What are you listening to Part the Third

Recommended Posts

St. Vincent

Her most successful pop album, I think. Masseduction was great, but her self-titled 2014 album has better, more emotionally honest songs.

Now this ^.  Just one track in, but I already know I'll like it.

Mansun – Six

It's strange I haven't ever listened to this album, or its predecessor, Attack of the Grey Lantern seriously (i.e., not while distracted at work)... I have the US versions, which have rearranged and substitute tracks compared to the UK releases. Fantastic Brit-rock for people with eclectic pop tastes. Complexly layered, passionately performed, and brilliantly composed, but ear candy nonetheless.

The 1975 -- A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships 

A_Brief_Inquiry_into_Online_Relationships.thumb.png.bc4be1d6ce4fedacd729c0bf70432315.png

This is getting some hyperventilating reviews like "OMG it's OK Computer for millennials!" which is bollocks of course. But it is very good in parts and quite thought-provoking as a whole.  For me, the B-side kind of meanders a bit, but it's one of those rare albums nowadays that absolutely merits a few listens all the way through.

I'm curious, listening to it on Tidal. The beginning sounds more like any of those crappy autotuned albums, then it becomes british formulaic pop without the guts of any punk or even Oasis. Well, they say fucking at some point. We'll see.
