Finally.... the delayed "Recorded Live via Facebook steam" new Neil Finn album.

It's quite sombre - brittle but lovely melodies abound.

It will need a few listens, no doubt.

My current obsession is this videogame that I can't buy or play because I don't own the console needed or a PC. I've been watching lots of playthroughs of it and everything about it is wonderful. It's essentially a 16-bit era sidescrolling shooter but with a highly detailed 1930s cartoon aesthetic. Everything's hand-drawn, the music is a proper jazz band replicating the style of the time, there's that lovely film grain over everything.





Forget Halo, Forza, or Gears of War. This is the videogame that has made me regret getting rid of my Xbox One. The music is a good substitute until a PS4 (unlikely) or Mac (quite likely) version comes out.

Every time I dig out these old Ultravox! albums, they slap me around the face with how fresh they sound.

I don't think I've heard a black metal band this weird and extreme since... the band from my previous post. Or Wold. This is so loud and pummelling it's almost relaxing.There's also plenty of dark ambient crackling and droning which is genuinely relaxing too, at least compared to everything else here.

First song is kind of crap, but this sounds so good once you get past that.

Nice textures and all but this lacks the punch and dynamism of their first three albums, even when the songs themselves are about a quarter of the length. They're definitely getting old. Only the final song here manages to reach the heights of what they were doing 15 years ago.

Good man.
I reckon your Boulez trumps my Pintscher (although I've seen him in concert here!)

Feels like the orchestra is trying to help the piano to say something...
