I'm staggered by the press attention that Loyle Carner record is getting.

It's bang average. I've read reviews saying that his poetry will floor you. The Kate Tempest record says more in half a verse than the first 6 tracks on that record. Average flow and bland, predictable production too.

Completely agree. Skinny man was producing better stuff in the late 90's and never got a mention.

There's one of his tracks where he coughs at the beginning that annoys me no fucking end as well. 6music love him for some reason.

Honestly have no idea how much press he's getting. If you're taking this into account when listening to him maybe it's having an affect. A few of his songs come up on my Discover Weekly playlist and they are good, album is a good listen too.

I like that living abroad has left me with no clue about what people are saying about bands, this site aside. Basically just listen to what sounds good to me, no other factors can really affect it!

I've spent the entirety of today listening to the Julie Byrne album so lovely.

I'm not normally a fan, but I enjoyed the Ryan Adams album. The Lupe Fiasco album sounded pretty solid too, although nothing like Tetsuo + Youth which is a masterpiece

got the super special ryan adams box set for prisoner on pre-order so I'm waiting for that to come out before I listen to the album.

One which won't be particularly well know in these parts is lil lost lou. She's supported pete in the past and used to be my old landlady. She's got her album coming out in April, which I'm well excited about. Its been about 10 years in the making so its good to see she's got her shit together and will have it released this year.

New (guitar free) Mountain Goats album, Goths, out in May - and I'm not sure there'll be a better song title than this all year:
