    2018 New Music

    Ok, based on my Last.FM account (which isn't all encompassing), the most listened to albums released in 2018 are: Isolation Tranquility Base Dirty Computer Ye Daytona Cocoa Sugar No Shame Ruins Singularity Babelsgerg Special shout outs to Saturation III and Ctrl which I only got into this year.

    2018 New Music

    Listened to loads more new stuff this year - probably a bit too early for lists but I already cannot see past Kali Uchis for album of the year. Whilst it's production and guest list list ticks all the boxes for the chin strokers, it's just a cracking album of pop, soul and RnB.

    My heart did a flutter there when my phone went off and it was a Twitter notification from Secret Glasto

    2019 Headliners

    Loved TWOD when they were early doors at the Pyramid a few years back - sound was crystal clear. They were dull when I saw them in April just gone though, very little crowd interaction, lots of 5 minute feedback intro's (could have fit a few more songs in) - generally underwhelming.

    2019 Headliners

    I saw him at the local enormodome and enjoyed the gig. Not convinced anyone over the age of 35 needs to hear either of them sing Wonderwall, DLBIA, Half the World Away and the like again mind, but hey ho. I preferred the solo tracks to be fair, Dead in the Water was fantastic.

    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    I was blown away by the setup and performance on this tour, and I’d class myself as barely a Talking Heads fan, never mind his solo stuff. That Monae cover at the end is immense. Seriously considering getting tickets for Leeds.

    2019 Possibilities (Non-Headliner)

    Intergalactic Super 7's is a peach of a greatest hits. Where do we reckon SZA would play if she's about and sorted her voice out by 2018? Is she even a fit for the festival?

    Ash headlined JP a while ago - I'd be surprised to see them bumped up to t'Other. Certainly worth a shout on the JP though.

    2019 Possibilities (Non-Headliner)

    He’s selling out Wembley and Old Trafford no problems without the publicity though, and he doesn’t seem to have any appetite to release new music. You’re probably right about it being his level, just think it’s really unlikely that he needs to do it. Just looking at his recent tours, he seems to have a residency at Madison Square Garden, played there every month since 2014!! Dolly and Lionel haven’t got that sort of regular payday to fall back on.

    He’s notoriously a lazy sod isn’t he? Hence why we get one off gigs at Wembley Stadium and LCCC. Whereas Lionel and Dolly regularly do the arena circuit. I’d take him in a heartbeat - just seems very unlikely he’d do it for the comparative buttons he’d receive for it.

    Is he too big for legends? Scarcity of shows and subsequent sizes of venues when he does play make it difficult to gauge his level.

    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    No 2nd date for Monae in Manchester? Upped her profile in this country it seems, I don't even think her 2014 date for the Academy sold out?

    Given the new Gruff Rhys and Lily Allen albums a once over while waiting for the Kanye/Cudi effort. Enjoyed both.

    Ezra Furman’s rescheduled gigs has lead him to adding a rare date up here. Splendid.
