On go the relentless offerings of new music…
Circa Waves are releasing their debut album, “Young Chasers”. Thrilling, rousing tunes that make me think of being a teenager again! It’s not groundbreaking music, but it is carefree and energetic, which bodes well for their future! They’re touring in April, so get along to see them if you can!
After a 48 year gap, The Sonics are well and truly back with their new album “This is The Sonics“. Nostalgic but not in that horribly obvious way, playful without being stupid, and an abundance of zeal. This is a great example of how to pick up where you left off nearly half a century ago, without skipping a beat! Nice one, guys!
Finally, Lower Dens bring us another beauty of an album this week, in the form of “Escape from Evil“. Dreamy, cohesive, intoxicating music accompanied by rich, eloquent, sultry vocals (think Stevie Nicks crossed with Anna Calvi). This is an absolute aural pleasure.
