Anyone else heard this?

It's a lovely, smiley combination of Teenage Fanclub, Phoenix, maybe a bit of Belle and Sebastian, and some Air vocoders for good measure. It's light and frothy and warm and smile-inducing. Best album of the year for me so far....

Try Sunndal Song and Energy for a start...

Title changed to reflect the fact that TIME_IS_IN_LOVE took it off-topic within one post... ;)

So, aside from the above, brilliant, Apples in Stereo album, which gets better with every listen, current faves are...

Battles - Atlas

Frankly mental tribal drums, squeaky vocals and choppy guitar lunacy. Rest of their album's shockingly bad, but this is genius.

Wu-Tang Clan - Ain't Nothing to Fuck With (Bird Peterson mix)

Courtesy of Fluxblog, the Wu-Tang violated on the dancefloor.

Gameboy/Gamegirl - Sweaty Wet / Dirty Damp

Also thanks to Fluxblog for this faintly filthy sounded Aussie tune, fits neatly into the 80s vibe going on in my head alongside...

Calvin Harris - Acceptable in the 80s

This year's Mylo, maybe, for better or worse, this is a brilliantly bouncy retro piece, that sounds as though Richard X had a hand in it, and there's not much praise higher than that! Honourable mention for Kool Uncle - Big and Dirty Dreams, which is apprently a bootleg by King Unique... Human League's 'Things that dreams are made of' and Martini Bros 'Big and Dirty' (albeit I'm about 2 years late on that one...

Fujiya Miyagi - Ankle Injuries

Reminds me a bit of Lali Puna's 'Rapariga Da Banheira', with a kind've driving bass groove, whilst a softly spoken bloke bangs on about pixelated jazz mags...


So. What's floating your boat at the moment?

Simon

I really liked Kieran Hebden and Steve Raid's new album, and the clark's ted EP was amazing.

k-os - atlantis: hyms for disco

my favourite thing this year, sounds like the roots and...some ace soul/reggae crossover thing.

Got the Holden remix of Keiron Hebden & Steve Reid - The Sun Never Sets today. Manages to make it even more mental.

Also been enjoying Kathy Diamond - Over. It matches her previous efforts (All Woman & Sunshine) with a powerful vocal and wicked production from Maurice Fulton, this time going for old school house with hammond organ.

Great bouncy crazy rock and roll

I've been listening to a few Gui Boratto tracks from Chromophobia; real nice stuff. Got his record on order.
Also, it came out two years ago, but I just discovered them last week: Pivot, can't stop listening to Make Me Love You.

s.a.l., so the new MM is a good one? I've heard real mixed reviews about it...

Yep I'd rate it. Has a similar feel to the last album in terms of the tone of the record, but is more. Which I suppose is what I'm chasing in a follow up. Some outstanding tracks

Definitely the new Amy Winehouse...and i found a Hot Chip remix of "Rehab" that is killer. Also, i know its from a few months back, but John B.'s "Electrostep" is pretty badass. Oh, and fer sure The Good, The Bad & The Queen.
