Best records of 2014

17 December 2014 - 04:12 PM

What was the best music you bought that came out this year?

 

My vote goes to Benji by Sun Kil Moon, and not forgetting the lovely Lazaretto...

 

I am also enjoying Burn Your Fire For No Witness by Angel Olson.

 

Anyone else?


Sleater-Kinney -- reuniting and playing near you soon(ish)

24 October 2014 - 03:15 AM

Just got my tickets for the 2015 Sleater-Kinney tour. Very excited that they're getting back together with new music. I didn't get into them until a few years ago.

 

Anyone else?

 

(also, am I right in thinking that the White Stripes might have supported S-K once upon a time?)

 

 


How have your musical tastes changed?

In the last couple of years:

 

- I like my guitar music rawer, scuzzier and nastier as time goes on. I can't bear the sound of production values.

 

- I have discovered that I like electronic music: Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin. But this does NOT stretch to "dance music", which I still hate.

 

- Instrumental music is a big thing for me now (partly thanks to the recommendations I got on the LR!), it's much better for when I'm working.

 

 

What about you?

A thought about Jack... am I right?

Is Jack White, right now this moment, the biggest rock star on the planet?

 

His tour is getting plenty of coverage, a lot of interviews etc about. 

 

Springsteen, Green Day, U2, RHCP all pretty quiet at the moment. Coldplay aren't making much noise. Arcade Fire have finished touring.

 

In August 2014, is anyone bigger than Jack?
