Palace - Running Wild
Beneath the signature guitar leads and dusty vocals rumbles a gentle yet prominent bass-line, and Palace once again has us running with them. An incredibly exciting and promising track to tease the trio’s third album, “Life After”, due mid-July.
Metronomy - Salted Caramel Ice Cream
I scream, you scream, we all scream for Metronomy. The kind of track that’ll have you too busy bopping along to catch the drips running down the cone. Pass my shades.
Crumb - Fall Down
In a gooey trip of psychedelic bliss, Crumb returns with ‘Fall Down’. But we don’t so much ‘fall’ as we do ‘sink’ into this new release, easing into a dreamy haze led by the title track. A mellow start that eventually uncovers a short, sweet glimpse into the bands more up-tempo potential.
Wives - The 20 Teens
Diving into a deep rolling guitar from the offset, the track heads for a slightly more power-ballad feel than the usual hard rock. In saying that, while simpler in premise than their previous singles, ‘The 20 Teens’ could well be a new entry for those late night sing-alongs among the indie crowds. WIVES are off on a tangent with this one, but we’re intrigued to see where it’s going
Swim Deep - To Feel Good
With choirs, keys and spoken verse, this is not the Swim Deep we thought we knew. Dreamy and direct, this new track will hit you hard.
Featured across The Rodeo's Weekly Roundups, from end of May to late June 2019. Find them here.
"Spanning fifteen venues with over 100 acts, NBHD is back, slamming Manchester with another belter of a line-up. Just picture it: the attitudes, the guitars, the blazers. It’s almost too much. So, who made this year’s cut? The results are in.
Most Likely To Break A Bone On Stage: Sports Team
There is nothing more epic than an enthusiastic frontman. Alas, there is also nothing more dangerous. Sports Team’s Alex Rice is the perfect example, his footwork alone from is like something from a 60s rock n roll gig: gloriously groovy, but prime opportunity for a twisted ankle. We hope not, of course, so… break a leg?"
"I grew up with old-school Disney Channel but sadly, my generation was the last to bask in its final golden years. Kids today will never know the frantic run downstairs to the TV as the theme song started: the beat, the guitar, the limo out front. If Hannah Montana was the Queen of after-school telly, my brother and I were her peasant followers, watching in awe.
But now a decade has passed and the wig is off - Miley Cyrus is back again. Long gone are the preteen bops, mini-album SHE IS COMING, is a whole frickin' mood..."
Hi. Are you stuck in the 90s? Have you been involved in a music evolution that wasn’t your fault? Why not try Liam Gallagher's newest single, ‘Shockwave’.
"LG is back and is still ‘fucking mega’, but only if you ask LG himself; fantastic news for all those die-hard Oasis fans who can’t let go. Fuck Noel with his clever albums, his commendable song-writing and his High Flying Birds, we want the same old shit we’ve heard since 1994.
It’s just as well, then, that Liam has teased a clip of his awaited new track, ‘Shockwave’..."
"Everyone has something they revisit each Christmas. What is it, Love Actually? The Muppet Christmas Carol? It’s A Wonderful Life? (very original, well done you). All valid answers, but all wrong. Christmas is a time for Gavin and Stacey.
Its Christmas special has sparked annual joy since it was first broadcast in 2008. Now – almost a decade later – Christmas has come early, as co-writers James Corden and Ruth Jones announce a one-off Christmas special, due to hit the BBC on Christmas Day 2019. Fuck. Yes.
SO, as the good news settles in, let’s look back on some of the most iconic scenes from G&S in the only way we know how: with its soundtrack..."
