Album of the Week – 29/04/22

This week sees the return of Frog Eyes! They broke up in 2018 and then announced their return a couple of months back! It’s fair to say that the world’s press didn’t get overly excited about the news but it’s nice to have them back, none the less.

Otherwise, there are new sounds from Bloc Party (Alpha Games), Honeyglaze (Honeyglaze) and the duo of William Basinski and Janek Schaefer (…on reflection) but none of them took the top prize! We went for Girlpool and their new album Forgiveness. It’s a hard album to classify as each song sounds entirely different from the last. It’s a nice mishmash of worlds. Check it out below…
