DiS Users' October 2022 Album Of The Month - THE RESULTS

Not contributed to one of these in months and months but wanted to give some support to Pixies for such a good album.

  1. Pixies - Doggerel
  2. The Comet is Coming - Hyper‐Dimensional Expansion Beam
  3. Makaya McCraven - In These Times
  4. PVA - Blush
  5. Pale Blue Eyes - Souvenirs (pretty sure that was way before October!)

Pixies was a September album

Didn’t really recognize AOL at all. I read that the singer had to relearn how to sing, just sounds like a totally different band. Suppose I was just hoping of more of the same scuzzy slacker rock from my youth!

if you heard any of the stuff he did solo or as Crooked Fingers then he’s got this vocal style on that too

i think there’s plenty to like in the new AOL still but yeah much cleaner and slower than their old vibe. But there were hints at that style even from All the Nation’s Airport onwards

I’m sure I have ATNA’s somewhere but can only really remember the first 2 records. I hadn’t realised Eric had done other stuff until recently. Icky Metal was one of those albums that I just loved so much when it came out

I love Icky Mettle so much, went to Primavera basically just to catch them when they first reunited - can see me on the video yelling along to Web in Front. Favourite track changes day to day

but I actually think ATNA might be their best overall given how many styles it covers - goes quieter and softer but also heavier than Icky. Go check it!

I see. But being released on 30th September didn’t give anyone much time to listen.

Looks like only PVA is eligible from me then as just checked the others.

Ach, forget it.

Not ready to vote yet, just here to plug Meat Wave.

A great month for quality if not quantity. The Sabra album is a long way ahead of the other four and is currently one of my favourites of the year.

People can vote for those and I’ll probably count them but I’d prefer it if they didn’t.

Just skews the results slightly.

What a month,

  1. Angeline Morrison - Sorrow Songs: Folk Songs of the Black British Experience

  2. Arctic Monkeys - The Car

  3. Gilla Band - Most Normal

  4. Martha - Please Don’t Take Me Back

  5. Loraine James - Building Something Beautiful for Me

I really recommend anyone to give the Angeline Morrison album a listen - it’s a beautiful and important record.

Still not got round to the AA Williams or Dry Cleaning records and expect to love both of them too.

Shite month for albums, imho. Not a single looker amongst 'em.

Interested to hear what you think of the new A.A. Williams, definitely a much heavier sounding album than FB but I think it’s incredible.

I’ve liked everything she’s done so far so I’m definitely up for it.
