AT HOME & ON THE ROAD, SWINGFEST SPECIAL: PETRELS



Written by Robert Foster

Hey Colossus - Hot Grave

Lead track from probably my favourite album last year - Cuckoo Live Life Like Cuckoo' on MIE. Also maybe the loudest band I've seen live.

 

Brassica - Lydden Circuit

The track I've listened to more than any other since to came out I think. Brassica mastered the last Petrels album and he's the best producer of music I know.

 

Pseudo Nippon - Strangeways

My favourite track from last year and criminally underplayed. It's a great pop song and the arrangement's phenomenal.

 

The Knife - Colouring of Pigeons

I find The Knife massively inspiring in the way that despite how much success they've had they've not got comfortable and keep pushing themselves.

 

Albert Ayler - Spirits Rejoice

Could pick pretty much anything from Albert Ayler - was my gateway into free improv and the tone on his playing is endlessly fascinating.

 

Charlottefield - Clipper

If I could pick one band to reform it'd be Charlottefield - one of the best bands to come out of Britain and completely undervalued while they were going.

 

Sun City Girls - Space Prophet Dogon

Great track from a great band and ever fails to make me feel better. No idea what's being sung but it's joyous and defiant.

 

Audrey Chen - Glacial

One of my favourite cello players. I've seen her play twice and she creates an atmosphere like nothing else I know.

 

Sleater-Kinney - Heart Attack

My favourite band in my teens and a track I've played hundreds of times.

Harley Gaber - The Winds Rise In The North

Only heard this for the first time recently but immediately felt like the kind of thing I'd been waiting to hear forever without knowing it.
