  1. All I want is AM7 However I can’t wait for Dawn FM tonight.

  3. Nao, Blu, Westside Gunn and The Lathums. It’s been a good release day.
  4. Jungle sounding good so far Looking forward to getting stuck into the new Alchemist/Boldy James LP aswell
  5. Only just got round to it and its lovely. Perfect follow-up to KD1
  6. Album 1 Album Almost Free by Fidlar Tracklist 1. Get Off My Rock 2. Can't You See 3. By Myself 4. Flake 5. Alcohol 6. Almost Free 7. Scam Likely 8. Called You Twice (feat. K.Flay) 9. Nuke 10. Too Real 11. Kick 12. Thought. Mouth 13. Goods Times Are Over Picked by @foolee "I’ve been thinking about what album to pick for a while and had quite a few different options to choose from but I thought I’d go for something that I discovered through eFestivals. I can’t remember exactly when this was but it would’ve been 6 or more years ago and I’ve been a big fan ever since. FIDLAR are a fairly small skater punk band from California and hugely underrated. I wanted to pick a genre we've not heard in album club and something that’s hopefully different/new for a few of you. I’ve gone for their most recent album which is their 3rd record. Enjoy!" Questions: Have you heard them before? What did you think? Will you listen them again? Would you watch them at a festival? Rating: Album 2 Album Those Who Throw Objects at The Crocodiles Will be Asked to Retrieve Them by Bruno Pernadas Tracklist 1. Poem (1) 2. Spaceway 70 3. Probem Number 6 4. Valley in the Ocean 5. Anywhere in Spacetime 6. Poem (2) 7. Because It's Hard to Develop That Capacity on You... 8. Galaxy 9. Ya Ya Breathe 10. Lachrymose Picked by @lessthanwill1 "I have been recommending this album to anyone who will listen for the last few years. The music is excellent and is endlessly creative. It’s got male and female vocals working in tandem. It’s jazzy/lounge rock at heart but it’s not aimless. There are tons of interesting instruments (lots of flutes and even a flugelhorn!) and some really interesting Asian-music influences as well. It’s one of my favourite ever albums. My favourite song is Ya Ya Breathe. That album title as well!?" Questions: Was the music what you expected based on the album title? What was your favourite song? Will you check out more of their songs? They have a new single out - and it’s great!

    RIP DMX

    RIP, one of the greatest.
  8. Going to give this another week as it was a bit quiet last week with Easter etc!
  9. Starting with Sevdaliza now, interesting sound. For some reason the Spotify album cover is completely different.
  10. Album 1 Album Ison by Sevdaliza Tracklist 1. Shahmaran 2. Libertine 3. Marilyn Monroe 4. Hubris 5. Amandine Insensible 6. Hero 7. Scarlette 8. Bluecid 9. Loves Way 10. Human 11. Do You Feel Real 12. The Language of Limbo 13. Replaceable 14. Grace 15. When I Reside 16. Angel 17. Hear My Pain Heal Picked by @ghandi "I was a great fan of the trip hop era, particularly ' Portishead', that whole Bristol scene was amazing. When I first heard Sevdaliza it was from a backing track to a dance performance I'd seen. I just had to know who it was. Hooked ever since. Influences from everywhere, given her heritage. It's dark and a bit Noir, and possibly a bit long, but that's just her, her new album is the same, but I prefer this." Album 2 Album Hand.Cannot.Erase by Steven Wilson Tracklist 1. First Regret / 3 Years Older 2. Hand Cannot Erase 3. Perfect Life 4. Routine (feat. Tenet Tayeb) 5. Home Invasion / Regret #9 6. Translence 7. Ancestral 8. Happy Returns / Ascendant Here on... Picked by @maelzoid "I picked this for two main reasons. Firstly, I think it is the best album released in the last decade (the teens?) and secondly, it seems different enough in style to all the previous albums chosen. Steven Wilson is a figure who looms large in the world of Prog Rock, but seems to go by unnoticed outside it, described by someone as “British Rock’s most popular artist you’ve never heard of.” Inspired by the tragic true story of Joyce Vincent (link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joyce_Vincent), this concept album is very much prog, but not in a noodling Yes kind of way. There’s room for concise rock songs, gentle folk interludes, spoken word sections and at least one creamy moog solo. I highly recommend watching the heart-breaking video for Routine (link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sh5mWzKlhQY)" The Back Catalogue Last Week The Jukebox Now That's What I Call eFest Album Club! ---------- Welcome to Week 7 of Album Club!

  11. The Beths is really quite charming.
  12. Just started with the Silversun Pickups album and I'm pleasantly surprised because from the album cover I expected this to be a bit heavier than it is. Not bad so far.
  13. Album 1 Album Carnavas by Silversun Pickups Tracklist 1. Melatonin 2. Well Thought Out Twinkles 3. Checkered Floor 4. Little Lover’s So Polite 5. Future Foe Scenarios 6. Waste It On 7. Lazy Eye 8. Rusted Wheel 9. Dream at Tempo 119 10. Three Seed 11. Common Reactor Picked by @a6l6e6x "For a long time in my late teens/early 20s I only really listened to really heavy music with very limited exceptions, this band was one of those exceptions I've always found Silversun Pickups to be criminally under-rated and they are very rarely found on UK shores, unfortunately I have never managed to catch them live but I've watched a couple of performances and they look superb so Emily, if you're reading this please book them for the farm. If you are new to the band and like what you hear I absolutely encourage further investigation, they are a consistently great band for me bar the 2019 release which was a bit of a let down" Questions I would ask are: Have you listened to Silversun Pickups before and overall thoughts? Will you investigate them further? Would you watch at a festival? Rating out of 5: Album 2 Album Jump Rope Gazers by The Beths Tracklist 1. I’m Not Getting Excited 2. Dying to Believe 3. Jump Rope Gazers 4. Acrid 5. Do You Want Me Now 6. Out of Sight 7. Don’t Go Away 8. Mars, the God of War 9. You Are a Beam of Light 10. Just Shy of Sure Picked by @John the Moth "So what’s the story? The first and longest NZ lockdown ended last June (we’ve had 3 more since), and shortly thereafter my mate messaged me ‘I’ve bought tickets to see The Beths!’. Having only been casually aware of the band I popped them on Spotify, and 30 seconds in to track 1 I popped them off again... and bought tickets myself! That’s how they came to be my first post lockdown gig. I’ve always been a sucker for female led indie pop, and this slice of jingly jangly heaven instantly resonated with me. Think Sleeper, think Echobelly, think one of my all time favourites The Sundays (shit, maybe I should go with ‘Reading, Writing and Arithmetic’.... erm?). Where was I? Oh yeah...well it turned out that gig was intended as the launch party for this album. Originally pencilled in as an intimate affair, the lack of touring bands saw it escalate to a full blown sold out show at an academy sized venue. And what a show it was. The album chock full of great tracks, no filler at all, I’ll not discuss at length I’ll let you find out for yourselves. Unpretentious, joyous, mature and assured pure pop... it brings the party, I hope you enjoy" ---------- The Back Catalogue Last Week The Jukebox Now That's What I Call eFest Album Club! ---------- Welcome to Week 6 of Album Club! Apologies for the late start, next week will start at a more normal time on Monday.
  14. Both get a 4/5 for me this week. Lane 8 is right up my street and I might even end up buying it further down the line. Perfect summer music. The Zombies took a while but it is lovely, something different for me.
  15. It's late but the Zombies album is finally clicking
