161 – Manic Street Preachers, Little Simz, Low and Andrew W.K.

We’re joined by a special guest this week as Ash from Sugar Horse steps up to cast his critical eye over the week’s new releases which are The Ultra Vivid Lament by Manic Street Preachers, Sometimes I Might Be Introvert by Little Simz, Hey What by Low and God is Partying by Andrew W.K.

There are also brief reviews of Bad Pond Festival as well as Arab Strap’s much anticipated debut show in London since the release of their critically lauded come-back album As Days Get Dark.

Oh and there’s a nonsense story about how Classical music leaves us hooked on chocolate biscuits.

134 – Nick Cave & Warren Ellis, Arab Strap, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard and Tigers Jaw

Well, they only went and bleeding did it! Mogwai at No.1 in the Official UK Album Charts. Remfry’s very excited and it looks like Architects will score well on this week’s Official Album Charts as well. Hooray for guitar music!

In other good news, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have won a Golden Globe for their soundtrack to Pixar’s Soul.Sadly and somewhat predictably, Download Festival has been cancelled in 2021, and Van Morrison has announced a new studio album (his 42nd!), a double album with some dubious eye-rolling, old man titles. 

Steve and Remfry review new releases including Carnage by Nick Cave & Warren Ellis, As Days Get Dark by Arab Strap, L.W by King Gizzard & the Wizard Lizard and I Won’t Care How You Remember Me by Tigers Jaw.
