Album of the Week – 27/09/19

New releases this week include 65daysofstatic (replicr, 2019), Laurie Anderson, Tenzin Choegyal, and Jesse Paris Smith (Songs From the Bardo) and Moon Duo (Stars Are the Light), among others. There was meant to be a new release by Kanye West (Jesus is King) but its been held back for reasons unknown!

David Hasselhoff’s new album Open Your Eyes has a cover version of Head On by the Jesus And Mary Chain which has to be heard below!

We’ve gone for something closer to home with the release of the second album by Dublin’s Girl Band. At times not the easiest listen but seems to capture something wild and abrasive.

Album of the Week – 27/09/19 – Girl Band – The Talkies

“The Talkies is the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed debut LP Holding Hands with Jamie, of which Pitchfork wrote, “it’s hard to think of another guitar-based band conjuring fear this exhilarating and volume this rapturous.”

The Talkies was produced by the band’s own Daniel Fox, and recorded in November 2018 at Ballintubbert House, a stately manor  on the outskirts of Dublin. “In many ways,” says band member Alan Duggan, “the idea behind the album was to make an audio representation of the manor home.” The space became Girl Band’s sonic playground as the members worked to adjust to the house’s corners and textures to create the soundscape of the record.”
