Album Man It Feels Like Space Again by Pond (2015)
How lucky was that! Please don't dismiss this album as another OK-ish 'January' album, or label it as frivolous/comedy/kooky, or whatever negative preconception you may have, otherwise you may miss out on one of the most consistently good albums of 2015 so far (early Feb). It's really ace. (Richard)  
Track Teardrop by Jose Gonzalez from In Our Nature  (2007) 
This is a cover of 'Teardrop' by Massive Attack, from the 1998 album Mezzanine. Considering what a massive fan I am of the original, with it's rumbling, dark beats and amazing Liz Fraser (Cocteau Twins) vocals, it begs the question, why bother? Not that this version is bad or anything... (Richard)  
Album Beast Mode (mixtape) by Future (USA) (2015)
9 Tracks, 28 Minutes. Fantastic, in a word. (Richard)  
Track The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (theme) by Hugo Montenegro from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (single) (1968)  
A quick scour of the web reveals that the film itself was released in 1966, two or three years before this single which became a hit in the US and UK, which is a cover version of the original film score. If you've seen Tarantino's 'Django Unchained' you may appreciate just how current this type of sound really is, even though it's nigh on 50 years old. (Richard)  
Artist Demis Roussos
R.I.P. Démis Roussos, who died today, January 26th 2015 at the age of 68, ex-lead singer and bassist of the band Aphrodite's Child. (Richard)  
Track Let's Call It Love by Sleater-Kinney from The Woods (2005) 
Absolutely amazing guitar work and surely S-K's longest track ever at 11:01? Not only that, the next track 'Night Light' is sometimes merged seamlessly with this into a single track, making for a total of 14:40. Very un-Sleater-Kinney-ish. (Richard)  
Album No Cities To Love by Sleater-Kinney (2015)
Another very decent album by Sleater-Kinney, but best of all it bookends their career by another ten years and gets rid of any weirdness in calling 'The Woods' their best album, their previous 'last' album from 2005. It's quite a short album too, so if you're looking for 30-ish minutes if indie, girl-'punk' individuality you're looking in the right place, but it's obviously not their best when compared to the absolutely amazing guitar wig-outs in the The Woods, replete with S-K's best vocals and production qualities too, nor as fresh or raw as 'Call The Doctor' and their other 1990s releases, but it's still a decent listen. Just don't forget to check out S-K's other releases if you like this. (Richard)  
Album Ghost Culture by Ghost Culture (2015)
A very nice listen, not least because James Greenwood is from the UK and references 90s electronic icons such as The Beloved and Ultramarine, but also because the first three tracks are mostly excellent, including the stand-out song 'Giudecca'. The clean and invigorating electronic production continues but the pace slows down, delving into indulgent and perhaps even campy material which negates the good start. A worthwhile effort though with some really memorable moments at the beginning. (Richard)  
Track I Know There's An Answer by The Beach Boys from Pet Sounds (1966)
Wikipedia: "I Know There's an Answer" (additionally released with alternate lyrics as "Hang On to Your Ego") is a song by the American rock band The Beach Boys, taken from their 1966 album Pet Sounds. It is the ninth track on the album. /// In other words, there is no need for 'Hang On To Your Ego' as a 14th track on the album 'Pet Sounds'. A previously added version of 'Hang On To Your Ego' has been removed from the album tracklist, with the votes being transferred across to 'I Know There's An Answer'. (VSAdmin)  
Track Stairway To Heaven by Led Zeppelin from Led Zeppelin IV (1971)  
I guess, if I'd been sitting in that very same room, several decades ago, blitzed out of my head on cannabis while listening to Led Zeppelin IV, instead of Led Zeppelin II, IV would now be my favourite LZ album of all-time instead of II, as well as riding high as the best album of all-time instead of several records by The Beatles. It's a question of what it meant to you at the time, plus the concoction of heady drugs that were pumping through the veins. However, that doesn't help to clarify why STH competes head-to-head with 'Imagine' by John Lennon as the best track of all-time, but just that it's a record loved by more people than me. (Richard)
