Bad//Dreems - Cuffed And Collated
From Adelaide and about to make their debut in Britain, this is their new single. Sounds like it ought to remind me of something, but I don't know what.
Faith No More - Superhero
They are back. 18 years since their last album, Sol Invictus is the new one. Out on May 18, this is the second single taken from it.
Courtney Barnett - Pedestrian At Best
This has been around a while now, but I think she's brilliant so you're getting it anyway. The album is the marvellously titled Sometimes I Sit And Think And Sometimes I Just Sit.
Cover Version Corner
The Clash/The Sex Patels - Armagideon Time
An insight into my mind. A band doing bhangra versions of punk classics? Yes. And they're called the Sex Patels? Hell yes. And the album is called Never Mind the Bollywoods... Here's The Sex Patels? Shut up and take my money. The Clash version isn't the original - it is a cover of a Willi Williams track - but was the B side to London Calling.
Outfit - New Air
How to follow a critically acclaimed debut album? Well this isn't a bad start. The new one is out in June and is titled Slowness.
Slug - Cockeyed Rabbit Wrapped In Plastic
Best single title? Could be. Fronted by former Field Music bassist Ian Black, the album, Ripe, is inventive and interesting and really bloody good. Out now.
Sarah Cracknell - On The Swings
Pure heaven. She can do no wrong in my eyes. Her second solo album is due out soon. Red Kite.
Picturebox - Ruth Bakes A Cake
Quirky. This is on an album called The Garden Path which came out in February.
Garden Of Elks - Tomorrow We Are Astronauts
This is ace. They're Scottish and the LP A Distorted Sigh is out now.
The Sums - It's You
To Liverpool now and the new album here is Start At The Finish. They're Peter 'Digsy' Deary's latest outfit.
One Degree of Separation
Heaven 17 - Temptation
New Order - Temptation
Not a tough one today, but any excuse to play that New Order track. I'm fairly sure I don't even like the Heaven 17 one.
The Underground Youth - Morning Sun
This goes back a few years, to 2010 and the album Sadovaya. Still good though.
Moon Duo - Slow Down Low
A delight. Off the album Shadow Of The Sun which came out in February.
Super Besse - J'ai Rien A Foutre De Mon Visage
And finally to Belarus. I think these are ace. This came out in November, their last single to date. More please.
Here that on YouTube:
See you next week.
