Here’s a brief run down of what was release on 22nd March
Playlist at the bottom.
These New Puritans – Inside The Rose
Album of the week. Another great piece of work from Southend’s Barnett twins
Rating: 7.5/10 – Read full review
Zeal & Ardor – Live in London
A great introduction to this blistering gospel/death metal act. There’s little in the way of audience interaction but a lot of good, tight music. Sound quality could be better.
L.A. Witch – Octubre (EP)
Dark, brooding 60’s influenced psych-rock-pop that’s well worth 15 minutes of your time.
Crows – Silver Tongues
Initially disappointing debut from this heavy post-punk outfit. Was growing on me by the end. One to return to
Apparat – LP5
Note of interst from the German electronic musician, but it feels like the album never really goes where you expect it to.
La Dispute – Panorama
Some interesting moments on this from the American post-hardcore band, just not enough of them.
Ibibio Sound Machine – Doko Mien
Some nice squelchy and funky sections in this, but overall not quite my cup of tea. Fans of Nile Rogers might appreciate.
Sleeper – The Modern Age
Clearly haven’t moved on much from their nineties hayday. Perhaps they should have stayed there.
Here’s a playlist of all of the above if you want to listen to this week’s selected new releases.
