This week, we have a trio of new tracks from Irish artists, another from a brand new act, an icon returns with a brand new album, and our Reissue Of The Week is a stone-cold classic
All Tvvins – Crash
Not as immediately catchy as usual from the Irish duo, but worth spending time with. We’re looking forward to album two
HamsandwicH – Bodies
Slinky as Bejayzus. A new departure of sorts from the Hammers, we like their new synth-infused direction
202s – Soul Don’t Boogie
Yet more Irish music. Long one of our favourite bands, this zipper is from the band‘s new album, out on February 2nd, called From When The Future Was Yet To Hurt Us
White Room – Twisted Celebration
We don’t know all that much about this band other than that there’s from Brighton, they’re signed to Deltasonic Records, and this is ace
New Album of The Week
Bjork – Utopia
Never less than interesting, often plain brilliant, Utopia is a joy from start to finish. As is usual with Bjork‘s best work, it doesn’t give a fig about ‘hit’ ‘singles’, it just goes about it’s business being inspired and wondrous.
Reissue of The Week
Ramones – Rocket To Russia (Super Deluxe Edition)
One can never have too much Ramones. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Da Brudders’ third album, it’s been reissued as a triple CD + Vinyl set which includes the album remastered, quite literally scores of demos and outtakes, and a previously unreleased live gig from Glasgow in December 77. For an album that in it’s original form is just half an hour long, that’s some achievement!
