Generally like most things that Double Double Whammy put out, and have liked the singles so far. Looking forward to the LP.

Decided to start engaging with new music again and made a list of albums I’m looking forward to: https://rateyourmusic.com/list/RonanS/upcoming-2018/

A few albums, mentioned above…plus a number of things I didn’t realise were scheduled (Rhye, Anna von Hausswolff, Nils Frahm, Typhoon) and then a few based on blinding singles (Hookworms, Lucy Dacus, Olden Yolk, Moaning)

Always thought Hookworms were slightly overrated before now, too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xufAOZiYF6c

@Shiels…seen Hovvdy pop up whilst researching…what kind of sound do they have?


#125

Hi! Good question. Thanks.

The music of Hovvdy seems to have an indirect but definite continuity with the music Lou Barlow recorded in the 1990s. Specifically, the link is more one to Sebadoh than to Folk Implosion or to Lou’s solo efforts. There are also shades of Archers of Loaf which I think I sometimes hear in vocal lines. That’s it’s basic pedigree, I think, but it’s also a kind of evolved, modern interpretation of lo-fi/noise rock, and that will probably seem more apparent to you some songs than on others. Hovvdy: Taster (2016) is probably a good place to start. I think the first half of that record is absolutely great.

Probably new oh sees stuff so that will make me happy!

The Men lost their way a bit with Tomorrow’s Hits, but the last album felt like a step back in the right direction, and they have a new one out in March:


#129

Great call about Anna Von Hausswolff, I saw her performing live in London as a support act of Carmen Consoli, that was roughly 2 years ago and I’ve been hooked since!

Preoccupations teasing new music:


#131

Cavern of Anti-Matter & The Breeders have albums out this year.


#132

Oo, well up for this.


#133

Hoping Goat Girl have plans to release their debut. Everything I’ve heard up to this point has been great


#134

Nils Frahm
Augie March
Breeders
Voidz
Chromatics
not much else for me at the moment…

Price a bit steep, think I’ll wait for Spotify! That track is pretty fun though.


#140

New Amen Dunes on the way by the looks of it. I really liked Love when it came out. I remember going seeing Mac DeMarco at The Ritz because Amen Dunes was supporting.


#141

there’s a new Cadence Weapon album out on Friday… Jacques Greene produced the first single… sounds like it could be good


#142

This is almost here - looking forward to it :+1:
