How much are they paying you to promote them?

Some new and old listens:

Laura Marling - Semper Femina. Wow! I thought Short Movie was a strong album, this blew me away on the first listen. She's got a bit of a Roy Harper vibe going on now, which is great by me. And what a fantastic voice! (Addendum: Gurdjieff’s Daughter from Short Movie is my favourite song of the millenium so far...)



Which leads nicely onto...

Roy Harper - Stormcock. Amazing - lyrics, voice, textures, song structures. I love the way it all takes its time, with only four songs.

Case Lang Viers - same. Utterly charming and beautiful. Could I say this is kd's best album? Listened to it on a funky bright blue vinyl I picked up while in the States

Patrick Moraz - The Story of i. Classic prog that uniquely mixed world music into rock. Got to love the electric slinky!

Nick Cave - Skeleton Tree. Sad, poetic, very beautiful.

This weeks album is BNQT - Volume 1. Which is basically Midlake and friends (Grandaddy, Franz ferdinand, Band of Horses.). It rocks a bit more than Midlake but still has that 70's feel.

And the Moonlandingz continues to be the greatest album of the 21st century.

Happyness - Write In. What the Stone Roses should now sound like.

Enjoyed that, although they seemed to run out of things to say at the end of the album, tossing expletives around for the hell of it.

A good week for new releases; John Mellencamp is back on form with his Sad Clowns and Hillbillies album and The Delta Saints' Monte Vista is worth a listen. Still haven't had chance to listen to Mark Lanegan's new album yet either.

Slowdive/Slowdive and Perfume Genius / No Shape - albums are both terrific.

The slowdive albums great.

I listened to the new Kasabian album today. I won't make that mistake again.

Jethro Tull - Benefit; in the 2013 Wilson remaster. Sounds better than it ever did before!

Steve Hackett - The Night Siren. Excellent new LP from the ex-Genesis maestro, in slightly crackly lilac vinyl. Last two tracks really good.

Björk Vulnicura - a hard album to get into, for me anyway, but listening to this on vinyl for the first time, it really clicked. Looking forward to checking out the other versions!

New Kasabian is very disappointing...they seem to of lost that magic spark.

Yes I bought the Kasabian album and have listened to the Slowdive album on Spotify, really wish it had been the other way around

The Kasabian album does prove that you can judge a book (or album.) by it's cover.

I'm enjoying Clean Cut Kid's Felt album. I saw them support Michael Kiwanuka at the Royal Albert Hall on Friday and having never heard of them before, enjoyed their set enough to seek out the album.

They're playing the Scala on Wednesday.

I gave that Kasbian album a listen and after a while had to check to make sure the phone hadn't shuffled itself on to some other band. Really strange to see where they've ended up given the energy and edge their debut album had.

An unusual mix will be soundtracking my weekend...

I've recently discovered the Synthwave genre and from this I have albums from Voyag3r, Carpenter Brut and SURVIVE to listen to.

As well as that the new Paul Weller needs to be listened to. I have liked the few tracks I've heard off of it and have high hopes for the album.

I also need to give the new Gorrillaz another chance....multiple listens and it's just not clicking for me. It just plays as a weak compilation album with minimal tracks to get excited about.
