End of Year ramalamadingdong

Post by shadowplay » Tue Jan 07, 2020 7:21 am

No end of year thread this year...so I'll come back for one night only to start one.

Mine is the form of 100 tracks/artistes (kinda in alphabetical order and probably more than 100) , which I cobbled together for a new years day playlist based or records I've bought this year, though a few changes here as some were not linkable.

No chit chat or context other than them all being from 2019 and whether they are elpees, twelves or sevens is something for you to discover if you can be arsed. I think 97 or so of the 100 have been available in the shops at some time or other this year and the remainder are digital orphans. Not exhaustive by any stretch, I'm already remembering stuff I missed but you have to draw the line somewhere.

Archive releases are marked with an asterisk, most of which I had already but I still enjoyed getting a few in black format or just lacking 40 years of cack handed handling.

Thanks for sharing. Despite the fact that I've retired from seeking out new music (I lasted longer than the average) I'm still slightly curious about what goes on anyway, and I'm making my way through these out of interest.

So far I liked 3 of the first 10!

Nice list David, as others have said lots there I know and lots new to explore.

There have some great post punk releases in 2019. In no particular order, although Drahla is probably top of the pops for me.

Drahla - Useless Coordinates
Current Affairs - Object & Subject - Glaswegian goodness with members of Shopping.
B Boys - Dudu
Trash Kit - Horizon - Different members of Shopping doing something else.
Snapped Ankles - Stunning Luxury
Crows - Silver Tongues
Feels - Post Earth
Ceremony - In The Spirit World Now
Diat - Positive Disintergration
Necking - Cut Your Teeth

A bit of contemporary shoegazing.
DIIV - Deceiver
bdrmm - If Not, When?

Some Australian punk and noise.
Tropical Fuck Storm - Braindrops
Ukib - Next Phase MLP

Lastly some post-rock.
Code in the Clouds - Codes in the Clouds

I enjoyed trawling through all of this, thanks.

A few of the more folky numbers have been added to my latest yoga playlist :)

slight return...

I looked over my list and kicked myself a little at a few of the missing (some of which sammy mopped nicely; btw sammy did you hear the Mikey Young record?), however the BIG omission was the truly astonishing Andrew Wasylyk elpee "The Paralian", which is capable of billowing powerful emotional eddies though even the most permafrozen hearts, so I thought it worth dropping back for this one alone since a few folk on OSG really like Hampshire and Foat on the same label.

The Paralian in many ways would actually slot snugly on the shelves of ye olde Hauntological threade or on the Claypipe label.

If it was one track only I'd probably put HB to spotting jotter and focus my binoculars towards The Flight of the Cormorant.
Andrew Wasylyk is the alias of Scottish writer, producer and multi-instrumentalist, Andrew Mitchell.

In 2018, Andrew was extended a residency invite from arts centre and historic house, Hospitalfield, Arbroath, Scotland to create new music for their restored, 19th century, Erard Grecian harp*.
During Wasylyk's five-month sojourn he created melodies and progressions echoing the building's unique relationship with the looming North Sea horizon. Using not only the harp, but the house's original grand piano, Andrew explored the Angus landscape and beyond, gathering field recordings on trips to neighbouring Seaton Cliffs and Bell Rock Lighthouse (the world's oldest surviving sea-washed lighthouse).
Winter slipped into spring, and harp-led compositions gave way to an ambitious third, full-length album, exploring a range of themes utilising a broad palette of instrumentation, including flugelhorn, euphonium, oboe, string trio, vintage synthesisers, drones and upright piano.

From the wandering, Bob James-esque, Fender Rhodes and shimmering strings in the study of coastal light, "(Welter) In The Haar", to the plaintive brass and farewell transmission blowing through, "Adrift Below A Constellation", punctuated by the fragility of Wasylyk's sole lead vocal of this collection - "The Paralian" (a dweller by the sea), is a conclusion embued with blue and golden melodies that land in a territory akin to experimentalists such as Robert Wyatt and Brian Eno. Through which, Wasylyk weaves the listener along a Modern-classical, Ambient and Jazz dream of Scotland's east coast.

Athens Of The North team were stunned by the luminous beauty and creativity at play in this work. Falling between genres and time, it stands next to 60s British Jazz, effortlessly blending notes of Library and soundtracks with dashes of British Folk
Anyway hopefully 2020 will meet 2019's standards, it's already off to a decent if tentative start for me with some wondrous unobtanium never released Italian Cold Wave wonders, the strange case of the Paul Weller seven inch on Ghost Box**, a few other dainties and an ever filling preorder/future release spotting jotter, as well as catching up with a few things I hadn't got around to playing in December (currently diskoing to this with a reluctant Maine Coon).

So happy 2020 and I hope you all got a Scarfolk Annual from Santa.

*very much worth looking up since it makes a Gretsch White Falcon look like a cigar box guitar.

Did you hear Jübl's DNA Cowboys? It’s very good. Even without Alex, the heart of AR Kane beats strong.

Hey D, no I missed that but it's now on the list and thankfully available through Castleface.
That Andrew Wasylyk is brilliant also.
One for 2020 is Hobledehoy's release of Luke Howard's - The Sand That Ate The Sea.

if we're talking about this year. only 2 albums stood out enough for me to mention. i dont thing either of these are going to be david's bag but i figured i'd bring them up anyway.

morbid stuff - PUP

as many of you all know, i grew up listening to pop-punk/skate-punk. i will say i was too good for blink 182, simple plan and green day....... but i did have a real love for the offspring. to me, morbid stuff - PUP was one of the first pop-punk albums in years i actually thought was not only good but possibly an all time great. yeah, parts of it are very cliche to the genre but they put a personal spin on it and make it seem almost fresh again.

panorama - la dispute

so for years people had told me to give la dispute a go because "their kinda like ATDI crossed with refused" but they never got my motor going. they felt like one of those bands who tried to bridge the gap between the modern post-hardcore and the more classic kind. but got damn did panorama surprise me. fulton street I is a fucking gut wrenching tune. i realise that song was released in late december of last year but as is epitaph's MO over the last few years, it's bring out a single then bring out the album 2-3 months later. this was an album i'm glad i waited for though. i do find it exhausting but more like i ran a marathon where i was running from my personal demons yelling at me.

honestly, i'll check out some of the songs on david's list later on.
