The Longshot -Love is for losers
The closest Billy Joe has sounded like the Replacements for a long time. Brilliant.
Childish Gambino – This is America
Popping up in an ad break during some Youtube documentary I was listening to at work, I had this circulated in minutes once I’d heard the gunshot and beat drop. An advert for advertisements.
Avalanche Party – Porcelain
Sounding like an early Death in Vegas hanging out with the Stooges, this may be what it sounds like to go into psychosis.
DMA’s – Warsaw
A month on from their Newcastle live show and still have this Crowded house meets the Smith gem stuck on repeat. Not bad for a bunch of baseball hatted hooligans.
Smoove and Turrell – Beggerman
Not sure how I missed this Newcastle-video’d, Northern Soul, banger. Get the rug out, we’re about to cut it.
Tom of Cruise – Pour some sugar on me
Making the job of a rock star look like the best role to aspire to, Cruise does a great job of the best rock meets overtly sexual innuedod anthem.
Michael Jackson – Starlite
Rock stars!? Surely it was better to be a pop star!? If only jacko had kept the name of this belter.
J Hus – Did you see?
Dark and neon-lit, this is what Blade Runner would look like if it was set in modern times and had a story about smoking weed and driving fast cars.
Aerosmith – love in an elevator
Take a very good podcast, through in Steve Tyler, and you’ve got gold. Don’t you wish you were as smart and confident?
Alice Merton – No roots
The things that get played on the radio talk shows between segments…
Terrovison – perseverance
Stand out live performance of the month, The Terrors boys nailed Britrock must be Destroyed. Perseverance was the set highlight.
Wildhearts – 29 x The Pain
Very closely followed by these lads…
Underworld & Iggy – Bells & Circles
The first of 2 new releases by 2 of my favourite 3 dance acts. Underworld stepping in first with this weapon about drugs on planes.
Propellerheads – OHMSS
Followed by the 20th anniversary of the best debut LP of anyone, ever.
Everything Everything – Distant Past
The final track in their Catfish and the Bottlemen support slot. Sounding like an early 90s rave anthem this lit a fire under the crowd for sure.
