|Ali's 2013: January|
I couldn't find the time nor the motivation to make a proper 2012 list. I'm sure you're all devastated, so by way of consolation here are my 10 favourite records of the past month, in no particular order. What have been your favourites?
The Island Come True
All hail Lord Moffat! Best album yet from the former Arab Strap singer/mumbler's abstract electronic solo project.
Incendiary hardcore from Ireland. Reminds me of Gallows' Orchestra Of Wolves.
|3||I Am Kloot|
Let It All In
A real slow burner that'll strike a chord if you're into slow burners like The National, Wilco or fellow Mancs Elbow.
We Are The 21st Century Ambassadors...
I've not really been impressed with Foxygen until this point, but this record is filled with classic pop songwriting.
Berberian Sound Studio
A atmospheric and unsettling soundtrack to Peter Strickland's film of the same name. Great stuff.
I enjoyed this a lot more than Live.Love.ASAP. The Skrillex collaboration is shite though.
No Selfish Heart
Miserable Scottish folk music with an awesome baritone. What's not to love?! His main occupation, The Phantom Band are really great too.
Really lovely folk/dream pop, well worth a listen if you're into Youth Lagoon, Bon Iver etc.
Another Bad Religion album. Another good Bad Religion album. Take it or leave it.
Conor O'Brien still sounds frighteningly like Conor Oberst, but he's a good enough songwriter to get away with it. 'Nothing Arrived' in particular is magnificent.
|i've only heard ttng, pissed jeans, peeple watchin, and the underachievers. all were good except ttng, which is a bummer, because i enjoyed their previous LP.|
i have new wooh da kid and joe budden tapes to listen to today at some point doe
|oh yeah i forgot about the new pusha t and soul search, those were good too. and ducktails, that was bad|
|New Pissed Jeans? I didn't know it was coming out.|
|my favourites are in my list. take a look.|
|2 and 8 seem really awesome.|
|I've been meaning to get 3 for ages|
|I've been digging the new And So I Watch You From Afar album, also Frightened Rabbit but that's a Feb. 4th release date I think|
