The IPTOS Fifty Favourite Albums of 2013

Trimming down the list has been harder than ever this year, which is one reason I did a separate post about my favourite metal releases meaning I can fit more into my regular 50! I am not doing any ranking this year because I honestly can’t put any of these albums slap bang at the […]

Time for a new Spotify playlist and today’s theme is “Space” decided by the Brakes track coming up on shuffle this morning. So here are an hour or so’s worth of space themed/inspired tracks, from the space rock of Hawkwind and Monster Magnet to the shoegaze and dreaminess of Slowdive and Eluvium. Ladies and Gentlemen […]

Fat […]

The Mostly Armless Top 50 Albums of 2010 Part Two (30 – 11)

30. LaFaro – LaFaro I saw these guys supporting And So I Watch You From Afar at Fibbers in York earlier in the year and they really tore the place up! Hailing from Belfast, they have similarities to The Jesus Lizard with their chugging riffs and mangled vocals. On the track “The Ballad of Burnt […]
