEARS.

Holy Fuck
Fucked Up

Anyone still listening to Black Rebel Motorcycle Club? Anyone, anyone? Bueller, Bueller?

Anyway, it’s released on 12 January…


#46

Ooh, forgot about Tune-Yards. Should be a good’un.


#47

Portishead, Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, Tame Impala, Jon Hopkins

Wouldn’t be surprised if they broke up soon tbh.

Death Magic took way too long, they sounded like they weren’t really interested in making music anymore and with Jupiter gone, wouldn’t be surprised if they pack it in altogether.

Was massively underwhelmed with Disco 3 too.

Pinegrove & These New Puritans are the big two I’m looking forward to.
