I span the Faye Webster record and thought it was just nice. Cheers and Dream With a Baseball Player the only tracks that stood out a bit.

I’m two years late, but Hannah Cohen’s Welcome Home is wonderful.

Gang of Youths have released an EP, called Total Serene, and it's fucking awesome.

The Angel of 8th Ave is classic them, really bloody good, Asleep in the Back is a much more gentle, ambient song that I really like and Unison is a horn and choir-led twist on their music.

From the band:

Quote:
today we release total serene, and with it, the song “unison”. the track is the first release to feature samples taken from the archives of renowned composer, explorer and recordist david fanshawe. 

in the late 1970’s, fanshawe travelled to the pacific islands and commenced work on a project that was to become the most comprehensive and important collection of indigenous pacific music ever put to tape. his work is invaluable and we’re enormously grateful to his family for their collaboration and their continued work in stewarding this precious and significant collection. you can expect future releases to feature his recordings.

similarly, in early 2020 we traveled to the “polynesian capital of the world” — auckland, NZ — to work with a team of exceptional traditional maori and pasifika musicians, singers and storytellers.

pasifika and maori identity has informed much of the next phase of our work, along with the extraordinary life of dave’s late father, Teleso Le’aupepe.

My friendship group made a playlist cos we're back in fucking lockdown in Melbourne (for the fifth time) and wanted to keep the vibes upbeat. There's been two songs on it that I've been like "I love this song, I've heard it a billion times but I don't know what it's called or who it's by" - More Than This by Roxy Music and Young Turks by Rod Stewart (fuck, the chorus is SO good)

That entire Roxy Music album, Avalon, is so sublime and one of my favorite 80's records.

My dislike for More Than This has actually kept me away from listening to the rest of Avalon.

How anticlimactic.

Yeah, well overdue for an album. Want more than an EP… but an Elbow cover. Consider me very intrigued!

Well, yeah. About as much as Tainted Love.

But unlike that song, I never cared for it.

I don't recall it being overplayed at the time. It wasn't even a Top 40 hit in the U.S.

However, it's been totally overused in commercials the last ten years or so.

I'm not talking about back in the day, I'm talking about the last 20 years of 80s nostalgia and all these staples being played at bars, in clubs, etc.

Some of these overplayed songs don't get old for me; Everybody Wants to Rule the World is just as great as it was 35 years ago.

I know you're just trying to bait me, but it hasn't even been four years since the last record came out. They'll be dropping more new music in the coming months too.

Blinding Lights, as great as it is, owes some thanks to that song.

Arguably Rod Stewart's high point during an extremely lackluster phase of his career.

The last 30 seconds are amazing, I wanted more of that.

Not a huge fan of the band though. I saw them in concert once... I'd seen Roger Waters the night before and was so blown away that I wanted to buy tickets to see his second show, but I had tickets to The War on Drugs and I was going with a friend, so couldn't dog her and sell them off. I regret it. The show was essentially one song lasting for around two hours.

"Under the Pressure" scratches my itch for their music, I don't need anything else.
