    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – YEAH YEAH YEAHS, FALLEN RULE, & KURT VILE

    We have three Albums Of The Week for your listening pleasure. ‘Mosquito’ is the latest album from Yeah Yeah Yeahs. To say that this has been eagerly anticipated might just be an understatement!

    ‘No Way To Know Why’ is Fallen Rule’s debut album. In the truest sense of the description, this is an album that encompasses the spirit of acts like Jesus & Mary Chain, MC5, and The Brian Jonestown Massacre.



    There is a familiar sound from Kurt Vile’s album ‘Wakin On A Pretty Daze’. This isn’t a criticism, quite the contrary! This is an album that may stick with you for many, many years.
