24 November 2015

Me again.

Idles - CHANT
Bristolians post-piunkers pay homage to The Monks. From the new EP MEAT - everything's in capitals - which is out now.

Practical Lovers - Put It Bluntly
These are from Nottingham and while this was originally released as a single in 2011, it also forms part of the new album Agony which is out on Friday.

Last Great Dreamers - Dope School
Back together well after their '90s heyday, they were retro then and nothing's changed. This is the new single and there's an album due soon.

Featured Album
Arab Strap - Coming Down
Arab Strap - I Work In A Saloon
This week, we feature The Week Never Starts Round Here, the debut release from Malcolm Middleton and Aidan Moffatt. Dating from 1996, it still sounds good. "Completely undiluted and free of the self-expectation that came later", said Middleton of it. Coming Down is the opener.

Fat White Family - Whitest Boy On The Beach
The first track taken from the forthcoming second album, Songs For Our Mothers, which is out in January. They're playing Hebden Trades next month too. Should be fun.

Iron Triangle - Glass Shadows
Well someone likes Depeche Mode. Me, more precisely. But that might explain why I like this quite so much. Dan Walsh and Mark Dixon are Iron Triangle and they're from Peckham. Their self-titled EP is out now.

FVC - Jacket On Fire
The FVC in question is Florence van Camerlijk who is from Amsterdam but now based in Hackney. The EP Walking came out last Friday.

The Sneaky Nixons - Thick, Thin And Thinner
Great name. The self-styled rock n roll terrorists are from Liverpool and their new record Sex is out now.

Ratatosk - I Awoke
More Welsh DIY now as we head for Aberdare for some folky stuff. The album Detachment came out in late September.

Featured Album
Arab Strap - The First Big Weekend
The first single taken from The Week Never Starts Round Here.

Josefin Öhrn and The Liberation - Sunny Afternoon
A bit krautrocky, but also in the Lykke Li envelope. Swedish, is Ms Öhrn. The album is Horse Dance and it's out now.

Vieux Farka Touré - Masters Of War feat. Julie Easterlin
Malian songsmith Touré collaborates with American singer Easterlin on the LP touristes which came out in September.

Shunkan - The Pink Noise
We've had a track off the album before, but here's the title track from the New Zealanders LP.

Shift Work - SBFM
The EP Scaled To Fit from Shift Work blew our proverbial socks off. Document I, the new one, loks set to do the same given this track. It's out now.
