Childish Gambino - “Awaken, My Love!”

I’ve only recently gotten into CG, had never really listened to him before. I’ve had _“Camp” _on repeat a fair amount recently. Couldn’t really get into his latest effort though. Maybe a few more listens will help.


Blue & Lonesome - The Rolling Stones

Blackstar - David Bowie

Friends - White Lies


It’s a big departure from his other work, but it’s a grower. Helps if you divorce it from his previous albums and take it as a standalone.


Some of my favourites have been…

Grandfeathered - Pinkshinyultrablast

Lines - Waclaw Zimpel

Controlling Body - Peder Mannerfelt

Varmints - Anna Meredith

Varahtelija - Oranssi Pazuzu

Bes - The Dwarfs of East Agouza

Secuirty - Gaika

It’s Hard for Me to Say I’m Sorry - Fennesz & Jim O’Rourke

Hubris - Oren Ambarchi

A Moon Shaped Pool - Radiohead

We Be All Africans - Idris Ackamoor & the Pyramids

Second Woman - Second Woman

Moogmemory - Matthew Bourne


He’s made half of them up. He always does,


Anything from here


I had to! I spent most of the year listening to Prince and weeping.


Haha…I was thinking that…but I am old and out of touch.


You might like the Anna Meredith one, Fatsy.

Although I’m always a bit crap at predicting your taste. You’re so mauve.


The only new music I listen to is usually suggested by posters on here so I concur with suggestions above, particularly the Bowie and Radiohead albums.

Am also enjoying The Soft Bounce by Beyond The Wizards Sleeve at the moment (yes, I know it sounds like I just made that up).


Leonard Cohen - You Want it Darker.

That is all.


Some of the above, plus:

Ulrika Spacek - The Album Paranoia

Death Grips - Bottomless Pit
