Big week folks, especially in the ambient realm. Got my eyes on:
Alva Noto and Ryuichi Sakamoto- TWO
Lee Gamble- Exhaust
Benoit Pioulard - Sylva
Juliana Hatfield- Juliana Hatfield Sings the Police
Bonnie Prince Billy- I Made a Place
DJ Shadow- Our Pathetic Age
Tindersticks- No Treasure But Hope
Very excited, how about ya’ll?
All of those plus I’m gonna check out Detritus by Marcus Hamblett
Arthur Russell - Iowa Dream
Will also check out tindersticks and hammock
Is this a compilation album or unreleased tracks?
This looks like the big one
Saw that you had posted in the thread and I started looking forward to something weird and wonderful.
This is definitely one of those things.
don’t really know why that amused me tbh.
A buddy of mine is playing saxophone on this - he said it was an absolute riot to record.
new single from Hoops
FFO Real Estate, Beach Fossils, Jay Som
Late but since it seems a quiet week I’m really enjoying the Friendship album from last week, everyone should get on that
Tindersticks, DJ Shadow and Cloth I think.
Seem to be quite a few Peel Session releases from Warp around today too. Enjoyed the Aphex and Plaid tracks.
seem to be two threads but posted this in the other one…
Bonnie “Prince” Billy - I Made A Place: A very nice return, full of folky ballads and country bangers
Deliluh - Beneath The Floors : an excellent record of gloomy post-punk, FFO Ought and Protomartyr
Concrete Tapes have pulled together this compilation of electronica and ambient to raise money for the Labour election fund. Includes a remix I did of an upcoming @colossalhorse track, plus a gem from @BodyInTheThames
Good music, good cause.
Looks like the tapes are almost sold out too
Actually, the first 50 have sold out already
He’s doing a 2nd press of 50 more
Enjoying the DJ Shadow so far but it’s an hour half long so I will literally never listen to the end of it
Ah this is so good! Works really well as a live release (vs yer standard live rock album) - lots of things I’m super familiar with but with new twists and turns.
