So Glad To Meet You, Angeles – 01/04/12

Another Sunday and another 2 hours packed full of great music (well I like to think so anyway!). This weeks show was partly inspired by an article on the music site Drowned In Sound regarding the year 1997 and what a great year it was in music. If you don’t believe me then check out the original article here : https://drownedinsound.com/in_depth/4144688-no-surprises-15-classic-albums-of-15-years-ago. And if you need further proof then there is a 1997 spotify playlist that I’ve put together with 51 reasons why 1997 was an amazing year for music.
On the new track front this week we had the rather excellent new track from Japandroids, The House That Heaven Built, taken from their second album entitled Celebration Rock which is due in June. If this track is anything to go be the album will be just as good as their debut Post-Nothing, which if you haven’t heard then I implore you to buy it! Also this week from out of nowhere sprang a new track from Dirty Projectors called Gun Has No Trigger, this looks to be from a forthcoming album but there doesn’t appear to be any further details at the moment.
My love affair with the new Shins album continued this week, after seeing a lot of the new songs performed live the album has finally clicked and has been pretty much welded to the 33RPM stereo this week.
The rest of the playlist was made up of new albums that I’ve been listening too lately (Royal Baths, Whistle Peak), and some old favourites, a special mention goes to Orbital as I’ve been revisiting their discography preparing for what I hear is their return to form album Wonky.
