...or Disco or Dance music even

Your recent Non-Dance music purchases and recommends from the world of um, Rock & Post-Rock etc please

The new Phosphorescent album arrived on my doormat yesterday, it's sounding great. Some pretty electronic production on there to take things in a distinctly different direction from the Alt Country Rock of his last LP.

This is probably the stand out track from the LP

It can be anything you like Ivan. New stuff is great but also things you're listening to a lot, discovering late, rediscovering etc. I'm not fussy.

I picked up the latest Nick Cave LP recently also and was initially a bit meh but it's growing on me. Still, it feels a little bit lightweight without the presence of Blixa and now Mick Harvey.

Mermaids gave me a wry chuckle though

The new Pat Metheny (Orchestrion Project) is well worth a listen. Even contains a revisiting of the "Balearic classic" Sueño Con Mexico...

Thirded for Goat, I thought it was a great album and a great concept for a band. The idea that a lost Voodoo doctor was wandering through the snowy wilderness of Northern Sweden and helped shape a community that spawned the band is fantastic.

I saw The Hookworms live recently at the Sonic Cathedral launch party for their Psyche For Sore Eyes 7" pack see video below). They were fantastic in a late 80's shoegazey, psychedelic Spacemen 3 kind of way and their album is very good too. Lots of other stuff on Sonic Cathedral is always worth a look.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Wwvj7AjR0k&safe=active -Hookworms (the imbed video code buttons are missing for this post, sorry.)

I have seen Eat Light Become Lights recently too and they were very good. Like a modern Krautrock band with live drums and very driven electronic melodies and rhythms.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ju3wOKgSlwI&safe=active - Eat Light Become Lights

The new Toro Y Moi album is well worth picking up too. Its a great mid-point mix between electronic and indie.

Got any more recommendations Michael? I do like that Phosphorescence track you posted.

I've loved Sigur Ros since I first heard them 12 years ago. Got to the stage, over the years, where I kind of took them for granted. Then saw them live again a couple weeks ago at Brixton and felt like a teenager falling in love all over again. Amazing band - especially live.

Cheers for the Goat recommend folks, sounds great... and the others, will check them out

I'll have a think about some others to recommend over the weekend.

The current issue of Mojo has a pretty good freebie CD of contemporary Psychedelic influenced stuff which has prompted me to pick up last years Psychic Ills - Hazed Drea LP (haven't made my mind up about buying the latest one yet) and the Moon Duo LP. There's other stuff on there worth investigating.

Just picked up the new Steve Mason LP but not had chance to give it a spin yet, will report when I have.

I've been having a trawl through the Psychic TV back catalogue recently as well. Highlights so far for me have been:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkMvocfDqXU&safe=active - Just Drifting (Midnight)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5reVtxZOCg&safe=active - Thank You

Also, I have been melting my cerebral matter getting through the Coil back catalogue too.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZvfb52AYK8&list=PLF63447C3DE429830&safe=... - Going Up

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LqgGfVY5wvg&safe=active - NASA Arab

And Sleazy's Threshold Houseboys Choir have proved an interesting listen too. The footage of the Thai piercing festival is pretty gruesome if you are of a weak dispodition, so be warned.

I was listening to some old Moodists records over the weekend. Probably not to everybody's tastes.

Finally got to grips with the new Steve Mason LP today. It's got some great stuff on there but it's also got some questionable stuff, mostly in the form of fairly pointless and pretty sonically uninteresting interludes. So out of 60 minutes of program time you get about 40 ish minutes of decent material, which is coincidentally how about long his last LP was.

I'm not sure the material is quite as strong as the previous album overall but having said that there are a few corkers on there. It's definitely not quite as polished as the last one in terms of production but that's not necessarily a bad thing. There's a rawness and immediacy which is closer to some of the Beta Band's output.

The inclusion of the short filler tracks feels like an odd decision to me as I felt they kinda got in the way of the certifiable nuggets. The highlight for me is the track "Lonely" which I'd link to but the youtube version has some dumb 30 second copyright infringement cut off point.

So... second best track

I've just watched that about 12 times and may well watch it a few more. Top drawer. Much appreciated Slyde.
