Dork Jukebox: Matt Maltese, The Horrors, Estrons and more
On to the business of this week's bangers.
Published: 6:23 am, August 13, 2017
Now then, Reader. On to the business of the week’s bangers. It’s a good haul this week, even if we do say so ourselves. We’ve got new tunes from L.A Witch, The Horrors, The National, Alice Glass, New Carnival, Liam Gallagher, Queens of the Stone Age, Estrons, Suzi Wu, and Bad Nerves, plus Hinds have done a cover of ‘Caribbean Moon’ for our listening pleasure.
On top of that, our Matt Maltese announced a headline tour, plus Skepta, Baio, Bloody Knees, Tigercub, Sløtface, Thumpers, and Catholic Action all put out videos for us to watch with our eyes. Skepta even co-directed his, and set a room on fire in the process (don’t worry, no Skeptas were harmed in the making of the clip).
Oh, and our dearly departed faves The Maccabees are releasing a box set. Everyone will want to get their mitts on that.
Check everything out in this week’s playlist.
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.
