I’m sure pre-Brexit tension is manifesting itself in many ways- for me it’s in an almost insatiable appetite for the ‘Mac’.
TGTBATQ album is possibly my favourite Albarn since Demon Days
My love for the US Girls album grows weekly.
Lotsa Cate Le Bon in the run up before going to a gig of hers. Saw You Were Never Really Here and Greenwood’s score is pretty terrifying! Discovered Omni who are very much for fans of Parquet Courts / Ought ? Preoccupations so obviously very much up my street indeed.
lovely top row of GBV for obvious reasons
also a bit of Haiku Salut as i saw them doing a live soundtrack to Buster Keaton’s The General last week
#1. 50 Song Memoir, 50 plays
#25 The Magic Whip 12 plays
I think it was Bowie’s birthday last week, or something.

Spiritualized - And Nothing Hurt
The Twilight Sad - Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters
Bloody love Outside! Had We Prick You stuck in my head all week long.
Omni are pretty good, my friend has put them on a couple of times which is how i’ve heard of them as they seem a bit under the radar otherwise, though Marc Riley had them on for a session a few months back. one of them was in Deerhunter for a bit i think?
Yeah they definitely seem like a band that Riley would adore. Wasn’t aware of the deerhunter connection? Must have been around Monomania, maybe?
Just one of those great finds that you get into through the related artists pages on Spotify.
yeah guitarist was in them for Monomania apparently.
i found their artwork quite appealing too
