Black + White = Grey

Jack Black meets Jack White and hilarity ensues. Enjoy...

"Fear Inoculum"

A new single for the first time in 13 years from a band with as many rabidly devoted fans as this one deserves some sort of special mention. Haven't listened to it yet myself, but assuming you have ten minutes, then let me know what you think...


Peace,

Best of 2019...So Far


Well, it's August which means we have passed the halfway point of the year. As such, here are my choices for best songs and albums of the year so far, as well as a handful of releases to be excited about for the second half of 2019...

New Music (and thank goodness for August!)

July is always such a boring month for music. Pretty much all anyone has to write about is the onslaught of summer festivals (or perhaps, if desperate, the Gallagher brothers' never-ending feud) and very rarely is anything momentous released. Roll on August!

Here is new music from Slaves (EP entitled 'The Velvet Ditch'), IDLES (video for "Mercedes Marxist" and new single entitled "I Dream Guillotine"), and Angel Olsen (new song "All Mirrors"). As already posted, Elbow have a new single from their forthcoming October release and Thom Yorke has released a four-song EP in which all of the tracks are remixes of "Not the News" (because of course he did).




Peace,
   Br.

New Music from Elbow

Ahead of the fall release of their new album 'Giant of All Sizes', here is "Dexter & Sinister", a bold and at times de-stabilizing experiment of a song that is nothing less than purposeful given these uncertain times, especially in post-Brexit England. Enjoy.
