    Best New Music of 2018

    I love the Rival Consoles album, it’s definitely one for people who like the new Jon Hopkins record. It’s much more melodic and expressive than his earlier stuff I think. The Nils Frahm one is really good too if a bit austere, Sunson is a great track though.

    No luck on the Bibio @Shoes sorry Not sure that’s a Witney sort of artist. Got a copy of Amorphous Androgynous so quite pleased with that, wasn’t expecting to find it.

    Will do On a similar note, if anyone sees the SE of the new Sleep album and isn’t after it themselves, I’d quite like it

    I have a PM6006 and it is indeed really good.

    My Sound of Vinyl order arrived yesterday. To continue my usual luck with buying vinyl, the copy of Entreat Plus skips and jumps all over the place on both sides of disc one. I haven't had the heart to try disc 2. So that's going back. The copy of Pornography plays perfectly though which is nice. My luck of 50/50 fine/shagged continues.

    @Mentazm What I thought. I was kind of expecting it for RSD stuff, but it's disappointing when it's standard releases by relatively big artists. On the upside the Amon Tobin and FSOL stuff I've bought has all been perfect so far.

    I ordered The Cure's Entreat and Pornography, just waiting for shipping now. Could have ordered loads more. General question: like a lot of others, I'm coming back to vinyl after going towards CDs in the 90s and then digital. Wanted to get back to the physical side of music ownership a bit more, especially since with Spotify I'm buying very little digitally now. My question though is - is quality control of new record pressings just really shit these days? About 50% of the new records I've bought recently have problems - Massive Attack's Mezzanine had a giant scratch across track one, plus loads of skips later. The No Man's Sky OST was FUCKED on all 4 sides, and my copy of Metallica's Hardwired has a few skips too although I'm letting that off a bit as it was a RSD special. I don't remember records bought new in the late 80s, early 90s being this bad, have I just been unlucky?

    10th Record Store Day - 22nd April 2017

    Went to Truck in Oxford after the FSOL and Blade Runner ones. Queued for about an hour, sold out of both. Picked up Massive Attack's Mezzanine on vinyl though so not too disappointed. Nice sunny day for it anyway.

    Elder Scrolls Online

    I'm finding this the perfect low-impact game to play on Vita remote play while baby is snoozing. Just pottering around doing a few quests, some smithing etc. Lovely. Lvl 36 now and haven't even explored all my starting faction's areas or the DLC yet. And not gone anywhere near the PvP yet.

    Battlefield 4

    So's mine, usually. This game's worth making an exception for though

    Battlefield 4

    I went on foot with that tanks bit in the end and took them out with a guided anti-tank rocket of some sort. Anyone who buys this and plays the SP and never touches the MP is demented. Fact. It's the only online shooter ever to get properly under my skin, it's superb. With the different classes, and loadouts and attachments and vehicles and etc etc etc you can pretty much pick your own style of play. And with the maps being so large, every round plays out very differently. And £12 for the all-DLC version is a steal. That's LOADS of content, and some truly excellent maps. I want to go home and fire this up right now, but tiny screaming person says no. They're off staying with Nan in a few weeks though, so I'll be on then

    At this point, presumably his editor's job is very easy, since s/he will have given up doing anything except shouting 'JUST SEND ME THE FUCKING THING SO I CAN GET IT TO PRINT' over and over and over.

    Battlefield 4

    I'll be up for that, subject to wife & newborn letting me near the PS4 Then Hexx can see that players like me are still terrible after many many hours of play Definitely fiddle with aim sensitivity controls for standard and ADS view, finding a setup that works for you makes everything so much better.
