New album release day 28/7

couple i’m hyped for today

namely Ben Gibbard’s Bandwagonesque cover LP and Juanita Stein’s first solo album

dunno if either will be good, but that first Howling Bells album is a right gem

New Fall album out today I believe.


Just been listening to the Ben Gibbard version of Bandwagonesque. It’s very well done, but it’s so similar that I’m failing to see the point in listening to it over the Fannies original.

Going to try the new Arcade Fire and Fall LPs later. Had a wee listen to the Fake Laugh album on the bus earlier and it sounded good to me too.

yeah, i turned it off halfway because it’s basically the same album.

Juanita Stein’s album is really good so far. Rockin’

The debut album by Dvne is out today which I will be listening to as soon as I get home tonight.

Not sure if anyone’s aware, but Arcade Fire have a new album out today.

Listening to the Radiator reissue…a bit more bass but still not enough…

New Pet Shop Boys reissues of ‘Nightlife’, ‘Release’ and ‘Fundamental’ out today - just bought the CDs for the Further Listening content; demos etc.
They have held back streaming the unreleased stuff on Spotify etc.

Badbadnotgood’s late night tales is a decent listen

Ben Lukas Boysen & Sebastian Plano is the Norman Records album of the week. It’s an Erased Tapes thing and I haven’t heard it yet but reviews suggest is is very much something you would expect ET to put out. So probably amazing.

It’s a soundtrack to the game Everything apparently. It’s really nice - good enough to make me want to get the game

Passion Pit’s new one is out digitally - it’s good

New Manchester Orchestra out today :slight_smile:

Played it on the way to work and was loving it. I saw it pop up on Spotify and remembered their name as I think they’ve supported Brand New a few times.
Never really dug too deep into them before and now I can’t think why that was.
Looking forward to properly delving into their back catalog.

Great band, new one is sounding strong and their back catalogue is immense. Mean everything to nothing a good place to start imho

Cheers. I’ll leap in to that one.
Very tempted to get tickets for their London show later this year, just based on what I’ve already heard.

Absolutely this. One of my all time favourite albums.

Despite being a long time fan I’m seeing them for the first time in Glasgow later this year…cant wait
