Top 25 - 29 May, 2016

Bec Sandridge, Garbage, Ngaiire + Wild Beasts!

1. Ngaiire - House On A Rock (NEW)

2. Gang of Youths - Strange Diseases

3. Bec Sandridge - You're A Fucking Joke (NEW)

Matt's Pick of the Week: This right here is awesome. Actually, this right here is fucking awesome! Which shouldn't come as any surprise, given that it's a new track from Bec Sandridge... an artist who gets better and better with each new release. 'You're A Fucking Joke' is the anthem we needed, the anthem we deserve and the track that's going to be running through all of our minds when thinking about, talking to or even just looking at those that we know are absolute fucking jokes. I've had this song in my life for less than a week and already it's there in my head, waiting to be unleashed at a moment's notice. It starts with those keys, the driving beat of the percussion and what I'm pretty sure is a glockenspiel (because everything is better with a fucking glockenspiel, ok?!) before Sandridge starts telling us not to "let the fucker in" and you're thinking, "yeah, fuck that guy." And it builds spectacularly to what I'm thinking is my favourite segment in any song so far this year, when Bec finally unleashes on the fucking joke in question in her life. I know I've been taking advantage of the f-word quite a bit through this and that's all fun and games, but in all seriousness this song is ridiculously good, the race to the finish line is all kinds of amazing and there seems to be no stopping Bec Sandridge right now. Am I joking about that? No fucking chance. (Matt Bond)   

4. Miami - Happier

5. SS Sebastian - Nightmare of 1984

6. Wild Beasts - Get My Bang (NEW)

Jo's Pick of the Week: Coming from a band whose song titles include ‘Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants’, ‘Woebegone Wanderers’ and my personal fave, ‘Hooting And Howling’; I admittedly didn’t expect a song titled ‘Get My Bang’, but I guess that kind of describes my relationship with Wild Beasts and my history with their music perfectly. With every song, with every album, just when I think I get it, along comes a hidden chord, a note I hadn’t heard before, a word I hadn’t noticed and bam, the discovery of them begins all over again, each discovery uncovering something new that I adore a little more. And so describes my thoughts on their latest offering, taken from what will be their fifth album Boy King, its subtly energetic feel is exactly what I like about Wild Beasts and its stupidly sleazy sense is exactly what I didn’t expect…which is exactly what I expected, if you see what I mean.
