theDuke | 5605 comments Hello and welcome to the first round of the return of Cream of. It's that time of year again, to listen and judge on what new music we've all been listening to, over the past 11 months or so.

Rules as per usual....so if there are any new nominators that would like to join...here's a basic recap on rules:

Pick a new song released in 2018 by any artist or band you enjoy this year, and add it to the list with a suitable You Tube link or similar (bandcamp, soundcloud etc). Songs must not be reissues or reworked existing songs, and only one song from an artist/band may be included in any one round at a time. However you can nominate another song by a previously nom'd artist/band in further rounds as we progress, if you wish. There'll be a round or two that'll include reissues towards the end of the run.

After the nominations phase is completed, i'll create a playlist link and post it on here, & i'll stipulate how many votes per voters will be allocated (you don't have to use all of them, but points awarded must equal the number of votes cast). You lot then listen to the playlist, and vote for the songs you favoured the most, in order of top favourite downwards.

Please make sure you refresh the page before casting your votes, as there is a bit of a time delay on here & check that you haven't clashed with another voter at a similar time...so refresh, refresh and...refresh folks! :)

Best put the name of the last voter showing 'After ....:', so if there are any discrepancies, hopefully somebody will spot it and sorted it out!

I think that basically covers it..so let's get on with it then.......me...i'm still looking to bulk up my wee list....still!

But here's my first one to be kicking things off with...released a few weeks ago from their forthcoming album in February..

Oh...and i'm slightly cheating with this one, cos it's technically 2 songs joined, but this is the only single avialable currently, this song(s) is joined....so hope folks don't mind...as i ain't got a lot else currently!

Ciao!

Co2018 Round 1:

Blood And Rockets: Movement I, Saga Of Jack Parsons - Movement II, Too The Moon - The Claypool Lennon Delirium

jack parsons was a fascinating individual, and although my interest was piqued, the song quite unpiqued it!

I’m giving points to The Claypool Lennon Delirium, but it actually says that the album isn’t being released until next February. Has this track been officially released this year? If not, then it is technically not valid on this thread.


message 23: by Lez (new)

Lez | 7490 comments Jim, I clicked on the Amazon listing and
found this:

‘South Of Reality, The Claypool Lennon Delirium’s epic sophomore album might be just the antidote this sick world needs. Music so potent it could repel an asteroid impact from space. These seasoned warriors of psychedelia have crafted timeless songs that may as well be chiseled in stone.

Les and Sean both spoke to Rolling Stone about the record and released the first song from the record, Blood and Rockets.’

I suppose strictly speaking, my Anna Meredith is dodgy too as I can’t find an actual recording, just YT and a Proms podcast.

Never mind, it’s only a game ! ;-)

Jemma | 795 comments Thank-you Val. The points are for Anna Meredith. On the Ghost album cover - their covers are all like that it’s part of their stage persona so nobody knows who’s who admittingly it’s very weird and satanic but when they sing it’s a bit surprising. 😀

Interesting to know. Thanks Jemma. I'm forewarned that I might like the music behind their intimidating covers!


message 34: by Jemma (new)

Jemma | 795 comments Val - if you`ve a spare half hour a good place to start would be this years album Prequelle. They`ve done a Pet Shop Boys cover of It`s A Sin - it`s brilliant! Dance Macabre is another great song.
I hope to see them at some point work/life permitting of course.
I`ll leave it with you. :o)

theDuke | 5605 comments Right then, a bit late..so let's put this first round to bed then:

A close run thing between several contenders, the winning songs just scraping into double figures!

And the first gold medalist for this year's Co18 is: 'Transient' by Cousin Tony's Brand New Firebird, so congratulations to Val!

With 1 point fewer, the silver goes to 'Window from the Old House' by Traitrs, nominatated by Sera and finally..

a tie for bronze. 'Five Telegrams (excerpt)' by Anna Meredith & 'Witch Image' by Ghost, both garnered a neat round 10 points apiece. It's a close run thing, Meredith got the most voters, but Ghost just pips it with 1 max points to Meredith's nil...so the bronze medal goes to Lez.

Hard luck to Jemma.

Congrats to the first round of winners....hope you enjoyed the tunes, alas i wasn't feeling it with this playlist..so let's see what round 2 brings! :)
