New New New Music Thread

Recommended Posts

People enjoy different things but I think we should stop trying to reduce experiences to these discrete components and understand and enjoy them holistically

Oh yeah totally agree :)

 

I think I'm also generally trying to talk myself out of the temptation to buy new vinyl copies of albums I've already got on CD, old vinyl!

Yeah I get the appeal of the tactile aspect of vinyl and it does have an advantage over CD's in that respect, and if the album art is good then the bigger sleeve is a plus.

 

I remain slightly unconvinced by the "appeal" of getting up to turn the thing over tho :)

Vinyl on the shelf looks good, CDs just don't

Yeah I just bought my 3rd copy of Led Zeppelin II. I have 2 pre-owned versions of different print and different rating but a new one for 12 quid was too good an offer to turn down for such a classic. Looks great on the shelf too.

Ha!

 

Yeah I'm always tempted but I can't justify it financially but if it makes you happy, go for it mate :)

Speaking of (well, we were a few posts back) vinyl album art, the new Tony Visconti remix of Bowie's Space Oddity is one of the most beautifully packaged albums I've ever come across. It's really lovely.

Fans of Roc Marciano will find stuff to like on his new album.

 

Not his best but some good stuff on there.

New Against All Logic album’s good.

Ooh nice one - I'd manage to miss that I'll give it a listen later.

 

Loved the last album under that name and Jaar's stuff generally.

New Wolf Parade album is really good.

Really enjoying Big Thief as well. New to me.

Really liked both of the albums they released last year, particularly UFOF. Thought that was amazing, particularly the title track.

Some decent stuff on the new Jay Electronica album

 

Nothing especially earth shattering but quite a good listen.
