They are still going? I tuned out long after "Come on die young", and them making tits of themselves about Metallica at Glastonbury. Kappa all the way

Edgelord gotta Edge. World acclaimed band don't mean shit to me. 

 

It's you that dont appreciate music not me.

Well you have an issue with good music. But it's all subjective. Don't shit on my taste and I won't yours. 

 

Was only asking a question. 

Think it’s out in March. 
 

edit. 19th Feb :)

New Tindersticks is a bit too loose and unstructured for me, I'm disappointed with it. Feels quite demo-y and sketchy, more like a Stuart Staples record than a full-blown Tindersticks release. I'm nerdy about this band, seen them live 30+ times (only band I've seen more than that is the Bad Seeds) since the 90s and understand their need to refocus and develop their sound, but it's getting too deconstructed now and too far away from what made them so distinctive and special. I really miss the lush, dramatic instrumentation and cinematic, faded glamour of their older records. They're almost into Suicide territory on this album, feels regressive compared to what they did before.

 

 

Enjoying this.

I had a listen this morning. There’s nothing wrong with it. It’s not particularly interesting either though. Just more ambient post-rock that doesn’t really grab or excite. Maybe I was in the wrong mood.

I felt similar when I listened to it yesterday.

Cassandra Jenkins - An Overview on Phenomenal Nature is short (32 minutes) but very sweet.

 

 

And the new Tindersticks album is, as ever, sublime.

 

 

Cassandra Jenkins album is superb, thanks for that - really calming which is just what I need right now.

Well I’ve heard a couple of the tracks in recent weeks that I thought were decent. Tonight after a really shit day and feeling tired and a bit emotionally drained I put the full album on and turned it up loud and i made a connection with it and I think it’s typically Mogwai and typically great.

Ditto. Enjoyed having this on in the background while I work from home. 


This gets the thumbs up from me.

I’ve listened to the Mogwai album more and I’m really enjoying it now, if you like Mogwai anyway then it’s them doing what they do, really well. Sounds like damning it with faint praise but you kind of get used to them being that good so more of the same isn’t a bad thing. Suits a walk on a miserable rainy day - deffo need to give it time & space.

Prog metal stalwarts Evergrey have really found their second wind these past few years. Their last few albums have gone from strength to strength and the first cut from their latest release, Escape Of The Phoenix, is another evolution of their classic metal licks with electronic beats helping to carry the chorus. Not groundbreaking, but it sure sounds good:
