    Haven't listened to anything other than synthwave for like two years now.

    I have no idea what that is.

    I'm listening to new stuff I bought from Iron and Wine, Sharon Van Etten and Malcolm Middleton.

    I listened to the new Springsteen album the other day, songwriting seems decent but I don't like the sound so far :(

    It's basically electronic music with a nostalgic 80's vibe, but it has a lot of sub-genres (and associated arguments about what qualifies as what). I'm not a purist by any means and prefer some of the more commercial stuff like The Midnight and Gunship:





    My favourite album at the moment is Dreamrider by Lazerhawk. I was listening to this track on a rainy night-time bus ride over the Yokohama bay bridge with the city skyline lit up and it couldn't have been more perfect:

    Heh that was a work trip, the place I actually live is a lot less glamorous.

    The best I can hope for from a work trip is to go to Wolverhampton.

    Now, I quite like Wolverhampton as it happens, but still.

    British Blues at their best:
    Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac 1967-69
    Just so funky and groovy.

    Gotta love the Peter Green Mac.

    Currently listening to a Sigur Ros album I can't pronounce let alone have hope of typing, Anima by Thom Yorke and still loving UFOF by Big Thief. Best folk album I've heard since the Fleet Foxes one years ago

    Oh Sees have released a 21 minute track from their new double album Face Stabber.
    Sounds like they've swallowed a Can.

    Cool album cover as always.

    I think I might have a new favourite Mogwai track: My Father, My King.

    On the surface it doesn't really do that much different from your other staples. Simple melodies and chord progressions, repeat them as they build up volume and layer upon layer of distortion, go quiet with an altered melody, then loud again as everything falls apart around the 15-minute mark. This is just what they do.

    But the melody just works so damn well. I guess it isn't really theirs (it's from a Jewish hymn), but I like it even more than Fear Satan. Though it's definitely more abrasive than that.

    Still listening to random modern country music courtesy of Alexa and Amazon Music. It makes great background music for work.

    Nice. Listen to classic disco, though.

    Babymetal.

    I want to say they are great but I also want to avoid being put on a register.

    Been listening to Postmodern Jukebox and Robyn Adele Anderson. they do cover versions of modern songs but in jazz, swing or 50's latin style.

    Stefansen. Just a misunderstood genius ahead of his time. Once I've got a grip on recording rock/metal songs on PC I must pay hommage and do a cover.

    Not a huge Oasis fan but this is utterly incredible.

    This is my thought every time I hear them.
    But Karate is such a good song.

    That kind of thing boils my piss, like Bossa Nova covers of pop songs.
    Possibly the most irritating music this side of Ed Sheeran.

    New Underworld track taps into the euphoria of the 90s, but feels bang up to date and twinkly AF:
