Re: Hushie Pushie new [re: 96dbFreak]  

Wire’s Colin Newman is probably the most famous member of Githead whose second album, Art Pop has just been released. And a wonderful piece of “art pop” it is too. I am variously reminded of The Beloved and New Order and Brian Eno and many others while this British-Israeli collaboration delivers some unique but highly accessible soundscapes. Highly recommended.

Thanks for the tip Stu - I do know of the Monks, quite an interesting band! I just might try to find that album.
The Monks on German Tv in 1966 (like you couldn't have done that search in ten seconds yourselves )

It's LABRYNTH, idiot!

The Monks played Berlin last year and from what I read it was quite an event. Don't know if they are back as a band or if that was just a one off.

And I want to believe that a light's shining through somehow

Tram 21 new [re: 96dbFreak]  

Brighton’s Electrelane have just released their fourth album, No Shouts, No Calls and I think it’s their best yet. Less dense that Axes, less bizarrely eclectic than The Power Out and more sophisticated than both of those or their debut, Rock It to The Moon, the grrrls have finally settled on a distinctive sound, albeit one that incorporates sounding like a cross between Stereolab, Neu! and Sonic Youth.

At Wikipedia they quote Leonie Cooper of The Guardian as saying that Electrelane have a "penchant for turning every tune in a proggy wig-out". And she’s almost right - except that they also turn some tunes into krauty and space-rocky wig-outs. Which is no bad thing, I mean, it’s what Electrelane do and they do it quite brilliantly, bless ‘em. No Shouts, No Calls is unusual in that it has a large number of actual songs, with vocals, in English, which is something of a departure for the band, though there’s still plenty of that delightful krauty space-rock groove to enjoy.

I also spent much of the weekend listening to the new Manic Street Preachers album, Send Away The Tigers which, along with the numerous EP and Japanese edition bonus tracks, is just about their rockiest effort yet, way better than the last two albums and on a par with (IMO) their best albums, Everything Must Go and This Is My Truth, Tell Me Yours. Though, to be honest, I thought James Dean Bradfield's solo album, The Great Western, from last year was better than the new MSP one.

Albie, the racist dragon new [re: EJ]  

Though not technically a new 'release', Flight of the Conchords new HBO series starts on June 17th and the first episode can be watched here. Anything with songs that feature the lines You're so beautiful/You could be a dream/or a high class prostitute can't be missed.

In reply to:

is just about their rockiest effort yet... and on a par with (IMO) their best albums... This Is My Truth, Tell Me Yours.

Thanks Stu, you really made my day with this!!! Classic humour!!!!!

I bet people can't wait to read my memoirs

Speaking of Brighton. Check out this band from Brighton. It's very Goldfrapp-esque. they're called Chungking And it has no connection to the 80's band Wang Chung.

Morningbell new [re: ghostlove]  

I love these guys. They sound like George Harrison playing for the Flaming Lips. Someone I know worked in the making of their new video, which looks pretty fucking cool.

I really shouldn't be the one reporting this... new [re: Mxy]  

My thumbs can't be arsed going through the thread on my cellphone to see if anyone's mentioned the new Wilco yet but Sky Blue Sky is really ace. Gone is the self-concious experimental tendancies of A Ghost is Born in favour of a mellow vibe akin to their earlier releases with some absolutely ridiculous (and I mean that in the best possible way) guitar shredding.

Yes, p2c's been disturbingly absent. new [re: Remade/Remodeled]  

Nope, it hasn't been mentioned since I posited the release date. I picked it up yesterday but I'm still waiting for it to grab.
