1 1975LP3.png The 1975 A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships We've now run out of fully-signed CDs, but we have a few albums which are signed but smudged, or partially signed. The choices that remain are: 1) smudged, but signed by all 4 members of the band 2) signed by Matty (which is not smudged) but not signed by all 4 members. "The word 'eclectic' is bandied around a lot, but this album really is a mix of styles, all of them undoubtedly The 1975. A social commentary on life in 2018, poetry, love and anger, infectious songs, the extra mile with the art, two great Kingston shows, an incredibly dedicated fanbase and the band, label and management doing everything they can to accommodate. Even having been surrounded by it for weeks, I still put it on at home. Our biggest selling album of all time." - jt The huge third full length from the iconic The 1975. It's an eclectic mix of indie-rock, pop, social commentary, and electronica, and they're being named the band of a generation. Clever and profound, funny and light, serious and heartbreaking, painfully modern and classic-sounding all at the same time, ‘A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships’ is a game-changing album, one that challenges The 1975’s peers – if, indeed, there are any – to raise their game. The 1975 take on that overwhelming anxiety with nerve and aplomb, and the result combines the fist-raising inspired by anthems with the gut-punch provided by precisely described longing. This is the band of the Decade Dirty Hit / Polydor CD | LP
6 NSR127.png Moose Blood I'll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time In years to come they'll write books about Moose Blood. This is the album which is to spearhead a new kind of British emo-rock. After some real good EPs, we'd been waiting for this coming of age album. You should know all about them by now, but if not, listen below, and fall in love. “I'll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time is everything that we've been working towards since the start of the band in 2012,” says drummer Glenn Harvey. “I think there is a much more personal and honest feel to this record than on anything else we've done up to this point. Seeing these songs turn from ideas at our practice space to a finished 11 track album has been an incredible experience. We're all really proud of this record and we can't wait for everybody to finally hear it.” Moose Blood aren’t afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves. Produced by Saosin guitarist Beau Burchell, I’ll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time is replete with heartfelt, yearning lyrics about life and love that exude vulnerability with a comforting warmth. The record moves through waves of emotion from the pensive opening balad “Cherry” to the follow-up upbeat tempo of “Anyway,” sailing through the mounting crescendos of “I Hope You’re Missing Me” to the memorable, driving rhythm of “Swim Down.” With each chorus and riff, I’ll Keep You In Mind, From Time To Time draws listeners in with its unrelenting honesty and intense passion. 2014 will undoubtedly be the year Moose Blood makes their everlasting mark on the alternative rock scene.

9 NSB060619.png Bastille / New Slang Thursday 6th June at New Slang, 9:00pm To celebrate the release of their hugely anticipated third full length album, the wonderful Bastille return to Kingston to play at New Slang. Following on from 2016's Wild World, the unique, cinematic and electric-fuelled indie-pop quartet bring Doom Days. We're super excited to hear another offering of their huge music and live shows. The new album captures the need to temporarily switch off and escape whilst taking the listener on a big night out in search of distraction from the surrounding apocalypse; be that screaming along to the radio in the back of an Uber careering through the city (the electric Quarter Past Midnight), getting loved up in the company of good friends (future classic 4AM), a casual hook-up (Another Place) or the end-of-night longing to be with somebody (the captivating Those Nights). It revels in the bad decisions we make both personally in our relationships and collectively on a macro scale (Bad Decisions), tells a relatable tale of being cornered into a deep discussion about the world’s problems when all you want to do is have a good time (Million Pieces), and wryly confronts modern anxieties, taking side-swipes at phone addiction, porn addiction, fake news and climate change denial (the uncompromising Doom Days). Times TBC but we expect doors at 9:00pm with Bastille on at 10:30pm. After the show, it's New Slang as usual where you can expect to hear the likes of CHVRCHES, Biffy Clyro, Catfish & The Bottlemen, The 1975, Arctic Monkeys, Two Door Cinema Club and many more until 2AM.
