/This Week/New Releases
Catching up a bit after not being able to post last Friday. One outstanding release last week came from synthpop/electro group The New Division, whose new album Hidden Memories comes highly recommended (and Fascination from it was track of the month on /Tuesday Ten/394 – link at the bottom).
Also released last week was the first new material from Be My Enemy in ages (Wardance EP), as well as a new version of Un-United Kingdom by Pitchshifter (and it appeared to be revealed this morning that there is an EP coming next week).
/This Week/Upcoming Releases
A whole host of new releases have been announced in the past few weeks.
In date order: 28-Feb see the latest release from Rhys Fulber, the Diaspora EP. The lead track featuring Sara Taylor of Youth Code, as they take on Black Flag’s Slip It In. Two days later Concrete Lung are back with The Ecstasy of Emptiness, and then on 13-Mar post-punk group SPECTRES release Nostalgia.
Then on 27-Mar, Pouppée Fabrikk release Armén, their first new material in an age if I recall correctly, while progressive doomsters Katatonia return from a brief hiatus with City Burials – and the radically different single Lacquer is out now.
Talking of returns, on 08-May Lamb of God release their self-titled eighth album, while a week later Sparks release A Steady Drip, Drip, Drip. Then, on 05-Jun Nadine Shah releases her new album Kitchen Sink.
This weekly listing has now seen a significant overhaul, and has moved over to a Shareable calendar format that is embedded below. You can add it to your own calendar views if you wish (GCal link, iCal link), and then you will get dynamic updates as I get them. Otherwise see the embedded calendar below.
If you have updates, relevant events for me, or want to tell me about something else, use the contact details above.
Look out for /Tuesday Ten/395, /transmission/019 and /Into the Pit/210 in the coming week.
