If Vaughan Williams is to your liking have a listen to the Charterhouse Suite originally written for piano and was later arranged for string ensemble. Couple of my university students are learning that just now for an upcoming recital. Beautiful music!

Not bought anything new for a few weeks now but that has given me some time to spin albums I bought earlier in the year - and all are sounding rather fine.

The Necks - Unfold

Ancestral Voices - Divinations

Pact Infernal - Infernality

Gnod - Just Say No... and the Temple of BBV collaboration

Slomo - Transits

Teleplasmiste - Frequency in the new ecstasy

Zu - Jhator

The Inward Circles - And right lines limit and close all bodies

The Bug vs Earth - Concrete Desert

Silver Eye – Goldfrapp
The closing track, Ocean, is a real killer with its heavy, almost industrial feel.

Damage & Joy – JAMC
A more enjoyable return than one could probably expect. All Things Pass is ace!

Ballad Of The Broken Seas – Isobel Campbell & Mark Lanegan
Includes a cover of Ramblin' Man but the highlight for me is False Husband.

Transmission - Death In Vegas
Disappointing on early listens but this has proved to be a real grower. Still a few momemnts that unsettle me for some reason!

Stranded – Roxy Music
I can't stop playing this 1973 Roxy Music LP at the moment. I know some folk don't rate it as highly as the first two with Eno aboard but it just gets better and better with age for me - and that opening Street Life intro still blows me away... Wow!! x

Modern Kosmology – Jane Weaver
Definitely one of my albums of the year so far.

Also...
Crossing The Red Sea... - The Adverts

Short Fuse – Akatombo

Inside Out – The Association

Sgt Peppers – The Beatles

1967 Sunshine Tomorrow - The Beach Boys

Loin Des Hommes- Nick Cave & Warren Ellis

Vampyr – Death & Vanilla

Transmission - Death In Vegas

Viva - La Dusseldorf

World Peace Is None Of Your Business – Morrissey

Mars Audiac Quintet – Stereolab
Miss Modular (EP) – Stereolab
Instant O In The Universe (EP) – Stereolab
Margerine Eclipese – Stereolab

Colour Of Spring – Talk Talk

More Songs About Buildings & Food – Talking Heads
Fear Of Music – Talking Heads
Remain In Light – Talking Heads
Speaking In Tongues – Talking Heads

Wilder – Teardrop Explodes

Little Johnny Jewel (45) – Television
Marquee Moon - Television

Dusk – The The
Dis-Infected (EP) – The The
I Saw The Light (EP) – The The

Bolan's Zip Gun – T.Rex

Endless Nights – Vacant Lots

The Chameleons live in Toronto 87 and Berlin 83


Dif Juz - Extractions. As recommended by fatalist and sweetcheat. Yeah not bad at all


I love Chameleons live stuff, the way they add in bits of other people's songs always makes me smile.

Glad you like Dif Juz, they seem to have been forgotten along the way rather.


I seem to recall that Extractions is good, but very much a 4AD production (Robin Guthrie twiddling the knobs I think?). Soundpool, which collects their earlier EPs, is both better and more prescient. The mini-album Who Says So? is also well worth a listen: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL7FC81E264CE35D64

Colleen – A Flame My Love, A Frequency. French lady who started off doing stuff with sampled harp loops, but is now more in a minimal/cosmic/electronics category – and yes, she does sometimes sound a bit like Jane Weaver here, but more… French, and stranger. Possibly a grower, but some effort required: https://colleencolleen.bandcamp.com/album/a-flame-my-love-a-frequency

BÊNNÍ – I & II. More John Carpenter-loving 80s style electronica, like Pye Corner Audio, but with added cheese. This is pretty great though: https://bennimusic.bandcamp.com/track/pyrran-control-station-2

Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band – Dreaming In The Non-Dream. Really getting into this now, their most concise effort yet – Television meets the Stones meets Can… https://chrisforsyth1.bandcamp.com/

JuJu – Our Mother Was A Plant. A lot better on second listen…

Terje Rypdal – Bleak House. Love the downbeat grooviness of the opening track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmPQOhjpgqc

They were a proto-Guthrie really weren't they? His solo records have a hint of Dif Juz about them.
