Thank you for this. Has anyone got a Spotify list for Jason Molina? I feel like immersing myself ... I always loved 'Come Back To Your Man'. Fragile
Enjoy your missives. Keep up the good work!
But i would have plumped for 'GNG BNG'
FaltyDL - 'Hip Love' or 'Hard'
Gil Scott-Heron & Jamie XX - 'NY Is Killing Me'
Radiohead - 'Bloom' (Blawan Remix)
Machinedrum - 'Come1'
Caged Animals - 'Teflon Heart'
Auntie Flo - 'Highlife'
Mono/Poly - 'Needs Deodorant'
TNGHT - 'Higher Ground'
Clouds Are Mountains - 'Flux'
MODERAT - 'Rusty Nails'
Fever Ray - 'Concrete Walls'
Clams Casino - 'Illest Alive'
The Weeknd - 'Glass Table Girls'
Thought Sean's comment more than a little 'proprietary'... a WTF? moment.
The Mint Chicks have gone and done good things... see last year's Unknown Mortal Orchestra for counterpoint.
It's on Spotify, btw. Sounds like Bjork doing 'The Eraser'?
Keep it up
Good work Team DiS. Quite a spread of flavours there - interesting to see a couple of 'neo-classical' albums in there. Go you
Loved 'Fiya' and 'Sunlight' from Bird-Brains but this is some Cirque du Soleil Tune-Yards. Slapped me in the face on my first listen. Fav so far this year
Agreed. 'Double humbert'is double bloody good
Still no buggers hard enough to come to Christchurch and play a post-quake gig. Thought Wild Beasts might have enough mongel in 'em
by a long nose from Nicolas Jaar and Deaf Center's 'Owl Splinters'...Peaking Lights are coming up from the rear
Permission to use?
Lovin it. Well done, sir
Thought it was The Corrs gone electronic for a mo....Imagine touring with the Deheza twins.....sorry, it's all about the music
This is ace. Good review, too. She's a little bit of Prince, Bowie, Jacko and, of course, Beyonce.
Like the 'scuba diving in the open ocean'. Touch of class, Rory. Go you
Please don't ruin an otherwise perfectly fine review with such ballbagisms....driveability blah blah. That's why I read DiS
Jeesh, who listens to music for 'fun'?
I'm a latecomer to Linkous, But I am absolutely loving 'Good Morning Spider'. Very sad. Where should I go next, folks? The debut?
Loses that whole alliteration thing, tho...Run, Hare, Run.
Thought I'd do the patriotic thing and join the flock (enough...) in berating the Wolfmother jibe. Wholly recommend catching up with PF's first two albums. While we're at it....check out SJD (available at RT), Lawrence Arabia, James Duncan, The Naked and Famous.....good things happen in Paradise.
Nice work. I'm an English teacher (groan), (another 'killer'/'over-analyser) and if I may, I'll use this as a conversation starter for a Y12 class.
Does it strike anyone as odd that Dis has published this but has yet to review it? Sort it...
Thought I'd buy. Good but not great, eh? Some cool tracks but best of year???? Eye of the beholder, of course but....did DiS have to look around this hard to find a 'best' album that was unique to them?
Still too much listening to be done to set a list in concrete but here's a list anyway..
Benga (why so few mentions????)
Late of the Pier
I'm hearing a lot of the above. But I'm willing to take the prize. Looking forward to DiS's list and putting its moneyshot where its mouth is...
