Half-term, so not much...

Spaceship – A Prospect Of Loughton Brook. This is a proper deep listening experience, sound-processed field recordings of a stream’s journey through Epping Forest, augmented by simple piano and synth. Reminded me a bit of Jon Brooks’ excellent Autres Directions, which similarly uses environmental sounds as the basis for its tracks, but this is rawer and stranger: http://forged-river.com/album/a-prospect-of-loughton-brook

Woods – Love Is Love

Wire – Pink Flag. A band I’ve never really got to grips with or even listened to properly, despite having various things by them. Funny album this, sounds like it’s coming from a minimal art rock background, while already parodying the 1-2-3-4 ramalama of the Ramones. Some of the tracks are basic youth club thrash, but then you get something urgent and weird like ‘Reuters’ or the brilliant condensed funk of ‘Lowdown’, probably my favourite Wire track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6Ytde6tmkQ (BTW, does it remind anybody else of ‘Another Brick In The Wall’?)

Golem – Orion Awakes

Alice Coltrane - The Ecstatic Music of...
This is gorgeous, but not quite what I was expecting. I need to spend more time with it I think.

Cat Stevens - Foreigner
Thanks to Moth for reminding me of this.

Thin Lizzy - Black Rose

Peter Gabriel - 2
For some reason I've always gone for 1 or 3, and neglected this one. I'm making up for lost time with it!


Electric Moon - Stardust Rituals
Can't stop playing this, it's tremendous.

Cobra Family Picnic - Magnetic Anomaly
Another cracker from Cardinal Fuzz. Absolutely top slab of psych.

Steely Dan - Katy Lied

White Hills - Stop Mute Defeat
Wow! This is a bit of a suprise, and a good one at that. White Hills have found a new thing for their sound - more electronic, without losing their heavy guitar sound.

Vert:X - From Now To Now
Sublime spacerocking album, and a lovely marbled green vinyl too!

Richard Dawson - Peasant. Getting some good reviews e.g. Guardian, Quietus. Well deserved, it's original, interesting, challenging and with great tunes too. Heads up to the producer Sam Grant who has produced a lot of good Newcastle underground music recently - Blown Out, Bong and Pigs Pigs Pigs (he's guitarist for the latter).

Hey Colossus - The Guillotine. Really good, heavy post-punk/metal 3 guitar attack. With great riffs and some more melodic quieter moments. Nik Turner blasts some alto sax on one of the tracks.

GAS - Narkopop. Excellent new album from Wolfgang Voigt, revisiting his 90s early 00s GAS project. Deep forest orchestral techno!

Been listening these last couple of weeks to the last few Faust albums (bought on download) - this year's Fresh Air, Just Us and Something Dirty. Really enjoying them.

Teleplasmiste - Frequency is the New Ecstasy. Really good dark ambient album from Mark Pilkington and Michael York. The sticker talks of a lineage of Tangerine Dream through to Coil and that's about right. You could probably add Slomo to that as well. I prefer Slomo's Transits from earlier this year but the two are rather marvellous I think.

I'm sure I listened to a few things from the archive but can't remember past more great 2017 music!

Main replays this week were Cabaret Voltaire The Covenant, The Sword & The Arm of the Lord (1985) and The Drain Train (1986). The first one from the mid-80s Virgin period, sharply tooled electro that misses the creeping dread of their early stuff but is still decent. A bit overlong but I can live with that. The second, an EP from 1986, is less compelling and prefaces their flirtation with pop on Parlophone. Okay but hardly essential listening.
