    There's nothing in the thread title or first post which says this.

    This week I bought both this and the latest slowthai album. Both are excellent.

    Yves Tumor - Praise a Lord Who Chews but Which Does Not Consume; (Or Simply, Hot Between Worlds)

    This was the other eagerly awaited release for me for this year. I know there are a few Yves fans on PFM. I came to them fairly late, but I completely love what they do.

    Another hard bunch to describe really - gender fluid, genre fluid, languid, woozy, sexual vocals over this huge soundscape is the best I can come up with.

    Prince goes indie? A latter day Bowie?

    It's a brilliant piece of music, definitely one which will be appearing on best-of-year lists.

    This links to "Echolalia" one of the videos which is slightly less NSFW.

    Album of the year so far is John Cale's Mercy.

    Records I like not made by 81 year olds include Robert Forster's The Candle and the Flame (he's only 65), and Black Country New Road, Live at Bush Hall (collectively the whole band are only about 50).

    ACR - 1982 is promising so far, Daphni - Cherry is good and I’m looking forward to Craven Faults new release.

    In case anyone was mourning the decline of the prog-rock concept album and even wishing for something else to file in the same sealed underground vault as their Magma collection there is HMLTD ‘The Worm’. I landed a signed clear vinyl copy from RT and I have no idea what I make of it. It is a superb sounding record though, really punchy and dynamic.

    I thought Daughter had maybe split up after Elena’s album as Ex:Re, but no…

    Mellow, lush, and atmospheric in a very Daughter way, Stereo Mind Game getting plenty of plays here.

    What's not to like ?...the production . He sounds like a machine...the vocal is so heavily processed that , for me, its rendered unlistenable.

    After appearing on recent Carmen Villain releases, an immersive debut album of field recordings and flute from Johanna Orellana, Las Camelias, Tres Equinas...

    Minimal but melodic. Produced, recorded, and mixed by Carmen; mastered by Helge Sten.

    Looking forward to the Grian Chatten album soon, didn't know it was even in the pipe line. Not been a bad year so far IMO.

    David Brewis - The Soft Struggles is something of a masterpiece. Not heard anything better this year; heartfelt, passion project.

    Been listening to the Skinny Polemebe album quite a bit over the past week or so, it has really grown on me a lot. Definitely on this year's list for me.
