Five albums to listen to for the month of June

Gil Scott-Heron - I'm New Here - His Johnny Cash style dying album, dirty, great poetry as expected and old man hip-hop as intended. Never too many cello loops.

Dengue Fever presents Electric Cambodia - Rocking underground 60's punk funk pysch from the sweaty armpits of Pol Pot's regime.

Serge Gainsbourg - Histoire de Melody Nelson - French sleaze guitar album about running over a nymphlet and seducing her back to health. It is still so sexy.

The Moles - Untune the Sky - Australian try everything once rock band from the 90's. Never got famous, sounds like The Smiths if Morrissey took drugs, but cooler.

The Doors - The Doors - Classic rock album. The End is one of the most amazing songs.

Five albums to listen to for the month of May

LSD March - Constellation of Tragedy. Delicate Japanese psychedlia that never builds to the ridiculousness of what the band's name might suggest. 

Fela Kuti - Gentleman. Beautiful afrobeat depicting the silly idea that Nigerian men should dress in western clothes.

Os Mutantes - Os Mutantes. A psychedelic Brazilian odyssey, filled with obsessive musicianship, Brazilian humour and political shards against the military coup that fucked Brazil for over 20 years.

 Marc Ribot Y Los Cubanos Postizos - The Prosthetic Cubans. A faux Latin jazz album by the former Tom Waits guitarist from the Rain Dogs-era. Great guitar lines!

 Jesus and the Mary Chain - Psychocandy. Loud and intense shoegaze from Scotland.

"He is a classic case of turning vegetarian to follow the trend"

Good, I wish more would.

Hopefully people will follow these trends too; pacifism, environmentalism and learning about the world we live in, literature, sex before marriage, reason, questioning organised religious institutions and their motives. And other shit like that.
