Juliana Hatfield
Hey Babe (25th Anniversary Edition)

Looks like the folk at American Laundromat have taken great care with this 25th Anniversary re-issue of Juliana Hatfield's much-loved debut. it comes on purple vinyl, housed in gatefold vinyl and has been remastered from the original quarter inch tapes. What better way to enjoy reliving those old times with the likes of Mike Watt and Evan Dando as guests.

Mansion Of Snakes / Brooders
Mating Season / Lie

The latest in Come Play With Me's series of split 7"s is a double-header courtesy of Leeds' own avant-jazz scallywags Mansion Of Snakes and the heavy, heady psych-grunge brew of Brooders. MoS are in fact a 12-piece monster who blend the devil's funk, face-melting jazz and afro-beat influences -- complete with bone-rattling percussiveness and a shedload of bass. Get in!

Cabbage
The Extended Play of Cruelty

Following on from their long sold out Record Store Day collection of early singles and *that* horrific assault allegation, Manchester lad punk outfit Cabbage return with a five track EP of their increasingly popular indie rock. Now signed to Infectious it looks like we are now in for the long haul.

The Fall
Levitate

Unsurprisingly, Mark E. Smith fell out with Kier Stewart and Simon Spencer, the production duo initially chosen to produce Levitate. Lack of payment meant that The Fall’s 19th album disappeared with the the pair. An album was finished but only three tracks survived from rehearsal sessions including Spencer, which Mark E. Smith renamed Spencer Must Die! Levitate was the last album to feature bassist Steve Hanley and drummer Karl Burns, both had been with the group long enough to help shape the sound of The Fall. 3LP or 2CD on Cherry Red, remastered by Andy Pearce with sleeve notes by Daryl Easlea.

LUMP
LUMP

Mike Lindsay (Tunng etc) was probably pretty chuffed that he got introduced to ace songstress Laura Marling at a glittering show supporting Neil Young. Whereas I would have mumbled a few platitudes before fleeing the building, Lindsay became pally and the two decided to collaborate on a collaboration of wonked out guitars, moogs and wordplay. And is that a dog on the sleeve? We need to know.

Vital Idles
Left Hand

Scottish art-punks Vital Idles follow up some promising EPs with a debut LP for solid-as-a-rock imprint Upset The Rhythm (John Maus, No Age). The lean, erudite no-wave of Left Hand recalls fellow Glaswegian legends Life Without Buildings. Singer Jessica Higgins does a good line of combining the plainly-spoken delivery of Alanna McArdle with the abstract diatribes of the late Mark E Smith.

Palm Springs
No Love Is Ever Lost

Palm Springs are from London and from Brighton, where they seem to have tapped into a deep lineage of guitar-focused classic indie rock. But with a few licks of electronica around the edges too! No Love Is Ever Lost is released on 12” vinyl via an imprint operated by Palm Springs themselves: Random Acts Of Vinyl.

Melvins
Stag

A welcome vinyl reissue of 1996's Stag; Melvins' 8th studio album and the last to be released on a major label (they were dropped by Atlantic the following year). American trio / sometimes four-piece Melvins were named after a supermarket supervisor that a band member worked under, and despised. Get yourself hooked up with this double gatefold edition, mastered from the original analog tapes. Or, the single LP (as per the original pressing) on Music On Vinyl.

Joan Of Arc
1984

Yellow vinyl? Hello sailor. This limited-edition release from Chicago's Joan of Arc, out of Joyful Noise, is a sidestep from the indie band's usual output, complete with almost-a capella performances from vocalist Melina Ausikaitis. Backed up with sparse instrumentation, Ausikaitis' Midwest twang swings from soft and gentle to a fearsome roar. A great listen.

Nirvana
Nirvana

‘Nirvana’ was released following the settlement of a long standing legal dispute between Courtney Love and remaining Nirvana members Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl, centered around the release format of the song ‘You Know You’re Right’ which was recorded at the band's last session in 1994. This is Nirvana’s first release since the death of Kurt Cobain to feature studio material.

Daniel Blumberg
Minus

Daniel Blumberg. Not a name we now well but he's already played in the likes of Yuck, Oupra and Hebronix. Further selling points are that Blumberg had a hospitalization just before recording the record and also broke up with his long term partner weeks before so expect some pretty raw emotional songwriting on this debut.

