Oasis ! FFs whats wrong with me? i cannot stand them.

for some reason have found myself drawn to Definitely Maybe ( which I don't think I've listened to for about 20 years ) and some live shows from '94. a fair amount of novelty in there but have been enjoying a handful of tracks. the album *sounds* amazing actually. great job from Owen Morris.

I'm listening to what I consider the greatest cover of all time, Isaac Hayes' unsurpassable rendition of By The Time I Get To Phoenix:



My good lady is unwell in bed, but our wonderfully gorgeous new kitty cat is keeping me company. She's a rescued stray, but after only a couple of days in her new home she's following us around from room to room, sleeping on our laps and purring at every stroke and cuddle :D

Psychic Ills new one Inner Journey Out is sounding pretty good, 3rd listen since Friday and its really suiting this early summer heat wave we`re experiencing in Scotland.

Lots of Stephen Stills, particularly the Manassas stuff.

But I also played a few bits of that Psychic Ills album and enjoyed that too.

I heard you Scots were enjoying prolonged weather - we've had 2 splendid days in Yorkshire but I think it's going to change...

Gang of Four- Return the Gift

strange one, this. it acts as a kind of a greatest hits. but what actually happened is they went into the studio to rerecord new versions. it serves two purposes- as a way to sell the songs without giving their old record company royalties- and as a way to rectify what they saw as poor production on the early stuff.
it does rock, that's for sure. infact it almost rocks too much- the drums sound huge and the guitars are pin sharp. kinda loses some of that lofi postpunk flavour.
what a great band though. the way everything interlocks and plays off each other. the guitar playing is quite minimalist but shit hot. Marxism you can dance too :)
I just ordered Entertainment! to get the original versions.

Alpha Stone - Stereophonic Pop Art Music

Apart from a cursory listen to The Darkside fifteen years ago, I've never really listened to Bassman's post-Sp3 work. Spinning this now courtesy of Youtube, and it's proving a very pleasant listen thus far :D

that sounds right up my street- will have to check them out!

today I've been listening to Steve Gunn- Eyes on The Lines. it's superb, his best album yet I reckon. he can no longer be described as folk- everything is plugged in and full of rippling guitar lines. this would be perfect music for driving down a dusty American road.

this live performance of the opening track is brilliant:

I know a few of these bands have close ties but don't know if they share members. Really impressed with the lazy stoner psych style from Chile... Follakzoid, Psychedelic Schafferson Jetplane and La Hell Gang are all excellent too!

Been checking out the La Hell Gang album Thru Me Again, that is quality, looking forward to seeing them later this month, that Chicos De Nazca album is really good as well those 2 share at least one member, probably two, cool sounds though.

New TFC album...

I've struggled with some of TFC's more recent work, although Shadows was definitely a grower and i love that now. I can honestly say i rarely listen to any of the albums though very often nowadays (even though i still love it when they drop into a random playlist). So i'm trying to rediscover them again through the new album. Upon first hearing "I'm In Love" i just didn't like it. Absolutely nothing grabbed me and it it seemed to just lack direction (no pun intended!) All i could think of was "these guys can do so much better!". So here we go...

Album sounds well produced and the songs sound good but i'm just not getting drawn in by some of it. Still can't get into "I'm In Love" and there are a couple of other songs which don't have that instant WOW factor. Some really great guitar work on it, especially from Raymond but, and it pains me to say it, Norman's songs sound the weakest of the songwriting trio this time round. Nice use of organs and synths in all the right places (kudos to Dave McGowan).

I think Raymond has really stepped up on this one. His songs are inventive, intruiging and really rather gorgeous. In fact this is easily Raymond's best set of songs on a recent album. And there is a lot of great work by Dave on these too!

Gerry's song are as strong as ever and are easy to spot as soon as they start. All sunshine and beauty. Business as usual for him. Can't help but melt with the harmonies on his tracks too.

