Album Review | IDLES – ‘Joy as an Act of Resistance’

Idles -Joy As An act of Resistance

IDLES prove they’re One of UK’s Finest with Second Album ‘Joy as an Act of Resistance

Punk is well and truly kicking in Idles’ new release – Joy as an Act of Resistance. It is the second album by the Bristol band consisting of Joe Talbot, Adam Devonshire, Mark Bowen, Lee Kieran and Jon Beavis. For those of you unfamiliar with the band, I would compare them mostly to Slaves. Their half sung, half shouted style is most definitely infectious and really grabs you through their music.

Idles released their first album Brutalism in 2017 (FULL REVIEW HERE). The band did reportedly struggle to find their sound initially, Talbot claiming “It took us a long time to get productive because we didn’t know what the fuck we were doing at all, we were fucking terrible for a long time.” However, this time was obviously well spent, with Brutalism being very well received, and the sophomore album is in no way secondary to this.

The witty lyrics of sarcastic frontman, Joe, reference heavily, with some more obscure and unexpected than others. Rock is an obvious reference point in ‘Cry to me’. The track seems almost synonymous with the Rolling Stone’s track of the same name, but Idles successfully stamp their post-punk sound all over it.

Perhaps highlighting Idles laid back approach to music and care free attitude, the 80’s classic Dirty dancing appears on the album “I carried a watermelon/ I wanna be vulnerable in the shape of Love song”. It seems Idles have a particular penchant for the past, quoting 1960s Nancy Sinatra ‘These boots were made for walking’ In ‘Never fight a man with a perm’, almost with the delivery of One of these days- Operation Ivy, post punking a classic once again. Revival seems the name of the game here.

We can really see that, Idles have not lost their sense of humour in anyway in their second album. While delivered in true Idles fashion, some may call loud and angry, light-heartedness doesn’t go a miss with obvious reality TV references “You look like you’re from Love Island in Love song” and self-degradation in ‘I’m scum’.

But, Idles cannot be discredited for tackling a variety of subjects throughout the album. There’s so much truth in the album, the frontman in particular really sharing his reality through the music. ‘Colossus’, the album opener, bursts through the speakers with great fury and anger. Addressing Talbot’s alcohol addiction, the frontman almost spits the line “I waste away for fun” repeatedly .This track isn’t the first time he has spoken so candidly about his problem with drink, “I’m just a prick. I get paranoid, jealous, angry, violent”. This reality and truth is achieved by both the tempo and the intensity of the drums changing continually creating a certain chaos and anxiety.

Loud and angry aren’t the only characteristics to achieve truth in this album. ‘June’, the most poignant track on the album by far, is notably the slowest song on the album. This is really quite a difficult song to listen to, being Talbot’s platform for the grief surrounding the death of his daughter, Agatha, in June of 2017. Much like ‘Colossus’, the song really feels like a relief for Talbot, personalising the album incredibly although the frontman claimed he was unsure if this song would be released. The most haunting lines in the song are “Dreams can be so cruel sometimes/ I swear I kissed your crying eyes and A stillborn was born/ I am a father”. The tone of Talbot’s voice is extremely harrowing while the production is extremely simple, almost sitting on the lines of Nana- The 1975.

The album is also highly uplifting, achieving many a mode in a series of twelve tracks. ‘Television’ tackles self-love and reflection in the age of such ridiculous beauty standards and media pressure. This track encapsulates Joy as an act of resistance, calling for acceptance of uniqueness against continual calls for obedience, most notably in ‘Love yourself’, “The bastards make you not want to look like you and I smash mirrors and fuck TV”.

The song stands as a message of positivity and confidence while the media perpetuates nonsense for conformity and insecurity. Similar to this is the most poppy song on the album, ‘Danny Nedelko’, names after the Hungarian frontman of Heavy Lungs, perpetuating hope and positivity. The song circles around the issue of immigration expressed in “He’s made of bones/ He’s made of blood/ He’s made of flesh/ He’s made of love/ He’s made of you/ He’s made of me/ Unity!” This track is actually quite refreshing, although still delivered in Idles’ fashion, a social message is put forward rather eloquently. Although Talbot describes the song as ‘more of a humane portrait than a political song’, he also wanted the ‘two notions to be inseparable’. The song achieves such that, the song captures immigration as a human issue rather than a black and white issue as often shown in the media.

