If Alasdair was in charge of the Mercury Music Prize Shortlist

July 23, 2008

Well, yet again, another largely rubbish shortlist (with the exception of In Rainbows). Not that I really care, but it was in the news and gives me something to write about). So, here’s my list of the best British albums of the past year:

(in no particular order)

Portishead – Third

Radiohead – In Rainbows

Róisín Murphy – Overpowered

Richard Thompson – Sweet Warrior

Porcupine Tree – Fear the Blank Planet

Richard Thompson – Sweet Warrior

Nostalgia 77 – Everything Under the Sun

Kylie Auldist: Just Say – Alasdair’s Tip for CD of the Summer

July 21, 2008

Kylie Auldist » Tru Thoughts artists

Just thought I’d give this album a thumbs up. It was an impulse buy from Tru-Thoughts’ MP3 net shop (shock horror – I never usually never buy mp3s. Kinda wish I had the cd now). Anyway, I thought it was ok for an afternoon listen. Then i quite liked it on my second listen. And now, several listens later, it’s probably my cd of the summer. It’s nothing fancy, just good old fashioned soul/funk done well. Tight grooves from The Bamboos, good vocals (Kylie’s vocal range is about the same as James Browns’ singing range). Good songs, and happy vibes 🙂 And a lot more grounded than the sheer craziness of PlantLife’s new album (which is great, but mad).

Nuff said.
