Summer is Over!!
How was it for you?
Mine was good, travelling around various spots in Europe.
Listening to the mighty iPod.
The usual summer releases of interesting new artists, albums and music, was fewer I feel than normal.
It was always one of the slots to debut your hot new artists.
Sure there were a few new artist releases but way less.
Fat Freddy were welcome, although a patchy album, Russia and Blackbird are top grooves.
Lloyd Cole returns with the finest album he has made in 20 years!!!!!!!
Get it buy it, now.
Loving the Boards of Canada.
very beautiful very gentle very very good.
Welcome return of the Artic Monkeys too.
This band have matured and developed in a beautiful way.
Very reminicent of classic bands from the 70’s and 80’s, where each album moves on from the last.
Sure those who fell in love with the first album and wanted more of the same will be disappointed.
But those who heard the band mature and strenghten their sound while maintaining their brilliant sharp witty lyrics will be thrilled with the band the album and no doubt the tour.
Cant wait to see them live again.
If ever there was a band that I would have loved to have found, signed and recorded this is it.
Goldfrapp have also returned with a lovely dreamy album.
Will is a genius and Alison is an angel, together they make one of Britains finest.
Jah Wobble the east ends star boy meest marconi union manchester’s finest.
They have made a lovely album, definately worth the few bob its costs.
Just had to buy the Strypes album, yea yeah.
Its very ’60’s but energy fun fun.
Gonna burn some time on this one.
The Bob Dylan box set of Another Self Portrait is giving me much pleasure.
I hated the self portrait album when it came out.
It was interesting to read what happened, how it happened and now get to listen to everything.
The thing with his Bobness is.. he dont always get it right.
but my god how many times does he get it right??
too many and if he cant see how good he is at the time, we are allowed to hear his rejected genius and enjoy.
Just been looking at the upcoming releases.
It seems that the majors are throwing everything out in the next three months, actually the next two months.
Lots to listen to look fwd to…
