Tuesday Update King Gizzard, Stereolab, the Lucid Dream, Coil, John Carpenter

New Will Oldham, Insecure Men, a Jason Williamson book, David Sylvian and Silver Jews re-issues and another of our genre guides to chew over. 


And so we return approximately 65334578 words lighter without Robin here to keep our word count above sea level. Hopefully not all the albums in the world got bought on National Album Day and we still have some left for you. Maybe look below and see what you see. Remember, an album isn’t just for National Album Day…

New records:

  • Indie emo practitioners Minus the Bear celebrate Robin’s departure by splitting up.
  • Perma-constipated the Verve frontman Richard Ashcroft. Get him some prunes.
  • Watch out there’s a Wolfe loose at Roadburn! Chelsea Wolfe of course.
  • Will Oldham re-does his back catalogue. Again. Also: dog on sleeve.
  • Book by Jason Williamson of Sleaford Mods about bleak things like chips and concrete.
  • Insecure Men already ensure their place at the top end of the Quietus year end charts courtesy of their Peter Andre cover.
  • Carlisle’s finest psych/dub practitioners The Lucid Dream.
