A-B-B-A

Yes. I love ABBA. No shame involved. And not ironically.

ABBA - Arrival. amazon.com. Used.

Today this old man learned a new thing.

"B-Town"

Apparently, a number of the newer British bands I've been enjoying over the past year or two are coming out of this scene. Peace. JAWS. And Swim Deep.

All are fantastic.

Swim Deep - Where the Heaven Are We. amazon.com. New.

King Krule isn't bad. But I really don't get the hype.

He kind of bores me. And I like a lot of "boring" music.

Maybe I'm missing something. Maybe more listens are in order.

King Krule. iTunes.

Solid rock. Welsh I believe. Worth checking out.

(Holy shit I'm behind on posts. By the time I'm getting to these they aren't so "new" anymore.)

Trampolene - Under the Strobe Light. iTunes.

Retry

I was really excited by "Talkin' Loud" when I first read about the label back in the nineties. But when I started picking up releases I was incredibly let down.

Fast forward twenty years or so and I decided to try again.

Much better. So much so I think I should dig into the back catalog.

Galliano - The Plot Thickens. Used.

The first track has this Dischord-esque aspect to it that I find very interesting.

Dead Wolf Club is very good. Highly recommended. They have this very familiar feel - even if I can't say they sound exactly like "this band" or "that band." It works.

Dead Wolf Club - Healer. iTunes.

More "Nineties Revival" (for lack of a better term). And I couldn't be happier. Maybe it's the nostalgia in me or the approach to middle age. But I really think the decade (spilling into the late eighties) was a real high point for "indie rock."

Blessa - Between Times. iTunes.

A German name and sounds a bit like Joy Division? You know you'll like this.

Autobahn - Autobahn 1. iTunes.

Not Much To Say

I've always liked Leftfield in a casual sense. Any time I've heard them, I've liked what I was hearing.

This is the only thing I've ever managed to buy.

Leftfield - Rhythm and Stealth. Used.

Every time I press play all I can think of is Twin Peaks.

It's soothing.

"Marble World" less soothing. Still good.

Silver Fox - Waves On In/Marble World. iTunes.
