This afternoon's Bowie-fix, Reality (2003), lovingly dedicated to @50yearslate a-hard-days-night-george-9heart

Next up: Probably Lodger - Bowie (1979) -- now THAT'S a weird one ahdn_john_08_gif but it's been a while since I heard it, so I feel I should give it a spin.

I'm listening to Lodger now.

David Bowie has done a LOT of albums. They're all weird. This one is hands-down his weirdest. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

It's got 'Fantastic Voyage', 'D.J.', and 'Boys Keep Swinging' on it. ahdn_john_08_gifpaul-mccartney-thumb_gif

It's also got... whatever this is a-hard-days-night-paul-7

It's kind of an oddball fun album (plus it's BOWIE), go check it out if you like. mccartney-shrug_01_gif As the comments under the above song say:

I've spent this evening attempting to catch up on a few 2019 releases from this year, and while I'm not as blown away as I was this time last year (2018 was an AMAZING year for music all round) I've really enjoyed some of the stuff I've heard. Here's a few of the albums.

Stella Donnelly - Beware of the Dogs 

Basically a really fun and upbeat pop/indie rock album with very cutting lyrics, particularly in this track which attacks male privilege. 

Sun Kil Moon - I Also Want To Die In New Orleans

Mark Kozelek's stream-of-consciousness folk and slowcore music is very hit and miss for me, but this album has some cool jazzy instrumentation that makes it really enjoyable. 

Sharon Van Etten - Remind Me Tomorrow 

Another great indie rock album, would recommend if you liked the Stella Donnelly one. 

American Football - American Football LP3 

I was expecting to dislike this based on the embarrassing looking song titles and the kind of disappointing predecessor, but this album is very fresh, expansive and beautiful. The feature of Rachel Goswell from Slowdive was awesome too. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CaZUVZ2F_Dc

Little Simz - Grey Area 

The first hip hop album I've really enjoyed from this year. Little Simz marks herself out as someone to watch on the scene. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iSSKDIcpdSE

I've also been meaning to check out the new Xiu Xiu and Flume projects, and also get round to hearing Egypt Station.

Was:

After the Specials and the Fun Boy Three, what Terry Hall did next...

Great album but major shift of direction musically for Hall that was a relative commercial failure.

Am:

(1982)

I'm spoiling myself. a-hard-days-night-john-6 Hadn't listened to this in an aeon but when I thought of it as a good candidate for the Underrated thread, you gotta check your memory ain't fooling ya!!! Past twelve hours I've listened to the 1966 tracks 10-15 times and, with me ironically just shifting into the 1965 tracks, the '65 maybe half-a-dozen (not that they ain't good, just that '66 a-hard-days-night-john-1paul-mccartney-thumb_gifa-hard-days-night-george-4a-hard-days-night-ringo-6).

What a shitty shitty shitty fecking hand life dealt them, visas and the draft took it all away. Woulda been interesting to watch them, Floyd and Hendrix looking to out psych(-rock) each other in '67. Ain't no doubt they would have been major players.

And they'd be remembered for being the originator of the light show that Floyd nicked.

If you ain't read the Underrated post yet, @Beatlebug, you might find it interesting. I reckon you'd like them.

D'Angelo's Black Messiah. One of the coolest, funkiest albums to come out this decade. Would definitely recommend.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Will be checking that out later

Right now: Miles Davis, "Dear Old Stockholm" (on "Jazz Masters" tv music channel; Charlie Parker's "Embraceable You")

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
