Welcome to our final New Music post of 2017. We’ll be back with more recommendations in the first week of January, but do keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter accounts between now and then for any tracks we reckon need sharing
Pugwash feat. Matt Berry – What Are You Like?
Another power-pop gem from the pen of Thomas Walsh, from this year’s album Silverlake. Always underappreciated, you’d have to wonder what this guy needs to do to go supernova
Iggy Pop and Jarvis Cocker – Red Right Hand
Originally written by Nick Cave, and used as the theme song of Peaky Blinders, Jarvis and Ig have recorded their own version, which sounds somewhat like the deranged sequel to Ig’s ‘Nightclubbing’
Lucy Dacus – Night Shift
‘The first time I tasted somebody else’s spit, I had a coughing fit’. If that’s not one of the Great Opening Lines, I don’t know what is. Lucy‘s album Historian is out on March 2nd
MGMT – When You Die
Really looking forward to the new MGMT album. This is the second taster from Little Dark Age, out early next year. Enjoy this jaunty ditty about death.
New Album Of The Week:
Eminem – Revival
He’s not fucking around anymore. This is Eminem‘s most personal album to date. He’s not afraid to lift the lid on his own shortcomings (‘Bad Husband’), and while there’s some humour throughout the record, don’t expect the psychotically zany outpourings that made The Marshall Mathers LP such a joy. He’s 46 now, and Revival sees Eminem talking seriously about his world and the world at large. President Trump gets filleted on the album’s stand-out track ‘Like Home’. Treat yourself to this album for Christmas
Reissue Of The Week:
Sly and The Family Stone – Greatest Hits
The classic greatest hits album originally released in 1970 gets a vinyl reissue this week through Sony.
- I Want To Take You Higher
- Everybody Is A Star
- You Can Make It If You Try
