Cheers all, this has given me plenty to work through!  Ought, MGMT and Hookworms are getting a fair bit of play. CSH is OK but not pulling me back in for repeated listens.

I get the quality of Hailu Mergia, but it's just not doing much for me at the moment.  Might try listening to it under different conditions not really one to listen to at work .

The rest are in the queue!

If you're still hungry after all that, I think Dream Wife's debut is my album of the year so far. Although I also really love Tune-Yard's latest. And Django Django's. And Shame's. And Sunflower's. And The Lovely Egg's. And The Go! Team's. 

Done alright so far this year ahah.

The new Preoccupations album is out on Friday and is probably worth a listen based on the other stuff you're enjoying.

So everyone's favourite bassist, yes Dougie from McFly, has created a sort of Post punk band with some mates, it's actually not that bad although I doubt I'll ever go back to it.

Potential AOTY here for me (if you couldnt have already guessed):

Still don't like Paris, and Midnight is pretty weak too but the rest of this album is great imo

You can't have heard the new Young Fathers album, then.

First listen to ‘I’ll be Your Girl’ by The Decemberists. Some beautiful songs and a relief after hearing a couple of negative Twitter comments ref the more electronic sound this time around. I’ve just put it straight back on.....think I’m gonna like this one and can’t wait to see them in November.

new Young Fathers is proper good, yeah. much less of a 'bangers' kind of thing but all very very good. wish I could go see them in Bristol next week but train prices aren't looking nice so I'm shut out. awful.

New pop platter from Colin Portland and his Decemberists not quite as full of painful New Order pastiches as initially feared.

Anyone else tried Nakhane's album You Will Not Die?  Loving that at the moment

Not new music, but this video is new and relates to music and it's made my fucking year.

DMC is my favourite person alive. Also first time I've seen anybody be completely unfazed by Nardwuar and just continue being themselves, which is because DMC can only be 100% DMC 100% of the time.

New Unknown Mortal Orchestra is ‘ite, although doesn’t really have all the ear worm choruses that Multi Love did, and the guys voice really grates on me this time around for some reason - seems really low in the mix and processed (moreso than usual). Not the car crash the two pre-release tracks suggested it might be and maybe it’ll get better with repeated listens but aye, not grabbing me too much.

My vault package version of Jack White's new album has arrived a few days early. 

I know you lot are all crapping over it but I'm still excited!

I saw it had leaked yesterday but decided to just wait till it was on Spotify on Friday, interested to hear people's thoughts on it. The Quietus weren't very impressed but they do just decide to shit on albums sometimes (makes a decent read most the time, even if I disagree with it). I've actually enjoyed all the songs so far but I'm not expecting it to make it in to many AOTY lists.

All my fellow White Stripes nerds on the Little Room Forum are saying the tracks flow better as an album. 

I'll be listening tonight, might drop some opinions on here after a third listen.

The Magic Gang's debut effort is out now.  Thoroughly enjoyable on first listen.

Just listening to Cocoa Sugar now. This is excellent. Can't say I ever really clicked with their last album and I'd sort of lost interest but this has dragged me right back.

Wasn't that keen on Cocoa Sugar really. It's either that it simply wasn't as good for me or I've just grown used to what they do and it's harder to be wowed by it.

Voidz album has leaked btw. I'll just wait until it releases and I can listen on Spotify but I'm sure some of you will be interested.