All in all, I would describe this new release as eclectic and truthful. Taking influences from a variety of sources, while addressing multiple facets, the album is an obvious journey through a life lived.

I already can’t wait for the next one!

New Release | Echo Beach! – ‘She’

Echo Beach! - She

Echo Beach! Release debut Single ‘She‘, and it’s Wonderful!

Just a week or so ago, Shrewsbury Indie-Pop band The Sunset Beach Hut released their debut track ‘Upside Down’. Now Shrewsbury boast two of the most promising bands in the UK, as Echo Beach! release their debut single ‘She’.

She’ boasts one of the most funkiest treble drenched riffs that’s been heard this year, as it lays a tasty lick behind the magnificent vocals from Paige Janey as she sings “She’s so sure / She’s so Proud!”. The song takes it’s time introducing itself to you as the introduction lasts about 25 seconds until the bass kicks, making it even sweeter when it all comes together.

The track has a very stripped back indie feel, as the song doesn’t sound crowded with elements or too washed out. It’s that song that you can stick on when you need a bit of a pick me up, when you walking out the door and you don’t feel quite ready to take on the day. Put your earphones in, walk to the beat and feel confident!

Echo Beach are still in their infancy as a band, but it sounds like they know their way round a tune, and have a very talented guitarist on their hands also.

Catch the band live, tickets and info below!

Album Review | MASK – ‘The Famous’

Mask - The Famous.jpg

Belfast Band MASK deliver on their Debut Album ‘The Famous’

This is the debut album for Belfast band MASK, however it doesn’t seem like it is regarding how refined the songs are. After starting out in 2004, the band released ‘The Truth’ EP last year, and after a lot of hard work and a quick turn around, they have a debut album!

The opener ‘You Know I Know‘ took 50 seconds to give me a vocal. but don’t let that put you off.  The eager anticipation is rewarded, with the drums making a fierce entrance, and the booming vocals makes that initial delay worth the wait!

The first song pleasantly joins the next tune, ‘Celebrity’, with the same uplifting drums setting the pace. I particularly enjoyed this song, it’s lyrical controversy may cause some heated debates understandably, but it’s catchy country, what do you expect? And it sets you up perfectly when you reach the track ‘So They Say’, which is melodically tremendous, and also lyrically interesting.

You don’t have to play by the rules/ do what you want to do! “on to ‘Rabid Dawg’, which gave me hints of the Arctic Monkeys actually, I enjoyed it! And moving on I think There’s a pattern emerging within the lyrics, through this whole album. I feel like punk rock has went up a level, it’s a big middle finger in a spectacular fashion.

The song ‘Greatest Lie’ starts with an awesome acoustic riff, which reminded me of green day, good riddance, and vocally it was more controlled than the previous tracks, which I was excited about, it delivered more skill and range.

This album had me imagining a cowboy, back flipping off a horse, kicking open the saloon doors, giving everybody inside the death stare, demanding a whiskey neat and explaining to every one inside that what they’ve understood to be, is not to be. It’s cheese-free, witty and clever, and while deconstructing perspectives, it’s addictive rock music worth listening to.

Album Review | Our Girl – ‘Stranger Today’

Our Girl - Stranger Today

Our Girl deliver with their Beautiful Debut Album ‘Stranger Today’

Since revealing their plans for the debut album, Our Girl has had me going through their musical catalogue trying to get ideas of what their first full length album would be like. Of course all the prepping and brushing up on their old material couldn’t prepare me for what I was going to hear on release day when Stranger Today hit my ears for the first time.

It was like a huge wave hitting me one after another throughout the album, as the band effortlessly throw you around from song to song. Take the opener ‘Our Girl’, soft and delicate verses with light angelic vocals until the thundering chorus where the guitars make the sounds of the world crumbling around you. ‘Being Around’ follows which is certainly a contender for song of the album, as you realise this album is special you hear vocalist Soph Nathan sing “I can feel it taking shape”,  as if she’s a mind reader.

I Really Like It’ (Single of the Weekwas released prior to this album, yet it felt fresh sitting around these new songs. No matter how long the song has been out for, it still is one of the most touching songs to be heard. From lyrics to musicality it’s wonderful to listen to and is a real highlight. All of these songs set up a strong start to the album, which was a sign of things to come.

