Album of the Week – 31-07-20

This week sees new releases from Gillian Welch (Boots No. 2: The Lost Songs, Vol. 1), !!! (pronounced as Chk Chk Chk with their EP Certified Heavy Katz) and Daniel Blumberg (On & On) all of whom are featured below!

However, it’s another week with a very obvious choice that we were never going to ignore! There is some great old fashioned rock music coming out of Ireland at the moment, with the Fontaines D.C. at the forefront. It’s an album worth exploring.

Album of the Week – A Hero’s Death by Fontaines D.C.

“It’s such a relief to hear that success hasn’t dulled the band’s edge at all. This album is a more thoughtful beast than their debut, sure, but it’s easily the equal of Dogrel, and may prove to have more staying power.” – Killian Laher – Review
