I thought it might be nice to do a monthly roundup of what’s been going on. That way we can glance over some of the releases I didn’t have to time to fully review, and look ahead to what’s coming up.
So September. We were pretty busy!
Fatherson‘s third album Sum Of All Your Parts was our first review of the month, followed closely by The Dirty Nil‘s Master Volume. We also reviewed They’re Not Secrets Anymore, the debut album by Last Wild Lion. And finally, we gave the full 10/10 treatment to Christine And The Queens‘ new record Chris.
After all that, there were still four releases we didn’t get round to. Boston Manor‘s second album Welcome To The Neighbourhood was pretty solid, but suffered in comparison to its predecessor. The surprise package of the month was My Mind Makes Noises by Pale Waves, which I wasn’t expecting much from but I found utterly captivating.
The More I Sleep, The Less I Dream by We Were Promised Jetpacks didn’t grab me straight away but is growing on me the more I listen to it, no doubt I’ll be raving about it by next month. The eponymous debut from Black Honey was a very enjoyable listen, full of dirty riffs and party anthems.
Let’s move on to look and what’s coming up.
The next installment of EP Corner will be with you in the next few days – a review of Harry Heart‘s First Endorphin EP, as will Carla J. Easton‘s new album Impossible Stuff.
This week also sees Black Peaks, mewithoutYou and You Me At Six release their latest albums, so we’ll be very busy trying to cover as many of those as possible. You can also look forward to a review of Paper Machine Music‘s debut record Glimpse.
That’s all we’ve got planned, but as always we welcome album and EP submissions – firstname.lastname@example.org – for review, so no doubt the list will expand before we know it!
See you soon!
