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
