  1. For me, the cost of living rises actually make festivals seem much more appealing and even greater value for money. Especially if they have several acts on the line up that i want to see. I would start to prioritise them over gigs if/when the time comes.

    No you’re right, it was this week! It really is an excellent album. A highlight so far on a ridiculously strong day of releases.

    Wonder if people are getting tickets just in case it’s their last tour. With Will going, and WE have a sober feel throughout, I have an awful feeling that they might call it a day soon. They’ve achieved it all and would be justified in wanting to try new things at this stage of their career.

    New Bear’s Den album out today too .. almost missed that! May has been a superb month for new releases already.

    An artist who has totally slipped by me and had a new album our last week - Ethel Cain. She is great and can see a few people on here being a fan of her:

    Yeah I’ve been playing this all weekend and i’m loving it now. Think initially I just didn’t connect with the strange song titles (parts I and II etc), and the strange ordering and placement of the tracks, but now I’m used to those I’m all in with it now. Can’t wait to see some of them live added to their already incredible setlist.

    Definitely agree with this. Their run of Funeral / Neon Bible / The Suburbs puts them in a very elite club in terms of top quality output, and we can’t really judge their new albums against that level. Like others have said, it’s probably a 7.5/10, which is still a solid album for an exceptional band - but the best we’re going to get from them these days is certainly in their live shows, and thankfully they are showing no decline in those yet.

    Yep - add in Belle & Sebastian, Sharon Van Etten and Sigrid to that list and it’s the best new album release day I can remember in a long, long time.

    Well … I bloody enjoyed that new Bloc Party album (but I am a self-proclaimed fan boy). A few ‘silly’ songs on there, but largely a sound and style more aligned with their earlier work. On first listen, ‘Of Things Yet to Come’ is their best song since 2007.

    The Lazy Eyes debut is great for any psych-pop fans. Really good stuff.
  11. Thanks - didn’t realise that! Assuming it’s too late for todays sale now but I’ve done it just in case!
  12. Yeah - also not familiar with how the Ticketmaster presale works. Is this something you need to pay for?
  13. 1. Yumi Zouma - Present Tense 2. CMAT - If My Wife New I’d Be Dead 3. The Mysterines - Reeling
  14. What’s everyone’s thoughts on the current, and final, Peaky Blinders series? Wasn’t expecting much after it dropped off in the previous few seasons, and this one has certainly been ‘slower’ in terms of action etc, but I think it’s actually been better for that - I’ve really enjoyed the story line and am looking forward to see how they wrap it all up tonight … until the film(s) of course.
  15. Why would they put Morrissey on top of the Pyramid?

    Well the Chilli’s album is at least listenable, not a classic, but certainly not horrific - but I just can’t see me giving it many more plays. On the other hand, new Pillow Queens album is bloody fantastic.

    New single is great, and it’s set me back up on another binge of their albums after not listening for a while. My word, what a band. And, we all agree that Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels) is the greatest album opener of all time don’t we?

    Had no idea there was a new Pete(r) Doherty album out today! Off to give that a listen now.

    The new Yumi Zouma album is sounding great on first listen. Just love this band and their sound - hoping I grow to love this as much as I did with Truth or Consequences.

    I can’t complain with that comeback at all .. it’s everything I hoped it would be. Still the best band out there, for me.
  21. https://www.nme.com/news/music/the-nationals-new-album-has-a-classic-sound-with-a-lot-of-energy-3179079 Yes. Please.
  22. Very strong line up - can’t see too many who were (stupidly) waiting for the line up putting theirs back into the pot.

    CMAT album is very, very good. On to Band of Horses next.
  24. Well today is the day … is this thread a wrap now then? This, plus the original thread, has been some journey!
