Tesseract - War of Being

Anyone remotely interested in heavy music should give this a go. Djent-y metal-y experimental British band with first album since 2018. Bound to be one of my AOTYs, the vocals are so so good. Definitely worth a listen.

Could do with the nation of language album having a couple bangers on it.

Ruby Haunt - Between Heavens

Prolific hazy melancholic slowcore band release this year鈥檚 offering,. The slowjams seem very slightly more jumped up with each album. (This was actually out a couple of days ago, but seemed a waste to put it in last week鈥檚 thread)

Delmer Darion - Tall Vision-of-the-Voyage

Written in the spirit of scientific romance, by way of Jules Verne鈥檚 Voyages Extraordinaires, it鈥檚 an album of two divergent halves. The first half swans through dizzying tales of human achievement backed up by hypnotic blends of shoegaze, ambient, industrial alt-rock and doom-folk as a carousel of vocalists 鈥 Kiran Leonard, Bingo Fury, Anna B Savage and Slaughter Beach, Dog 鈥 bring their archives to life.

The album鈥檚 second half features the band鈥檚 most ambitious work to date: an 18-minute spoken word epic rooted in Arthurian legend, about the tragic sinking of the HMY Iolaire off the coast of Stornoway in 1919 collaborating with Guatemalan cellist and composer Mabe Fratti and Welsh actor Morfydd Clark.

The big one for me is Ash - Race The Night.

My copy arrived yesterday so I鈥檝e already listened to it and it鈥檚 great. Full of brilliant pop rock that they do best.

Just finished listening to this. I loved their first album so much that I had already pre-ordered this album on vinyl. I think I really liked the first half, but not sure about the spoken second half so far, but will definitely go back and have a proper listen to it all, especially the lyrics. As long as I can cope with Maybe Fratti鈥檚 dark haunting cello again!

First new music in 4 years from these guys, comes in the shape of an EP. I鈥檓 assuming they鈥檙e still slightly punky dream pop.

Will give this a go

Purple is a masterpiece imo but both that and to an even greater extent Gold & Grey really suffered from their decision to work with Dave 鈥淓verything compressed to 11鈥 Fridmann. this album does bring some of the blue sludge back but more than anything else it has G&G鈥檚 ambition but with a lush production & mastering job that stays just the right side of slick. If you鈥檝e not liked anything they鈥檝e done since blue I鈥檓 not sure if this will be where you check back in but would be interested to hear!

Thank you

Days Of August - Postcards
Norwegian band. Just finishing my first listen to this. Basically this is a complete Sufjan banjo-orchestral indie folk album. You want some Sufjan? You got it. Nice and pretty sounding.

Mitski day. Some others too.

I don鈥檛 know how they can say with a straight face it鈥檚 a 鈥渞eturn to our roots鈥 and then record a track like 鈥淐hoir鈥

unless they never actually said that and it鈥檚 just fan hype

After a mere 19 years away, mclusky are back with a double A side, 4 track EP - the funds from which, will allow them to resume the Australian Tour they had to cancel.

It鈥檚 very good. Noisy, humourous, shouty 3 piece rock that you鈥檒l play on loop.
