Spotify have the new remaster up?
The artwork would say yes.

Pastiche Stereolab anyone?! Found it all rather enjoyable myself...

Not bad. Dave Cambridge/Cardinal Fuzz mentioned them a while back. I wouldn't be into all of it but there are moments!

Scanning through some of the tracks, i can hear similarities to the early Kranky artists and also Fuxa, and some more obvious nods to MBV. Enough for me to investigate further. Cheers Mark!

When the inspiration is so obvious I can take it. These guys are obviously big Stereolab fans so it's cool. It's when bands claim 'we sound nothing like so-and-so...' (poking the Spacemen/Loop hornets nest here inevitably!)

Jane Weaver - Flock, her 11th album apparently!! And this supposed to be `the pop one`, if Stereolab and Broadcast pass for pop in your house then I suppose so, just sounds really good to me, psychedelic and folky

Not a huge fan of Paul Weller unless its in relation to the Jam but heard this Jane Weaver remix recently and its really nice.
if your looking for escape during lockdown it also compliments the excellent documentary The Farthest -
(dont watch it on youtube..its in bits)

Vapour Theories - Celestial Scuzz: Album title sums it up really! This is Bardo Pond's Gibbons brothers in a semi-contemplative mood. I'm sure the last track takes it's tune/riff from EAR's Mesmerised album. Or maybe it's Spectrum. I would best describe this as an aggressive Windy & Carl 8)

Arab Strap - As Days Get Dark, been waiting a while for this and it doesn't disappoint. Lyrically superb from Moffat, I have always loved his half spoken delivery of songs and often uncomfortable subject matter and Middletons music just seems to fit perfectly with them, whatever he's playing :!:

Clinic - S/T: Comp of early singles that still sounds wonderful 22( :shock: ) years later. Not a duff track on there.
Psychic Lemon - Studio Jams Vol.3: Self explanatory. All their Jams comps are pwyw: https://psychiclemon.bandcamp.com/album ... s-volume-3
Hey Colossus - Hates You and You and..: Debut album. Sludgy riffs. Not essential to be honest.
Plankton Wat - Future Times: I was really looking forward to this as i think there is a Magic Lantern or Eternal Tapestry connection. Drifting guitar and synth for the most part but not quite hitting the spot for me. In fairness i'm not sure i was in the mood for it. https://planktonwat.bandcamp.com/album/future-times
Thurston Moore - Lunatic Street, Thank You: Disc 2 of this compilation. Some fine songs in there. In latter years he seems to have accepted his material is going to sound like Sonic Youth so why change it?

Yeah I got the Plankton Watt album Joycey, its Dewey who used to be in Eternal tapestry, its ok, he has better albums in his back catalogue, it just sort of meandered along
Listening to a lot of stuff on the Castles in Space and the Woodford Halse label, the latter is mainly cassesttes, (have a new Teac twin cassette ordered but there is long wait, supply cant meet demand) but they download via bandcamp so plenty of options to listen.. I have been looking at streamers as well...... A whole can of worms opened up. Anyway Woodford halse is electronica, weird folk, acoustic drone stuff and rather marvekllous. Castles in Space is purely Electronica but covers all bases, techno, ambient, berlin school, soundtracks, hauntology. Largely its been really good getting stick into the material Cocolan and Field Lines Cartographer are 2 of the artists that have hit the spot, the former sounding a bit Boards Of canada.

Neil Young archives 2 deluxe box set landed yesterday, listened to most as i got the flac files when pre ordered. Truly wonderful stuff and its hard to imagine just how many songs he must have written during that 72-76 period.

Olivia Tremor Control, Black Foliage, finally got it on 2LP to replace a scratched cd, wonderful weird Beatles esque trippy guitar pop pysch

Guided By Voices have very much arrived at my door, which is not a good thing financially but currently playing Propellor, Be Thousand and Vampire on Titus

PJ Harvey- reissue campaign has been great with some fine pressings, especially interesting are the demos which appear as stand alone albums

Cheval Sombre- Time waits For no one. More of the same from a very consistent artist, most enjoyable

I've been listening to the new Still Corners album - The last Exit. They are not my fav band, but it's ideal music for when i'm coding. Nice and mellow in the background - maybe it's contributed to a few breakthroughs.

Because Briita Philips provides vocals for one of the tracks, I've just bought the last Jonathan Bree album - "After the Curtains Close", which was released last year. I gues you'd describe the music as "baroque pop"? Not sure - he's spooky a looking guy with the Auton-esque costume. I kinda like the vibe.

I’ve said it before - but Mogwai have released more recordings than I can keep up with. Will definitely check this out.

Currently listening to a Royal Trux compilation called ‘Quantum Entanglement’

Ezra Feinberg - Pentimeno and Others, Recumbent Speech. Lovely solo material from ex Citay bloke
Phish - Riveira Maya, Mexico. All 3 nights from their stint in February 2020
Goose - Various recent live shows
Papir - Jams. Newly released recordings of er... Papir jams!
Steve Hillage - Green, Motivation Radio. Quality hippy guitar noodling
Marshall Tucker Band - s/t. Southern countryish rock
Jim Dickinson - Dixie Fried. Probably my most played album of the last month

The Coral - Coral Island: heard some tracks on the RadMac show, and enjoyed them. It's the first album I've bought by The Coral since Magic and Medicine. Might have to check more out.
Eels - Earth to Dora: just got round to getting a copy of this. Thought his last few albums have been lacklustre, but really enjoying this one.
Rudimentary Peni - Great War: if you like RP then you'll like this.

Also, nearly forgot - and I guess this is a gulity pleasure - I've been listening to the "Come to the sunshine" Harpers Bizzare boxset. All 4 of their albums. Just love the easy listening vibe, and I think their third album "“The Secret Life of Harpers Bizarre” is especially fab!

Just waiting for the new Magic Castles album to arrive!

Where did you get your copy from Runci? Can't seem to find a copy under £33 here in the UK.

FWIW Jon, I bought mine from Stickman Records as that is the shop run by the band's drummer. I think it was about the same money including shipping so I rather it went to the band rather than a middleman.

I bought a download from Bandcamp before I saw there was a physical product, which was an error, but I'll just have to cope with that!

My playlist recently featured every version of Transparent Radiation I could find for the Podcast!

Also a lot of Slipstream going down here which is a nice rediscovery.

I started looking at older things I haven't played for ages and found myself listening to Ozric Tentacles 'Erpland' which has some great moments but is perhaps a tad jazzy.

I found a CD spzretent sent me of very obscure Mercury Rev things that sound very unlike Mercury Rev, with odd titles like 'Left Handed Raygun of Paul Sharits'. It features a great cover of The Band's 'Tears of Rage'.

I also got stuck back into Global Village Trucking Company's remastered recordings which sound really polished, and the unreleased tunes are pretty interesting too. But that's a family thing...

:D Always good to return to the Ozrics now and again. Erpland is definitely one of their best.

Iceage - Seek Shelter
Danish band, never heard of ‘m before, but their new album was produced by Sonic. Appearantly they were a punk band but transformed into something more polished, for lack of a better word. I quite like this, bit of primal scream, spiritualized and britpop in there, even a gospel choir! Good songs, the singer needs a bit of getting used to, but check ‘m out.
