In Blog by rabbleLeave a Comment

I don’t know how I came up with these 5. 2017 has been a pretty spectacular year for music, if you ask me. So, not sure if these would be my top 5 if you asked me tomorrow, but I’ve tried to include a wide variety of genres, in keeping with the schizophrenic nature of my show Lankum – The Turkish Reveille (Rough Trade) For me, this is the absolute … Read More

Johnny Marr & Maxine Peake – The Priest (Not On Label) Johnny Marr directed a short film about homelessness in central Manchester. The words are a first hand account written by a homeless man in Edinburgh.The combination of Marr’s music & Maxine Peake’s delivery of the words is extremely powerful. Essential viewing & listening. Sissy feat Radie Peat – Sail & Rail (Not On Label) I couldn’t put any actual … Read More

I actually didn’t listen to a lot of new music this year outside of work so my choices are a bit coloured by that! I got really obsessed with Kelela’s new album and Noname’s album and I saw Soulé play at EP and think she’s a really fun/is going to do really well. Kelsey Lu – Dreams Avalon Emerson – 2000 Species of Cacti Kelela – LMK Noname – Diddy … Read More

Jon Hussey – Dark Motif (RLSD) Jon Hussey’s well-overdue vinyl debut, broken meandering acid with a really nice thick atmosphere. Dublin’s own RLSD pressing more great stuff. Schacke – Future Not Materialized (Ectotherm) Some subtler techno rhythms at a proper boshing tempo with lovely soft melodies and a bittersweet mood. A great cross between a few different buzzes, released on Mama Snake and Courtey’s label Ectotherm. Stanislav Tolkachev – Yes, … Read More

Holler’s Best Of 2017

Reddy: Way too chaotic in our approach to tunes to do this with any sense of due diligence. So, the pair of us decided to split things up and use a simple rule, it had to have been aired on the show and as long as it was new to us, then that was fine too. Touch Absence – Lanark Artefax (Whities) Beardy: Lanark takes familiar sounds but instead of … Read More

Caterina Barbieri – Gravity That Binds (Important Records) The closing track off the Italian composer’s album is majestic, as is the whole album really. Patterns of Consciousness takes a somewhat simple idea of following in repeating a series of motifs over an album as a whole to create a patchwork of patterns that fuse and separate, dousing the listener in a catatonic stupor one moment before being ruptured out of … Read More

James Holden and the Animal Spirits – Each Moment Like The First (Border Community) It’s been a pleasure to see James Holden’s sound and approach evolve over the course of his three LPs. The fact that much of his new album was recorded live completely blows my mind. I’ve never seen anyone integrate live instrumentation and electronics with such proficiency and flair. One of my favourite artists at the absolute … Read More

  Wino Wagon – Teen Romp Hoe Down – Absolutely Wino (Wah Wah Wino) “We’re leaving school / I’ll miss my friends / we partied hard / but now its the end”. Very gas number from the Absolutely Wino Comp. RA described it as a “boozy ode to camaraderie”, right up the Bukeepsie alley. Davy Kehoe – Short Passing Game -Short Passing Game (Wah Wah Wino) Another one from the … Read More

  Yves Tumor – Limerence (PAN) Just a beautiful track that conveys such loss and hope. Bibio – Phantom Brickworks 3 (WARP) A track that could easily stand next to anything on Select Ambient Works Vol Jlin – Calcination (Planet Mu) What an album! Calcination is probably the most sparse and chilled track on there. When the vocal samples kick in they never fail to give me chills. Bicep – … Read More
