Their star should only shine brighter from here.

Label: Memphis Industries
Released: 20th January 2017
Rating: ★★★★

It’s hard to work out exactly what a fair level of appreciation would be for Menace Beach. Their debut, 2015’s ‘Ratworld’, was one of the best of the year - a nugget of solid dirty gold, capable of dazzling in the light. ‘Lemon Memory’ is no less special.

Slightly odder, but equally confident in its delivery, its the sound of a band sure of their footing, knowing exactly who they want to be. Scuzzy, weird pop that manages to hit all corners, with two safely tucked in the top drawer, their star should only shine brighter from here. Stephen Ackroyd

Think you know Fontaines D.C.? The Dubliners' second album sees them not just rewrite their own rulebook, but tear it up and throw it away.