Paul Draper
Live at Scala

Once of Britpop middleweights Mansun, Paul Draper made a return to the fray in the mid-2010s with two EPs and a UK top-twenty album Spooky Action. This live record, recorded at London’s Scala (surprise surprise), sees Draper tear through his Jeff Buckley-ish solo stuff as well as wheeling out some of the old guns. Features nice versions of ‘Wide Open Space’ and ‘I Can Only Disappoint U’.

Various
Typical Girls Volume Three

Emotional Response has had great success so far with their girls-to-the-front compilation series Typical Girls, so much so that they have been deluged with a wealth of the highest grade material from punks and post-punks and now have enough material for two more editions! Wasting no time, they are consequently releasing volumes 3 and 4 simultaneously! Volume 3 features ace artists like Rata Negra, Sick Bags and Karen Meat.
  • Vinyl LP (ER70LP)

Medistation
Medistation EP

Medistation is Eric Strand from Swedish band The Orange Revival. The self-titled EP ploughs the noise pop and alt. rock furrows conjuring up something Alan McGhee would have loved to sign to Creation. We’re talking The Jesus and Mary Chain, early Primal Scream and Spiritualized. Jake Garcia of The Black Angels and Cobian Modeste from The Buttertones make guest appearances. 5-track 12” EP on Fuzz Club.

Warmduscher
Whale City

Warmduscher is various London people hanging out and recording something they feel is Really Important no doubt aided and abetted by a truckload of cocaine. They contain members of the Fat White Family and Insecure Men and this debut full length has been described as a rock opera that could send you into outer space. For fans of S.M.A.S.H etc.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Something Else

Something Else is the first of two full-length albums promised to us by The Brian Jonestown Massacre in 2018. After dabbling in experimentation - using Brazilian and Middle Eastern Music along with shoegaze as inspiration for a couple of albums, Anton Newcombe returns to the sound his fans know and love. 180g white vinyl LP and CD on ’a’ Recordings.

Sam Evian
You, Forever

From the music of his sophomore LP You, Forever, It’s easy to see how New York songwriter Sam Evian has scored opening slots for bands like Whitney and Teenage Fanclub. The influence of the former is particularly strong on this album, a collection of wistful jangles that owes quite a debt to bands like The Byrds. The reel-to-reel machine used to track You, Forever lends the record a nice sheen of authenticity too.

The Neighbourhood
The Neighbourhood

Californian pop-rockers The Neighbourhood drop their third LP via Columbia. Anyone who has enjoyed their recent EPs Hard and To Imagine (we see you what you did there, lads) will likely be able to get behind The Neighbourhood. Four cuts from those releases are fleshed out by eight newcomers. The likes of ‘Void’ and ‘Scary Love’ are a little bit The Weeknd, a little bit Imagine Dragons, and will probably be summer smashes.

S.M. Wolf
Bad Ocean

Indianapolis power-poppers S.M. Wolf are back with this limited-edition coloured (and black) vinyl, out on People In A Position To Know, a record full-to-bursting with ravishing multi-instrumentation and deeply personal, charmingly vulnerable lyrics. Expect trademark fuzzed-out pop hooks that could put most chart stalwarts to shame.

Juliana Hatfield
Sings Olivia Newton-John

Ok this is actually a thing. Juliana Hatfield trawls the archives of her hero Olivia Newton John and has hand selected a load of her favourite songs to sing including 'Physical' and 'Xanadu'. But there's actually an important side to this too.... a dollar from the sale of each record will go to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre.

The Love-Birds
In The Lover's Corner

Here's a weird thing. This record by these San Fran power poppers has been mastered by Norman Blake from Teenage Fanclub. Nice of him to get involved but I never had him down as a mastering engineer. Could he be the Taylor Dupree of guitar pop? Anyway his name gives a fair idea of where this is coming from. Crystalline guitar pop reminiscent of all your '90s favourites.

Blues Lawyer
Guess Work

Blues Lawyer weren’t supposed to last long, two shows in fact, but they decided to keep going. Founding members Rob I. Miller and Eylse Schrock met in a record store and realising they shared a fondness for Flying Nun bands such as The Clean and The Bats, started a band. Guess Work is their debut album, combining the punk and pop of The Vaselines, Television Personalities and Wire. LP on Emotional Response.

