  1. 2018 New Music

    Two Janelle tunes are right rippers, not sure if she's upped her game though, Electric Lady was a belting album. Live is where she really hits the spot though, fingers crossed she wants to get back on the road. She's still criminally underrated here and stateside!!

    Had a grim old time listening to that Migos album. A few wobbles aside, I've generally found to enjoy new hip-hop as the years have gone on but the whole trap/mumble genre is the point where I'm starting to feel my age.
  3. What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    Coachella and Deer Shed booked this year. Outside possibility of a day to either Blue Dot, Parklife or World Island.
  4. Elton John

    Eh? He's doing 300+ dates in the next couple of years. You don't put those in your diary if you're not up to it!! There's absolutely no reason at all as to why he shouldn't headline.
  5. Elton John

    It would be a shame if he didn’t. Either headliner or legend slot would go down well. That list of acts that are of a certain demographic appeal is getting smaller, I thought they’d pull out the stops.
  6. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    £55 for Gregory Porter? Jesus.
  7. 2018 New Music

    Off to see them soon. To be honest, I’ve never been that enamoured with them on record, their records always seem badly produced. Live they’ve always delivered the goods. Debut album is where I would start. Currently playing Saturation III to death at the moment. They’re a bit rough around the edges but there’s a ton of energy in the record. Oddly enough they remind me of Len! Ive a feeling I’ll be bored of it in a couple of weeks but I’ll enjoy them while it lasts.
  8. Talking Heads

    Hasn’t he got some sort of WiFi setup so that his band are ‘leadless’. Sure I read that somewhere. I know little of his solo stuff but I’ll be seeing him this year so will have to get stuck in and give him a listen.
  9. Album of the Year 2017

    Everyday Robots is rank. I'd looked forward to a solo album from Albarn for years and was left terribly disappointed upon its release. It's soulless. Humanz certainly tails off but it's first half is ace. Strobelite is the best song he's done in ages. IMO!
  10. 2017 on Spotify

    I miss Spotify but I've gone all in on Apple Music now and there's no turning back. Doesn't look as if Apple are doing something similar. At least Last.FM is now scrobbling what I listen to again.
  11. Album of the Year 2017

    Humanz is better than Everyday Robots and The Magic Whip.
  12. Album of the Year 2017

    We really putting reissues in these lists? Howay man, play the game. Anyway: Sleep Well Beast Yesterdays Gone Colors Adios, Senòr Pussycat Humanz in that order.
  13. Gorillaz

    While I don’t think it’ll be sitting atop my AOTY list, I still think it’s a fairly decent listen. Weaker than the last couple of Gorillaz albums and that last Blur, but better than Everyday Robots!! Got a lot of love for that last De La Soul album as well, Memory Of in particular is a doozy…. drew the line at the track with Justin Hawkins mind!
  14. Kanye west confirmed

    Anybody else had a listen to the Dissect podcast which is breaking down MBDTF track by track? I got onto it a couple of weeks ago and binge-listened to it over a day or so. Really interesting (though admittedly nerdy and obsessive).
  15. 2017 New Music Thread

    Can't really argue with that. It's better than anything since American Gangster but still far short of former glories.
