LOVING this, her drowsy, yawny vocals are my jam. I wasn't sure when I'd just heard a handful of her songs, but the album is fantastic.

God, I'm really enjoying this. I thought it was just going to be yet another one of those laurel canyon moogs'n'mellotrons throwback albums, and there's a bit of that in there for sure, but there's a whole different quality to most of it. It's really quite intriguing.

Big up from me for Aoife Nessa Frances too. The album is really great.

Shocking myself by not hating the new Grimes album. It's kind of robots dancing to environmental music in a rainforest stuff. Like 90's techno-hippie crap mixed with Evanescence. Njoyable.

New Elder tune ahead of the LP. Less stonery and heavy maybe. Takes a bit to get used to the cleaner, less reverby production. Good riffin' though!

NOT the new tame impala album. Meticulously produced dullness.
Most of the reviews have be great though.

Enjoying the new Caroline Rose



probably a bit of a crowded market in this kind of synth/indie/funky stuff but it has a homespun charm to it, you can kind of hear her working her way through the sound rather than it arriving fully formed.

anyone listen to the new caribou?

threw it on when out for a run yesterday. Think it's pretty shite based on the first 30 minutes anyway. has some good moments but a few crappy ones aswell. not a fan of the hip hop sounding bits at all

I really like that one "Never come back". Rest of it kinda passed me by ... but in fairness that was my first reaction to the last one too (with "Can't do without you" the one I loved on first listen), so maybe it'll grow on me

Dan Snaith is so sound. the bio on his "about" page on Spotify says this:

Biography
Hi, it's Dan. Do you make music too? I always dreamed of being a musician. When I was starting out I had access to super basic equipment and don't claim any special insight into music - just enthusiasm. If I did it, you can too. Send me your music on social media. Have fun and enjoy yourself! Bye.
