Hex Enduction Hour is a great album and I love "spoilt victorian child". The Fall are one of my best discoveries of 2011


Great news, Hito!!

Hex is regarded as a classic.

If you haven't already got them get a hold of Grotesque, Slates, Room To Live, Dragnet and Live At The Witch Trials. Early Fall really is joyous!!!

Thurston Moore, Demolished Thoughts

Sonic Youth, SYR 9: ‘Simon Werner a disparu’ bande originale du film


Loved both of these. The SYR particularly.

Can't wait for Lee's new LP (I'm not sure when it's out).

Grotesque and This Nations Saving Grace are my favorites, with TNSG being the best Fall album from start to finish, IMO.

"New Face In Hell" and "Pay Your Rates" from Grotesque are wonderful.

Re: Best music of 2011

I didn't listen to much from 2011 if anything. I was busy catching up with the past and I'm still doing the same thing but maybe one of my new years resolutions will be to read the online zines and hear the new releases each Tuesday. and then quickly get ill. With such low expectations I'm sure to hear something pleasing.

Re: Best music of 2011

I guess that's why I was being so facetious. There was REALLY a significant piece of music from 2011 that people will be listening to a hundred years from now...and it was Lady Gaga. She tries to make it exciting at least in her presentation.

I like that. Thanks for introducing me to this. I don't know who John Martyn is.

Oh, I'm not much help here. I can't seem to think of a single 2011 album I've bought this year (although I've been hinting to relatives so should get one or two for Crimbo). I've been looking at everyone's lists and there are several I want and lots on my 'Must Investigate Further' list.

Thought this might be of interest to some of you - the people at Rough Trade usually know there stuff better than most:

Harold, I must thank you. I checked out the #1 album on the RT list. It's by Josh T. Pearson, and it's really quite stunning. Better though is an album he released with his old band 'Lift To Experience'. Just brilliant!
