Listening to the new Arctic monkeys and enjoying reading reviews trying to justify it's greatness when actually it's a bit bobbins.

See also the new Jack White album.

I've never been much of an Arctic Monkeys fan but the stuff I've heard from the new album is terrible. Much like their laughable new look.

Exactly the same boat as you! After I attended Record Store Day a couple of weeks back and seeing lots of cool album covers, Ive been discovering all sort of new stuff.

Here's a selection of what I'm currently listening too...

South Korean surf-rock band Say Sue Me




Guarantee this song's chorus will be stuck in your head...




The Shacks are mostly inspired by old music. The production on their new album Haze sounds all warm and fuzzy




Jon Hopkins new album Singularity sounds more of the same, but still a nice listen

The new Parquet Courts is Excellent. It's funky, it's punky, it's a cheeky monkey!

Really enjoying the solo album "Year of the Tiger" by Alter Bridge singer Myles Kennedy. A superb acoustic blues approach with some exceptional songs.


Here's a short review I wrote for my blog:-

Thanks for that. Didn't know he'd released a solo album. Instant purchase after I watched this, even though the acoustic isn't on the album.

New Gruff Rhys album is gorgeous and the Angelique Kidjo remake of Talking Heads Remain in Light is inspired

No problem. Even though I've heard of Alter Bridge, I've never actually listened to their stuff. There are plenty of good videos relating to the album on YouTube, including a 35 minute making of that is an interesting watch.

I would like to recommend Roan Ash who is a singer from South Africa, which is probably why he is so under the radar that music-map.com doesn't even know who he is.

His 7 track EP/Album Whiskey To My Soul was released back in March and has some really good songs on it including the one below If I Ever Saw Heaven.

I like that it is oddly addictive. For some reason it makes me want to relisten to songs from Miranda Lamber's most recent album The Weight of These Wings; especially Vice, Running Just in Case and Ugly Lights.

I've been really enjoying the album by Tom Grennan called Lighting Matches. In a way it feels very old while also sounding fresh and new at the same time. I don't know anything about the artist but I can recommend giving the album a listen.

I do like to recommend the under the radar artists so this time I would like to highly recommend Andrew Belle.. He has had three albums released: The Ladder, Black Bear and Dive Deep. But if you take my advice, in order to put together the best Andrew Belle playlist you should definitely check out the Hushed EP version of Black Bear which has some really great stripped down versions of the songs from the admittedly over produced album versions. Add to that the first three tracks from The Daylight EP. Also there are the singles In My Veins and the recently released cover of Fade Into You. There is also a Hushed EP version of the Dive Deep album on the horizon that I'm looking forward to.

I'm not really a twisted sister fan but the doc about them on Netflix is excellent. They really, really worked their socks off to become successful.

I've recently found Arcane Roots who are the best band i've listened to in years. Meloncholia Hymns is simply stunning.



This is my favourite - no video though:
