Riz MC - Englistan
Actor, poet, polymath Riz Ahmed has a new collection out, of which this is the title track. Available as a pay-what-you-like download. Excellent stuff.
Ukepunk - Girl Across The Road
Ukulele and punk - what's not to love? There is a new EP, From The North, but this is taken from the 2014 LP Punk Police.
The Wave Pictures - Slick Black River From The Rain
From last year's A Season In Hull LP. Love em to bits and they play The Parish next month.
Featured album: Stereolab - Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements
1993 saw Stereolab move up into the big leagues and Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements was their first on the majors. Unmistakeable and unmatched.
The Julie Ruin - I Decide
Kathleen Hanna, ex of Bikini Kill, fronts this relatively new band. The new LP Hit Reset is out in July.
Seize The Chair - Secret Sister
New single from the boisterous Sheffield bunch.
The World - Managerial Material
The title track from their new EP which came out on April 1. Double sax, dub guitar. Amazing. From Oakland, CA.
City Yelps - Now
Lo-fi from Leeds, this is off their forthcoming debut LP.
The Blinders - 84
From Donny, but now playing out of Manchester, this is off their debut EP Hidden Horror Dance. The aim, they say, is to be in your face all the time. I'll leave that to you.
Tibet - I'll Put You In My Pocket
'60s inspired rock from their debut EP Fridge.
Stereolab - Tone Burst
The opening track from Transient Random-Noise Bursts With Announcements.
The Ramisko Maki Maki Rocking Horse - And We Will Dance
That's a hell of a name. Ray McCartney is the Ramisko Maki Maki Rocking Horse and last summer's LP was Possessed By The Gods Of Cowbell Oblongata.
Sean Grant and The Wolfgang - Brother
From Northants, off the EP 7 Deadly 7 which is out on May 6.
The Antikaroshi - The Only Witness
Krautrock from Germany - aptly - from their fourth LP, the catchily titled 11 Songs Mostly Written And Played On Wednesday Evenings By A Band Called The Antikaroshi.
Laurence Made Me Cry - Mneme II (Dementio13 remix)
Jo Whitby, aka Laurence Made Me Cry, released the EP Titan's Daughters earlier this month and it's been given the remix treatment. One of them by house favourite Dementio13.
Gerry And The Pacemakers - You'll Never Walk Alone
Dedicated to the tireless seekers of justice. 27 years and maybe now those families can start to grieve.
Here's that on YouTube:
Same time next week? Cool.
