Nothing Good Since Achtung Baby new [re: Adam]  

I am halfway through the new U2 album an it is indeed quite boring. The Edge plays some nice bits of guitar here and there but Bono's whining is hard to bear on most tracks.

They got some positive reviews here in Germany for the album, I don't know why.

How can bands so good fall so far? new [re: EJ]  

In the early 90s, I thought that as long as U2 were around, they'd be making good music. I even felt embarrassed for Bowie when he released Black Tie White Noise and then Zooropa completely blew him out of the water on pretty much every level - commercially, critically and personally.

Sweden's Pogues? new [re: fiGgU_]  

Seeing as an old Swede just turned up on this forum-
the release I am most excited about this year is the comeback album from Swedish folk-prog rockers Kebnekajse. I can't find a clip of their new material on the web but here is one of their old hits from the early seventies:
Horgalåten
They basically take traditional Swedish folk tunes and give them a modern treatment. And they get away with it because they do it well.


It's LABRYNTH, idiot!

I don't know Adam, but the world witnessed this 1 new [re: Adam]  

Yes Adam, Zooropa was indeed the last great album that U2 ever made. In fact, apart from a couple of singles like Beautiful Day, it was the last good thing they ever did. And that was a long, long time ago.

7 Worlds Collide new [re: beatled]  

Fans of Wilco, Radiohead, Crowded House and Johnny Marr should be aware that key members have been recording at Neil Finn's studio in Auckland, New Zealand.

According to reports, all three studios were functioning at once and new collaborations were being borne by the hour. As of Jan 4, twenty five songs had been recorded and more recording was scheduled for the rest of that week. Former Bowie band member and multi instrumentalist Lisa Germano is also among them.

Q magazine is stating that the resulting album will be out in April.

Bat For Lashes new [re: SoulLoveChild]  

Has anyone heard any Bat For Lashes?

Her second album (a follow up to her Mercury prize nominated debut) is due April 6.

Someone has just pointed out this atmospheric duet with Scott Walker - apparently the closing track of the album.

Re: Bat For Lashes new [re: looking glass]  

Adam, you can listen to some more here. She's a bit like the young Sinaed.

While you're over there (myspace), check out young Melbourne band Luluc. More folky than Bats but this girl has an incredible voice.

Excellent new [re: looking glass]  

I'll put that on the shopping list!

Now here's a curio for this year........



Iggy Pop will release a jazz album.

‘Preliminaires’ started when Iggy was asked to write the music for a documentary about French author Michel Houellebecq. It is based on his book ‘The Possibility of an Island’.

“As I looked at footage of Michel and re-read the book, which I did with intense pleasure when it came out, in my mind, I created music that would have been the music that I would hear in my soul when I read this book," Pop says in a video to announce the album.

"At one point, I just got sick of idiot thugs with guitars banging out crappy music," Iggy says. "I was starting to listen to a lot of New Orleans-era Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton type of jazz, and I've always loved quieter ballads."

‘Preliminaires’ will feature seven tracks, one which Iggy will sing in French.

It will be released in May.