Lithics
Mating Surfaces

Angles and rhythms aplenty from Portland's Lithics. Second album Mating Surfaces maintains momentum with fast riffs, mobile bass lines and tight drumming. Their rhythmic approach to the overlap between indie and punk is reminiscent of Dutch greats, The Ex. And if you know me that is certainly high praise.

The Dean Ween Group
rock2

The second LP from The Dean Ween Group arrives hot on the heels of the band’s last LP, but that doesn’t mean rock2 sounds rushed. Rather, the record brims with life and melody, suggest that Dean’s hiatus from Ween has done him a world of good. Songs like ‘Don’t Let The Moon Catch You Crying’ are beautiful, swooning rock jams in the vein of Eels and … well, Ween.

Arndales
Shops

Brilliant. These former members of Country Teasers, Art Brut, Collapsed Lung and Thrilled Skinny have got together over a love (or hatred) of retail jargon with songs inspired by the gobbledegook that is spouted in their workplaces. Should be fun, and musically it would appear to appeal to fans of the Fall, Half Man Half Biscuit, Sleaford Mods etc.  
  • Vinyl LP (ITR321)

School Damage
Sings... Four Songs About One Cat

Australian quartet School Damage have followed up their debut LP, Battered Lives with Sings….Four Songs About One Cat, an EP dedicated to their maverick cat, Lumpy. The band started as a bedroom project for Carolyn Hawkins before expanding into a four piece. They take their influences from The Particles, Young Marble Giants and The Vaeslines and feature members of Chook Race, Parsnip, Ausmuteants and Frowning Clouds. 7” on Upset The Rhythm.

Big Search
Life Dollars

The one born Matt Popieluch has been playing with everyone from Glasser to Fools Gold to Sky Ferreira this past decade. When he’s not been helping others out, he’s been putting out vaguely Neil Young-ish rock under the moniker Big Search. This stirring new album should sit nicely between Kurt Vile and Angel Olsen on the BBC Radio 6Music playlist. Out via Danger Mouse’s new label 30th Century Records.

Jeremy Enigk
The Return Of The Frog Queen

Really really great album. This was Jeremy Enigk's first solo album away from Sunny Day Real Estate and it's a totally different kettle of kippers. This is wonderful baroque orchestral-pop with strings and all sorts putting me in mind of Cardinal and Richard Davies. This re-issue comes with the remastered original album plus bonus digital stuff.

Snow Patrol
Wildness

Gary, Nathan, Paul, Johnny, and Jonny return at last with Wildness. Quite a few years in the making, not least as it was scrapped and begun again from scratch midway in, the album reliably packs enough crestfallen indie plodcore to soundtrack an entire season of Grey’s Anatomy. The discerning fan may pick from black vinyl, picture disc, basic CD or deluxe CD with hardback book.

Remember Sports
Slow Buzz

Remember Sports were once called Sports but we're now invited to Remember Sports. The band have moved from a tiny town to a big one and have added a drummer along the way. This is one of those records that revolves around the emotions suffered at the end of a relationship and showcases the band's most ambitious work to date.

E
Negative Work

Boston trio E - featuring former members of Karate, Uzi, Neptune and more - drop their second LP via Thrill Jockey. The ten tracks of Negative Work are a tense, bracing mix of hardcore punk, shredded blues and noise rock. As well as the usual suspects - Fugazi, Mclusky - there’s a fair bit of Metz in here too.

Jo Passed

Oh God I hope not, I'd be devastated. Anyway this band has previously been pre-described as a 'fecked up Beatles' or XTC or Can or Neu. Ok there's a host of great bands to toy with and Jo Passed serve up the kind of dreamy melodies and stellar chord changes we know and love from our favourite records.

The Stroppies
Maddest Moments / Architectural Charades

We very much enjoyed the economical song junk of The Stroppies when we last heard it, lovingly comparing it to all things Girlpool, GbV and New Zealand indie. They're back with two new songs for the most indie rock of things: a 7". These songs are thematically united under the theme of anxiety, extending hum-along empathy to those of us who live with it.

Fu Manchu
King Of The Road

Available on double vinyl LP on At the Dojo. Reissue of Fu Manchu’s sixth studio album that was originally released in 1999. If unfamiliar with the manchu, imagine Kyuss leaving their desert dwellings, taking a shot of whiskey. It’s stoner rock with them readdressing the sex and rock ‘n’ roll ratio.

