What's Spinning January 2022

Happy New Year to all!

Live At Neues Gewandhaus Leipzig

Here we have an electronic group playing with a small orchestra at Gewandhaus Leipzig in Germany. The atmosphere is almost intimate and the music portrays the full depth of life. Happy New Year, may your wishes come true and may you be healthy!

Blackwater Holylight

Doom Metal . Progressive Rock
Four young women created this contradictory masterpiece. It is their third album. The guitar sounds are borrowed from doom metal and yet they are far from it. They are ostensibly comforting and definitely not at the same time. The voice creates associations of fragility and tenderness, the instrumentation is sparse. When listening deeper into the intent, heavily veiled and dangerous violence appears.

My first record love affair this year.

Ahh, wonderful Ben, I’m happy to hear! :smiley:

The Joshua Tree

Released 35 years ago ‘The Joshua Tree’ is a landmark album of an extraordinary band. We may think of Bono what we want, the music rocks. On this album they get so much right. The music is almost intimate and can fill stadiums at the same time. Sound and composition have aged well and could even be contemporary. It is easy to imagine U2 will be covered in popular music history books a century from today. Enjoy your re-spin!

The Slow Show - Lust and Learn


Thank you so much, Jim. What a delightful album.

Their music and also the band name made me think of ‘The Slow Readers Club’. It turns out both bands are from Manchester. And they are not in the Qobuz list of similar artists. Take that, recommendation engine! :boom::boxing_glove:

Shoegaze . Post Rock
Warm waves of beautiful, floaty music washing over us. When we are sad, after enjoying this album we will probably be less sad.

Productive Disruption
Deaf Club

Noise Rock . Hardcore
Want to start the year with a breath of fresh air? OK, it’s more than that. 22 minutes of really blowing your head off. Just lovely. The mind after a small tsunami sweeping some rubble from last year away.

This track is (finally) included on the 20th Anniversary Edition (Bandcamp)
