New Release Roundup 24th November 17

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – Who Built The Moon?: The latest album from NG is a big departure from his previous two solo efforts on the surface, but you quickly realise it’s not that out there. Lead single ‘Holy Mountain’ is catchy, but it sounds like a Ricky Martin covering something The Vaccines’ last album. Unfortunately, in my opinion, that is the standout track on the album. It’s A Beautiful World sounds like your standard Noel track but without any of the punchy rock production that made his 1st album so successful. Following that, a long run of forgettable tracks – and that’s it. As you weren’t. 40%

Morrissey – Low in High School: It’s a shame that this album is so poor and obviously fuelled by his personal opinions and general dickery, because his voice is still there and sounds great. No real standout tracks on this album at all, with the lead single ‘Spent The Day In Bed’ becoming more and more irritating every time I hear it. Compared to his briliant ‘World Peace Is None Of Your Business’ album, this is uninspired and drab. 20%

Craig David & Bastille – I Know You: I wasn’t expecting too much from this, but rather than having a big, cheesy arena-sized banger of a chorus, this track opts for a minimal beat drop. It’s alright to be fair. 66%

One Bit & Noah Cyrus –My Way: A great, fun dance track from elecronic duo One Bit, with Noah Cyrus providing a great vocal performance. Wouldn’t mind this becoming a big hit. 70%

The Orielles – Let Your Dogtooth Grow: Another super track from Halifax indie group The Orielles. Very excited for their debut album now. 85%

Dua Lipa x Initial Talk – New Rules 80s Remix: It was a banger to begin with, but this remix has elevated it to pretty much perfect pop. 80%

Rae Morris – Atletico: A really well produced, catchy pop single from Rae with a v good vocal performance. 75%