This is a special expanded edition, packaged with Schtick: Yarbles Revisited.

Biffy Clyro
MTV Unplugged (Live At Roundhouse, London)

Seemingly 20-odd years late to the party, Scottish rockers Biffy Clyro follow in the footsteps of  Nirvana, Pearl Jam and REM by recording an MTV Unplugged set, Live from The Roundhouse, London. All the classics are here in stripped back acoustic form: Machines, The Captain, Black Chandelier, Re-Arrange, to name a few. The set also features a cover of The Beach Boys classic, God Only Knows and a new song, Different Kind Of Love. Double vinyl LP, CD+DVD set and CD on Warner bros.

Liam Gallagher
I've All I Need

Liam Gallagher has a brother. Technically, he has two. He now also has a 7" called "I've All I Need" which I am probably not going to listen to, but I do think about Oasis once a fortnight and I'm okay with having that much of LG in my head. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Liam has a brother.

Class Clown Spots A UFO has been likened to their '90s classics Bee Thousand and Alien Lanes in terms of quality -- lofty praise indeed!

FF (shoegaze band)
Lord

‘Lord’ is the debut LP from Seattle-based punk trio FF. They claim to make gloomy, ethereal punk anthems inspirited by the Northest DIY underground scene of their hometown. Their sound has be likened to My Bloody Valentine, Wipers, Sonic Youth and the Flying Nun Records cabal by lazy journos. Apparently this band is different though, as they’ve broken away from the current tedium of 90s revivalism. That’s what the press release says though so I suppose they would have to say that.

The War on Drugs
A Deeper Understanding

Dire Straits fans rejoice as the War on Drugs get ready to issue their fourth album and the first since 'Lost in the Dream' - the album that saw us branded "off our rockers" because we didn't really like it. Admittedly we were in a minority on that as the album became one of those slow burning hits that everyone owns - just like 'Brothers in Arms' in fact. This is sure to be a much anticipated follow up.

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks
Sparkle Hard

Here's renowned Pavementeer Stephen Malkmus with more indie rock verbosity. Sparkle Hard is his latest record as bandleader of the Jicks, and with its aggressively cheerful title, it's no surprise that he's found some peace writing from a place of joy. I'm sure there's some signature sad sighs in there, too, but it sounds like Malkmus is ready to have a good time.

This is the Beach Slang you know and love, but a little more stripped down, opting for cellos and pianos rather than anything electric.

Or, how Alex Turner went from scruffy to professional. Available on transparent vinyl LP, on Domino.

The Boxing / Park Fires
Circles / Wake Me Up

The ever-reliable singles club Come Play With Me (Mansion Of Snakes, Harkin) have unearthed yet more new talent for their latest split 7”. Leeds duo Park Fires drop the sort of big-room synth-pop smash that Sia and Lorde would tear up the charts with had they been the ones to write it. The Boxing crank it up on the B-side - ‘Circles’ is a nice chunk of psych-rawk with a good ear for melody.

Wax Chattels
Wax Chattels

Auckland’s Wax Chattels self-identify as ‘guitarless guitar music’. This description makes plenty of sense when you get a load of their eponymous debut LP. There’s a lot of rock-isms going on here - the yelpy vocals and pounding drums of a garage rock band, bass licks with a light punk-funk flavour - but the band’s crunchy keyboard sound does the work of a distorted six-string. This being a Captured Tracks release, there’s a nice seam of poppiness that runs through Wax Chattels. Think At The Drive In meets The Gun Club.

Sufjan Stevens made a gorgeous and devastating work with Carrie & Lowell, meditating on his relationship with his mother over a collection of tracks that sounded additive to Elliott Smith's folk style. After releasing a live companion piece, he now also offers The Greatest Gift, with outtakes (read: leftover epics), remixes from friends and iPhone demos. An essential for all who adore this man.

It turns out however, that I was totally wrong, and all though productivity has slowed since their late ‘90s heyday, they’ve still been making albums. Islands is their 7th offering, with the original 3-piece still intact, and comes three years after 2015’s Kablammo! Available as fancy metallic silver vinyl LP, black vinyl LP and CD on Infectious Music.

