March 3rd releases


#1

I’ve appreciated these threads recently.

Blanck Mass is finally here - giving it my first listen now.

I was psyched for Lusine’s latest having gotten a bit obsessed with him in the past few months, but it felt a bit underwhelming on the first couple of plays.

Whatchu listening to?


#2

Having never heard them before I’m checking out the new Why? record and 3 tracks in it’s really good. Also going to be listening to new Grandaddy and Nadia Reid who I have been reading good things about.

I’m not too familiar with Blank Mass but will definitely check it out too, am I right in thinking he makes ambient/electronic stuff?


#3

His first album was by-the-numbers ambient drone, but he’s since shifted more towards what could loosely be termed techno.


#4

Really loving the new Blanck Mass record, listened to it a lot since it’s been streaming on npr.


#5

I picked up a copy of the New Grandaddy on my way to work this morning, an excellent return from those guys :smiley:


#6

New Kangding Ray as well :heart_eyes: What a day to be alive!

Blanck Mass sounds ace on first listen - Silent Treatment is the obvious highlight for my money.


#7

I was somehow oblivious to there being a new Nadia Reid album! Cheers for the heads-up! Nice surprise that.


#8

I’ve only read about her, not actually heard anything as yet, what’s she like?


#9

Grandaddy and Sleafords


#10

Listening to Nadia Reid. It is nice.


#11

Downloaded (legally) both Grandaddy and Nadia Reid slightly after midnight for the journey to work this morning. Both excellent albums. I lost touch with Grandaddy after their second album but have a ticket for their Rough Trade East gig next month and so I thought I’d check it out. A good morning for listening to new stuff on the way to work. Work on the other hand is totally shit.


#12

Streamed Grandaddy this morning - very good, but never a 10/10.

Will give it more time over the weekend.
A Lost Machine is stunning.


#13

new Temples


#14

Blanck Mass and Grandaddy are both great stuff.


#15

Sort of techno. Sort of noise. Sort of OPNish in places.


#16

Listened to and enjoyed Grandaddy. Got Blanck Mass and Why? lined up. But Crack Magazine have the new Idles album for stream so that’s jumped the queue.

Great Day.


#17

Don’t want to sound dismissive, but she’s just a girl with a guitar really. Particularly well crafted songs though.


#18

I’ve skip-listened to everything released today. 61 different records, i think. All shite. Absolutely nothing took my fancy at all. Grandaddy, Alexis Taylor and William Ryan Fritch the least shit of the lot, but wouldn’t relisten.
