Give me a new album to listen to every work day please. The loopier the better.
I also try to do the same when I’m in the office. Today I listened to the heavy psych of Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats. Some pretty blistering guitar work…
Loopy as in repetitive , or loopy as in ?
I have a feeling I will be disappointed by the answer.
Why not both?
Gonna do some mini reviews.
Wednesday - Charlotte Gainsbourg - Rest
Frenchest album I’ve ever heard. Ring-A-Ring O’ Roses and Deadly Valentine are superb pop.
Fair bit of filler in there mind. 7/10
My dad bought me this for Christmas, I have no desire whatsoever to listen to it, maybe you will.
Thursday - Gil Scott Heron/Jamie xx - We’re New Here
Really like how it feels like a remix album whilst still being cohesive. Feel like the music could’ve been a bit harsher to suit the mood a bit more sometimes. 7/10
Friday - Wilco - Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
Surprised how bland this was. Not a bad album but not sure why its held so highly. Probably the whitest album I’ve ever heard, and I’ve heard a lot of white albums. 5/10
this is the only Wilco record i like.
i was recently suggested Friend and Foe by Menomena - i like it will listen again.
link below if you want to add to your list
Already listened to it. Definitely check out Mines if you enjoy it.
This record sounds a lot like it was recorded in a haze of painkillers, and massively underplays a lot of Wilco’s greatest strengths. The best versions of every song on this record are on the live album, Kicking Television.
“New” as out semi-recently, or “new” as in you haven’t listened to it before?
If the latter, then: Bumblebeez — Prince Umberto and the Sister of Ill
If the former, then Dancehall — The Band
The Residents - Animal Lover
JPEGMAFIA - Veteran
It’s relatively loopy
never listened to Martha?
Sunrise from this album is great. It’s only a minute and a half long or something, but still.
i might also do this
have you listened to fear on the corner by mamuthones?
album improves 100% if you edit out the awful Paul McCartney written track
I’m going to do something like this as well (albums I already like + albums I want to listen to/albums by bands I want to check out). Been working on a little project where it’s all set up based on data from Rateyourmusic, even made a Word document dedicated to it (e.g if I don’t know a band well but want to check them out, I might only include their highest-rated album. If I already like a band but haven’t listened to most of their stuff, might include everything that gets a score of above 3.50, or has at least 1000 votes etc.).
Should keep me entertained for a very long time. It’s been very time consuming setting this up so it better be worth it. Might start a reviewing blog and update it every day, although I really don’t know if I can be arsed with all that and nobody’s gonna read it anyway.
