Kele Okereke revamps his solo career with Fatherland

Kele Okereke revamps his solo career with Fatherland | Music Features | Scoop.it
Back in 2010, Bloc Party frontman Kele started his solo career with The Boxer,  a hit-and-miss electronic album which reinforced on-going suspicions about him not feeling entirely comfortable anymore with the angular indie rock sound that once made him and his band famous. Perhaps it was Bloc... http://www.drunkenwerewolf.com/reviews/kele-okereke-fatherland/

To be the first artist featuring your native tongue – in this case, Irish Gaelic – in a mainstream video game (here, FIFA 2018) is quite a feather to have in one’s cap.

Ducktails offer small pleasures on Jersey Devil | Music Features | Scoop.it
There’s no way we can discuss Jersey Devil without mentioning how it’s the first album put out by Matt Mondanile since his potentially acrimonious split with Real Estate.

Protomartyr put Detroit back on the map with Relatives in Descent | Music Features | Scoop.it
Detroit hasn’t had a great time of it in recent years. It’s become so synonymous with being fucked it can even claim the inauspicious distinction of having a Wikipedia page dedicated to its decline. Not many cities can claim that, nor can they claim having filed bankruptcy as in 2014. There’s... https://www.drunkenwerewolf.com/reviews/protomartyr-relatives-in-descent/

Grace Lightman‘s blend of psych-pop has a certain faded feeling to it. While it’s pristinely produced – her latest track, “Fangs”, was worked upon by Ben Baptie (London Grammar) – you can almost hear the crackling on the recording.
