I have been listening to Mercury Rev's Deserters Songs lately which has just been reissued with additional tracks, I dont have the reissue but the original is a beautiful album and well worth checking out.
A more recent record that I have been listening to is Cats Eyes ( Faris from The Horrors and Canadian opera singer Rachel Zeffira) check out a couple of their tracks that I am loving! - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSXKWQz_R-Q and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjtDrIin1qw
I would recommend giving The Crookes a try. Their debut album recently came out and I think a few of you guys would like it! have a listen to this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlsxt6nLzO0
My favourite album at the moment is Miles Kane's debut solo effort and I would recommend checking that one out as well.
One final recommendation from me would be the Golden Silvers album. They only put one out but it's a pop gem! I hadn't listened to it much since it came out a couple of years ago but stumbled upon it recently and it's a great record that didn't catch on as it should have. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ns9o1gEhaE8
On the gig front I couldn't get to see Anna Calvi play in town on 10th which I was a bit gutted about, did anyone get to see it?
Also Liverpool Sound City was on recently and I would be interested to hear the opinions of those who managed to check it out?
Would also like to hear any opinions on Kate Bush as she is not someone I am too familiar with but on the back of her reputation and recent releases (or re-releases) I feel now may be the time to check her work out.
Any Beastie Boys fans? What are your thoughts on their new record?
Just a few days no until the new Arctic Monkeys LP is out and I am sure you guys are as excited as me! It comes at the perfect time for me and I am sure it will become the soundtrack for my holidays!
A lot of talk about whether the record will bear similarities to any of their previous ones. Personally Humbug is my favourite but I know that it was a bridge too far for some people. From what I have heard so far it sounds like a winner!
