Frank Turner’s 9th studio album FTHC is due out February 22nd of next year and the lead single “Haven’t Been Doing So Well” scores Song of the Week honors this week. The album was written during the forced downtime during the pandemic. Mr. Turner has mentioned in interviews that the new album is a return to roots, more direct and raw than the direction previous efforts were going in.
Lots of great alternative music has been going out lately but this track stood out this week. Enjoy!
Sleigh Bells’ 5th studio album Texis scores Album of the Week honors this week. The noise pop band out of Brooklyn, NY delivers the album just under 5 years since 4th album Jessica Rabbit, their longest gap between albums. How did the extra time effect the music? Sound off in the comments.
The album is solid front to back but we’ve got 3 must-hear songs picked out which include the lead singles “Justine Go Genesis” and “Loucst Laced”.
The band will be going out on an 11-date US tour with the band Kills Birds in October. You can check the tour dates here.
The Vaccines are back with their 5th studio album Back In Love City, an album that is fantastic from start to finish and sure to continue the band’s upward trajectory. Definitely check out the album in it’s entirety, but until then we have selected three must hear tracks, including the title track and the single that has gotten an official music video so far, “Alone Star”. We threw in the song “El Paso” for a slightly different taste of the band’s sound.
