New Release Roundup 1/5/18

Singles

Courtney Barnett – City Looks Pretty: Another great single from Courtney here, with her usual great lyrics over an upbeat guitar track. Nice. 87%

Plan B – Mercy: A nice, beat driven dancey track from Mr.B here. His vocals still have that charm that made him popular the first time around and I feel this new sound actually fits him quite well. 80%

The Internet – Roll (Burbank Funk): This is a really great, brilliantly produced funky single from The Internet here, with Steve Lacy’s vocals taking centre stage.  91%

Albums 

Blossoms – Cool Like You: The second album from Stockport indie lads Blossoms is exactly what you expect, but that’s not all bad. Tracks like Unfaithful and There’s A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls) are some of the best indie pop tracks i’ve heard in a while. but some of the tracks fall a bit flat.   Good though. 75%

Janelle Monae – Dirty Computer: As expected, this is pretty good. All the tracks seem different enough stylistically to stand out, but the album still flows really well. Lead single ‘Make Me Feel’ still stands out, but tracks like ‘Take a Byte’ and ‘I Got The Juice’ with Pharrell are excellent too. Very nice. 94%
