In an attempt to keep up, I've been listening to some of the artists mentioned here.

I'm really enjoying Desperate Journalist, but the chorus to Hollow unfortunately reminds me of how Chabuddy G tunefully intones 'hello!' in People Just Do Nothing.

Why haven't any of you mentioned Richard Dawson - 2020 yet

I prefer Peasant, but they're both great albums.


I think all my favourites have been mentioned in this thread already, but I'll just be another person saying how great the Purple Mountains album is.

I did listen to the Purple Mountains a bit, and like it, but I don't know much background about the musician or his previous band, other than that a lot of other singers I like liked him.

Lola Marsh - Remember Roses is a beautiful, stirring record full of fantastic tunes, yet they're almost completely unknown

I really like Janelle Monae, but her albums are always way overlong. Bit of trimming of the skits, interludes, and weaker tracks in a playlist, and they are brilliant records. Less is more, Miss J!

I can't say I've noticed that tbh, there are definitely worse offenders.

I was actually thinking of starting a thread recently about a trend of hiphop/rnb/etc artists now releasing mini albums/mixtapes/ep's Bree Runway is an example, pretty much runs about 20 minutes but it's all gold, a lot of them don't seem to be doing physical sales now so I don't think they feel the need to pad things out with filler. Kind of like the brevity in a way.

Although skits are pretty much always a waste of time.
