Dr Rock

I'm gonna name one track so you may actually check it out.

Love Kim Petra's Era 1 (it's all I know so far), AG Cook's 7G. Everything Buttgammon mentions (their suggestions always read like my most played or to do list). A lot of the stuff I'm really into from this time seems to have been released as singles or EPs. Really like the new COBRAH ep, the one with Good Puss on, the new Doss EP Four new Hit Songs and bits by Disciples like On my Mind and Better on my Own

batwings

Sunday Mouse - This Is You
Harry Murder - All Things Are Empty
The Laughing Monster - Squid Disco
Simone Chelsea - Who's Asking?
New Tulip and Shady Uncle - Unnecessary Surgery

I forgot a really obvious one - Xiu Xiu performing the music of Twin Peaks. Absolutely astonishing.

The Mollusk

(Sandy) Alex G - Rocket

Incredible album. I started a thread about him a little while back and it fell on deaf ears. Shame really because it's exactly the sort of quirky experiment yet gorgeous folk music a lot of people on here typically love.

Cool. I love Meticulous Bird

Julius Eastman - Femenine (1974)
Arthur Russell - Iowa Dream
Neil Young - Hitchhiker; Homegrown
Robbie Basho - Song of the Avatars: The Lost Master Tapes
Wilhelm Kempff – Beethoven: The Complete Wartime Piano Sonata Recordings; The Late Beethoven Sonatas: Pre-War 78-rpm Recordings (1925-1936)

Thomas Brinkmann - Raupenbahn
Shirley Collins - Lodestar; Heart's Ease
Colleen - A Flame My Love, A Frequency
Girl Ray - Earl Grey + The Way We Came Back
Yves Tumor - Experiencing the Deposit of Faith
Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks - Sparkle Hard
Pierre Bastien - The Mecanocentric Worlds of Pierre Bastien

who cares

I hardly ever hear anything new, and rare to like something and also rare to remember what it was later. I thought Desire by Anna Calvi was very good, and actually bothered to note down a few lyrics so I could find it later. Blackout is good too.

edit- oh it's from ten years ago, lol

Chedney Honks

Eric Copeland - Cheap Treat (Panda Bear version)

https://youtu.be/1qdeZhvhBPU

Bumping pop.


Rae Sremmurd - Powerglide

https://youtu.be/0qJRSoyrJzU

Driving round auto tune banger, ecstatic truth through repetition.


Home - We're Finally Landing

https://youtu.be/zR6fECxF44I

The warm synth sound of Summoning Salt (7 years old, sorry).


Kettenkarussell - Maybe

https://youtu.be/hpKlCKL9FsM

Deep house tearjerker.


W&W ft. Kizuna AI - The Light

https://youtu.be/YtU_sb4jYE8

Euro trance/dubstep featuring Japanese vocaloid, somehow incredibly euphoric now I'm old enough to just enjoy tasteless music for what it is.


ONE - Onegai Darling


https://youtu.be/mHDAAgnBriE

Really aggressively catchy vocaloid, sorry about the video but it has the best quality audio I could find.

willbo

i forgot to say that one of my fave bands of the past few years has been the female-fronted stoner/alt-rock group Royal Thunder

SteveDave

I'd say-

"Tranquility Base Hotel + Casino" Arctic Monkeys
"Purple Mountains" Purple Mountains
"Transcience" Wreckless Eric
"A Comfortable Man" Cathal Smyth
"The Magic Whip" Blur
"Seeking New Gods" Gruff Rhys
"Blackstar" Dave Bowie

There's probably more...

Played that one a lot, great music for summer strolls, as is this one:



My Woman by Angel Olsen definitely my favourite of the past 5/6 though.


willbo

I've got My Woman and All Mirrors and have listened to Mirrors far more. Woman didn't grab me as much for some reason and I remember it being more traditionally rock I suppose. I'll dig it out and give it more time.

She's got a new EP out now and her duet with Sharon Van Etten was great. I picked up the recent boxed set too. Fantastic artist

Oh actually All Mirrors is the one I'm thinking of! Like My Woman too but yeah All Mirrors is the album I had on repeat for ages.

willbo

I only have Woman cause I got it in Oxfam, but I bought Mirrors new. I remember Woman having stoner/Hendrix ish guitar jams on it, but I've only played it a couple of times.

Custard

Jeff Rosenstock - Worry

An incredibly energetic, upbeat and fun rock n roll record, with a cover I never fail to find funny

DIIV Is The Is Are
Slowdive Slowdive
Altin Gun Gece
Rival Consoles Articulation

Neville Chamberlain

Black Midi - Schlagenheim and Cavalcade

Do you ever use the YouTube algorithm to find music? When I have YouTube on AutoPlay it loves playing me these guys. Not like that's a bad thing, the YouTube algorithm is a great DJ

Generally not unless there's an interesting thumbnail. Oncle Jazz has a terrible album cover which would have put me off if anything.

Oh and I discovered Slowdive 10 years before Youtube was invented son.

<pats head patronisingly>

willbo

Not sure I can name a Slowdive song but they're one of the canon dreampop/shoegaze bands aren't they? I love finding stuff thru YouTube tho

Epic Bisto

There may be more, but these are the first ones that I thought of:


  • Billy Woods - Hiding Places
  • Blind Idiot God - Before Ever After
  • Dorcha - Honey Badger
  • Insides - Soft Bonds
  • Little Simz - The Grey Area
  • Notekillers - Songs and Jams Vol.1
