New to me - "new" bands and music

  • Tame Impala, I know little other than the name. But came across this longish tune, Let It Happen, which I love. Especially the glitchy bit where it sounds like the file is broken:

    They're one of those bands I almost always like when I hear them on the radio but for some reason it doesn't translate into actual fandom - I only have one of their albums. I should rectify that!

    Abandon all reason

  • A few I hadn't heard/heard of before. Sorry for the bombardment, I've been noting these down but not posting. Apart from my usual source, various shows on BBC 6Music, I've also been listening a lot to two stations in CA - KCRW (Santa Monica) and Soma (San Francisco) which are proving to be fertile grounds for hearing stuff I didn't prevously know.


    Mini Trees - Cracks In The Pavement


    Temples - Not Quite The Same


    David Ian Roberts - Hold The Line


    Colleen Green - I Wanna Be A Dog


    Ellis - The Drain


    Liam Finn - Wild Animal


    The New Pornographers - Colossus Of Rhodes


    Inu - A Crowded Place

  • I'm a longtime fan of The New Pornographers. This album (In the Morse Code of Brake Lights) is very good and if you like it, I encourage you to explore their other albums. Perhaps start with their first one Mass Romantic and then sample Brill Bruisers for a somewhat later one.

    Thanks for the tip, I shall investigate.

    You should hear the album 'StopMoaning On The Couch!... Sorry different artist!.....😁

  • Mrs Backdrifter heard this and recommended it to me as she thought it had elements of Goldfrapp, of whom I'm a big fan. I'm not 100% convinced but there's enough good stuff going on to keep me listening. Golden Air by Sun's Signature


    At first I was concerned that vocally it was going a bit Sally Oldfield's Mirrors but luckily it just about avoids that twee fate.


    EDIT: Just looked them up, it's former Cocteau Twin Elisabeth Fraser.
