Summer rolls on and the big albums keep a-coming as Steve and Remfry review new releases from Bon Iver, Frank Turner, Sleater-Kinney, Killswitch Engage and Feeder. They also discuss the possibility of Slipknot having their first no.1 album for 18 years and Steve reports back from his favourite festival in the world Bloodstock, including live reviews of Parkway Drive, Soulfly, TesseracT, Anthrax, Cancer Bats, Soilwork, Lotus Eater, Boss Keloid, Thy Art is Murder, The Wildhearts and Sabaton.
This week, Steve and Remfry discuss the sobering topic of HMV going into administration for a second time and what that could potentially mean for the music industry at large (spoiler, it’s not good). In addition, they talk about some surprising and welcome additions to NME’s ‘Essential new artists for 2019’ as well as the sheer ridiculous situation that has forced Kate Bush to come out and proclaim she’s not a Tory supporter (as if anyone sensible cared).
There are also album reviews of Swervedriver’s ‘Future Ruins’ and Soilwork’s ‘Verkligheten’ and Trade-Off this week comes courtesy of Agnes Obel’s ‘Citizen of Glass’ and Kruger’s ‘Adam and Steve’.
