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.
