I'm a big fan of Richard Davies, have been since the '94 Cardinal record with Eric Matthews, and his three solo records, especially the excellent first two, There's Never Been A Crowd Like This and Telegraph, but for some reason never felt a compulsion to check out what he did with the Moles before all that. Turns out that the last Moles record pictured above was probably more akin to a Richard Davies solo debut, and sounds very weird and cool. Very much a 60s psych-chamber-pop sound. Nice stuff, and very nice sounding too. Been listening to it a lot lately, along with the later ones.

"Benji" - Sun Kil Moon (one of my favorites so far this year...)

But it's only February! What are some of your other favorites? I haven't heard Benji yet, but big Kozelek fan, so any year he has some new music out it is likely to be near the top of my list. Well, that might not be true since last one I bought was April, but it was one of the best.

 

Can't say that I've heard anything that special yet this year, though I do like that Black Dirt Oak I talked about a little in the 2014 thread. And The Notwist, but haven't really decided how much I like it yet, wish it was mastered more like Neon Golden (or likely the Sun Kil Moon, or surely the Black Dirt Oak). Anyway, not much idea yet what is on the horizon. Mary Timony is supposed to have a new one with her new band Ex Hex coming soon, sounds very cool so far based on live clips and the single.

"Benji" is GOOD. I loved "April," but this one is different. It's in the lyrics. I also really like the new album "Flesh + blood" by the John Butler Trio, and the new album "Emmaar" by Tinariwen. I've got quite a few pre-orders in the cart. I think that this is going to be a good year...I need to check out "Black Dirt Oak"

Sounds a little like that Three Mile Pilot odds and ends, An Old Town We Once Knew that I think you like. Has that relaxed and rambling sound, though the music is a bit different, maybe a little more bluesy, not many vocals, but some. Sounds a bit like Can at times. Kind of like that Tracker Polk record that I like a lot, but it is a little more weird. Just one part of the whole, and the CD does sound a lot better, but a reasonable sample ...

 

 

I don't really know the John Butler Trio, but I know of them, or maybe I've just heard the name. What is that like? What would be something good to sample?

Yes, you know me, I'm liking that. Where can you get that on CD? Amazon only has it on vinyl...

 

John Butler Trio -

Thanks, I'll give those a listen. I don't know that Black Dirt Oak has gotten a CD release yet, may be worth waiting for, but I just did the paypal download ... http://mie.limitedrun.com/products/521748-black-dirt-oak-wawayanda-patent ... probably available other places too.

 

Edit: Oh, I see what you mean now, I'm the one that said CD, my mistake, I just have the MP3 download. It does sound better than youtube, but the vinyl probably would be a step up, as would a full resolution CD. I'd guess a CD would be coming.

A few new purchases:

 

Stand Up by Dave Matthews Band

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

My Shame Is True by Alkaline Trio

 

Infinite Arms by Band of Horses

post #50339 of 70993

Spirits of the Dead, a terrific norweigan psychedelic and progressive rock band.

 

 

Rumours of a Presence is rock-*******-solid from cover to cover, with maybe one exception in seaweed. 

 

 

 

The Great God Pan. Goldberry and Leaves of Last Year's Fall are immediate standouts. 

 

I'm convinced that these guys have something special going.
