In honour of Phil announcing the first new album under the moniker in 17 years (!), I'm rediscovering my love for the album that for a long time I considered to be my very favourite - Mount Eerie by The Microphones. There's something about Phil's style which is just so appealing to me - it's shy, disjointed, eccentric, cluttered and lo-fi, yet also mysterious, beautiful, bold and deeply original. Plus, it has the coolest packaging as you can see below, with a really great poster/lyrics sheet that basically illustrates the story of the album (I have it up beside my bed)..

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Will give that a listen shortly.

In the meantime I'm revisiting one of my favourite albums of 2017 - soulful, jazzy hip-hop with great features and Noname's soothing voice

FB friend of mine (and Dingle Lad's) included Noname's "Casket Pretty" on a kind of police-brutality playlist he just published in his blog

I love Dylan as the aged beat poet on I Contain Multitudes and Murder Most Foul. As a whole I'd put this album somewhere between Tempest and Together Through Life quality wise. Closer to Tempest though. JMO

Over the past 24 hours, I've fallen head over heels in love with this album and its loveable combo of twee pop and shoegaze.

On repeat for the tenth time this week would be "Revolver ". Normally on this thread, I'd write a short story about the album I listened to. This will not be the case this time. It's my favorite album, and that probably says enough, I suppose.

Haha, I had to play it last year after you labeled it as such! It was interesting and unique, but not to my taste st all. Still, I give Phil his props. john-lennon-salute_gif

I'm still in the 70s-80s R&B bag I've been in for the last several months. Now on Chaka Khan's 1978 solo debut
