Current Vinyl Playlist VOL 5
This is the fifth installment on my new regular entry on this mess of a blog...
I'm working hard on catching up.
Here's four that were waiting for a blog post about:
1) Aphex Twin - Selected Ambient Works 85-92
IMO, this is where you start if you are interested in getting into ambient techno. A good starting point since this is the album that kicked off this whole genre.
2) Idles - Ultra Mono
One of my favorite releases of 2020, this British post-punk outfit will remind you of Sleaford Mods and the Fall at the same time. Here's the promo clip of "Mr Motivator",the first single from the LP. I guess one can call it aggressively fun.
3) Dua Lipa - Future Nostalgia: The Moonlight Edition
A few months ago, once I saw this on the shelf, I had to pick up this double album. One of the best dance-pop albums ever made, this is the bonus version with an extra album full of bonus tracks and a remix of "Levitating". This is just hard to not like, even though I'm really not into this genre.
4) The Damned - The Rockfield Files
Forty-five years and still going strong, The Damned returned to the studio of their early 80's LPs The Black Album and Strawberries and pumped out this 4 song EP in late 2020. OVer the past 20 years, they've honed their own unique sound - a version of psychedelic tinged goth punk that works great on this. Can't wait for more.
Be back in a week of so with more. I'm getting more records faster than I can post about.
