Corona has swept the nation, BJ has it, your nan might have it (hopefully not) but it’s crippled this once great nation and now we must stay indoors! I’ve got a few albums I think you should sit down, grab a glass of red and listen to, so without further ado, here they are;
Oscar – HTTP404
Oscar is one of my favourite solo artists around, I’ve been a huge fan since his debut album dropped in 2016 and I’ve even hugged the lad, that’s not the reason you should listen to his sophomore record but it sure helps! “HTTP404” is a mature record, Oscar Spent most of his hiatus producing other people’s records and singles and that affects this record heavily! It’s chill and it’ll boost your street cred with people who think they know more than you do!
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – Infest The Rats Nest
“Infest The Rats Nest” was my first Gizz record and I’m not gonna lie it probably isn’t the best one but if it get’s you into Gizz like it did me then I’ll recommend it till the day I die! Gizz is a lifestyle choice. “ITRN” is heavy, it’s hard, it’s pretty demanding, it’s a full on record with a lot of influences, mainly Metallica but any rock fan will find pleasure in it!
Temples – Sun Structures
Admittedly I always forget about Temples, the band that popped my Psychedelic cherry. It’s not a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination but what it does is create a brilliant soundscape, you can fill the room with it’s sound, it’s never heavy and at times is incredibly trippy. I don’t say this lightly but anyone who like me love’s “Tame” i’d highly recommend the Temples Discography.
MGMT – Little Dark Age
For the chart warriors MGMT will only ever be remembered for “Kids”, “Electric Feel” and “Time to Pretend” but it’s been more than 10 years since those chart toppers and the boys are 6500 miles ahead of where they were then believe me! This album is so dark and intriguing it almost reminds you of that cute girl that nobody else thought was cute but you just couldn’t talk to her (maybe that was just me but you all have a similar analogy) “Little Dark Age” was arguably one of the best albums of 2018 and yet non of you shmucks listened to it.
Pond – Tasmania
I can’t remember if i’ve talked about Pond before on here or just mentioned it to mates (Yes Ben I am talking about you). Tasmania is a semi political psych pop record, it’s great. It’s one of the best records released in the last 5 years.
Cheers for reading about a few albums you should definitely listen to whilst you’re doing nothing!
More reviews and pieces to come soon… Maybe
