plus, the end of the week was spent fine-tuning my new single, which can be listened to here: https://theilk1.bandcamp.com/album/brigg-fair-single It could only really come out on the 5th of August.


I always enjoy reading what you've been listening to so I was intrigued as to what sort of music you would make. I'm not sure what I was expecting but it wasn't this. I was expecting it to be good though whatever it was and I wasn't disappointed. The first track especially is absolutely fabulous.



Thanks for listening. It was a last minute decision to put it out as a single, but the rest of the album still needs a bit of work and it seemed a shame not to put it out on the date mentioned in the lyrics. The other track is still a work in progress, but I always believe in including a 'b-side' and it was the best fit.

I may detect a smidgen of Cardiacsness in the b-side :)

Completely unintentional, but a smidgen of Cardiacsness can never be a bad thing.

Motorpsycho – The Tower. New double album from Norway’s most prolific band. Everyone seemed to like their last one (Here Be Monsters), which I thought was a bit meh, but this really is an absolute monster, a brilliant collection of expansive hard prog and stoner psych that deserves to be one of the albums of the year (but given Motorpsycho’s profile in this country, probably won’t be).

Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band – Dreaming In The Non-Dream. Talking of which, here’s another album of ‘widescreen art rock’ (as it says on CF’s Bandcamp page), not as ambitious as the Motorpsycho, but in the same ballpark: https://chrisforsyth1.bandcamp.com/album/dreaming-in-the-non-dream

A Year In The Country – Undercurrents. Compelling but bleak electronica and drones from pastoral hauntology guy. Interesting, but you wouldn’t want to visit too much: https://ayearinthecountry.bandcamp.com/album/undercurrents

Ufomammut – 8. Nearly 50 minutes of non-stop cosmic metal bludgeon, pretty intense: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNuOfxL6afE

Bark Psychosis – Hex / ‘Scum’. Revisiting Hex again – still don’t like the vocals, but maybe I was a little harsh the other week. ‘Scum’ still sounds astonishing, one of the greatest recordings of the 1990s – honestly, if you’re a Talk Talk fan and you’ve never heard this, you need to click on this link right now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MiuqyWVQ44

Terje Rypdal – Bleak House. TR’s first solo album I think, navigating a way between trad and more exploratory guitar jazz, but already pointing to the future: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=isHgUDbkbYg

Sounds great, but how da fuq have you heard this already? I normally have my ways but all of them have drawn a blank on this. Are you secretly in the band, dude? :)