Death And The Maiden
Wisteria

A brand new nine-track release from Death and the Maiden called Wisteria. This record is available on vinyl LP and CD, and will blow you away with its ability to extend your already heightened levels of anxiety from listening to their previous stuff. Expect weird (but kinda cool, I guess) trance-pop-indie-punk.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Hold That Thought

Are you ready for not one but two Brian Jonestown Massacre albums this year? Well get in the swing by buying this 10" which contains a taster track off each record. Another big year for the never pausing collective and look there is Anton on the cover looking like someone has just sat on his sitar.

Whenyoung
Actor

Irish indie trio whenyoung release their single Actor on red vinyl, with B-side Silverchair, after some buzz around their live appearances. Reflecting their name, the track is an exploration of the fun and fears of youth. Indie niceness. Red 7” on Hate Hate Hate (Fat White Family and The Wytches).

Dog Chocolate
Moody Balloon Baby

Never mind the bollocks… it’s Dog Chocolate. And if you’re into Lahndahn punk what is abrasively facetious and that, it’s also very much the dog’s. Following on from 2014’s Snack Fans, the trio pack a surprising amount of nonsense into fewer than 25 minutes for their latest opus, Moody Balloon Baby. True to the punker roots though, there’s social commentary leaking out through the cacophony.

The Twilight Sad
Nobody Wants To Be Here & Nobody Wants To Leave

Dramatic shoegazers and certifiable sad boys the Twilight Sad made a record with overwhelming emotional scope and weeping guitars back in 2012, known as 'No One Can Ever know'. Taking on different styles of sound but devoting themselves to a full-force, grandiose approach to feedback, 'Nobody Wants To Be Here & Nobody Wants To Leave' is an attempt to bring together other sounds that the band have been interested in, such as synths, playing with an orchestra and everything in between. As long as there's James Graham's voice navigating the gloomy proceedings, it'll sound like a Twilight Sad record.

Death From Above 1979
Live at Third Man Records

Death From Above 1979 recorded these live jams at Third Man studios, under the wise eyes of “patron saint of vibes” (their description) Jack White. That decade away didn’t dull their edge: DFA 1979 still sound like a fierce, noisy blast of sweaty fun. Released on White’s Third Man label.

Whenyoung
Pretty Pure

Whenyoung, do as the young do. The fledgling Irish group debut on Yala! Records, which is run by Felix White (from The Maccabees, come on). Both tracks here are heart-on-sleeve indie-rock that, to be honest, sounds like loads of other bands who are doing that 90s indie/grunge revival thing at the moment. But the songwriting is good, and the singer’s sparky energy and slightly shrill delivery recall The Sugarcubes, which is always a good thing.

Go-Kart Mozart
Mozart's Mini-Mart

Although he's not made a great record since the '80s,  Felt's Lawrence is one of those music industry figures that it's easy to get obsessed about. A complete eccentric in a world of stodge, over the last ten years he's followed his muse into cheesy electro-pop with Go Kart Mozart (Bruce Springsteen lyric  - true). 'Mozart's Mini Mart' is another collection of oddball songs that could only come from his warped mind. Catchy too.

Catherine Wheel
Ferment

Coming in at a solid no 23 in Pitchfork's Top Shoegaze albums, Music on Vinyl have had the good sense to issue Catherine Wheel's now classic 'Ferment' on vinyl. It contains several despatches of noisy shoegaze which is clear cut and rocky rather than woozy. Perhaps closer to Ride than anything else the band used thrashy guitars to create great thumping melodies to leap around your house to when the baby is asleep.

The Sea and Cake
Any Day

The Sea And Cake are comprised of John McIntire (also a member of Tortoise), Sam Prekop, Archer Prewitt and Eric Claridge. They basically write pop music, but their sound is unique: pop music that avoids every cliche with subtlety as its key. There’s a fair amount of technical ability and experimentation thrown in for good measure. Any Day is their first album in six years and their eleventh in a career that spans 25 years. Limited edition pink vinyl, standard black vinyl and CD, all typically beautifully packaged on Thrill Jockey.

Bambara
Shadow On Everything

Anyone who, while enjoying the more erstwhile recent releases Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, has been yearning for some of the old blood and thunder need look no further than the third LP from Brooklyn trio Bambara. A ‘Western Gothic’ album with a loose storyline, the likes of ‘Jose Tries To Leave’ wouldn’t sound out of place on From Her To Eternity or Let Love In. There’s also a nice Metz-y scree to the guitar tones. Out via Wharf Cat Records (Palberta, La Peste).

