A few others…

Special Interest - Endure

Pitchfork darlings that play dancey punk rock

Hans Pucket - No Drama

New Zealand indie rock with a whiff of Vampire Weekend

This week’s female solo release from Australia:

Laura Jean - Amateurs

Amateurs is an album about anti-art and anti-intellectual culture in the modern world. It sees Laura questioning her role as a songwriter and examining the reality of her life choices. It is also a warmhearted, humorous and sonically breathtaking album.

Choir Of Young Believers - Holy Smoke
Another bumper day of releases, but I was most surprised and happy to see COYB’s first album in six years. Very subdued and understated, with a mixture of English and Danish singing, but it sounds great and one I’m looking forward to getting into more.

All about (not so) heavy devy for me today

Prolific ex metaller makes something more laid back and ‘song based’ in his words. Although he’s had a few things not too dissimilar in the past
