Following up from 2014's Cope, the ever brilliant Manchester Orchestra bring their fifth full length album A Black Mile to the Surface, another excellent release from the band, it's crushing and beautiful. If you're into Thrice, Bear's Den or Jimmy Eat World then check this out.

“We’re a band that loves to use heavy, crunchy guitars,” says frontman Andy Hull. “We wondered how we could limit the use of that, so that when the guitars come in they can be creative and impactful. For Swiss Army Man [a Sundance hit the boys worked on] we had to make seventy minutes of music with our hands tied behind our backs. When you’re creating all the sounds you need just from the human voice, it allows you to rethink what is possible, and determine what is really needed. We wanted to make an album in a ‘ non-Manchester’ way if there is such a thing.”
