Dork Jukebox: LCD Soundsystem, Beth Ditto, INHEAVEN and more
Your rundown of all the bangers pumping on the Dork stereo this week.
Published: 12:14 pm, May 06, 2017
Now then. Are we sitting comfortably? It’s wall-to-wall bangers this week, with new’uns from Beth Ditto, Wavves, At The Drive In, INHEAVEN and Grizzly Bear. Meanwhile, our faves Get Inuit refused to grow up with ‘All My Friends’, Kasabian unleashed ‘Ill Ray (The King)’ on an unsuspecting public, and Angel Haze showed off her visual art skills in the mammoth new video for ‘Resurrection’. And have you heard the new single from Bournemouth indie-pop duo Dumb Lovers? It’s a beauty.
As if that wasn’t enough to be getting on with, we also got caught up in the battle between love and jealousy with Estrons, teamed up with our pals at Heavy Pop to bring Palace to Reading, and absolutely, 100% lost our minds when the banger klaxon sounded once again for not just one but two new tracks from LCD Soundsystem. (We’ve composed ourselves a bit now, but we’re still head over heels for James Murphy and co.) Then there are those glorious live dates from (Sandy) Alex G to scope out while we get ready for our mates Husky Loops to raise the Dork flag and hit the road for a three-date whistle stop tour.
Whew. Got all that? Lovely. You can check it all out on our handy playlist over on Spotify, too.
Don’t say we never do anything for you.
Give all this a try
The Murder Capital are a band that arrived with expectation. Before their first track dropped, word of mouth had already begun to spread about five men from Dublin kicking up a fuss.
Sam Fender is a man on a mission. Already beating current ‘biggest noise on the block’ Lewis Capaldi to a Brit Award, as his debut album nears its much-anticipated arrival, the sky really is the limit for an artist not short of stuff to say.
It’s over eight years since Friendly Fires released their last album, but - after a prolonged period away - they’re finally
back on the dancefloor with the shimmering ‘Inflorescent’.
His new album isn't too far off, either.
