Now that you ask I have been seeking out two strands since the death of atomic gone- Will.I.am Onyeabor,

1. African Electronic Music and

2. New 2017 Music.

This I have been enjoying of late,

and this also,

Very Nigeria 70 in places.

This is also excellent,

The Sacred Paws single was one of the best things of last year, along with Spinning Coin and Pinegrove i think.

Deegers, i've been after this one for a long time, and never managed to get it, i thought it would have been perfect for a moon hop, but sadly it's being reissued this year so i can't get it, but, if you don't have his stuff, Shadow might fill a bit of the Onyeabor void.

Dana Gillespie's version of Bowie's 'Andy Warhol' in better-than-original-shocker. The rest of the LP is pretty good too.

I'm really enjoying the Sacred Paws album but it reminds me of a band I listened to back in the day, just can't remember who. The Raincoats and a Delta 5 spring to mind but I think there's someone else. Help required.

The single getting lots of play on BBC 6music reminds me of Talking Heads.

I had that Usha Uthup record, i may still have it actually, but i think it was in a poly bag of records that i left lying in a pub in London once. There was a bunch of Bollywood stuff that i'd brought back from Calcutta, then i got drunk.

Today has been all about the Aidan Moffat album from the Where You're Meant To Be film - the smallest one seems to really like the sweary songs.

Been listening to the new Blackfield album in the wait for Steven Wilson's upcoming album later in the year (the previews sound incredible!). It's not half bad!
Also been listening to a band called Groundation who's loose jazzy albums are a breath of fresh air in the world of reggae!
I'd post artwork but haven't got a clue how!

Steven Wilson's solo stuff is fantastic. I've always found Blackfield a little bit too cheesy for my taste, but some of his other projects are great.

Have you ever listened to his drone project 'Bass Communion'? Some excellent albums there  8)

The new Grails record, Hymnal Chalice, came out on Friday. It's a cracker!

Post by: h1e2l3l4o on Sat, Feb 18, 2017, 16:07 PM
I have indeed! Bass Communion II being my favourite although the track' Glacial' from Molotov and Haze is achingly beautiful! I think No-Man's last few albums are fantastic too (especially Returning Jesus and Together We're Stranger) although I've always preferred Steven's vocals over Tim's . I think Steven Wilson's solo stuff has been so good, that I'm not too saddened by Porcupine Tree's apparent demise!

I've had a quick preview of Grails - sounds like I'd enjoy their stuff!

Funnily enough, a few hours after you posting this we were driving home through Handsworth.

No revolution in sight - a cat that fortunately changed its mind about running into the road in front of the traffic was the pinnacle of excitement.

Anybody mentioned the new Michael Chapman album? Great stuff.

Sneeze - All My Monsters

This is more of a hobby project than a proper album and it's pretty rough around the edges but nonetheless I've had these tunes stuck in my head for weeks now (The Button & Anchors Down are particular highlights).

I've been listening to some of the music programmes on Radio Scotland. I'm particularly enjoying Nicola Meighan's show on a Friday night, Roddy Hart's show on a Tuesday night and of course Uncle Vic Galloway's show on a Monday night. All three are partial to some Fence related stuff.

The new Roddy Woomble album, a bit of a departure from his other solo albums, featuring Sorren & Hannah.
They all sounded great at the Moseley Folk Festival in Birmingham earlier this evening and, to cross posts, Roddy spoke from the stage about the significance of the new bridge and how Hannah and Sorren have a long drive to get to the opening in time to play, presumably with KC.

Earlier in the day, Fenne Lily, who is due to support KC in Germany in October, played some beautiful songs from her forthcoming debut album, which will be worth listening out for. She said she is having difficulty choosing titles for some of the songs, so perhaps KC could share some tips!

That's an interesting selection DiBa.  Almost verging on Mixclub territory....Talking of which......?

Never thought I would hear Tim Rose and Leonard Nimoy in the same mix.  I was considering William Shatners " Lucy in the sky" for this years Mixclub so that's scuppered.

Interesting choices.  Particularly Pardon Moi.
I think you were a bit harsh about some of the previous suggestions Deegers but Arcade Fire always saves the day.

I just faced the new Sparks album a spin and it reminds me of Sparks.  And 10cc.


Also enjoying music by Jen Cloher, Jane Weaver and Goat.

Last week saw an in-store by Amadou & Mariam and it was a lovely set.
Some folks may have missed that Manu Chao has free new songs on his website. Hope tgat means a new album is coming.

Never thought he'd get close to making anything as lovely as the Magical World of the Strands album again; but this is within a (Senor Pussy)cat's whisker of being as good.
