Albums and New Music of 2017


#81

The new Slowdive album (their first in 22 years) is really lovely stuff altogether. Have given it 4 (FOUR) spins this week.


#82

This is a very nice nice record. Heavily indebted to the great Sun Ra ad you might expect from the band name.


#83

Ty Segall.

Produced by Albini.


#84

#85

Mate,

Would you say that Can are the greatest band ever?


#86

I wouldn’t say that but I would say that the run of albums from Ege Bamyasi to Tago Mago to Future Days is as good as exists in the entire canon of popular music.


#87

Funny I was going to mention their run of albums.

I love Monster Movie, their debut, and while Soundtracks is a bit fragmented it still has great moments.

So for me, Monster Movie through to Future Days (5 albums) is the best run of albums there ever has been.


#88

Sorry - Ege Basyami came after Tago Mago.


#89

New Nick Hoppner is massssssivvveeeeee…


#90

I’m just about to listen to Ryan Adam’s latest effort, guys - I haven’t heard anything about it - Hopefully it’s a return to form…


#91

Thinly veiled I’m trendy with a cool taste in music


#92

What? Ryan hasn’t produced a good album in a number of years, mate.


#93

Let me know if there’s anything as good as Summer of 69 on it.


#94

Thinly veiled I’m looking for kudos for sticking with him


#95

I haven’t stuck with him at all, I said I hoped it was a return to past glories as he’s been shit - try keep up, mate.


#96

Will do.


#97

Thinly veiled switcheroo


#98

Mate, this is the new music of 2017 thread - I don’t think you’ve grasped that.


#99

Sweep sweep


#100

No, it’s all very transparent if you follow the audit trail … oh wait…
