I mainly have been listening to techno and music made in Lagos in the 70s, but anything not too fey or quirky is fine x
Some great songs but flat on the whole
Did you hear the new Lee Fields? A few cracking tracks on there
and was pretty blown away. Wrote him off as hipster revivalist bs, was pleasantly surprised. Sounded like the missing link between James Brown and The Dirtbombs.
I bought the KTL record, if you want something threatening, mysterious and droney, get that.
Have you got the Dopesmoker re-issue yet? That's worth having. If only to remind you how balls-out awesome that record is.
Other stuff I got this year you might like:
Black Rain, Now I'm Just A Number. Post-industrial soundtrack for a film that I don't think was ever made. Re-issued on Blackest Ever Black. Dark technoid postpunk which is really good.
Suum Cuique, Ascetic Ideals. Miles from Demdike Stare goes all Mika Vainio.
Think you'd really like LHF's Keepers of the Light too. Huge sprawling double disc set of post dubstep, very jazzy, very cosmic beats.
what's new with the Dopesmoker reissue? Any bonus stuff or remastering (bearing in mind the sound on the reissue from a few years ago is bob on)
it's good if you like prog rock about unicorns or sutin that goes on for 2 hours.
Deep, dark and cinematic Electronica.
that's the good mid range garage rock thing
and there is that 'Personal Space' comp of bedroom recorded soul etc from the 70s/80s that is most excellent.
don't know why the DiS review didn't love it, everyone who hears it can't stop talking about it.
there's the new Royal Headache album. 26 minutes of class.
Easy one of the best hip-hop records of the year so far. It'll blow your balls off. None of this new skool backpacker EL-P/Killer Mike business lol. Just teasing btw, not that I'm that into EL-P or owt mind.
It's been bigged up a couple times on here so you might have seen it, but it's properly oddball and excellent techno-ish
Edward - Teupitz
Nice and lush.
Woebot - Hallo
Kind of delicate without being fey, taken aback by how much I like this.
Agali Ag Amoumine - Takamba
Amazing amazing Mali/Niger guitar led jam, all jagged and blue
Lovely tuneful techno you can get lost in.
particularly 'We Are You In The Future'. He's ruddy ace, is Martyn.

Cakewalk from Norway
here is a medley
