    I've not heard their stuff beyond the 80's, but you're right. Only all the bands you mention are the equivalent of vibrant blue, yellow, red, purple, etc. I found that The Cult's mix made them "brown". Just a dull mix of the lot, only with a lead that sounds so Queen at times it's unreal.

    Obviously "she sells sanctuary" makes them God-tier though :D

    ^Not a fan, then?
    I was properly into them in the 90's.
    I'll admit that they've churned out their fair share of blandness and mediocrity over the years,, but when they get it right, they get it right!

    Let's face it though, you probably think "Nyub-nyub" is a good lyric... ;)

    There it is!
    I wondered how it'd be before you dragged that up again. As it turns out, not long at all :)

    I'm only likely to post in one topic a week, but each time, you know it's coming ;)

    Just bought Galactic Empire's début album. It's a "metal" album of covers of Star Wars music.

    It's more fantastic than you can image. @davidm will appreciate it I reckon, but not @Howie due to a lack of Ewoks and metal bikinis :p

    ^You know as well as I do that if an Ewok strutted on and thrashed out an epic guitar solo, then that video would be even better than it already is.
    You know it.

    I've recently been getting back into Vulfpeck. Great stuff for those into old school funk.

    Stuff I've listened to recently and like...
    Sampha - mostly just this track, which is sort of depressing and comforting at the same time.


    Ola Kvernberg - Been really into Norwegian music recently for no apparent reason, and Todd Terje's* remix of Mechnical Fair introduced me to Kvernberg, who is a sort of jazz-ish strings composer. It's an atmospheric slow burn type of music.


    Mai Lan - To stop looking super serious, this track is fab! (there's also Technique, which is :emoji_zipper_mouth:ing weird, but I kinda love it)


    *Thanks to @Sandman for introducing me to Todd Terje :p

    Just got Sampha's album and I already love it at first listen. He has a great voice that is very soulful but not too showy, and the production is spot on. My favourite track so far is probably the one @jayjay mentioned.

    Other albums I've enjoyed lately include Solange's 'A Seat at the Table', Bowie's 'Blackstar', Anderson Paak's 'Malibu', 'Chaleur Humaine' by Christine and the Queens' and the new A Tribe Called Quest album.

    Welcome to the first in a (very) occasional series of teasingly topical, (very) vaguely, coaster-related tracks.
    Coaster tracks, geddit?


    Trivia - That front man is Gem Archer, who went on to be in Oasis. True fact.

    Loving Sampha's new album, jayjay! If you haven't played it through then it's worth a go when you have the time.

    I've gone back onto The White Stripes at the moment. I just love that signature heavy hitting Bass/Drum rhythm. This one is a lesser known track, with all the catchiness and rock necessary to make a good White Stripes song!

    This is a great time to be alive if you're into big roomy neo-80s synthpop

    If you like slating other people's taste in music, I'm running a "music swap" game over in Forum Fun. Gonna be fun. ( I'm aware some people ignore FF and I probably should've put it here first ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)

    M83 - Oblivion. Amazing song for an amazing movie, with an amazing singer (Norwegian singer Susanne Sundfør)

    Thought people should know that Hellfire (Disney's best song ever) is fab as a metal cover.

    Recently been giving Lenny Kravitz a listen, and although his albums are not entirely consistent in sound, he has a lot of great tracks.

    Fly Away is one of my favourites and is very memorable and popular. Lots of great funky bass and a catchy chorus to boot.

    More stuff I've been enjoying lately
    Temples - Volcano: I've spammed this album everywhere because it's fab and seriously slept on. A blend of neo-60s psychadelia and synth rock with some very catchy hooks. Like a poppier version of Tame Impala


    Blanck Mass - World Eater: Not what I'd usually go for. Dark, highly textured drone/post-rock productions. Opens with a phenomenal one-two sequence of tracks: A demented fairground music box amps up the aggression into Rhesus Negative (linked) which is nine minutes of pounding, boiling anger and noise.


    And finally, my favourite Norwegian ice queen and current obsession is back with a new album. Get hyped for more Susanne Sundfør! Gonna be more classical and arty but if it's got another Memorial in it, I'm all ears.
