IDLES - Joy As an Act of Resistance - I never got into Brutalism (I’ll have to revisit it now), but the second I heard Colossus I was in.

Ovlov - TRU - For fans of fuzzy, catchy rock.

Yowler - Black Dog in My Path - For fans of sad music.

Forgot about Gwenno. Great album and her Hoxton Hall gig was brilliant.

Penelope Trappes
Caroline Says

Dilly Dally - Heaven
Incredible grunge/shoegaze, pretty crushing yet strangely uplifting too

Wild Pink - Yolk in the Fur
Sublime, emo Americana, heavy Springsteen touches. One for those who enjoyed War on drugs earlier material

Hovvdy - Cranberry
Blissed out lo fi indie, released on double double whammy

(Had a few more too, Lucy Dacus springs to mind as another stunner)

Marlon Williams - sexy sad countrified swoon songs
The Voidz - Casablancas doing what he should be doing, being a genius
Slug - herky jerky fun

Natalie Prass - The Future and the Past
Daniel Avery - Song for Alpha
Idles - Joy

Extremely honorable mentions to Arvo Party, Courtney Barnett & Gwenno

I really liked the Marlon Williams record too

Listening to Dilly Dally now. What an album!

They’re touring next year. Bagged a ticket for £11
