152 – DC Dark Nights, Brockhampton, Sons of Kemet, Spirit of the Beehive, Panopticon and Squid

This week, Steve and Remfry discuss the ‘doomsday vault’ that is being created on the archipelago of Svalbard (just off the coast of Norway) to preserve the world’s best music and whether the lockdown restrictions lifting in the UK on 19th July will (hopefully) mean that some UK-based festivals (we’re looking at your Bloodstock and Reading and Leeds) will be able to go ahead (again hopefully). Happy days … (hopefully!) We also question the decision of a New Zealand based mother naming their children Metallica, Slayer and Pantera … naturally, Remfry brings you the pedophile angle on the story. 


There’s not an awful lot going on in terms of new releases this week, but there is a bunch of stuff that we’ve missed over the past couple of months that definitely deserves some recognition, so we review new(ish) releases including the OST to DC Dark Nights: Death Metal, Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine by Brockhampton, Black to the Future by Sons of Kemet, Entertainment, Death by Spirit of the Beehive,… And Again Into The Light by Panopticon and Bright Green Field by Squid.
