DUMB BLOOD is finally out and it’s an absolute beauty of an album.
This melodic charm comes from Some Kind of Illness, an alternative band from Farnworth. They released the self-titled album in August 2015. But it’s over a year on and it feels like this album could be timeless.
It’s nearing the end of Summer and soon we’ll have a load of fresh Autumn releases. But before we get there, I thought I’d have a look back on some of my favourite albums of 2016 so far.
After such a long wait for new music from Moose Blood, my anticipation for Blush was high. The band announced in April that they would be signing to Hopeless Records which scared a lot of fans as they didn’t want their sound to change. But this album has proved that they are still in touch with their roots.
As we all know, the British summer isn’t exactly what we’d call “the warmest season of the year” but it’s fast approaching and we always need a summer soundtrack. Here’s a few albums that give me those fun, fresh, summery vibes everytime I listen to them.
VOYEURISM is the second album from Merseyside band, Vukovar. Buddy Preston, Dan Shea and Rick Clarke formed the band back in 2014 and this record is full of brilliant instrumentals that take you on one hell of journey.
Shambolic is the fantastic debut album from London based band, Dead Coast. With elements of blues and psychedelic rock, this is definitely one of those albums that you won’t get tired off.
