Records that have come out in the last 5 years that you genuinely believe you'll be still loving in 15 years time...

Too many to mention. But if we just go for one each for now then I'll say that this from 2008 is still growing on me five years on. It took a few listens but it's pure genius. Then when you think it can't get any better THERE'S A BLOODY KEY CHANGE!!!!!

The Hospitals ... Sick Bird

I can't find an on-line link for it, but it's my favourite 45 of the last decade or so.

It's on Last.fm - but knowing nothing about last.fm I don't know how to make it so it'll play on here. Maybe someone else can?

If the classic thread is still running in 5 years, this might make it. It's the Humms and Are You Dead.

I wholeheartedly agree with this. It's already a classic in my world.

I don't know if this qualifies as a future classic, but La Luz sound like to me like everything I expected of the Dum Dum Girls, but that they've never quite delivered.

I'm with BJ on Dum Dum Girls (in fact that album seems to still be growing, the whole thing could be a classic) and that Sleepy Jackson track is awesome too.

This lot have got half a dozen classics. Here's one - and it's free to download too.

Sambassadeur - Subtle Changes

Oh yes. One of a number of choices you could have made for the mighty Sambassadeur. Best new band of the last ten years. FACT.

Am I the only one on here at all taken with La Luz? Of all the bands I've posted in the new music forum, I'd have thought that they were the most SXP friendly.

Not sure I'd want to listen to that song in 5 years time but do like the sound of them. Points docked though for only putting out their EP as a tape and mp3; the two formats I'm least likely to want to cough up for.

Just listening to it for the first time. I like it. First listen though so too early to go making calls for future classics. At the moment I'm thinking it would grow on me but not become an all time favourite.

That song is also on a vinyl 45 with Easy Baby (http://vimeo.com/51415474) on the flip.
2nd 45 is released soon.

I've just been reviewing the new single by The High Wire (which is very good by the way) but it made me go and listen to this song again.

It's from their 2010 album The Sleep Tape and it was love at first listen and it's still sounding mind-blowingly beautiful.

When I did my top 30 songs of 2010 this was at number 2. The song to keep it from the top spot was Sandy Dunes by Sambassadeur which you can't really argue with. Anyway, the words "Fucking" and "masterpiece" spring to mind.

Sounds more like a recorder or flageolet than an actual flute, but those are both, of course, part of the fipple flute family; and, no, it doesn't count as a future classic, largely because the Portsmouth Sinfonia have been doing that for over 40 years.
