Though I tried as I did, I missed a bunch. Here’s a few more releases from last year…
My friend Pete turned me onto Ball. They sound kinda like Black Sabbath, My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult and Riverbottom Nightmare Band decided to form a supergroup.
Found this one and the next via Discover Weekly. “When You’re Depressed” is Go-Kart Mozart’s first new track in 5 years, and I’ve apparently been living under a rock and didn’t even know Lawrence was still making music after he stopped doing Felt records.
Asger Techau’s “Stick In The Mud”, from his “Waves” EP, sounds like a missing track from The Fixx’s “Shuttered Room” album, which is a gorgeous thing to sound like. I knew nothing of him before I heard it, but apparently he’s been making music for a quarter century, both solo and with his band Kashmir, in Denmark. Never, ever, ever let anyone anywhere try to tell you that they’ve heard all the great music there is to hear. There is virtually no end to it if you just keep looking and listening.