Hmmm... Norman. I'm struggling here. "I'm In Love" is upbeat and all jingly-jangly, but it just doesn't go anywhere or have that killer hook to grab me. When i first heard it, it just sounded bland and i'm not sure it was ideal as the album opener. The opener and "The Darkest Part Of The Night" are two of Norman's weakest and are probably the weakest tracks on the entire album. "Darkest Part..." sounds rather "same-y" with, again, a lack of hook to pull me in. The closer, "Connected To Life" is much better and is nicely placed as the closer.

So there you go... my tuppence worth. Curious to what others honestly think. I'm trying to be honest, but really open minded here too as falling out of love with a band who's music has been such a big part of your life is not something i really want to have to go through!

Hamilton Leithauser & Rostam- A 1000 Times

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9FILAkKinQ

Hamilton from the much missed Walkmen teaming up with a guy from Vampire Weekend. I'm not familiar with Vampire Weekend, but whatever they are doing seems to be working. what a fantastic song- Hamilton's solo album was a bit too Sinatra for me, this still has a bit of that at the beginning but also has all the power of The Walkmen :)

I can't get into the Goat LP. It has flutes and pan pipes and we operate a strictly no pan pipes rule here and frown upon any unnecessary use of the flute.* :D

I have been listening to The Heads a lot recently. Tilberg is currently playing rather loudly. It is a beast. 8)

Ha ha! Brilliant! Agreed 100% on pan pipes. When I hear those South American buskers with pan pipes I have to rush past. Even worse is that apparent 'relaxation' music they play in spas which has wall-to-wall pan pipes. After a minute of that I feel more stressed than ever...

New Moon Duo track http://www.thefader.com/2016/11/01/moon ... -cold-fear

"Cold Fear," a haunting, exhilarating song with hints of '80s minimal electro no wave. Over email, Johnson told The FADER that the track "is about primal fear, like drowning, or falling endlessly in a nightmare. It's a creeping, striking feeling that is also a real rush. It makes you feel alive.”

Liking this, plus a Saturday night gig in the diary for next yr and a new album, this kinda news makes my day, now if only Spiritualized would do the same ..

Also, Psychic Ills - Inner Journey Out, such a fine album, Spzretents lukewarm live review is making me wary but I think I`ll go see them later this month anyway.

It is very possible I caught them on an off night. I had heard great things about them live. Perhaps my expectations were unrealstic?

After being utterly steamrollered by the new Trainspotting 2 trailer, I had to look up the astonishing song driving it:

Wolf Alice - Silk



I'd heard of them before, but never any music until now. Further proof, if any was ever needed, that today's genuinely popular (in terms of high chart position) music can be utterly wonderful :)

Hope Sandoval & the Warm Inventions- 'Until the Hunter'

Been waiting for this one for quite a while. I've only listened to half of it so far, but it's managing to surpass my expectations. Everything Hope's done up to this point hasn't strayed too far outside of what you'd expect from Mazzy Star, but this one is very distinctive in her solo work and her work with Mazzy Star. The first track 'Into the Trees' is over nine minutes and incredibly atmospheric, but the lyrics get fairly specific. The two singles preceding it are a pretty good indication of the stylistic range. The second song does sound like a Mazzy Star song that didn't make it onto 'Seasons of Your Day.' I guess what's always been so great about Hope's solo work and Mazzy Star is how there's really nothing wrong with that fact at all.

It's very late. I'm 36 today (technically yesterday I suppose, but I've not been to bed yet), I've set up my wonderful wife's IV fluids for the night, I've got some good beer by my side and I've just spend the best part of £100 on new music. For all of that, I'm listening to Lazer Guided Melodies, because sometimes nothing else will do. It's been with me for more than half of my life; favourites come and go, and I still devour both new and old music at a voracious rate my finances can ill afford, but I seriously doubt anything will ever supplant LGM as the most wonderful album in existence. So on that note, happy Xmas and NY, fellow Spz lovers and friends :)

Sounds like you are in a very stressful situation. I wish you both the very best. It helps put things in the proper perspective.
Sometimes nothing works likes music you love. Nothing.
Sit back and enjoy. Sounds like you have earned it.
Happy Birthday, Happy Holidays and a very Happy & more importantly Healthy New Year.
