Do we have somewhere for "Oh, look this sounds interesting" type posts?  I didn't think we did, but please correct me if I'm wrong...

Anyway, let's start with a couple of slabs of vinyl that have tickled my fancy in the last few days:

1) Big Front Yard http://www.shagratrecords.com/shagrat_thylacine_BFY.html?fbclid=IwAR0eyNE0n2er59Qe5b2sRKFJRgh0p1Xf6rvygBQSEgW6hyspg6FUbH_4ww0

2) Beth Gibbons (Portishead) taking on Gorecki's 3rd https://bethgibbons.dominomart.com/

Have to admit I have been looking at the Beth gibbons, I have a recording of the Gorecki it is certainly not listen to it if I was feeling emotionally fragile, still an amazing piece of music

  Well, this looks interesting to me: Another survey of UK folk rock but some real obscurities mixed in with the "bigger" names...

I'm furious with myself I've missed the signed version (which was the same price).

There's quite a few similar ones around, but this does look nice...and there are a smattering of unreleased tracks (or versions) on there too.  I'd probably want to see on in the flesh first.

Just noticed there is a new Gong Album on the way - The Universe Also Collapses

Available for pre-order.

Radio edit of one track here https://youtu.be/VQQbIi4Xc5E

Sounds like Daevid Allen singing not sure if they are still using stuff recorded before his death.

I'm really looking forward to hearing the new album from Sam Kelly & Ruth Notman - two of my favourite young artists: http://www.folkwitness.co.uk/album-reviews-2/ruth-notman-sam-kelly-changeable-heart/

Big Big Train have just announced the name and date of their new album. At the same time they have launched a new look website. Smiley

Less folky than the first two albums from what I understand. More of a straight up rock album. I'm looking forward to it but I hope the change of direction is not a mistake.

The single sounds exactly like it's a long lost follow up to Shoot Out the Lights.  Absolutely impossible to dislike, but like most of their material, I can't but help wonder why they are wanting to follow the R&L line quite so slavishly?

They are very rocky live (full band line up obviously). Fronted by two electric guitars, not an acoustic in sight when I saw them.

I'm thinking I might just stop with the debut album, and the ep I have.  I like their sound but I don't really want a more rocked up version.

If you like rocking R&L there's nowt to be afraid of.  One is a direct extension of t'other.

Thanks for the "heads up" PaulB… I've ordered the 2CD issue - going to see them at Rough Trade Brizzle Fri 16th Aug to collect my copy (and get it signed?)  

I saw James and Kami supporting the RT Trio a few years ago and was well impressed then - not just R&L Mk2, though there are similarities & influences, but a fine duo/band in their own right.
