Your Favourite Album of the Week


Recommended Posts

Madonna

American Life

Europe

2003

 

This was an album that was under appreciated by me in 2003 but it seems more relevant today than at that time and one I love very much now. I have the DJ remixes of the single "American Life" with Missy Elliott, they are awesome too. But I am a Remix Junkie so that is no great revelation I guess :D

Hi All,

 

This week I have picked an electronic album by Ott, Skylon as my album of the week. It was an album released in the late 2012, with a smallish batch of LPs pressed, I was able to get a CD initially. There have been a couple of re-pressings since then, Kickstarter had one about late 2017, but again a limited pressing and I missed out, now there has been another small pressing available for a few months on Bandcamp and I was able to get a copy. You can also stream to the album on Bandcamp.

Hi All,

 

The Flaming Lips, At War With The Mystics, as classic a Flaming Lips album as there is, IMHO second only to Yoshimi

Hi All,

 

Tomita, Firebird. Released in 1975 by Japanese musician Isao Tomita, it was a time of electronic experimentation. and Stravinsky's Firebird Suite, was a grand experiment in translating a full orchestral piece into a piece for synthesizers.

Love this label. Ninja Tune have been behind so much of the best modern music for the last 30 years and this 6-LP collection has a fantastic array of their best from 1990 to 2000. I bought this for a song at a record fair in the now defunct Flying Scotsman pub many moons ago and is undoubtedly my 'best ever' vinyl buy. In mostly NM condition I count myself very lucky to own this. It's my album of the week every now and then, and this week is honoured to have it.

Hi All,

 

The past week the Favourite Album would have to be 'Electric Castle, Live' by Ayreon, Space Rock at its best and a great group of performers and musicians.

American Pop Music from the Motion picture soundtrack, amazing selection of great songs. The side B is my favourite as the songs blend nicely, it starts with Hendrix and finishes with the Doors and have The Dave Brubeck Quartet in between.

Bob Moses  ‎– Days Gone By - 2LP - 2015 - Domino records - Canadian duo who produce rather laid back electronica deep house -  this has been on constant rotation this week.   superb uplifting music - perfect for hangova's and causing them ;)

Hi All,

 

Russian group, Alba's album Sacramentarium .

 

1121917010_AlbaSacramentarium.jpg.ca2da63051827fee2ac17a846bc4fec5.jpg

 

From Bandcamp : -

This fusion makes music very multifarious: from meditative ancient mantras to psychedelic circus with constantly changing mood.
Rich tunes includes lots of traditional and modern instruments, such as sitar, hang drum, flute, guitar, saxophone, daf, krezh, accordion, didgeridoo…

Harry Styles

Fine Line

2019

US

 

This was recommended to me due to it being a superb pressing and it sure did not disappoint. I am not a 1D fan and had not really paid any attention to Harry, but have to say that this is a brilliant album and did not disappoint. Everything about it is perfection and the pressing is flawless. I am totally loving this one.

Bob  Hund - Bob Hund (1994)

 

"bob the dog" - Swedish indie rock band from Malmo. Knowing at least some language helps however in no way is it necessary to appreciate the raw and yet refined, unique voice of Bob Hund from their earliest days. Some distant influence from Sonic Youth, British New Wave and electro I guess but mostly utterly original and fresh. Quintessentially Swedish, while underground indie as well. An album I return to time and again.

Hi All,

 

Melbourne band, Butterfly, Doorways Of Time a Progressive / Metal band that sound similar to a cross between Black Sabbath (Early 70s), Deep Purple (Early 70s) and Uriah Heep (Demons and Wizards Era)