Josephine’ has a really slow build to the break down where Nathan sings “Lets make up/ I’m Fed Up”. The eerie, screeching guitars are haunting at points, especially as it works its way down the neck of the guitar. The laid back style the vocals are delivered could be conceived as lack luster, but its that style which provide a perfect contrast to the chaos which the instruments provide behind this track.

The second half of the album is slightly slower in pace with songs like ‘Level’ and ‘Sub Rosa’ as the manic instruments take a step back and let the vocals do the work. These songs sound somewhat isolated at times, but perfectly placed on the record.

I Wish It Was Sunday’ is a highlight of the second half of the record. Lyrically it’s one of the best on here with the quick lines and subtle storytelling of a broken relationship: “Feeling sick of feeling fine / It’s not worth it all the time / It doesn’t break me but it shakes meI’ve been alone before/ Just for a minute / I’ll admit I like being yours” .

Our Girl have an ability to build you up and feel safe, then rip it right from under your feet when the guitars hit you out of nowhere. Their sound has a grungy undertone, as it grumbles at you with melody – which is a joy to listen to. This is best heard in the album closer ‘Boring’, as the instruments run complete riot and surely the band lost all control at this point.

This is seriously one of the best albums that I’ve heard so far this year, because I know I’m not finished with it, there’s things still to learn from the record. The album has that quality where you’ll find yourself going back to songs you perhaps ignored first time around, only to discover something intriguing about it. With four months of the year left, there’s a strong feeling which says this will be in the end of year top 10 list. Our Girl can be proud of this debut, and look forward to sharing it with everyone around the world. As much as I want more from the band, this album will most definitely keep me occupied until then.

Album Review | Bad Sounds – ‘Get Better’

Bad Sounds - Get Better Album Cover

Do Bad Sounds deliver on their Debut Album?

For some us the day we’ve been waiting for for almost two years has arrived, as indie fun-lovers Bad Sounds release their highly anticipated debut album and oh boy has it been worth waiting for.

If you’re unfamiliar with Bad Sounds then here’s a brief introduction: Get Better is part of the zany world of brothers Ewan and Callum Merrett, who along with Sam, Charlie, and Olivia make funky indie hip-hop inspired tunes with lyrics occasionally so strange you wonder if they’ve just played a game of Scrabble and read the board out. After the success of previous E.P releases PHRESSSH (which is currently tragically digital only) and Mixtape One, Get Better features some of the cream of the Bad Sounds crop, as well as some equally pleasing new tracks.

Album opener ‘Wages’ is a welcome into the tongue-in-cheek world of the Merrett brothers as lyricists. usually the hyper chant of “When you gonna pay my wages, my patience is paper thin?” can be heard at the end of one of Bad Sounds’ excellent gigs but here it provides a triumphant fanfare ready to drop you into what else the band have to offer. It flows straight into the familiar “Bang! Hit it Joe” catchphrase at the beginning of their breakout single ‘Avalanch” which has a fresh mix to it, sounding just as fantastic and singalong today as it did 2 years ago.

Breezy new track ‘How You Gonna Lose’ is the perfect summery indie-track that you absolutely must play in the sunshine, while previously released single Couldn’t Give It Away gifts us more of the real-life phrase inspired lyrics that the brothers are known for, but with an out-there and almost space-like theme. Previously unreleased (except on a difficult to get hold of Flying Vinyl exclusive) track ‘Banger ‘ is exactly as the title describes; a tune that it would be criminal not to play on repeat and that makes you want to dance and feel better. The latter part of the album sees more of the laid-back tones seen on their previous EPs, particularly via tracks ‘Another Man’ and ‘No Luck’, while the previously released singles ‘Evil Powers’ and ‘Honestly’ stand-out as excellent poppy tracks that make you want to move.

As with any great indie band, Bad Sounds stand above the crowd by experimenting with multiple different sound-styles and for an album whose title and theme is Get Better”you certainly feel better after playing this through.

EP Review | Spinn – ‘Spinn EP’

Spinn EP

Liverpool Band Spinn Release their Jangly Dream Pop Debut EP

Just finishing listening to ‘After Dark’ earlier in the year it was quite clear that Liverpool band Spinn had a lot to offer. Since then it’s been a short wait for the band to release the EP, and it’s so good to have it in the Worlds arms.

