New Releases 01/03/2010

Not a bad day today folks! Today if you stoll into your local record emporium you will find these new offerings:

Blood Red Shoes – Fire Like This
Brian Jonestown Massacre – Who Killed Sgt Pepper?
Ellie Goulding – Lights
Frightened Rabbit – Winter Of Mixed Drinks
Groove Armada – Black Light
Joanna Newsom – Have One On Me
Two Door Cinema Club – Tourist History

A fairly eclectic lot. Joanna Newsom is as marmite an artist as you will find, though may found her album Y one of the definitive albums of the noughties. Frightened Rabbit have the potential to emulate Biffy Clyro’s Caledonian Rock success, similarly wibbly of vocal and soaring of guitar as they are. Ellie Goulding is neither as good as the hype suggested nor as bad as the more misanthropic of you may have hoped for. It’s worth a listen. Two Door Cinema Club have made a proper decent  indie album. It’s like the Family Cat are back, God help us for saying it.

And finally, you have to love the Brian Jonestown Massacre. But if you don’t, here’s a track to start the process. It’s called ‘Tempo 116.7’ (audio only.) Enjoy.

  1. Frightened Rabbit wrote that album in Crail, which gets my vote as it’s one of my favourite places. Don’t get the Biffy thing, though, I thought they sounded kinda folky/Fence Collective type-thing……

  2. Joanne Newsom – I loved ‘Ys’ and have yet to find anyone else who didn’t find it truly terrible!! Ach well.

    Didn’t like Frightened Rabbit’s vocalist and his Proclaimers thing, but they could be huge and good luck to them.

  3. I believe Sudehead who posts on here is a big fan.

    I never listened to it in case I liked it as I didn’t like her. A harp FFS!

    As for FR, no, they are very rock HW. Bert, agree totally with the vocals. They are too mimsy for my tates.
