Hey there! Long time since I've ventured in here. Hope everyone's been doing well. Here's some newer stuff I've had in rotation lately. What about you?
After a while with PJ Harvey's "Let England Shake", I'm really liking it. There are bits I don't care for and it's pretty different from the PJ I've always loved best, but all in all, I find myself really enjoying it.
From last year, I absolutely love Warpaint's "The Fool". This all girl band definitely listened to the Smiths, the Cure and Joy Division.
She Keeps Bees' "Dig On" is good so far. I haven't spent a whole lot of time with it. There's no real knockout tracks, but still it's solid all the way through.
I just got War on Drugs' "Slave Ambient" and after the first spin I'm liking what I'm hearing.
Also looking for to the new Wooden Shjips, because I love me some space rock.
I have Giant Sand's "Thin Line Man". It has a song called Body of Water that I've always liked. I happened upon this video of the old Giant Sandworms' version of the same song and WOW!!!! I'm sure it's not for everyone, but I love it.
Hey Rae! I think the official release is the 13th. I've listened to some previews and I like as well.
Well, I'm relinquishing a little bit of my cred by saying that I didn't realize that they have one coming out; the one I've been listening to a lot lately is Dos. That one is so so good, especially the closing jam "Falling". I checked out the new one today and it's a lot different; not saying that I won't find an angle on it but definitely a slightly different sound. I think I'm going to see them in Chicago in November and these songs should be massive live.
Wowzers, not sure how on earth I could have missed WarPaint, but I sure did. Grabbed a bootleg on Dime a Dozen and I've been playing it non-stop since I read your post on Sat. Got it ordered and can't wait to the postman to get this disc to me.
Also, Wooden Shjips is something I went ahead and ordered too. Like what I was able to hear online. thanks for the tips!
