    Certainly not lo-fi, and a little old to be "indie", but Roy Harper's speculative folk, borrowing from the long-form explorations of Keats and John Coltrane, has to be among the greatest song-writers of this era (and perhaps a few others). Check him out. His Stormcock is a thing of wonder.

    The new Grouper album (amazingly, a bunch of offcuts from the recording of Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill) is lovely. I like it more than AIA, although I'll be going back to that soon.

    I highly recommend The Staves's debut album "Dead & Born & Grown", I usually play loads of different albums throughout the week, but this one has stayed permanently in. Absolutely beautiful harmonies, melodies that lodge themselves firmly in your head, and some really good, clever and meaningful lyrics.

    It's kind of like Mumford and Sons but with women, and less annoying. And a lot less shoehorned in religious shit.

    Jason Molina has passed away. :(

    The world has lost a truly unique voice.

    The new Strokes album is streaming now, it is a little bit of a gem.

    The lead track is a bit of a gem.

    Eska's song Gatekeeper has been knocking about now for at least a year in various forms, but she's looking now to put it out as an EP.

    You can listen to a bit of her older stuff on her Soundcloud page, where she's sounding less like Prince and more like Joni Mitchell, which is some range if nothing else.

    I certainly hope funding for her new EP succeeds. Really interested to hear what else she's been working on in the past year.

    There's a new Sun Kil Moon album (Benji) out next week. Kozelek is similar to Will Oldham in the way that he releases too much to really keep up with, so this was probably going to firmly remain in my "Yeah, I'll check it out someday" list, but if all the reviews are like this then it seems we've got a cracker on our hands.

    (For comparison, Ghosts of the Great Highway received an 8.3)

    Have a look around for an EP called Vegetal by Icelandic Low. Very good stuff indeed. Found them on Google Music.

    Found them on Bandcamp:

    The new Angel Olsen album is blowing my mind.

    I'm actually quite surprised. I listened to some stuff from Half Way Home at the time and didn't like it at all.

    She did some work on one of the recent Bonnie 'Prince' Billy albums (Wolfroy Goes to Town) if you're looking for some pedigree, by the way.

    A glossary on the lyrics in Sun Kil Moon's Benji

    Carissa: Mark Kozelek’s second cousin, who died last year at the age of 35 in a freak accident involving flammable waste. And as we soon learn, it’s not the first time a member of the Kozelek clan has perished in such a fashion—Carissa’s grandfather (Kozelek’s uncle) was also killed by an exploding aerosol can. The last time Kozelek saw Carissa alive was at his funeral.

    Jim Wise (real name John): A friend of Kozelek’s father who is under house arrest, awaiting trial, for mercy-killing his wife. He attempted to take his own life afterward, but the gun jammed, and he "failed at suicide."

    Friend who was thrown from his moped: A classmate of Kozelek’s who was killed when a truck rear-ended him.

    The girl who sat in front of Kozelek in remedial: Another classmate who perished in a vehicular accident.

    Mark Denton: An old friend of Kozelek’s who died of a heart attack.

    "A neighborhood thug": The deadbeat asshole boyfriend who made off with Micheline’s welfare checks and lifesavings. He’s currently serving life in “a Florida penitentiary with his father, both of them for murder.”


    My word.

    I appreciate Kozelek's much more autobiographical and literal recent albums, but I can't lie: I prefer everything before (and including) Admiral Fell Promises.

    I haven't heard any of those collab LPs he did last year, but there's only two SKM LPs after AFP anyway! (Among the Leaves, which was generally sorta panned, and Benji)

    I've listened to Benji a couple of times today, thankfully the tunes aren't as depressing as the lyrical content. Good album.
  • Deleted user 12 February 2014 19:41:32
    Yeah the collaborative stuff was more like it also.

    I am a total sucker for April, though. This is one of the best things I've heard for years:

    New Sun Kil Moon live album streaming, including stuff from Benji. Recorded at the start of April, so it's recent.

    The songs are a bit different too, it's not just recreations of the album versions.

    I've finally discovered how amazing Anaďs Mitchell is, Hadestown and Young Man in America are utterly brilliant.

    Been listening to Benji more. Still prefer older stuff but I can appreciate his simpler, direct songs more now.

    Carissa is such a great opener. Think it's one of my favourite Kozelek numbers. All it takes is the first three notes of that and I'm hooked for the whole album.

    I'm really liking the new Wovenhand album.

    Kinda Gira-y, Cave-y, that sort of thing but with more punch than Gira's solo stuff had.
  • Deleted user 11 July 2014 14:39:51
    More punch than Gira?

    I'm scared.
  • Deleted user 11 July 2014 14:41:04
    P.S. thanks for the link Tom, sounds good so far.

    More punch than The Angels of Light anyway. :)

    There's some straight-up metal-y riffs in there!
