  1. I’ve always hated Wellington boots. Only ever done Glastonbury in DMs or trail running shoes. BUT - just this very evening, before I’d even seen this thread - I tried on a pair of Le Chameau boots. OMG. Game changer! I’ve never worn anything so comfortable. You totally forget you have boots on.
  2. Has anyone had any experience of Horizons Music. I was looking for a copy of the Fontaine’s DC Live at Kilmainham Gaol on vinyl. Sold out everywhere else. But not there. I was about to click on submit on my order but suddenly something made me have second thoughts. I checked online and there seems to be a shed load of negative reviews. But… they’re the only retailer stocking it. What do people think? Should I go for it?
  3. Little Simz - SIMBI Bicep - Isles For Those I Love - For Those I Love Sault - Nine Nick Cave & Warren Ellis - Carnage
  4. 1) Little Simz - SIMBI 2) Easy Life - Life's a Beach 3) Moullinex - Requiem for Empathy 4) UNKLE - Ronin I 5) Bicep - Isles 6) Sault - Nine 7) Jungle - Loving in Stereo 8) Nick Cave - Carnage 9) Everyone You Know - Just for the times 10) Wax Tailor - The shadow of their suns almost making it were albums by CHVRCHES, Viagra Boys, Joel Culpepper, London Grammar and Black Country New Road
  5. Ignore this. I should have scrolled down first
  6. Is this where we post our own top ten albums of the year? Or is it a thread about other, published AOTYs
  7. I was quite indifferent to BCNR. Thought they were OK but slightly annoying. And then I saw them live. They’re fantastic live!
  8. So is it too late to put mine? 1) sometimes I might be introvert - little Simz 2) heavy elevator- Hamish hawk 3) lonely man - boztown.
  9. I thought we normally had until the following Thursday after the end of the month. Have I got that wrong?
  10. 1 Apricots - Bicep 2 Baxter (These Are My Friends) - Fred Again, Baxter Dury 3 Mohan - Synapson
  11. Wasn’t it appalling? With a near-two year hiatus, this will be a first festival experience for a number of youngsters. It might possibly have put them off for life!
  12. Loving the Jungle album. But… I do think there is a bit of a Saulty taste to some of the tracks. The question is, do I think that because it really has, or do I think that because I know theres a connection (and, Inflow does get name checked on some of the tracks). Anyway - saw them in Kingston last night. Absolutely fabulous. Can’t wait for the Brixton shows.
  13. Wow. Just, …wow. I know we’ve all heard a million covid-excuses and we’re we’re all a bit cynical, but I work in the events industry and what Latitude pulled off this weekend with the current constraints was pretty fucking miraculous. Yes there were fewer food and drink concessions, so you had to wait a bit. Did that really make it a lousy festival? Rather than going back to 2019 and beyond, try comparing Latitude 2021 with Latitude 2020. See how far you get there
  14. Anyone know when the Latitude app is likely to show stage times?
  15. That Moby album is amazing. It’s a Best of… album and yet it’s all new. Sitting here in the Lisbon sunshine with a glass of wine totally overcome by this record.
  16. Santigold was going to play West Holt’s about three years ago and then pulled out suddenly. Anyone know why? And is she ever going to release anything again?
  17. Booked my tickets for this. I’m not a massive fan or anything. They’re OK. Better than OK. I quite like them. But they’re a big band to be playing a small venue like Dingwalls. 500 people. Packed together. It’s going to be fantastic…! In fact, even if I hated them I’d be counting off the days with excitement.
  18. It’s a bit like waiting to find out which countries are on the green list…
  19. Someone has just introduced me to Second Life by Dawn Richard. Am I right in saying I have until midnight to change my mind? Listening to it now. And enjoying it so far, so might change my mind.
  20. 1) Fred Again - Actual Life (April 14 - December 17 2020) 2) Lake Haze - Sun Rising on Concrete Landscapes 3) London Grammar - Californian Soil
  21. ill check that out. if you're a kora fan, also release this month is a fabulous album form Ballaké Sissoko.
  22. Ooh. I hope this is setting the scene for a new DJ Format album.
  23. The Courtyard is tiny (and a little bit shit, but I haven't really said that as we need to support our venues on the roadmap to recovery). Hasn't David Balfe been reading the efestivals album of the month thread? He's going to sell out both those nights in about five minutes.
  24. I am quite enjoying this. I am always a little unsure about such incredibly white people playing afrobeat, but I think this is Only if the mules came too!! Actually, other than Wayne Coyne's unicorn, have there been any other animal appearances at Glastonbury...?
