New Releases 17/11/2017


#21

Ah man his debut is so wonderfully melancholy. I’m on record here as generally not being a fan of the whole modern classical movement in the ambient world, but I love the way he layers harmonies on top of his piano noodlings.


#22

I’m a big fan of stuff in that hinterland between modern classical and ambient myself - that was my route into ambient really - but a lot of it is a much of a muchness tbf. You can tell when something is a cut above the rest really quickly I think (though I find it hard to describe the difference) and Slow Meadow is definitely on another level.


#23

Ok, nothing to do with this week’s releases, but I’d strongly recommend Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto.


#24

Oh, nice - I’ve listened to a bunch of Sakamoto’s stuff but not this one. Thanks man! I’ll give it a whirl after Slow Meadow is over. It’s going to be a very sad morning. In a good way.


#25

His collabs with Alva Noto are amazing, Insen in particular. Saw them live a few years back and it was mesmerizing. Generally Alva Noto is well worth exploring - Xerrox 2 is one of my all time ambient jams, and his more rhythmic work is very interesting too.


#26

Dare I check this out?


#27

We’ve stuck our final album out, Outlive Your Body. Come give it a spin :slight_smile:


#28

The name is familiar but I’m not sure I’ve ever listened to any of his stuff. Thanks for the tip - down another rabbit hole I go.


#29

yES.


#30

at first i thought it was dreadful, but it turns out it’s only not that good really.

edit: by which i mean it’s great, obviously!


#31

Like a lot of ONSIND records, it’ll take a while for the lyrics to really click in but a breezy, short listen.


#32

Really hoping this new OCS album is the follow up to Moseley Shoals we’ve all been waiting for.


#33

I’ll not hear a bad word said against Marchin’ Already


#34

That Joy Orbison Selectors 004 is decent - eclectic dance stuff, he has an ear for a good tune no doubt.


#35

Didn’t know there was a new Electric Wizard til it showed up in Spotify. It’s pretty much the definition of a band treading water but when you’ve been singing about covens and druids for 8 albums I suppose you paint yourself into a bit of a corner. The whole time it was playing, I was thinking yer man Jus must be in his 40s by now, is he not a bit bored of this yet?

There’s a Peter Broderick album out too, a sort of compilation of songs and music he’s been commissioned for… very pleasant but not sure I’ll be going back to it all that often


#36

I imagine with doom having a resurgence in popularity - and it’s fans being such big vinyl lovers - Jus is gonna ride that wave for as long as possible. And why not?

Cba with it myself. I’ll just bung Dopethrone on instead.


#37

I dared not


#38

Aidan Moffat album of Where You’re Meant To Be outtakes, name yer price


#39
