So it’s a couple of days until the end of this month and I guess, pretty close to the half way point of this year! Today’s post are a few of my own music highlights! No dragging it out, I’m calling the best or my most fave album of the year at half way:
Feral by RVG
I think, the drip feeding or building up to the main release kind-of worked on me for this one because they have been putting out new songs/videos since late last year and I guess, it gives the act more time on other tracks, if everything isn’t ready all at the same time, if that’s what they’re are doing? Here are all the video clips, if you do like that kind-off thing too?
It’s nothing totally ground breaking new musically but what is at this point? It’s pretty much just wicked great Aussie indie rock album! I’ve got a copy of it I can hold in my hand which been a little tricky at times in 2020, and it when in my multi-disc CD player were everything else keeps changing, I’ve not taken this out get yet! Also online, when looking at my old last.fm profile the other day, it’s my most played new album there! Reading into the album title way more, 2020 has been a pretty “feral” year so far too! So please check out RVG‘s Feral, if you’ve not yet?
I’m not made playlist of songs or top ten of albums this time but here’s a few other catalogers I’m going to cover:
My fave/the best stand alone 7″ single/video at mid-way point of 2020 is: Tropical Fuck Storm‘s Suburbiopia
My fave/the best live album at the half-way point of 2020 is: The Drones‘ LIVE Vol. 5 The Tote Melbourne 29/05/16
My fave/the best old stuff which isn’t really a reissue because almost all wasn’t released before but else do you call it? At the half-way point of 2020 is: The Job by Use No Hooks
My fave/the best soundtrack album at mid-way point of 2020 is: ZEROZEROZERO by Mogwai
My fave/the best EP at the half-way point of 2020 is: Rarities by HTRK
My fave/the best cover at mid-way point of 2020 is: Before Too Long by Alex Cameron (written by Paul Kelly)
So that’s just a huge pile of Aussie acts, is anyone out there really surprised by that? Oh, nope it isn’t, it’s a Scottish band who won my soundtrack award show prize! What do you think about all those? Have you listened to all these yet? Gotta ask, what’s your own fave/best release/s of this year, so far?
