New Releases 20/04/18


#21

Will check out the new Alexis Taylor… Nothing else grabbing me so far.

Gave spins to new Courtney Barnett, Mazzy Star & Fr John Misty singles on my commute. All bode good signs for the albums.


#22

They should have called it ‘Have you ever heard of Sting (and Shaggy)’


#23

Shit week no fans


#24

There’s definitely a linked song suite in there:

-Night Shift with Shaggy
-Waiting For the Break of Day with Shaggy
-Don’t Make Me Wait with Shaggy
-Just One Lifetime with Shaggy
-Morning is Coming with Shaggy

It recounts the tale of a night spent in company of Mr Boombastic, with Sting’s patience rapidly dwindling as the evening wears on (presumably due to Shaggy’s perpetual ‘bom biddley biddley bom’-ing and general hyperactive behaviour).


#25

Night Shift with Shaggy sounds like everyone’s worst nightmare


#26

Bit of a departure for Stacy Solomon there.


#27

Is the deadening pall of the awful RSD the reason no-one wants to put out any new music this week?


#28

Not sure if I like Beautiful Thing as much as Taylor’s Piano record but there’s still some lovely moments overall particularly Oh Baby.


#29

That’s what I was thinking this morning. Just seen on twitter that people have been queuing since 8 this morning outside Piccadilly records in Manchester… JFC!!!


#30

Just one lifetime with Shaggy


#31

DRINKS Hippo Lite is definitely a much more coherent and cohesive statement than Hermits on Holiday was, with far less overtly zany moments (apart from maybe Ducks / Leave The Lights On) but overall this album feels like a truer representation of both artists sounds & styles.

Definitely waiting with bated breath to hear what Cate does with the new Deerhunter record.


#32

I’ve just stuck it on, bored shitless half way through the first song, not a good sign.


#33

I think we’re all overlooking the long-awaited new Jesus Jones album out today…


#34

I have definitely overlooked it.


#35

Got Sleep, Pennywise and Cancer Bats albums lined up for the afternoon.

Touche Amore new single appeared on my release radar - how a horrible feeling it was going to be shit as they’ve been on such a good run. Thankfully it’s not.


#36

Just Sleep for me really this week, Marijuanaut’s Theme is an incredible track title!


#37

Thanks for the reminder re Pennywise, forgot they had a new one coming out, going to wait for the wife and kids to go out later and unleash it!


#38

What about the album?


#39

New Ibibio Sound Machine EP Eyio is fun if you want more of that upbeat party thing they do


#40

The track A Forest is particularly good
