Rough Trade Album of the Month Club, August 2015 Pack

A solid selection: Core album: Georgia - Self-titled + bonus cd. 8/10 Good accessible dance music. Innovative at times and fun too. Mac DeMarco - Another One + Bonus cd. 7.7/10 I'm a Mac DeMarco fan so I'm glad I got this one from the club. It's also the first time they've sent me something from the Captured Tracks label. My gripe is that it's only 23 minutes long. The last time I received a mini album was Eugene McGuinness' The Early Learnings of Eugene McGuinness back in 2007. Dornik - Self-titled 7.5/10. This one took ages for me to get but eventually it did and the smooth beats made my hot summer afternoons more tolerable. Coming Up: September: Max Richter or Dam Funk ( i think it will be Max Richter, the club loves piano based modern composition) October - John Grant (yay) November- Floating Points (wow)
