Dork Jukebox: The Cribs, Liam Gallagher, Arcade Fire and more

Massive week this one, folks. It’s a good job music’s gone digital, otherwise we might have drowned in CD singles with all this new stuff about.
The resurrection is on this week, with Liam Gallagher dropping his comeback track ‘Wall of Glass’ alongside his first ever solo tour. R’kid isn’t the only heavyweight to bring us new stuff though; we’ve also got tunes from The Cribs, Broken Social Scene, The War on Drugs, Lorde, Foo Fighters, and Radiohead. There’s even more new tracks from Mr Jukes, Rae Morris, Femme, Sløtface, Allison Weiss, , and Barns Courtney, and Sea Girls have released their debut single proper (it’s a banger, by the way). Oh, and let’s not forget about that Arcade Fire comeback, yeah?
Oh Wonder announced a huge fifty date world tour, Bad Sounds are hitting the road in November – including a show for us in Reading! – and SWMRS have announced they’ll be back on our rainy little island in September and October for a run of shows. We’ve also got videos from Chastity Belt, Mura Masa, and Vagabon, while London Grammar dropped not one but TWO new videos for ‘Oh Woman Oh Man’.
See? We told you it was a massive week. You can catch up with our handy playlist below, and follow our Jukebox on Spotify to get the freshest of cuts every week.

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…
