A thread for new albums. Seems appropriate for a music forum I think. There was a spell of yearly threads a while back but seems to have died off.

The new Black Midi. Love it. Only ever dipped into their previous output but have this on serious rotation the last few days. Proper proggy goodness

Really like this. Sung in Cornish and Welsh. Maybe I'm getting caught up in the language side of it but for fans of Cate Le Bon/Super Furries.

'Nighty Night' by Jeff T Byrd on Irish tape label Fort Evil Fruit. One I bought on physical media, and listened to quite a bit. Quite the trip. Deadly cover too. I remember I was listening to this panned out on the couch, and my housemate came in. I could feel him standing there with the door open for a minute behind me, and then he closed it, and was gone. Given his horror at the mildest free jazz I sometimes play, I wonder what he thought...

Here comes the blurb:

Jeff T Byrd is an American multi-instrumentalist currently living in Vienna, and a member of the Budokan Boys.

"The starting point for Nighty Night was a collection of cassette tapes my dad made in the 1980s — recordings of nothing in particular: telephone calls, thunderstorms, people talking, cars, airplanes, machinery, TV news. Augmenting these with my own field recordings (made on tape and digital over the last 20 years) and improvisations on piano, saxophone and synthesizer, I collaged and layered according to intuition rather than logic. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I was caught up in a process of revisiting and reenacting my memories. Some of it is about my childhood, some about my dad (who died of cancer a couple years back) and about a city I loved and left (New Orleans). As much as the album mourns those losses, it’s also a celebration of the life these things continue to have in my imagination. The final compositions exist somewhere between autobiography and dream".

Lots of lovely recommendations so far — thanks folks!

I am all over the "new" Yasuaki Shimizu album at the moment. Recorded in 1984 but apparently never got a release... until now.



Yasuaki Shimizu is a Japanese composer, saxophonist and producer. He is known for his interpretations of the music of J.S. Bach, in particular the "Cello Suites 1-6" re-arranged for and performed on tenor saxophone.


Ah here, I'm getting in on this lad

Thanks!
