Discordia: 2003-2020 – Akatombo
Compilation of material from Akatombo who first came to our attention via an album on Colin Newman's Swim label. I've been a fan of his dark, soundtracky stuff ever since.

Zinc Alloy – Marc Bolan & T.Rex
The much-maligned 'over-produced' LP. I'm biased so needless to say I love it.

Countless Branches – Bill Fay
The last two Fay albums have been extraordinarily good. But whereas some other fave artists like Cope, Wire and the Pet Shop Boys have released great additions to their catalogue so early in the year, this one – although not bad by any means - isn't quite doing it for me like the past two have. Not yet anyway.

Close To The Glass – The Notwist
Neon Golden was such a brilliant album, that I've tended to think that their later albums – as good as they are - haven't quite lived up to it. Re-investigating this I have had to re-evaluate this opinion. Quite glitchy at times, more energetic at others, there are some beautiful moments here.

Henry May Long – Max Richter
Incredibly beautiful. I need to investiagte him further.

Stranded – Roxy Music
Quite simply one of the greatest albums ever AFAIC.

Also...
Mirror Man – Captain Beefheart

Drinking Gasoline – Cabaret Voltaire
Um Dad – Stephen Mallinder

John Balance Enters Valhalla – Julian Cope

Join The Queue – Dillinger / Roots Radics / We The People Band

Monkey Business 12” - Pet Shop Boys
Hotspot – Pet Shop Boys

Voodoo Lounge – Rolling Stones

The Great American Songbook – V/A
