Temple ov BBV - S/T Didn't make much of an impression with me.

Trembling Bells - Carbeth. Pleasantly surprised by how much I am starting to enjoy their folk rock.

Tony Conrad 10 years on the infinite plain. Started off enjoying it, but not for 1hr and a half! Bit repetitive and I kept thinking it was about to go off into the Superman theme from the 80's!

Rozi Plain live - Green Man 09 & End of the Road 08.

Jack Rose - WFMU sessions. Pleasant yet at the same time a bit dull

Rangda - Miss Peapods 2010. Yes!

Tom Rogerson with Brian Eno – Finding Shore. Seems to be a lot of ambient-ish neo classical around at the moment, and this is a pretty good example of it, as you’d expect with Our Brian on board. Easy for this stuff just to become vaguely pleasant/occasionally challenging aural wallpaper, but definitely some compelling moments here: https://tomrogerson.bandcamp.com/album/finding-shore

Bitchin Bajas – Bajas Fresh. There also seems to be a lot of hipster new age music around too, and again this is a prime example, lots of burbling synth loops and cosmic vibes, nice for an extended massage I’m sure. This is the most ‘up’ of the tracks on what’s a very long album: https://bitchinbajas.bandcamp.com/album/bajas-fresh

Vuelveteloca – Sonora. Ah, this is a bit more like it (certainly if, like me, you seem to be sliding back into adolescence), some punchy psych/stoner/space rock from Chile. Not breaking any new ground, but doing what it does very well. It’d be trite to say they’re like Follakzoid only with more riffs, but they share a similar rhythmic intensity: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ls-R95LZ-vo

Siinai – Sykli

Godspeed You! Black Emperor – Luciferian Towers. Not that I’m an expert in the area, but this and the Siinai above are two of the finest post-rock albums I’ve heard in a long time.

ORB – Naturality. Australian garage rock oddballs, with a sound that’s almost exactly like Barrett-era Floyd/SF Sorrow-era Pretty Things as interpreted by early Sabbath. One for jaded ears: https://orband.bandcamp.com/track/immortal-tortoise

Mt. Mountain – EP. I like these guys, but have realised they don’t half sound like early (The) Verve.

The Zodiac – Cosmic Sounds

VA – Neu Decade

Listen With Father:

Because I am a good father who believes in the importance of continual learning, I have robbed a load of tracks off YouTube in order to educate my daughters that the power chord was not invented by School Of Rock. Much joy compiling this, and in the search for suitable role models, just how brilliant were Girlschool… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ri3yTuC8LR8

T is for…

Tomorrow’s Gift – Goodbye Future. Just before daughter one was born, I had a long weekend in Berlin and bought a load of obscurish Krautrock, which for some reason then ended up in the nursery, including this one. Obviously I felt I needed some background sounds to take my mind off the filth and fury of changing nappies. Anyway, this is pretty great, non-faffing-about instrumental jazz rock, like a Third-era Soft Machine with a rocket up their arse: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twsR4WceEgo The CD also has a couple of extended live tracks from when they were more proggy R&B, including an intensely overwrought take on ‘Season Of The Witch.’

Ten Benson – Hiss. Ah, great to hear this again, reminds me of when I started to appreciate the stupid beauty of rock once more after various diversions into more contemporary and ‘worthier’ sounds. Ten Benson were also rediscovering the joys of rock on this album, albeit in a slightly parodic way, which means that there’s oddly-effected vocals, syn-drums and horrible Casiotone ballads in among the primitive riffage. Talking of which, the final track on this album is called ‘Under Heavy Riffage’, which may be the greatest title ever. Fun fact: one HH denizen took their nom de plume from two songs on this album, neither of them on the web frustratingly. (but here’s the track list if you want to work it out: https://www.discogs.com/Ten-Benson-Hiss/release/1007757) “Mmmm, hot sausage”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yFIRon3YLc

Steve Hackett - The Night Siren / Wolflight

Alice Cooper - Paranormal. I got this out of the library out of morbid curiosity really and, wow, very pleasantly surprised. Produced by Bob Ezrin, this really does feel fresh whilst harking back to the glory years. And, the 2cd version has 2 new tracks plus a live album with the original AC band reconvened in 2016, and it's all rather great.

High On Fire - Luminiferous

The Beatrix Players - Magnified
Ackercocke - The Goat of Mendes / Anti-Christ
Opeth - Sorceress
Jethro Tull - Heavy Horses/Minstrel in the Gallery/Songs From the Wood
Kylie - Aphrodite / Kiss Me Once
Pariah - Mirage
Kadavar - Abra Kadavar
Dramatic Lunacy - Sides

Have a nice week sound slurpers x

It – Alan Vega
Well I've finally managed to get a copy of It, the final Alan Vega album. It (no pun intended!) doesn't seem to have had a UK release for some reason but my copy has now arrived all the way from the USA in delicious double vinyl form! It was a bit weird taking out of the packaging, knowing that this was Al's final release and though there will no doubt be all sorts of post-humous bits and pieces releases in the future, this would be the last time I experienced a proper new album from someone I have admired for so long. As for the content, well I'm almost two thirds of the way through it and I'm glad to report that, like the advance tracks suggested, this is Alan Vega being totally uncompromising until the very end as he screams and croons about the American flag, war and genocide like some mad Elvis impersonator in a David Lynch nightmare over almost industrial beats and backing. A great way for the great man to bow out.

Please Please Me – The Beatles

Animal Magic – The Blow Monkeys

No Time For Dreaming - Charles Bradley

Not long returned from the 300 mile round trio to visit cub no:2 at Winchester Uni, plus a nice afternoon out in the New Forest, maaaan am i knackered! Anyhow, many accompanying tunes included.....

Incredible String Band - Hangman's Beautiful Daughter

Gravenhurst - The Western Lands

Ozric Tentacles - Pungent Effulgent

Tarwater - The Needle Was Travelling

Stooges - Raw Power

White Hills - Heads On fire

Cope - Peggy Suicide/ Live In Japan

Billy Childish - Best Of

Shellac - Live at Action Park

LCD Soundsystem - American Dream

Beck - Colors

We bought the eldest cub a copy of the recenty remastered The Water Margin DVD box set for her birthday, as she loves all things Oriental, and have been reliving those BBC2 Friday evening moments from our youth (me missus was a big fan too). Not as cool as I remember, but still enjoying it. Guess it'll be Monkey Next.

Had an amazing walk out in the Severn valley yesterday. Have been many times as it's literally just up the road for me, but this circular walk (which I'd not done before) near Upper Arley was truley breathtaking, esp the last coupla miles (also some nice spots for a spot of wild camping if you're so inclined). Dunno of it was the time (late afternoon, hazy sun), the time of year (trees just turning, some hues were amazing) or just the general ambience (the lonely echo of a steam train whistle trailing through the river valley) but I can see why Robert Plant has a gaff round these parts. If you're in the area, do yourself a favour and download this walking guide, you won't regret it.

Well, hope y'all battern down the hatches and for the coming maelstrom being predicted for tomorrow, keep safe, and have a good week!
