Arcade Fire - WE
WE paradoxically distills “the longest we’ve ever spent writing, uninterrupted, probably ever" (per the band’s Win Butler) into a concise 40 minute epic – one as much about the forces that threaten to pull us away from the people we love, as it is inspired by the urgent need to overcome them. Picture Disc version is in stock now.
Tony Allen (1940 – 2020) 'has long been acknowledged as Africa's finest drummer and one of the continent's most influential musicians. Together with Fela Kuti (with whom he played for 15 years) Allen co-created Afrobeat - the hard-driving, horns-rich, funk-infused, politically insurrectionary style which became such a dominant force in African music and such an influence worldwide.'
His 2009 album Secret Agent has been remastered on 180gm vinyl.
Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever return in 2022 with Endless Rooms, the Melbourne quintet's third album proper.
'Still drawing from the canon of jangly, guitar-centric 1980s college rock, the Melbourne band's latest infuses the easygoing vibe with nuanced political songwriting. Most bands are distinguished by their frontperson; Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever are distinguished by the absence of one.' Pitchfork

One of our favs in recent years New York trio Sunflower Bean - vocalist and bassist Julia Cumming (she/her), guitarist and vocalist Nick Kivlen (he/him), and drummer Olive Faber (she/they) – rel'ease their long-awaited third album Headful of Sugar via Lucky Number.
A psychedelic headrush, fuelled by the agony and ecstasy of contemporary American life, Headful of Sugar is about outsiders disillusioned with the modern world who, despite their alienation, refuse to be subdued; buoyed by the relief found in interpersonal relationships that counteract the daily barrage of cheap entertainment and convenience.'
