Italia 90 has a couple of big tunes but overall nothing special.
I thought Murder Capital was bland. I remember liking the debut but this has no balls.
SuperGaz is winning 2023 still so far.
I have to agree. About The Murder Capital record, I wasn't overly keen on first listen, but I've enjoyed it more on subsequent listens. Not saying it's an amazing album or gonna be the best of 2023 but I dig the whole vibe. Not as loud and ballsy as the first one but thats okay!
2023 is almost certainly gonna be Titch's Year of the Jazz with notable efforts already.
Marcus Strickland Twi-Life - The Universe's Wildest Dream
Lakecia Benjamin- Phoenix
Andrew Wasylyk- Parallel Light
Kit Downes, Sebastian Rochford- A Short Diary
Kawashima/Mochizuki/Henritzi- Chinmoku wa Ishikure ni Yadoru Bouryoku
Ivan the Tolerable- Black Water/Brown Earth
Nostalgia 77- The Loneliest Flower in the Village
Otherwise enjoying these. The C.I.A. is Ty Segall and his missus. A fine noise.

The Waeve album made me quite angry this morning. No one needs a Graham Codon lounge pop album FFS. He doesn't have the voice or the tunes for it.
I thought this was a bit harsh on first listen as the production is nice and some other stuff. I felt like I'd listened forever and turns out I was at the end of track 3 with hours left to go. Off you fuck. 2023 is turning into a real stinker of a year for Blur. Rowntree and Coxon both releasing absolute mush and they've barely sold a ticket for the second night at Wembley. A lot of pressure on The Gorillaz album to turn the tide.

The new Young Fathers record is officially a banger. As someone who has followed their career for 15 years, this is the kind of endorsement that will mean a lot to the band*. It's just tune after tune on the first half. Tails off a bit at the end. Hopefully I'll convince my Mrs to let me out the house long enough to see them live in a few weeks.

I'm obsessed with a garage rock/power pop record by a guy called TEE VEE REPAIRMANN from Australia. I'm not sure anyone else will feel the same way I do about it but anyway, it's like crack to my ears.
That, SuperGaz & the new Go! Team, other than that it has been a real slow start to 2023 for me album wise.
