New Release Roundup 3rd August 2018

Interpol – Number 10:

Another great track from New York indie legends Interpol. Paul still has it vocally, with his performance here being as strong and emotional as ever. 80%

No Rome – Saint Laurent: A well produced, very pleasant and nicely sung but in my opinion ‘Saint Laurent’ is a bit of a dull and uninspired track here from No Rome. I like the ending though with the nice guitary instrumental. 65%

Robyn – Missing U: I quite like this new song by Robyn but it isnt quite the banger i was expecting. It has a really lovely, twinkly instrumental however and a very good hook. I think its a grower. 65%

Black Honey – Midnight: Midnight is a disco-pop banger done very well. Black Homey’s debut album could be a bit more varied than i had anticipated. Sound of the summer potential. Nice. 80%

Yonaka – Waves: An absolute banger of a song from Yonaka here. A really groovy bassline and pounding drums give the track a dark tinge, with singer Theresa Jarvis’ vocals really pushing the track up another level. 90%

Ten Tonnes – G.I.V.E. – An very, very catchy summery indie-pop cut from Ten Tonnes sounding a bit like The Magic Gang but in a good way. 75%

Neneh Cherry – Kong: With amazing production on this track by 3D of Massive Attack and Four Tet, Neneh has put together a really interesting, brilliant track, with her vocals perfectly complimenting the great, minimalistic instrumental. 95%

Kid Bookie – Shake Up EP: A very solid grime EP from Bookie here, packing so much into a collection of tracks that only lasts about 15 minutes is no small feat? The highlight for me is the emotional, honest ending track. His most cohesive project to date. 80%

Gengahr – Live LP: A great little live album recorded on tour before recording their lastest album, with tracks from that being played for the first time as well as some faves from their debut. Very lovely. 90%
