156 – Lingua Ignota, Foxing, Fawn Limbs and Creeper

Remfry’s feeling very hoarse after making an extravagant re-entrance back into non-socially distanced gig-going, as he hurtled himself down to his old stomping ground of Bristol to see 80Trees, the mini-indoor festival hastily put together by the 2000Trees and ArcTanGent team.

Releases reviewed this week include Sinner Get Ready by Lingua Ignota, Draw Down the Moon by Foxing, Darwin Falls by Fawn Limbs and American Noir by Creeper

Albums reviewed this week are Van Weezer by Weezer, Endless Arcade by Teenage Fanclub, The Last Three Seconds by Voronoi and There Is No God Where I Am by Cruelty.