Yo La Tengo
There’s A Riot Going On

I think this is as good a time as any for a new Yo La Tengo record. The world could do with a little bit of the soothing balm they put into their music. Unlike many other bands of their vintage who rely on collaboration and guest stars to ice their records, Yo La Tengo did this all themselves....and that's the way we like it.

Dantevilles
Dantevilles

Dantevilles aren’t the kind of band you would expect to come from Manchester, given the city’s musical heritage. Their music is owes more to radio-friendly danceable soft rock of the ‘70s than the Hacienda. However, their ear for melody, incisive guitars, and compelling manner give them the potential to rule a new Manchester sound. 5-Track 12" EP on Heist or Hit.

Luke Haines
I Sometimes Dream Of Glue

Luke Haines, formerly of The Auteurs, Baader Meinhof and Black Box Recorder returns with I Sometimes Dream Of Glue, a concept album which centres on the residents of Glue Town. Glue Town is a tiny place just off the Westway, in the roadside grass, in fact. The residents are permanently aroused glue sniffers whose only available entertainment is an old Michael Bentine show. Apparently. Limited edition LP and CD on Cherry Red.

The Magic Numbers
Outsiders

The nicest band in rock return with their fifth LP and first since 2014’s Alias. Siblings Stodart and Gannon may have beefed up their sound a little on Outsiders - there’s a grit to cuts like ‘Sweet Divide’ which evokes modern blues-rockers like The Black Keys - but their trademark harmonies ala The Mama’s and the Papa’s keep things on the sunny side.

Holm
Dappled

Tough Love Records (Ulrika Spacek, The Proper Ornaments) drop their first EP by Danish polymath Holm, an artist who has already made records with Yung, Brooch, Tears and more. The four tracks of Dappled are rough-and-ready home-taping that skirts the line between bedroom indie and twee-punk. Songs like 'Hope' evince a neat way with harmony and melody. Yo La Tengo, Frankie Cosmos, Girlpool and more spring to mind.

Mark Lanegan
Whiskey For The Holy Ghost

Mark Lanegan’s second solo album is back on the streets again in the form of this double gatefold LP. Whiskey For The Holy Ghost is dark and dramatic and deeply American, pulling away from the grunge sound of his Screaming Trees (although there is a guest appearance from Dan Peters of Mudhoney). Reissued by Sub Pop.

Ariel Pink

Its a good time to take a look back at Ariel Pink’s early effort, Thrash and Burn. Its a sprawl of ideas and spontaneity that makes Pom Pom look tight by comparison. Historians place this as being from sometime in 1998, and coming in at 94 minutes, it is quite a ride...to be enjoyed via double CD or vinyl, on Human Ear.

The EFFECTS
Eyes To The Light

Est. 2014 in Washington, DC during a fight for control of the caps lock key, the EFFECTS are a trio specialising in riffy, post-punk U.S. indie. On this debut LP Eyes to the Light, the band follows a canonically restless approach of punctuating expressive melodic verses and rough choruses with menageries of tight little fills and midsections. Expect plenty of knobbly bass, precise guitar, curveball moments of harmonic pathos and unrestrained vocals.

Appreciation

Who knew horses had feathers? How wonderful.

Gaz Coombes
World's Strongest Man

This Norman Records™ blurb writer loved Supergrass as a wee nipper, so it was with glee that he clicked through to write the description for the new Gaz Coombes LP. Then he read the press-release for World’s Strongest Man. The former SG frontman’s third solo album claims to have taken inspiration from ‘Grayson Perry’s The Descent of Man, Frank Ocean’s Blonde, Californian weed, British woodlands, unchecked masculinity, Neu! and hip hop (and a whole lot more besides)’. Could go either way, this one. Mind you - ‘Deep Pockets’, the record’s first single, is a promising start. It’s a sort of psych-rock reimagining of Wayne Smith’s ‘Under Me Sleng Teng’. Hopefully the rest of the thing falls on the right side of the fence.

Failing that, you can buy the standard LP and CD and write ‘Justin’, ‘Freddie’ and ‘Arni’ on it yourself and tell your mates it was signed by the band.

It also tells us that ‘My World, Your Life’ might mark the beginning of Borrell’s flamenco phase, which is a truly terrifying prospect.
