Its a solid record this whith some really really good moments. Yes, there are a few weak tracks but overall its a fine piece of work and a nice step onwards from 'I Dream Of Black'.
Oh just to point out that and the track you so liked is actually called 'Accidentaly Like a Martyr' and is a cover of a Warren Zevon song.
but the ones i have heard i dont like. Personally i've loved:
those being just three.
who could have been written about who actually do play country or alt country. Unlike the ones mentioned above.
and a fantastic album. Best i've heard so far this year.
not sure if as much as World Apart though but i shall give it time. I agree with the point made about the sound though - its all a bit cluttered.
so am willing to give this one a try as i quite like his country type stuff.
on Drift Records for me. Its crazy but great!
but by no means great. Theres some really good moments but also 3-4 pretty dire songs, and lyrically some of it makes me cringe!
M83 - boring, boring, boring. Doesnt absolutely nothing for me what so ever.
Good to see Bad Seeds highly placed but suprised by no Wave Pictures. But basically this list doesnt even touch on my year musically, but then again i wasnt expecting it to.
For me Half Man Half Biscuit, Euros Childs, Lambchop, Tindersticks.
and i think the M83 album is extremely boring. Doenst float my boat in any means what so ever.
if fecking ace! Love it.
my initial love affair with Glasvegas is well and truly over. Find them kinda boring now. Put on the album for the first time in ages yesterday and its stupidly overblown and overproduced.
but find it really really boring.
- New Teenage Fanclub record thats better than the last one.
- Jesus & Mary Chain playing a show i can actually make it to!
- Kevin Ayers to play live.
crap vocals, horribly polished and ever-so treny boring sound.
a bit shit.
I was hoping that was a joke. Oh dear.
the more im getting conviced it could be my favourite of the year (so far).
And 'Holy Pictures' is an excellent record. Buy it!
tomorrow night for me. Should be ace. Hopefully he'll have copies of his new record on sale too.
wedding reception in the Swedish tent on the Saturday afternoon hence why his wife was wearing a wedding-type dress.
Ace festival though - everyone from Modern Overns through to Dirty Three were quite brilliant.
not as instant has 'Bow Down to the Exit SIgn' but after a few listens it all starts to make sense.
talk about a cliched video - playing in a small room crammed with lots of dancing 'fans' going a bit mental.
pretty much agree with that
i know its been said before but im still very suprised Frightened Rabbit werent even on the list.
but there we go, i voted for Robert Wyatt although he never stood a chance of winning the thing.
the version of 'Stabbed' is pish!! 'Ice Cream Van' seems pretty pointless too. Aside from that the rest of the songs are excellent.
but after listening to demos for the past 6 months or so the album sounds terribly over-produced.
Must did it out and listen again.
Top marks for picking Shane & The Popes. Crock of Gold is a great record.
for some reason this band reeeally annoy me.
its absolutely dire.
didnt have this yesterday. Dammit! Shall have to wait till later in the week.
from the tracks i've heard. Should make for an interesting listen.
could well be with Times New Viking and No Age from what i've heard.
much much more than Bright Eyes stuff.
Much more countrified. Nice.
Obviously everyone would have their own views on who should be on any list but i would have liked to see
But then i guess none of the above are particularly DIS type bands / artists.
where the hell is it?!!!!
but i'll go for Robert Wyatt.
LOVE this band!
TWO Brighton dates too. Ace.
Have keen caning their 'Sophie' album the past week - good stuff.
As outside bets to get nominated.
but c'mon...it hasnt really got any massive standout songs on it and they have done much much better.
Perfect case of over-hype.
Not any really strong tracks in my opinion. Shame as they can be sooo good.
was pretty good in places. Since then though - yep - pretty pretty poor.
