Here’s the music we’re excited about at RockYouLike Towers this week
Fiona Apple – I Can’t Wait To Meet You
Taken from a new compilation album called Hope And Dreams: The Lullaby Project, where all the songs are written by expectant mothers. Also featuring are Roseanne Cash, Rhiannon Giddens, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Natalie Merchant. Now Fiona, can we have a new album please?
The Coral – Sweet Release
This is the first new music from the band since 2016’s brilliant collection Distance Inbetween. New album Move Through The Dawn will be with us in August, and they’ll be touring in support
Prince – Nothing Compares 2 U
On The Purple One’s second anniversary, his estate released the original recording of a song made famous by Sinead O’Connor. It’s glorious, of course.
Forth Wanderers – Ages Ago
Not the Scottish football club, but a young New Jersey band whose second, self-titled album will be available this Friday through Sub Pop Records. Check ’em out, we love them.
The Cure – Want (Time Mix 2018)
We’re pretty excited ab out the upcoming 3CD reissue of Rob & Co.’s 1990 album Mixed Up. The 3CD set will include the original album remastered, a disc of classic extended versions and remixes spanning 1982 – 1990, and a third disc of brand new remixes by main man Smith, of which the below is a sample. June 15th for the album
Father John Misty – Disappointing Diamonds Are The Rarest Of Them All
Mr. Tillman’s new album God’s Favourite Customer will be with us on June 1st, and it’s shaping up to be every bit as unique and brilliant as last year’s Pure Comedy. Of the three tracks available so far, this is our favourite.
New Album Of The Week:
A Perfect Circle – Eat The Elephant
We’ve been banging on about the impending new album from A Perfect Circle for months here at RockYouLike, and it’s finally here. Their first in 14 years, it’s mellower than we expected, but sure isn’t that age for ya?
Reissue Of The Week:
The Who – Live At The Fillmore East 1968
Pre-Tommy, Who’s Next and Quadrophenia, the triad of albums that truly made them great, The Who were always a great live band, as proven by this live document spread across 3LPs or 2 CDs. The finale, a version of My Generation, lasts about a year though.
