Yeah it’s one that I don’t think will ever get old. Each song has its own unique character and charm; great as isolated tracks and together as a whole. Quite rare for me to feel that way about an album these days.
If you ignore the indie darlings/bellends Protomartyr win I’ll take that
Have never really bothered listening to Ariel Pink before but Ravenscroft has been playing Time To Live on 6music a lot lately and it’s barely left my head in days. Must give the album a go
Strong month. Any of the top five would have won last month easily.
Yeah definitely! Time To Live is totally infectious but just as a heads up it’s not particularly representative of the rest of the albums sound (Another Weekend & Feels Like Heaven are probably closer to the mark) but like @mouth_breather’s says , the album is quite diverse across it’s fourteen tracks and in relation to the rest of his catalogue, it’s probably his most focussed / fine tuned record yet.
Ah man, not a great list
Changed my mind. Just listened to the Iglooghost album and fairly certain it’ll go down as a classic in the UK Wonk/Glitch Hop scene. Fucking ridiculous the amount of ideas going on and energy on show in this album. Consider this my new number 1
don’t know if I’ve ever heard any Wonk/Glitch Hop before but this is great
So you didn’t put that National album at number two?
Never said I wasn’t an indie bellend, pal
Make it right, listen to Neo Wax Bloom, be cool, I love you xoxox
Feel like Ibeyi have come close to a great album with their last two attempts, but haven’t quite reached their potential yet.
Yep, I tend to agree. Such potential, but I think they need to trust themselves to experiment a little more. At times they perhaps risk veering a little too close to MOR blandness … a bit like Sampha. So, I kind of like them, but feel there is just something missing.
Liked for the Kurt Angle reference (not LCD)!
Well late to the party but for what it’s worth:
- Death from Above
- Enter Shikari
- Wolf Alice
- Chelsea Wolfe
- The Bronx
- Arcane Roots
- The Killers
Superb month. Definitely check out Inheaven if you’re a fan of 90’s indie rock.
I will, tyvm.
Just listening to this for the now for the first time! Holy heck this is ace…
