Mew - Visuals. Another stunner from the best band in the world. Maybe not quite as good as + -, but still utterly fantastic. This band can do no wrong. Well, except for No More Stories, which was mostly wrong.
I was not aware that this was out, not that I really care, I did not care too much for what I heard off +/-. Oh well, I always have Frengers and GHK.
Hooffoot - Hooffoot. Mindblowing kosmigroov fusion that sounds straight out of 1972 but was actually recorded in 2014. Ken pushed this on me and I expected it to be decent but not much better, since modern jazzrock usually doesn't do much for me, but I was floored. Highest recommendation to jazz fans!
How does this compare to Fontanelle?
Obliveon - everything. Well, not the demos, although I have them. Just the studio albums, and I even gave the best-of a spin for giggles. It's actually a well-curated collection that fairly represents all the eras of this underrated band, so anyone looking to give them a shot could do worse than spend an hour with Greatest Pits. Nemesis remains my fave, but Cybervoid is close behind. I wonder if Pharaoh could afford a Pierre Remillard mix?
Where is the CS/Pharaoh Obliveon 7"?
Tears of Euphony - Progression Sadness Death, In Na'túra. Great one-man melodic death metal from the late 90s. In dire need of reissue. I've been trying to acquire these discs for like 10 years, since John Frank turned me on to them. I finally succeeded. Go me?
Hook a brutha up, sir!
