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.

Their debut album ‘The Witch’ was a critical darling, but with its arrival came news that changed everything for Pumarosa. Now back with a second album which rips up expectation; they’re a band reborn.
Nearly 15 years after forming, Foals have just released their most outward-looking record to date, heralding a new era of social accountability, visceral lyrics and a commitment to saving our dying planet. That's if Yannis doesn't do himself another mischief first…
