01 – Dirgy post-punk b-movie horrorcore dystopia on Sacred Bones. I'm have a biased predisposition to love anything off that label, but the reason is it just keeps turning out to be good. This week’s highest entry makes my top ten of the month too.
02 – Constant in-car rotation for the greatest British rock band alive. Even my 3 year old gets it. Asks for all the songs they say “Hey”, shouts along with “Seven severed heads”.
03 – Electro fetishised soul. Just got the second ep, so I’ve been playing both a bit.
04a – Can’t stop playing Henge Beat. Half the songs sound like different bands (which reminds me, I need to get the new Balaclavas album)
04b – Got a little bit of filler (or maybe I’m just not a fan of the slower stuff) , but the wall-of-noise shoegaze stuff is almost overwhelming. Not quite A Place to Bury Strangers, but it’s a slightly sleeker thing.
06 – Had a luxurious velveteen black metal moment
07 – TxN is fantastic! Swedish girl/girl spacious, surreal industrial noise minimalism littered with hooks and beats.
08a – More heavy in-car rotation playing the ...Inside A Horse album. I need to put their earlier eps on my ipod. Looking forward to this band blowing up as big as an angular post-rock hardcore band can.
08b – Different project from Gkfoes Vjgoaf’s Sean Conrad that plugs into the same rural acoustic nu-age psychedelic hypnotics. New album on Inner Islands is four tracks of deep and heavy lucid jam.
10a – Got One Thousand Pictures too late for it to make my end of year list, which I think it would have.
10b – The Magic Place.
10c – Still marvelling at this summery acid psych even while it snows outside.
