Album #175: bdrmm – Bedroom

I’m not sure about these bands that leave the consonants out of their names. Whether PWR BTTM and the allegations against them have soured it for me I don’t know. Anyway, names aren’t everything and I like what I’ve heard from bdrmm previously, so let’s give it a go.

Album #173: Bob Dylan – Rough and Rowdy Ways

In what is probably an all-time first for the UK album chart, the top two positions are currently occupied by two men with a combined age of over a century and a half. Just ahead of Neil Young at the top spot is songwriting legend Bob Dylan, with an incredible 39th studio album of a career spanning nearly 60 years.

Album #168: Moscow Death Brigade – Bad Accent Anthems

I’ve said before on this blog that I sometimes think European bands should sing in their own language rather than write and sing in non-native English. Seemingly taking that criticism and owning it are Russian punk/hip-hop crossover band Moscow Death Brigade on this second album Bad Accent Anthems.

Album #167: Pottery – Welcome to Bobby’s Motel

After a couple of very decent LPs last year, I’ve been looking forward to the debut album from zany and funky indie-rockers Pottery. Here it is, and it somehow feels like the perfect soundtrack to being in the midst of both a heatwave and a pandemic. It’s exuberant and danceable, yet surreal and nonsensical at the same time.
