IT’S the latest brilliantly wonky full-covers project from Wayne Coyne, Steven Drozd and the boys, whose new heady fwend is budding Canada-via-Yorkshire songsmith Nell, in the company of whom they’ve taken on the catalogue of no lesser a god of the darker side than Nick Cave himself. With that full album of Cave covers, Where …

TO FLIP the orbs from the bright orange to the white, and after that impossibly catchy previous A in particular, “Texas Sun”, Khruangbin are once again joining forces with Leon Bridges for an EP outing; this time entitled Texas Moon, out on February 18th. And after the bright sunbliss of that quartet of songs that …

IT WAS a real boon for lovers of expansive, harmonic, suede-jacketed Americana back in October when Denton, Texas’s Midlake announced they were reconvening for their first album in jeez, nine years, For the Sake of Bethel Woods. Too long, guys, too long. And it seems like the coming back together stems at least partly from …

BORN and brought up in somewhere he notes as being Nowhere, Florida – trouble is indeed, a lonesome town – and currently using the musculature god blessed him with as a construction worker in New Orleans, Thomas Dollbaum has brought his sights to bear upon the world of music with an absolute heart-wrencher of a …

But he does it with …

LOS ANGELINO bedroom pop genius Alyssa Gengos is basically someone to completely watch in 2022. We’ve already nailed our colours to that mast on the back of her last single, the effortlessly excellent “Gothenburg English” – see our swooning coverage of that, here; and making us feel a whole lot more like we haven’t made …

DELICATE Glaswegian songsmith C Duncan has doubled down on the glitter of last month’s single, “Alluvium”, with just one more song to round off the year and to keep you abreast of happenings connected with his next album, due in the new year on Bella Union. The track is called “The Wedding Song” and it’s romantic, …

WITH our ears still ringing and our souls still swooning while getting our heads round last year’s conceptual triple album, Tautology, (No! come back this instant! For it (post) rocks so hard and so delicately, by turns – hey, read our review and have a listen if you don’t believe us) El Ten Eleven, the Southern …
