Yeah, I couldn't really tell what the Fields were going for this time around.

I think by now he's content to go for cheap jokes or puns instead of shooting for any kind of emotional resonance? Which I also find troubling and disappointing, but then again, the thing's pretty catchy. So I can't hate it, really (and am in fact liking it, though I have no doubt that it will have little if any lasting effect)

Can't wait.

Anyone who liked Andy Stott's EPs last year should check out CI, who is Andy's sort of mentor

The record is atrocious. Apparently "God wants us to wait" (easily the worst song on the album) is just a re-write of a pre-MF song from back in the day, like circa '86. Anyone (RoyBiggins, Lucy) will tell you that I'm pretty much the most obsessive living Stephin Merritt fan (and consider him the greatest living songwriter, ahead of Cohen, Dylan, Wilson, Webb, and Newman), but holy crap this record is a stinker.

Sweeeeeeet -- Damon Albarn's newest collaboration with Tony Allen, this time with Flea on board. They're going for a Fela Kuti/Sun Ra vibe. I can dig it.

Also, are we excited about the new Fiona Apple album, which may come out in June? I am!

i'd agree but i never actually listened to the blue album. which, maybe that's for the best.

this is a pretty incredible set they did a few weeks ago. it incorporates a lot of the new record http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpQQy52T0Ts

Gareth Dickson – Quite A Way Away (it's on 12K, but he's a singer, intriguing)


Have you heard any of his previous stuff? I'm not a big expert or anything, but really quite liked what I have heard by him. Some of it is kind of quiet folky singer-songwritery stuff, but some of it is definitely more ambient/experimental/whatever. So I'd say the artist/label pairing does make sense. I should definitely give this a listen.

Never have! But I like 90% of 12K so I'm all ears. :-)  I would actually really like to find something in that vein that I really liked.

I just wanted to come back to this album, which has slowly grown on me. With both singing and recognisable guitar playing, it's not the type of thing I usually spend a long time listening to, but there's a really compelling atmosphere to the music, and the songs have these unusual structures that sway and build, or change into something else altogether halfway through. A lot of reviewers have cited Nick Drake as a reference, which is fair enough I suppose - there's a fragile timbre to the voice in particular. I also hear a more subtle echo of Thee, Stranded Horse's Churning Strides album from a few years' back, in the momentum, mood and tangled web of string-picking.

Anyway, if anyone fancies a gentle folk singer with unusual song structures and complex, atmospheric guitar playing, I recommend it highly. You can hear a couple of tracks at the 12K link below.

As I recently found out through the Facebook page of a friend's friend, he's playing a house show in Strasbourg. A bit intimidating since I don't know the people in question, but I'll try to muster up the courage to go!

I'm listening to this for the fifth time or so now and liking it so much that I'm 100% sure I'll really have to overcome my social anxiety and go to that house show on Tuesday. "Nunca Jamas", in particular, is a great song.

edit: and yeah, I get a Thee, Stranded Horse vibe too...

It's official, the new Walkmen album is my favorite record so far this year.

2012 has largely underachieved in terms of new music, so I'm pretty excited about Heaven. And surprised! I love The Walkmen, but their records usually take a while to sink in.

I was just thinking today that 2012 has been slim pickings. I only have about 12 or 14 things I've been really keen on.
