Also, what's with the critical bigging up of the new Beach House? I may just be an old curmudgeon, but I've listened to it a bunch of times now and I can't really hear anything more than "inoffensive" in there.

Verse of Birds arrived today!

It is filling my ears with bird rhyme as I write.

Yeah, I like them, I guess, but I read a couple of interviews where they went "ANYONE that says this album sounds ANYTHING like our last one is a complete PHILISTINE and an IDIOT who doesn't know anything about MUSIC", and I listened to the album again and it still sounded very much like a slightly weaker version of Teen Dream. Huh.

Same here, but I haven't listened yet!

NP: Giant Giant Sand Tucson - you'd expect a 70-minute Howe Gelb album to be quite hit and miss, but this actually seems nicely consistent on first listen!

I've been thoroughly enjoying Endangered Blood's self-titled album lately.  For jazz nerds, the band is Jim Black drums, Trevor Dunn bass, Chris Speed tenor sax, and Oscar Noreiga alto sax and bass clarinet.  Good stuff.  It's available on Spotify if anyone's interested.  They also recorded a very good Tiny Desk Concert for NPR's website.

When the first untitled/uncredited record (10) on Sensate Focus came out it was assumed to be Mark Fell. That's all confirmed and the second 12" arrived in the post this week. The first one I liked a whole lot but this thing kicks it into a higher gear. Almost cliché sounds of 90's NY House but put through a wringer that will leave you dizzy once you've played 5 it times in a row. Which I've done multiple times.

You know how Todd Trainer is an awesome drummer right? If after recording "Elephant" from Excellent Italian Greyhound someone put an 808 in his lap and a gun to his head and told him to make house music it would sound like the beat that dominates the middle section of the first side. Amazing record.

^^^Interesting^^^

Daphne Oran came up on shuffle on my way home from the beer shop, and I have accordingly just burst through the front door, thrown my bag and coat actross the room and slung this on at high volume:


Daphne Oram - The Oram Tapes

Does anyone have any post-Oram listening advice for early Electronics pioneers? I only know Delia Derbyshire really.  What else do I need?

Hey Narlus. Your PM box is full. Did you ever get a copy of that "Eight Trails, One Path" comp. I seem to remember you were after it but didn't get one on record store day. I can (last I checked) get you one if you're still looking. PM me if so.

Listening now. Maybe it's just good timing, or the enthusiasm of first impressions, but it's sounding pretty magnificent to these ears.

In the meantime, I gave it one listen while doing some work, and while it did sound very nice, I can't say much about it yet. It's exciting that you liked it so much though!

Hundred Waters - Hundred Waters

Listened to the first half of this last night, and it's quite good. Sort of a Fleet Foxes thing.

Reminds me I'm still not sure what I think about Fleet Foxes. They're in there with Counting Crows for me: a few songs I'm crazy about, and a few others I wince through. Is this normal?

Yeah, I was going to end with "folks who do not like Fleet Foxes need not apply."

I think their first one was pretty, then I didn't follow up with their next one.

Must be at least a week since I came on here and gushed about how amazing the latest Shackleton (double) album is...Machinefabriek apart, probably my favourite thing this year.

Enslaved
Below the Lights and Isa
As I normally do after I give someone a recommendation, I revisited the music in question (early 2000s Swedish extreme metal), and had some good times with Darkane, Dark Tranquillity, late Entombed, etc. But eventually I moved over the border to the Enslaved albums of the same period, and goddamn, they really had it going on. I spin Eld quite often (16 minute opening track = a commitment to the cause that I can't help but admire), but the more modern stuff from the last decade is, while less harsh, more rounded and no less accomplished. Good shit.

Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the two albums bookending this pair (Monumension and Ruun).

I was playing a few tracks from A Can Of Bees and Underwater Moonlight to the girls last night, and now I've woken up hellbent on ploughing through Robyn Hitchcock's discography.
