Album of the Week – 16/07/20

This week sees a new release from Jarv Is (yes, that one) which has some great moments, as you’ve possibly already heard. There are also albums by Guided by Voices (Mirrored Aztec) and Bing & Ruth (Species) among many others.

There’s also the debut release from the Silverbacks (Fad) which we reviewed here. We were very close to going for the lovely piano sounds of Laraaji (Sun Piano), but in the end, we went for the fairly obvious choice…

Album of the Week – Ultimate Success Today by Protomartyr

“Ultimate Success Today is Protomartyr’s fifth album. Following the release of Relatives In Descent, the band’s critically acclaimed headlong dive into the morass of American life in 2017, Ultimate Success Today continues to further expand the possibilities of what a Protomartyr album can sound like.”
