  • Album of the Week. It’s a nice time.
  • Congratulations to Phil who is engaged to be married -- and this time, it isn’t to the job!

Goodness gracious me there’s been a lot of music this week, and King Gizzard only account for an approximate 1% of it. Unbelievable scenes. I’ve spent most of my week trying to reduce the amount of bullet points you have to stare at in this update; my sincere apologies to anyone sick of seeing bolded circular shapes by the end of it all.

I won’t bore you with any shop news this week. We’re all the same as ever. There’s too much music and too little time: go forth and pick your poison.

New:

The party.

...And it’s the return of our beloved post-bullet paragraph, featuring the likes of Palace Winter, Belly, Damien Jurado, Cut Worms, Häxxan, John 3:16, Jacob Yates and glacis. I’m sorry; there’s too much for words and snark this week. You’re gonna have to be my eyes and ears and find out for yourself. Go forth and teleport through our network of hyperlinks.

Reissues:

The after party.
