Here is a list of some of the latest albums and reissues we recommend you check out!
HEY! HELLO! – HEY! HELLO! TOO!
Power pop rockers Hey! Hello! unleash their second album ‘HEY! HELLO! TOO!’ Formed by the English singer-songwriter and guitarist, Ginger Wildheart, the band have kicked off the album by releasing lead single ‘Let’s Get Emotional’ characterized by its sing along chorus and heavy riffing guitars.
PRETENDERS – ALONE
Pretenders release their first album in 8 years and reveal a new bluesy direction, alongside the influence of Ohio native Dan Auerbach (Black Keys). ‘Alone’ melds Nashville basement R&B with raw pop melodies and features Johnny Cash’s former bassist Dave Roe.
NOFX – FIRST DITCH EFFORT
NOFX open up to fans about drug abuse, depression and emotional turmoil in their confessional new album ‘First Ditch Effort’. The California punk rockers unearth new ground with harsh vocals, anarchic guitars and raucous tub thumping on ‘First Ditch Effort’.
DATURA4 – HAIRY MOUNTAIN
West Australian rock n rollers tip their hats to the trippy 70’s blues scene in this ten track psych fest. With elements of hard lined-blues and boogie executed with psyche sparsity, this is one throwback that is worth your attention.
HUGH CORNWELL AND JOHN COOPER CLARKE
Hugh Cornwell and John Cooper Clarke team up to release ‘This Time It’s Personal’ featuring a lighthearted cover of the Lieber and Stoller classic Love Potion #9. Check out the anthemic single ‘MacArthur Park’ featuring a violently played piano and wistful lead vocal from Clarke.
BLACK MOODS – MEDICINE
Alternative rock trio Black Moods released their innovative debut album ‘Medicine’ earlier this year reaching high avail in their local Arizonian music scene. The release succeeds in reinvigorating the raw energy and emotion of old school rock.
BLACK GRAPE – IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER
Taken from the three-disc Deluxe Edition of one of the greatest British albums of the 1990s, Black Grape’s ‘It’s Great When You’re Straight…Yeah’ this track features grooving basslines and rhythmical drums resonant of the Madchester scene. Featuring Happy Mondays‘ Shaun Ryder and Bez alongside Paul “Kermit” Leveridge, this track is playful, uplifting and unique.
