Welcome back ladies. “Sleater-Kinney are one of the great rock bands and No Cities To Love is the perfect comeback: a treat for die-hard fans as well, a perfect introduction for newcomers – and what a journey that’ll be.” (via Drowned In Sound)
I dabble in the black arts from time to time, but I wouldn’t consider myself a legit metal fan. Deafheavan’s 2013 LP, Sunbather, was a surprise favorite of mine and they’ve done it again with this year’s New Bermuda. I can’t really put a finger on it, but there’s something about Deafheaven that speaks to me. I have absolutely no idea what George Clark and company are screaming about, but I love it and the guitar and drum work are irresistible.
A few of my favorite new releases this week, including the latest from Fanfarlo, the Kid Cudi and Dot da Genius side-project/experiment WZRD, and The Cranberries’ first studio album in 10 (long) years . As always, you’ll definitely want to check out the much more comprehensive list of this week’s releases over at Largehearted Boy. Enjoy.
