    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: AJ DAVILA, OPETH, & JJ

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: AJ DAVILA, OPETH, & JJ

      If you ever came across the explosive sound of Davila 666, you’ll love A.J. Davila’s new album ‘Terror Amor’. He formerly of that band has released one of the best albums of 2014 thus far. https://twitter.com/ajdavilasix The enduring Opeth are back with a new album. ‘Pale Communion’ is definitely one of their best. They know exactly when to crank things up, and slow things down. The Swedish titans take another step forward in their quest for the perfect combination of Prog Rock, Classic Rock, and Metal. http://www.opeth.com/home/ JJ are also from Sweden, but that’s about all they have in ...

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: THE HOT SPROCKETS, LUKE HAINES, & CLAUDIA SCHWAB

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: THE HOT SPROCKETS, LUKE HAINES, & CLAUDIA SCHWAB

      We have three very different albums for you this week. The first is album number two from The Hot Sprockets. Their debut ‘Honeyskippin’ was a joyous affair, and ‘Brother Nature’ brings things to an even higher level. The Hot Sprockets write strong songs that are steeped with echoes from the past; they’ve never made any better than those that make up ‘Brother Nature’.http://www.thehotsprockets.com/ Luke Haines has always done things his own was, whether as part of The Auteurs or throughout his solo career. How does a ‘psychedelic concept trilogy’ sound to you? ‘New York In The ‘70’s’ is part of ...

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – LUCIUS, VERSECHORUSVERSE, & REAL ESTATE

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – LUCIUS, VERSECHORUSVERSE, & REAL ESTATE

    After receiving much love in the U.S last year, 'Wildewoman' by Lucius is getting a European release. Is it hype or is this a special album? Simply put, 'Wildewoman' is a beauty! It's clever, it's catchy, it's retrospective, it's new, and it may well be one of the albums of 2014. http://www.ilovelucius.com/ He used to be in And So I watch You From Afar, but Tony Wright (aka VerseChorusVerse) is walking a different path now. His debut album 'VerseChorusVerse' couldn't be more different from the thunderous beauty of ASIWYFA, but has its own magnetic identity that will spread far and ...

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: MY SAD CAPTAIN, NENEH CHERRY, & WILD BEASTS

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK: MY SAD CAPTAIN, NENEH CHERRY, & WILD BEASTS

    There is a temptation to call 'Best Of Times' an album to listen to in the small hours; those quiet times when you ever vocal phrasing, every guitar chord. What My Sad Captains have come up with on this their third album is a laid back yet confident sound.  There's a strong chance that the masses may miss this, but for those who take the time to listen; they'll hear some truly inspired and brilliant songs. http://www.mysadcaptains.co.uk/ NENEH CHERRY ‘BLANK PROJECT’ Dismiss Neneh Cherry at your peril! ‘Blank Project’ is one of the strongest albums that 2014 has seen so ...

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – HOUSE OF COSY CUSHIONS, ILLUM SPHERE, & SCARLET CHIVES

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – HOUSE OF COSY CUSHIONS, ILLUM SPHERE, & SCARLET CHIVES

    The Dutch/Irish connection of House Of Cosy Cushions has come up with another strong album with ‘Spell’. HOCC was formed by Dutch-English musician and visual artist Richard Bolhuis. So where does the Irish connection come into it? Bolhuis lived in Ireland for many years, and will be back for live dates next month. ‘Spell’ is HOCC’s best work; diverse, clever, and extremely infectious. Illum Sphere is Manchester DJ/Remixer/Artist Ryan Hunn. The wonderfully off-kilter ‘Ghosts Of Then And Now’ is like a bold middle-fingered salute to a lot of what’s going on in music right now. It’s electronic eclecticism at its ...

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – PRIMAL SCREAM, ENEMIES, & THE CHILD OF LOV

    ALBUMS OF THE WEEK – PRIMAL SCREAM, ENEMIES, & THE CHILD OF LOV

    We’ve three gems for you this week, the debut album from The Child Of Love, Enemies’ second long player, and Primal Scream’s tenth studio album. Even getting to the stage where you’re released ten albums is a major achievement these days. ‘More Light’ is strong album, mixing the band’s electronic side with their retro tendencies. ‘Embark, Embrace’ finds Enemies in buoyant form, adding vocals to their mix. If you like their previous album ‘We’ve Been Talking’, you’ll be into this. It’s almost three years since they released their debut, and ‘Embark, Embrace’ sees them making a considerable jump forward. The ...

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

    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 ...
