2018 New Music

Recommended Posts

I think the predictions of Alex's interest in Tame Impala rubbing off will prove true based on that. Weird name also.

I read that they're meant to not have any singles out before the album so yeah, that should raise the stakes (if true).

I do want to hear "The World’s First Ever Monster Truck Front Flip" as soon as humanly possible though.

I forgot how much I liked Arctic Monkeys during the AM era cos the hype got pretty annoying. I kinda hope this splits opinion like Humbug did, and if it's half as good as that album we're laughing. Awful name though.

Yeah I forget that I usually actually like their most recent output because some people make liking the band unbearable.

And it's a great name. Let's get weird!

I'll like the name if I like the album I think haha. That video is winning me over on that weird track name too.

I can never resist singles when they're released so if they don't release any then hearing the album with it all being new at once will be cool. A month isn't long to wait, I'm happy with that.

Completely agree, they're never going back to what they were at this point, they've all learnt a tonne since the last album, really hope they mess with some psych this time.

Is it James Ford producing again?

Very much looking forward to it .. and only a month or so to wait! Got a feeling it’s going to be their best album yet.

New Hinds record is a massive step up from their debut, fans of lo-fi guitar pop make sure you check that out tomorrow. Got all the same energy and charm but the songwriting has improved massively.

That AM teaser has got me going but I can't be having this no singles rubbish. Need them to drop a banger and I'll be right back on the hype train.

That's good to hear. I think they needed to step up their songwriting to keep me interested, not that I believe that was their motivation.

You call anything a banger. I'd be interested to see if it can be done with a rock band not releasing any singles before the album is out and maintaining a level of hype - even Radiohead released a couple of songs in the days leading up to LP9 - but I can't imagine none of these tracks will be heard by 11th May, even if it's a leak or a live video from their next tour date.

While I'm at musical street cred ground zero after riding for The Vaccines and getting excited by Arctic Monkeys' monster truck songs, I wanna throw a shout out to the new Kate Nash album. Could do with being not so fucking long but there are some gems in there.

Awesome, I loved their debut more than most I know but I've got no issue with them stepping up their songwriting. I've got a Manchester ticket to see them, I should see when that is...

That's not funny. (to me, I hope you got a chuckle writing it).

No massive reinvention here but I'm really liking this on first listen. It's like they never went away at all.

yeah, I'm loving that after a few listens. exactly what I want from a Friendly Fires track, fun and danceable and sounds like it would be great live, which is where they shine the most.

I'm going to pick up some new music tomorrow - this thread moves at some pace - any recommendations that I may have missed over the last couple of months? 

I haven't picked up/downloaded much apart from the Jack White album. I might get the Goat Girl album, Sister Cities but then I have no idea what else...

Shame were fucking brilliant in Bristol tonight, some serious stage presence for such a young band.

The Aces debut album is a very enjoyable album on first listen. It will inevitably get comparisons to Haim - and it is very similar it parts, but that’s no bad thing at all!
