Field Music - The Noisy Days Are Over
The Sunderland veterans - I think we can say that - off their new LP Commontime due out in February.
The Ethical Debating Society - Sum Of My Parts
Off their debut album New Sense which came out in June. One from the extensive backlog I've got built up.
Tools You Can Trust - Working And Shopping
An oldie, but relevant. Originally released in 1985, it's recently been remastered and is out now on Burkas For Everyone records.
Low - Gentle
Low - What Part Of Me
Their 11th studio album, Ones And Sixes, came out in September and it's typically beautiful. Some of it is quite gentle, some less so. But more of that later.
The Spook School - Speak When You're Spoken To
From Edinburgh - and you can pick out the accent - this is off the LP Try To Be Helpful which came out in October.
Primitive Parts - Rented Houses
Those busy chaps from Sauna Youth/Monotony now combine with parts of Male Bonding to create another band. This is off Miracle Skin which is out now.
Lovely Eggs - Goofin' Around (In Lancashire)
The new single from our favourite Lancaster-based husband/wife duo. Out on November 13 on fried egg vinyl which looks tremendous.
Gwenno - Fratolish Hiang Perpeshki
The stunning Gwenno Saunders' Welsh language album Y Dydd Olaf came out in October 2014, but got a do-over in July which propelled it to the level it deserved. I am not going anywhere near the pronunciations.
Rodents - Calm Down
This is ace. I know little of them, but the fact they're on Art Is Hard is a marker of quality.
Low - Landslide
Almost ten minutes. Stunning. Absolutely stunning. Words can barely describe.
Blanck Mass - Double Cross
Benjamin John Power - half of Fuck Buttons - released Dumb Flesh under the name Blanck Mass in spring. We have had tracks from it before, but no reason to not play another one.
Luca Ballerini - Hanami (Armonia Rosa)
To Italy now, for some techno. Superb. Came out in August, that.
Here's that on YouTube:
More next week.