The EP from top to bottom is coated with twinkling guitars, similar to ones that could be heard on a Mac Demarco record. But the sleek vocals that lay over the instrumentals couldn’t be any further from Mac Demarco, as that endearing scouse twang gives a subtle attitude to the tracks. From the start you’re given the fast paced dancer ‘She Takes Her Time’ which is a joy to listen to, especially with that arcade sounding solo.

You then have the two tracks that were released this year ‘After Dark’ and ‘Who You Are’, both of which could contest to be song of the EP. Their jangly dream pop warps all around the room giving off cool breeze that only a sweet guitar riff could. ‘After Dark’ has this brooding composure about it with it’s deep riff, while ‘Who You Are’ carries a in-your-face attitude fronted by the lines:

“Don’t you tell me/how you’re so oh so/oh so very different to anyone else/I See through you”  

The final track ‘November‘ is Synth heavy and once again is armed with that deep and dark guitar riff. However the song comes bursting to colour when it breaks down, which is bliss to listen to.

Spinn have a special air around them which gives them that slightly larger than life feel. The guys can be very proud of this EP, and I’m looking forward to them taking it out on the road, if you’re around one of their shows make sure you get yourself down there.

Album Review | Camp Cope – ‘How to Socialize and Make Friends’

Camp Cope - How to Socialise and Make FriendsI first came across Camp Cope last year when I stumbled across their self-titled album, and ever since then the album has silently stuck with me. The Lo-Fi production of it all was endearing enough, but the topic of the songs and the emotions that were being conveyed throughout each track were something else. That album was so enjoyable, with it only being 8 tracks long it left you wanting more, and each track felt important to that album. There was no filler, which is a problem in the modern music age of releasing albums.

Fast forward a year and they’ve released their second album ‘How to Socialize and Make Friends’, finally it was time for another Camp Cope fix. Once again the band opt for a sensible amount of songs, as the album features 9 tracks – but there’s no filler, it’s all premium material.

The album opens up with the suitably named ‘The Opener’ and immediately Georgia Maq is opening up her heart and letting it bleed over the record as she begins tells the tale of a shitty relationship and how badly you can be treated sometimes. The stories in the track are so relatable and put across in such a blunt and honest way in the lyrics.

Tell me that no one knows me like you do

And tell me that my friends don’t tell me the truth

And maybe I’ll come crawling back to you

Like, that was your plan, right?”

The song then quickly takes a turn as Maq sticks a blunt middle finger up the male dominated music industry. She continues to pull from personal experiences, making the song authentic and making the song one of the best on the record.

This is a recurring feature of the album as Maq consistently dives into her library of experiences and morphs them into beautiful songs for people to understand.

The title track also has these qualities as she expresses how difficult it is to fit in and feel a part of something, with the constant feeling of being lost as she sings “I’m riding in the dark/on my bike with no handlebars”. ‘Anna’ is another insightful track where Georgia urges you to “Get it all out/ Write another song”. It’s hard not to think that this her giving advice to anyone who’s struggling or dealing with something, as it’s quite clear this is how Maq thinks things through and starts shifting that weight of her shoulders.

Musically it’s great to hear that the band have stuck with their sound, as it still has that lo-fi gritty sound attached to it. In some respects it could be considered as part 2 of their first album, as there’s not much difference instrumentally – but the songs are individuals due to the topics sewn to them.

The band then work their way through with ‘Sagan-Indiana’ and ‘The Omen’ which are both talent-fuelled. ‘Animal and Real’ really sticks out in the mind due to the vocal performance, which has this desperation clinging onto it, which again lends to the argument that everything Camp Cope do has meaning attached it and isn’t just thrown together for the sake of.

The final track ‘I’ve Got You’ is a circle song which means the chords cycle in the same order, beginning to end. The song is about Georgia’s father Hugh Mcdonald who passed away in 2016, and in isolation, when nothing is going on around you, this song is emotionally very powerful. Georgia throws everything into this track allowing herself to be an open book. She provides lyrics like :

“They said there’s something inside of you / So they tried radiation, chemicals too”

Along with,

“And you said there’s broken links in your brain/ And I said it’s okay, mines exactly the same”

It’s lines like these which make the songs very real and close to home, and for someone to have the ability to craft a song out of times like these should be respected. Not only because the song is a stunning piece of work, but to write about something like this helps so many people who are going through similar struggles in their life.

