Hi Folx...

That time of year again, when I come out of hiding to ask for help on what I've missed in the last year, new releases-wise.

Here's a working list of things I've heard (a few outside the space/kraut/stoner/postrock realm, but not many) - what's obviously missing?

I haven't started to make out my Best of the year list yet, but things I really liked this year include the Camera, The Ganjas, White Manna (again), Black Bombaim, Papir, The Spacelords, sleepmakeswaves, OSC, Polska Radio One (nothing full-length this year, but...) and on...

What're you all listening to?  I haven't paid much attention to the whole HW- and Gong- families, as far as spinoffs and such.  You know, ADavey, Daevid Allen, Nik, Blake (I heard something from a few years ago, Noggi Tor or whatever it was).  Anything good from this lot lately?  
Anything new from ToSHer Steve Bemand (Timelords) due soon?  Their first album was great.

Keith H.
