This could almost be the Who, the way it kicks off, then falls into a bit of a Parquet Courts vibe. Don’t listen to Fontaines DC, this is so much better with a killer hook. Talking about Fontaines DC, why is everybody banging on about them, they’ve arrived on the coat tails of much better bands.
4 Christian Fitness – Real Tennis (45)
Mainly included because they have a great name and who writes songs about real tennis, good enough for inclusion on those two points.
Very funky piece of current Italo House, BOP lives for hearing this sort of this tune. Quite simply it makes the world a better place ,and by god do we need that. Imagine if we could get rid of Putin and Trump and have Italo 12″s running the world.
Sunderland post-punk 4-piece, this is what they say on the You Tube, sounds about right. Their new record sees the band expand on previous material, stripping down the post-punk format and remodelling it for current generation. Whilst their vernacular might make The Futureheads an easy (albeit apt) comparison, there is an added breathless intensity and intricacy to their instrumentation that calls to mind the likes of Omni or Gang of Four.

LOVE & SADNESS . EP
There is something strangely magical about the weirdness of the musical world Graham Domain lives; a throwback to the days of the 80s when Japan and Black skirted around the regions of the hit parade; a soothing charade of yesterdays bedsit clothes and art school glamour songs to lose yourself in; to bathe in the afterglow of a pure sadness; an LP to soundtrack falling in and out of love to and an LP to fall in love with.