Personally this album triumphs their last, because it feels like they have become somewhat more refined in their songwriting, and also this albums is capable of emotionally moving you and making you think. Camp Cope have become more of a well-known band over these last two years to due to their solid releases on Bandcamp, however I see this album being their most pivotel and most important to their progression.

February 2018 | Top 5 Albums of the Month

Ezra Furman - Transangelic Exodus5) Ezra Furman – ‘Transangelic Exodus’

I nearly didn’t listen to this album, which would’ve been a stupid thing to do. This is Ezra Furman’s seventh album release, and judging from what I’ve been hearing and reading, this is his best work to date. The album has a blistering cinematic sound and feel to it all, as each track seems tailored made for the big screen. The album takes you through a story as each song seems to have a clear narrative. There’s also some cool elements worked into album, much of them being electronic and provide that big sound. Also Ezra’s vocal performance on each track is consistently good, as you can really feel the emotion he gives off. Listen Here.

Anna Burch Quite the Curse4) Anna Burch – ‘Quit the Curse’

This was the solo debut for Anna Burch, after stints with the bands Failed Flowers and Frontier Ruckus she finally flew from the nest and went solo. Quit The Curse is a fantastic debut album as it has such a laid back mellow feel to it and is easily digestable. With it’s indie pop hooks and softer than velvet vocals the album just seems to breeze through you. Clear reference points for the record would be The Softies and perhaps a the more gentle side of The Pastels. However Anna easily puts her own stamp on each track, creating an album which has given her a new coat of paint, as it’s clear she’s took a step away from her old folk roots. Listen Here

MGMT Little Dark Age Album3) MGMT – ‘Little Dark Age’

MGMT have been a much loved act ever since their debut album Oracular Spectacular which featured tracks like ‘Electric Feel’, ‘Kids’ and ‘Time To Pretend’ all of which have become indie favourites. However since those releases it seems that the band have tried to distance themselves as far away as possible from that genre, as they’ve delved into various different styles – avoiding the mainstream. Little Dark Age however feels like a step in the right direction. Once again the band continue to push their boundaries by doing something different, however this time it feels like it has more substance. The album is a really dark and gothic twist on pop music, with sinister synths and haunting vocals.  The album has some great tracks like ‘Little Dark Age’ , ‘TSLAMP’ and a personal favourite ‘Me and Michael’, yet it’s not just these tracks as the whole album makes a wonderful listening experience. Listen Here

Table Scraps - autonomy2) Table Scraps – ‘Autonomy’

Ever since I heard this record back in November before its release, I couldn’t wait for the day it was available to everyone because I knew the band had a fantastic album on their hands. Table Scraps as a band embody chaos, and this record is just further proof as it solidifies that statement. Each track comes full with a heavy hook and spooky vocals that sound like they’re coming directly from a ghoul. With songs like ‘My Obsession’ and ‘Sick Of Me’ it’s not hard to  see these going down amazingly well with a live audience. Table Scraps made another big step with the release of their second album, and I can see it being a very important one. Read the review here. Listen Here

silver dollar moment1) The Orielles – ‘Silver Dollar Moment’

Finally the album of the month has to be The Orielles exquisite debut album Silver Dollar Moment. Not only because it’s great record from top to bottom, but because it’s been a long time coming and they’ve delivered without faltering at any stage. The Orielles stay very loyal to the sound that made them so revered by their fans, yet they manipulated their sound in a number of different ways to create a very varied album which is highly enjoyable. For instance songs like ‘Sunflower Seeds’ sounds sunkissed and beautiful, while ‘Borrachero Tree’ has a slightly darker edge to it – but it has that Orielles lo-fi indie garage disco sound (if there’s such a genre). Can honestly see this being in contention for album of the year in December, so it had to be number one this month. Full Review Here.  Listen Here

That concludes this months Top 5 Albums, would love to know your thoughts so please leave a comment below!

EP Review | Pale Waves – ‘ALL THE THINGS I NEVER SAID’

Pale Waves - All the things I never saidSince the middle of last year Pale Waves have been highly anticipated to make their surge into the conscious minds of every music fan. After being dubbed as one of the best up and coming acts in the UK, their debut EP ‘ALL THE THINGS I NEVER SAID’ has had a close eye kept on it.

