    Not many albums left to come out in 2018 now, so, what have been your favourites to come out this year?

    (let us know the genre or even some more in depth info on them n'all if you can)

    Oh, mine is:

    The Fernweh "The Fernweh"

    Recorded in seclusion on the North Yorkshire coast and transporting listeners on musical journey. Three friends, Jamie Backhouse (guitars), Ned Crowther (vocals and guitar) and Oz Murphy (keys/saxophone) gathered to make the album they always knew they could make, based on a pure and profound love for a golden era for British and US folk rock. Wringing every last drop of their combined experience into a cup that overflows with melody, song craft and deeply evocative imagery of a quintessentially British era of ‘mainstream psychedelia’, they are joined by Maja Agnevik (vocals/flute) and Phil Murphy (drummer).

    Melodies and stories inspired by distinctly British, coal-fired version of 60s/70s psychedelia. Layered vocal harmonies, gentle, steam-train percussion and strokes of piano, acoustic guitars and subtle string arrangements are a feature of this sublime and compelling debut. A return journey into Britain’s explosively creative, post-war period. Arriving back in 2018, the band uses such deeply evocative influences to deliver an irrepressible psych-pop-folk non-genre record.

    STAFF COMMENTS
    Andy says: No surprise this is released on The Coral's Skeleton Key label as this is a beautiful evocation of hazy Scouseadelia: early 70's UK folk and gentle psyche combined to glorious, otherworldly effect. Lovely stuff.

    Listen, Can you smell something?
    Blancmange's Wanderlust which is electronic music paired with quirky lyrics at its finest.



    Or Jeff Goldblum's jazz album. Lovely to put on a relax to.

    Or Joe Bonamassa doing rock blues the only way he knows with Redemption.

    This thread made me realise that I haven't listened to a single new album this year. I must be getting old. So I'm listening to Father John Misty's album to make up for it. So far, it's the best one this year.

    Couldn't name a single album that came out this year. Everyone is dead now.

    Must admit, 2018 has passed me by a bit on the new music front. Just given this a listen though and it is fucking ace, right up my street.

    Thanks for posting!

    They’ve had snippets of tracks and tracks coming out through the year but the album only came out last Friday but it’s my album of the year straight away!

    As you said, “right up my street” n’all! I love psych-folk-rock
