Description

There is no exception for not being familiar with Arcade Fire’s ‘Funeral’ [2004]. If you are in anyway a follower of alternative or indie music you will fall in love with what many consider to be the Canadian band’s masterpiece, also their debut. The somber and reflective tone of the record’s first half (as well as it’s title) is influenced by the death surrounding the band at the time of recording.
Whilst the album’s second half acts as the overture of creative force that makes this an eclectic and diverse article of alternative, indie rock.

Description

Beck Hansen continues to ride the wave of popularity and acclaim that began to gather motion over 20 years ago. In that time he has presented us with 8 studio albums, however, instead of making cult appearances on shows like the Simpsons and Futurama, like in the beginning, he is now finding himself involved in celebrity nightmares at awards ceremonies with the likes of Kanye West. Some things never change though, and his [2008] release ’Modern Guilt’ [2008] is a reminder of why we fell in love with Beck in the first place. In what is a wholly complete 21st Century pop album, Beck zig zags between genres, 60’s love, 90’s alternative rock and all the decades in-between. Working with Danger Mouse, he creates something enjoyable for Beck Hansen newcomers whilst also gifting an album worthy of his discography for the fans.

___

Dunedin’s punk sons of the modern age, Die! Die! Die! are ready to bust through the back door with their fifth album under their grubby arm pits, stoked as punch to have pulled together their next blistering installment in the Die! Die! Die! legacy.

‘SWIM’ is an 11 track opus formed from the wall-sweat of Europe’s best clubs, scratched off the tour van floor and from down the back of the couch-surfed accom. Produced by the band and Chris Townend (Portishead, D12, Violent Femmes) from The Lab in Auckland to Lightship 95 in London, SWIM’s sparse geographical consummation is as expansive as their definition of punk and pop music. As an internet acronym for ‘someone who isn’t me’, SWIM’s title suggests that Andrew Wilson is stepping out of his own comfort zone lyrically and bringing new themes and broader strokes to the mighty crash and boom of Die! Die! Die!’s sound. Indeed he has described it himself as “an album about surviving... which is very positive”.

A monster of an album, JPL are back in action with a full-force assault of our sound systems. Pure Jetplane start to finish, riff after riff after riff!

The band took a break from playing live in 2007 and return to public view six years later with this new record 'Don't Try' and new drummer Craig McKean (ex-Fighting With Wire). A taut, visceral art-rock affair 'Don't Try' draws easiest comparison to the bands work on fan-favourite EP 'Els Quatre Gats' [2002] however offers elements from the band's entire recorded output so far.

Recalling At The Drive-In, Refused and Sonic Youth their sound distills The Rapture’s most intense moments and Nirvana’s grooviest. Piercing, high vocals punctuate visceral, off-beat drumming, which Les Inrockuptibles describe as “Shrill and convulsive rock that makes you dance like you have a gun to your head”.