Pale Waves dive head first into that synth-dance vibe which is combined with vocals that have been coated with reverb. Pale Waves however have enough personality and style to t carve themselves their own corner in this in the genre. Yes, it could be seen as 1975 rip-off but Pale Waves bring something different to the table.

First of all the vocals across the entire EP are angelic as their dipped in sugar, yet combined with the feel of the band it gives a great contrast to their style. For example ‘New Years Eve’ has a very dark underbelly but it’s delivered in the sweetest of ways.

My Obsession’ is a heartbreaking tale of a girl obsessed with someone, easily relatable. The vocals seem to drift around an ocean of overdriven guitars providing a certain lost feel.

The EP also has some easy-to-dance-to hooks, as the guitar swirls around that teeny bop vibe making it incredibly infectious. ‘The Tide’ has summer driven riff which wouldn’t look out of place on a 1975 track – but that’s okay. The same can be said for the closer ‘Heavenly’ as this also shares those same qualities, as it end the EP on a high.

The EP won’t be breaking any ground or re-inventing the wheel, but the record at its very core is a great pop EP. I can easily this easily rubbing a lot of 1975 haters the wrong way, but it’s not for them. Although I don’t see myself dancing around the room to it any time soon, I can take it for what it is, which is good pop music. Can easily see this being a big first step for Pale Waves this year, as I’m sure there will be more coming.

Album Review | Table Scraps – ‘Autonomy’

Table Scraps are a band that have been on the cusp of something big for quite some time. Since their early releases ‘Bug’ and ‘Electricity’ , which led them to their debut album More Time For Strangers. This was a rather successful release, gaining some great reviews from The Line of Best Fit and Louder Than War, as it had a raw edge to it which was combined with a very loud and abrasive approach. However as good as that album was, it sometimes takes several good releases to earn a great reputation, which is what Autonomy will do.

The album sees the band play to their strengths and once again return to those animalistic hooks along with those mind-thumping drum parts.  The album opens up with the leading single from the album ‘Sick of Me’ which has these really straight guitars combined with these Strokes-like Lo-Fi vocals, as they sound extremely muffled which add to the texture of the song. The solo on the track is also noteworthy, even though it does only last for a short time it’s still great hearing it.

It continues with this tone throughout the album, as these fast paced tracks just seem to roll by while causing a riot along the way. The evil sounding hook on the following song ‘Always Right’ sounds so sinister, it’s perfect. ‘I’m a Failure’ has certain anthemic feel to it, as you could easily hear a crowd shouting the line “I’m a Failure” straight back at the band at a live performance.

There’s definitely a punk streak running through this album as a lot of the songs come under the 3 minute line, with ‘Lyin’ Thru Yer Teeth’ and ‘Frankenstein’ falling under the 2 minute mark. However this factor doesn’t harm the overall product in the slightest, as ‘Lyin’ Thru Yer Teeth’ is one of the highlights of the album, purely because of the punky hookline that could easily cause a riot.

The vocal work is something that is consistant throughout the entire record, as it sounds like they’re trapped and isoloted-only adding to the haunting essence that band carry off so well.

‘Treat Me Like Shit’ is another standout performer on the album, as once again the sound of the guitar along with the hook mesh so well together with the vocals-achieving that trademark Table Scraps sound. You also have this cool element in the background which sounds like a satellite going out of control adding depth to the track.

The record finishes off with ‘Do It All Over Again’ which could be seen as a message to go ahead and play the record from the very start. Even though it’s not the heaviest track on the album, it’s increasingly catchy with a lo-fi tinge. Table Scraps manage to walk across several genres witout it sounding contrived, it seems they’ve unearthed this original sound that’s exclusive to them and it’s very natural. Yes there are bands that sound somewhat similar, however combined with the vocals it gives them a completly different energy.

This album is another convincing argument to why Table Scraps are so damn good, to do it over two albums is impressive and should be recognised. The band firmly have a unique sound and know the lengths that they can go to with it, which will be interesting to see where else they can take it. Their music is so in your face and carefree, it’s not hard to understand why their gigs can be so hectic. It’s another great outing for Table Scraps, one that will definitely gain them even more well deserved recognition. Onwards and Upwards!
