  1. Just the new Ist Ist album for me today. Their last album was in my top 10 for 2020 so hoping for similar with this one
  2. Liking the sound of this. New Bloc Party album out April 22.
  3. Whilst we're talking about bands from years ago...will be giving the new album from The Darkness a few spins today before I see them on Sunday
  4. I know what you mean about RRC. They seem to lost a lot of energy on this album. Hoping it will grow on me with a few more listens but their sound was so good on their first couple of albums. I wonder whether this is an attempt to break into commercial radio but this latest release is all a bit MOR for me at the moment. Today is stacked for me though with new releases - Red Rum Club, IDLES, The Reytons, Apollo Junction, Pip Blom and Courtney Barnett. Nice weekend of listening there!
  5. Not new - but now officially released on their upcoming Kid A/Amnesia collab...
  6. Really strong month of new releases. Hard to pick a top 3! 1. Biffy Clyro - The myth of the happily ever after 2. Frank Carter and the Rattlesnakes - Sticky 3. Sam Fender - Seventeen going under
  7. All about Parquet Courts tomorrow (with a side order of Biffy and Don Broco) These next few weeks are stacked with new releases for me - makes a nice change from the usual pre Christmas drop off!
  8. Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes is exactly what I needed after the day I've had! Could have done with a couple more songs (album comes in at just under 30 mins) but doesn't slow down in its pace throughout. Anyone been brave and listened to Coldplay yet?!
  9. She Drew The Gun very good on first listen. Agree with a few of the comments on Sam Fenders latest. There are some very good songs in there but a lot of it feels quite samey and a bit bland which is a shame.
  10. 1. The Lathums - How Beautiful Life Can Be 2. The Vaccines - Back In Love City 3. Amyl and The Sniffers - Comfort To Me
  11. The Holiday Inn dates got released this morning I think. I managed to get a family room for the weekend-was about £200 a night so not cheap. But it’s 0.4 miles away from the site so really easy to get to and from.
  12. 1. Chvrches 2. The Killers 3. Jade Bird
  13. Been at Victorious Fest this weekend so first chance I’ve had to listen to it but holy shit the Chvrches album is good!
  14. The amount of people near me that quickly disappeared after Pigs x7 started playing-not sure what they were expecting!! Great day all round. My pre festival must see was Glasvegas (favourite band), small crowd but everyone there really got into it which was good. But Fontaines set was by far the most impressive for me, absolutely owned that stage-they are going to be huge. Was meant to see them twice before but covid cancellations both times meant that it didn’t happen. 3rd time definitely lucky. Insane value for money as others have said. Where are you going to watch the calibre of acts there for a fiver a band?
  15. Went yesterday and loved it from start to finish. Seen some of the horror stories from the Saturday but didn’t experience any of that on Sunday. Fantastic setting for a festival-loved just wandering around the site, great choice of acts across a range of stages, queues for food/toilets wasn’t an issue at all and getting in and out of the car park was fine. Weather just topped it off.
