Definitely not a band I’m aware of that would be discussed much here on watmm (it’s The War On Drugs). However this is one of my tip-top discoveries in the last year. I love it. And not so keen on much else they’ve done. This is their first album and has such a magnificent tripped out hazy sound to it, whereas their later releases seem a bit boring and because they may of started to take themselves a bit more serious. Slave Ambient is an entirely different beast altogether.

Playing this now

Its ‘experimental jazz’ (yawns) but it’s on Warp Records, and seeing as I am a Reasonable Person and generally regard myself as one of their most loyal and hardened henchmen I thought that maybe should give it a little delicate twirl on the eardrums. It’s actually rather pleasant. Space 1, 3, 6 & 7 seem cool. Maybe I should file this under jazz albums I would play again. With the other 2 or 3 :whistling:

Demdike Stare - Wonderland

I just love this album so much. One of my favorites of the past several years. Those rich rough gritty beats soothe my soul

By far my favorite David Bowie. Brian Eno and David Bowie is a combo to be reckoned with indeed.

Menacing, strange, jazzy, melodic, atmospheric, heavy hitting. An experimental,spacey, Neo-Noir soundtrack. Always LOVED the Lost Highway intro with I'm Deranged and the full album did not disappoint.

The mixing/production is densely layered, rich and wide. Sounds glorious.

Superb.

Even the album cover is fucking lush.

10/10

I’ve never heard this album. Your passionate description makes me think I should. So I will.

I don’t like every track but I played it yesterday and still my favourite tunes hit the spot. Actually it was fucking brilliant giving it a long deserved spin on the CD player 😎

Did a trawl through Spotify for Sonic Youth stuff I may not have knowledge on. Found this. It’s pretty good. I did a search for it and found an old Rubin Farr thread but it didn’t scream resurrect me!!(there was only 4 or five posts)

Check it out. (If you like instrumental Sonic Youth)

Mendelson - Personne ne le fera pour nous (2007)

Almost through with a first listen to this French art rock album, also the first thing I've checked out from the group. I forget how this ended up in my list. Pretty interesting musically and lyrically (French is my native tongue but it's rusty after 30+ years in the US), but it is quite long at 90 minutes. Broke it up between morning dog walk, lunch dog walk & eating, and afternoon work.

The Glove - Blue Sunshine (1983)

I think this was my first time checking out this Cure/Banshees side project, although it's been in my queue for a long time. It was decent, a little better than expected but no match for either band's output up to this point.

Body Meπa - The Work Is Slow (2020)

Instrumental rock, mix of experimental and post-rock I suppose, with some Krautrock influence. Second listen, as it happens exactly two months after my first.

NUEARZ - Saturation Point (2009)

Hadn't listened to this in a while, came to my attention when revisiting my best of 2009 list. Quite good stuff, and it's dawned on me I haven't paid much attention since. A search on the forum indicates I did listen to the follow-up, Face Lift, but probably just once and I don't remember it. I also didn't catalog it on RYM for some reason. 🤔 Time to revisit that and check out the more recent ones.

Nothing better than satan in my ears and cheese in my belly.
