    Thought I’d create a thread on them as I’m not sure if they’re popular enough on here to warrant a thread for the new album that was just announced.

    Talking of which...



    Some interesting features including Tame Impala, Idles and Greentea Peng

    huh, weird timing - was just thinking about him for the first time in years because I watched the Inbetweeners movie last night which he apparently did the soundtrack for

    Need to give the new tape a listen still. Not really enjoyed a project since his second album, so a little hesitant that it may not be any good haha

    Talking of things that aren't good, this review for his first album is... *face palm* The Streets: Original Pirate Material

    Everything about Original Pirate Material reminds me of my late teens and where I was in my life. But it’s more than just a nostalgia buzz. I can’t describe it. It just takes me back yet it still sounds fresh and new and innovative.

    I remember hearing Has It Come To This? on the radio for the first time and thinking it was garbage. But there’s something about the piano line throughout that eats away at you and stays in your head for years. It’s probably my favourite track of his now.

    Finally got around to listen to his new one and it’s probably the best thing he’s done since A Grand Don’t Come For Free. Really good stuff and the features work really well.
