    Man, isn't it annoying when someone posts album artwork without ANY indication at all at who it is?

    I know this is for albums in 2017, but this compilation released in 2010 that I've just Soulseeked is amazing.

    I like that one a lot more than the one you posted before. I will listen to a bit of her new album later and see. Her voice is very unusual, doesn't sound like is a kiwi (not that I know many kiwi singers), sounds German or even Irish at certain points. She reminds me a fair bit of Sibylle Baier.

    I guarantee you will like the last few tracks of the album Matty seeing as you loved the Julie Byrne album.

    Me. I love it as a piece.

    I might well have proposed to her at the End of the road if I didn't have a prior engagement stalking Courtney Marie.

    Don't imagine there will be much love for them in this thread but I actually really like Kasabians new album, For Crying Out Loud.



    One of the best songs they've ever produced IMO. Very surprised after their last effort 48:13 was utter pish.

    I'm addicted to the new Fleet Foxes record, I told myself I would delete it after a few listens and then wait for my pre-order to arrive, but I can't stop listening! For me it is a genuine masterpiece. Not to say it's better than Helplessness Blues (though it could be), but I can see why Robin is happiest with this one.

    And the more I listen the more I appreciate the shift in Robin's approach songwriting, melody etc. In a lot of ways it's the natural progression, Helplessness Blues is similar but different to their s/t debut and EP. Crack-Up feels like a more fully realised exploration of the kind of thing they first tried to do on The Plains / Bitter Dancer and particularly The Shrine / An Argument. I was listening to Joni Mitchell's Hissing of Summer Lawns the other day for the first time in a while, and it strikes me as a similar sort of transition from pastoral folk sort of stuff (Clouds, Blue, Ladies of the Canyon in Joni's case) to something equally brilliant but more musically complex, and perhaps a bit more challenging for 'casual' fans who are expecting the same. As I already said it feels extremely cohesive, most times I go to play the first song (which is fantastic) I've ended up listening to it full through (over ten times now). Lots of interesting influences on the record that Robin has talked about, Ethiopian Jazz music (there's a great sample of Tezeta by Mulatu Astatke), Moroccan Gnawa music, Pacific Island Vanuatu (water music) and even films, particularly the editing style of Nicolas Roeg as I mentioned before. The record is not as strange or as experimental as that makes it sound, but you can definitely see a diverse range of influences, including other things you'd probably expect like Astral Weeks (that definitely comes across). And the production is incredible, it sounds so rich and 'full'.

    Oh and @DomB I listened to the rest of Party, you are right I definitely like a few tracks on there. Still not completely sold on the voice haha, it is very strange at times, but I enjoyed a lot of it. The title track for one. I'm So Sorry is great as well, and there are a few others. I also wonder if 'What If Birds Aren't Singing They're Screaming' is from Herzog:

    Sometimes records on release take a while to get used to. Took me two years but now I love Sufjan Stevens album Carrie and Lowell. In fact it's one of the great albums of the decade, love it that much.

    Came across Will Stratton's Rosewood Almanac today and really enjoyed it, never heard of him before but I loved this. Right up my street, good folk-rock type stuff, with a few really nice songs. Some nice guitar playing too.

    Really liking this as well, Sam Amidon - The Following Mountain

    Another folk album but completely unlike the Will Stratton one, it's electric-folk in the vein of Tim Buckley, Roy Harper, Richard Thompson, Michael Chapman etc. though on the stranger side of things. Strong Irish folk influence, more so Appalachian traditional songs (which comes from Irish/British stuff of course) but with a lot of experimental stuff, free-jazz is another big element. Gets a little too weird at certain points, particularly with the vocals, but on the whole I'm a fan.

    James Vincent McMorrow - True Care

    I love his voice and really enjoyed his second album Post Tropical, so when I saw he dropped a surprise album today I was pleasantly surprised. It's pretty damn good too. It sees him go further away from his folky beginnings into more electronically-infused R&B stuff. His last album was solid too, but very minimalist in comparison to this which features more prominent synths and layering. Although it doesn't work every time, I enjoy that he's still trying to push his songwriting out further into more experimental territory. Also he's Irish which gives him extra marks.:lol:
