You really cant go wrong with Carl Craig's albums 'The Album Formerly Known as' (2005) and 'More Songs About Food and Revolutionary Art' (1997). The former is a remake of 'Landcruising' (1995). Some like the original better.

This veers more into electro but a lot of material in the Dreciya cannon is being repressed thanks to Clone records in Rotterdam.
Elecktroids 'Electroworld' (1995) is a personal fav. Also, all of the Drexciya 'Journey of the Deep Sea Dweller' collections are worth it.

This one's a little more recent but I highly recommend Convextion '2845' (2016). It's has a bit of dub in there but everything is still firmly rooted in the Detroit sound. Just check the album cover.

Ootori no Kuru Hi - The End of The World. Best of J. A. Caesar is in this double discs live album. It's available to be listened on Deezer. Actually, I first listened just after Nico Live In Tokyo and the shows have a similar eerie vibe.

I'm jelly bro. To me the platonic ideal of a dance track is Paperclip People's 'Throw'.

I need to cop the compilation that was repressed a few years ago.

A little bit of synthwave and chiptune, and some (good) EDM in the mix.

These concerts repeat many tracks, but I like them. The Opera from FF VI is different, they used English actors.

Only discovered Lukhash within the last few months. This has been on repeat since its release.

Listening to it now actually.

I bought everything from Falling Apart on wards.

Falling Apart and Glitch are really good. Ghosts is probably the weakest because of the vocals, but that is largely an opinion. I still enjoy it and it has the four songs from the 85 EP.

The Other Side and Better Than Reality are easily his best work. I can't get over how good BTR is.

You have a BC page?

Super early proto-Afrobeat. Only had a few records because he was murdered quite young.
It's uplifting and tragic at the same time. Just can't get enough.

I'm actually trying NOT to listen to new tracks by The Appleseed Cast as the new LP is on its way from Graveface. The bits I've heard sound good though.

Gearing up for HEAVY MTL fest where I am unbelievably stoked to see : Demolition Hammer, Slayer and Watain.

Also very much looking forward to seeing Clutch, Fu Manchu, Dopethrone and Municipal Waste.



Can't believe I'm actually about to see Watain perform, I'm basically flipping out just thinking about that. been wanting to see them live so bad but missed them the last 2 times they came here (in 2018 w/ Destroyer 666 and in 2015 w/Mayhem)

First two Roxy Music albums. For Your Pleasure in particular is absolutely amazing. They became significantly less interesting once Eno left.

Revisiting an old uncle-rock favourite. Image

Wait! Don't shoot, bitch! (・`W´・) Legitimately great hard rock record, bridging fiery NWOBHM melodicism and floorboard-rattling AC/DC stomp. Kicks ass from start to finish. Just the right layer of production, that is, minimal. Guitar and drum sound is balls-hard, and besides lots of yowling hedonistic ROCKIN', some of this stuff's intensity is unmistakably shmuppin as fuck. Image

Image

YEAH EXACTLY DR STONED :o IN ROCK N ROLL THERES NO SAFETY NET Image Image Meanwhile Mirror Mirror's eerily keening, lurching solo sounds like something outta frickin Splatterhouse Part 3. Hammering album closer No No No wouldn't be the least bit out of place seeing off Killers or Overkill.

Gravitated to this BITD because where I grew up, the radio was mad on Hootie & The Blowfish, Blues Traveler, Dave Matthews Band and other pseudo-folksy alterna-lite shite. I'm sure they're nice chaps and all, but sweet Jesus, the sheer milquetoast made me want to bite my own dick off and bleed to death. Still does!

RIP Steve Clark, cool cat even on subsequently syrupy, production-caked Leppard LPs. Those don't quite make me want to bite my own dick off, but they were also radio-popular and lame! Still, even there, Desert Song has another gem of his - bitterly burnt-out yet beautifully phrased. Could've come straight off Perfect Selection Dracula Battle. Dude was a good'un!

Playing it through 2.1 speakers lately (mere 320 kbps MP3, too), I feel somewhat humbled by the (mouthy as she might be) Azealia Banks' Broke with Expensive Taste album, for not having appreciated it quite enough in my times of listening to the music mostly via puny earphones.

Image

"Monolithic" is the word that comes to mind. The previous album benefitting THIS much from that frequency response, to my ears, was no other than Peter Gabriel's "Third".

Image

(By the way, could it be that we owe the sound of drums in much of nineteen-eighties' pop & rock music mostly to Phil Collins? Pretty natural to my generation of listeners, but I think it's period-specific, in hindsight.)

That Intruder song always reminds me of the mem-(o)-re film. Oddly, as I did not think much of it when watching some time ago (for a "cinematographic" reason - quite simply, I've a soft spot for Strange Days the movie and a hard time viewing someone else's supposed memories filmed from a third person perspective).
