  1. I loved a lot of the lyrics in Be More Kind album. Felt like he summed up how I felt about what was going on in politics at the moment. Particularly loved the line "Don't go mistaking your house burning down for the dawn" But yeah definitely think his earlier albums are his best work.
  2. The only album I've absolutely loved this year is Lizzo - Cuz I love you. And generally I can't be bothered with pop music so that's pretty left field for me. Quite liked Mattiel, Deerhunter and Brittany Howard's albums. Enjoyed the singles from the Specials, Comet is Coming, Sharon Van Etten, Fontaines DC, Kishi Bashi, Anna Meredith and the Who's new albums, but never really got into the albums as a whole. Enjoying Michael Kiwanuka's album, but it still feels a bit to fresh for me to be able to evaluate it properly. And still not sure what to make of the Vampire Weekend album, at the very least would have to say it's interesting. As a fan of Frank Turner and Weezer I was pretty underwhelmed by both their albums. Also fail to understand why Charli XCX and Lana del Rey are so critically acclaimed. Listened to them after seeing them in lots of album of the year lists and for me they seem very bland.
  3. I used to be a big Frank Turner fan, but only gave No Man's Land a couple of listens as I found it a bit twee. That was despite listening to all the podcasts he made about the people that inspired the songs. Is it worth giving another shot? If nothing else I'm glad the album at least made me aware of Sister Rosetta Tharpe.
  4. I hope you're right. I'd really like to hear the new album first before I decide if I want to spend so much to see them.
  5. The last time I saw the Who in Glasgow, it was all seating, but I don't think a single person sat down during the duration of the show.
  6. I've got an email today saying if I pre order the new Who album I can get pre access to the sale for their new tour. How quickly do you think the Who tour will sell out? I'm conflicted as I've seen the Who post Moon and the Ox a few times and thought they were brilliant every time (sadly too young to have seen the original line up). But tickets start at £73 which is pretty steep. And I don't know if I'll like the new album or not, really it's their music from the late 60s and early 70s I love. Also got an email offering me presale to Greenday, Fallout Boy and Weezer tour. Which I'd so go to if it didn't clash with Glasto and I'm still tempted to buy tickets in case I don't get Glasto tickets. Pretty sure I could sell them if it turns out I can't go.
  7. I wouldn't mind that as long as it doesn't mean a massive hike in pricing and there was a way to request being camped near your friends or in a specific area. The current pre-erected tents seem ridiculously over priced.
  8. I'm a Frank Turner fan, but can't get excited about this new album. The songs I've heard sound like traditional folk and lack the energy I like in his music. The podcast he's recorded about the women that inspired the songs is fairly interesting though: https://open.spotify.com/show/2saiAextsiJkrJoRVfSZ2k
  9. When you start looking for it, it's amazing how many videos of Lizzo's early bands you can find with only a few hundred views
  10. I like her cover of Empire State of Mind on the flute. Also if you look at the videos she favourited at the time, there is a video of her in a rap battle: And there is a video someone in the audience filmed of one of the gigs for a band she was in. It's so dark you can barely make anything out, but sound is surprisingly decent: Just went down a Lizzo wormhole and found an old facebook page for Ellypseas which has a few cool pics of Lizzo from the time:
  11. Can't remember how I discovered Kishi Bashi, but he's a violinist that creates interesting experimental pop. Just got an email from Spotify to alert me of artists I listen to that are playing near me and it turns out he has just announced a European tour.
  12. Brilliant. She's such a star.
  13. That's a pretty interesting song. Hell of a lot going on, feels like it could be 3 or 4 songs. Not really listened to Squid before, but might start now. Like that.
  14. Incubus are still touring. They were so much more interesting than the other bands from the nu metal scene with lots of funky baselines & experimental elements to their songs. Not sure if they are mainstream enough for the slot, but would be an interesting booking that I'd definitely go along to.
  15. Incubus are still touring (can't find any evidence of them ever playing) Not sure how big a crowd they draw but think it could be an interesting booking
