October Summary

Hi there.

It’s been another hectic month for Sounds Like… We’ve been reviewing releases all over the shop, so let’s do a wee roundup of all we covered and missed out on, and look ahead to what’s coming up in November.

EP Corner got two new additions: Harry Heart‘s First Endorphin, and This Must Mean Something Awful by Mt. Doubt. Both were really enjoyable listens, and now I think about it the artists are actually quite similar in style and tone. Check them both out for some essential autumn listening.

We reviewed three albums this month – first was the eclectic Impossible Stuff by Carla J. Easton, a really diverse album which keeps you guessing at every turn. mewithoutYou‘s [Untitled] blew us away, earning itself a 10/10. Stop reading this article and go listen to that album right now. As autumn closed in around us, the debut album by Paper Machine MusicGlimpse felt very appropriate.

There were a few albums we didn’t have time to write about, namely Black Peaks‘ second record All That DividesVI by You Me At Six, and Basement‘s excellent new album Beside MyselfDrenge also gifted us with a new EP, Autonomy, which is definitely worth your time.

So what about November?

Those paying attention will notice that we’ve already put out one album review this month, for Looking Forward To Looking Back, the second album by Utah rock band Cinders. In the coming weeks, we’ll be reviewing new records by ArchitectsBeerjacket and Errant Boy, as well as some others which are in the pipeline.

November is the start of the winter gig season, so we’ll be at plenty of gigs. On Friday we went to see Fatherson play a sold out show in support of new album Sum Of All Your Parts at the Barrowland Ballroom. It was an incredible gig, and quite emotional to watch given that we’ve seen the band grow from playing tiny basements to iconic venues. Coming up we’ll be seeing Lewis CapaldiWe Were Promised Jetpacks, Christine & The Queens and You Me At Six for their Take Off Your Colours anniversary tour. Make sure you follow Sounds Like… on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for coverage of those events.

One final note. The video for ‘Julia (or, ‘Holy to the LORD’ on the Bells of Horses)‘ is amazing, watch it below.

That’s all we’ve got planned just now, but as always we welcome album and EP submissions – soundslikeblog@outlook.com – for review, so do get in touch if you’re an artist or label with a release coming out soon.

Thanks for reading!
