1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

2020 New Album Recommendations

Discussion in 'music' started by Whaleblue, Feb 2, 2020.

    Surprised this wasn’t already a thread.

    I’m hoping to get some more listening time this year myself, after moving and a whole load of associated distractions last year, so would really like to know what others are discovering through this year.

    Nothing has really jumped out at me yet (which explains the thought for the thread), but this is something I’ve listened to a couple of times and from a genre on the periphery of my normal fare... re-imagined classical folk songs...

    Bonny Light Horesman - Bonny Light Horsemen

    (Perhaps try Magpie’s Nest as a taster)

    Bonny Light Horesman - Bonny Light Horsemen

    Thanks, listening to this now: Opening track hits the spot.

    Not seen much yet this year and been catching up on those end of year lists and so on.

    Just read a review of Joey Alexander's new album, Warna, which sounds good.

    Someone beat me to it... Sam Lee with Old Wow
    Aoife Scott, Homebird
    and Seth Lakeman has a new one out on Friday which sounds promising.

    I am more interested in the view of the person suggesting it. Like Guey did above.

    No big deal, but thanks for your tips.

    On bandcamp now. Reminds me of early Human League - the Dignity of Labour.

    Ha! Weirdly, I pulled the 12 of that out a week or so back - hadn't listened to it in years.

    An addition: the new Wire album turned up today.
    The usual excellent angular songs, with oblique lyrics.
    43 years in, and they're still making great, interesting records. I'm struggling to think of anyone else who's managed that.

    I second the Wire album.
    Also Storm Damage by Ben Watt.
