    Longpigs - Lost Myself. Nothing behind it, just come on the shuffle.

    Kanye West - Yeezus

    Great production and good beats all ruined by awful lyrics and delivery. After the excellent MBDTF it's a shame that it's such a steep fall in quality. Some of the reviews baffle me.

    Sigur Ros - Kveikur

    Probably their strongest release since Takk. This new aggressive side really helps push the band forward after a couple of years treading water. There's no 'Svefn-G-Englar' on here but it doesn't need it. Really liking this one.

    Smith Westerns - Soft Will

    Their last release 'Dye It Blonde' was one of the albums of the summer last year - all glammed up like T-Rex and Ziggy-era Bowie, it spilled melodies and hooks on nearly every song with a freewheeling energy. This second LP still has some great melodies but lacks the energy to really push the songs further. It's a toned down affair with most of the emphasis going on the singer instead of the guitars - not a move that's paid off in my opinion. Good record, but slightly disappointing.

    Deafheaven - Sunbather

    I don't like screamed vocals - I can't hear what's being sung and the same constant tone makes nothing about them stand out imo. The only bands I can listen to who 'scream' are The Refused and Fucked Up, mostly because the music is so brilliant.

    This band falls into the same category. Heard nothing about them until reading a few reviews and thought I'd give it a whirl. Though it's been labelled as 'black metal' I'd say it has far more in common with post-rock, particularly bands such as Godspeed, Mogwai and Explosions in the Sky. The drumming and guitar work are absolutely ferocious, technically brilliant and above all melodic. The album only features seven songs, three of which are practically (often gorgeous) interludes splitting the big four tracks which all hit around the 10-15min mark. The songs build to multiple crescendo's and simmer down with some lovely guitar picking and paired back drums.

    The singing isn't so bad - I can pick out a few phrases that emphasise the songs and looking at the lyric book they actually aren't that bad. Just unintelligible for my ears!

    Probably my most played album at the minute (as if the gushing didn't give it away).

    Edit - New QOTSA's finally growing on me too. 'I Appear Missing' is brilliant.

    @Rhaegyr Loving Deafheaven here as well. Between this, Mouth Of The Architect, Palms and Sigur Ros, it's been very proggy week for my Spotify account.

    New sigur ros album too, arrived through my door yesterday. Liking it, its sounds more like jonsi solo record, not much atmospheric stuff, but its bold and certainly striking, already on a couple of repeat listens theres a lot to hear and take in.

    @Armoured_Bear Which albums / tracks? Love this one



    It kinda baffles me when people who love guitar music have a blanket disliking for the Chilis, regardless of what you think of Kiedis' rapping, socks, bad tattoos, etc, John Frusciante was in that band. And John Frusciante did stuff like this when he was in that band

    Thanks for the great clips.
    I regret never going to see RHCP live now.

    I'm listening to "To Record only water for ten days" which is wonderful.
    I've dipped into Will To Death as well but it hasn't clicked with me as much, I have lots of listening to do.
    Where should I go next?

    For me, RHCP were great with Frusciante - it wasn't quite the same when he came back, but the early 1990s were awesome.

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    @Armoured_Bear I think Shadows Collide With People would be a good choice next, or his first EP with Ataxia (which had Joe Lally from Fugazi on bass). The Empyrean is also very good, great cover of Song To The Siren

    The movie is supposedly a bit rubbish but the soundtrack is wonderful. Hans Zimmer can do no wrong.

    This concert film of Deerhunter, a.k.a. the best band on the go at the moment

    I remember seeing a trailer for this a couple of years ago and being very excited, but it had totally dropped off my radar. Turns out it was released a couple of weeks ago. It's an independent thing, but it's taken so long that the band have since released a new album and the line-up has changed a bit. However, I think this'll still serve as an impressive document.

    I'm about fifteen minutes in, and it's really nicely filmed. Does a bit more than most band filming where they simply point a camera at them and that's it. All professionally done and the VHS filter on a camera gives a nice change of pace every now and again.

    It's a very strong setlist too (although not perfect, IMHO).

    Just picked up the Lana Del Rey album Born To Die (The expanded edition with the Paradise EP included).

    Can't stop listening to it - it's absolutely epic! Over the top production, everything washed through with a gallon of angst, it's like Paloma Faith and Lauren Bacall had a kid that was brought up by James Dean and given music theory lessons by M83 and Ennio Morricone.

    Love it!


    Point of interest - I'd not heard of LDR before Tuesday, but I've got tickets to go and see Dutch symphonic metallers, Within Temptation in January (Mrs Boo is less than thrilled at the prospect) and so I picked up a couple of their albums that I hadn't got.
    One was a covers album that they released recently, with 15 covers of pop tunes, done in a WT style, to celebrate their 15th anniversary.

    One of the tracks was Del Rey's 'Summertime Sadness', which is awesome, and probably edges out the original.

    Anyway, that made me go and look up the Del Rey version, heard a couple of tracks and bought the album.

    There's a couple of immediate standouts (Born To Die, Summertime Sadness), but the rest grow on you at a rate of knots.

    Mucho recommended.

    I asked Spotify to make me a radio based on Bon Jovi and it's playing me some awesome stuff. There were a couple of turds, like some Cher, but that's easily skipped.

    Awesome thing, Spotify. I don't think I'll ever buy another album.

    "the perfect blossom is a rare thing. You could spend your life looking for one, and it would not be a wasted life"

    I don't know about that but listening to the soundtrack of The Last Samurai certainly isn't a waste of time.

    Listened to midlake's 'courage of others' sat in the garden this morning. great band, really looking forward to hearing some new material.

    I know this album doesn;t agree with some people who loved the harmonies of the trials album, but i really like the moody, dark, more agressive feel to courage.
