Primal Scream

Like many of the bands of the post-punk 80s, Primal Scream has had innumerable line-up changes with the singer, Bobby Gillespie, as the constant.

The band continues to change their sound, not content to dwell in the past. This album includes assistance from Sky Ferreira and Haim.

“Trippin’ on Your Love” is from their 11th and latest album Chaosmosis.

Mark Pritchard (featuring Thom Yorke)

British/Australian electronic producer Mark Pritchard asked Radiohead’s Thom Yorke to sing on his forthcoming album Under the Sun.

In the song “Beautiful People” Pritchard distorts and enhances Yorke’s vocals to create a gorgeous lament.

Bat For Lashes

The marvelous singer Bat For Lashes has completed her concept album The Bride, due July 1st.

The album “tells the story of a would-be bride whose fiancée is killed in a car crash on the way to their wedding, after which she embarks on what would have been her honeymoon alone and reflects upon the swirling emotions she’s feeling.”

She plans to perform The Bride in churches and the audience is invited to wear wedding attire.

“I Do” and the chilling “In God’s House” set up the album.

After 4 decades they still write driving music as heard on the title track of their forthcoming (15th) album Nocturnal Koreans.
