The Californian succeeds, once again, in exposing the ugliness of mankind. It’ll get under your skin
Thrice/Thursday : Under A Killing Moon / For The Work Force Drowning
...limited to 1,000 copies and bursting with tenderness and compassion...
California’s Thrice make a joyous racket, harnessing the melodious skill of The Replacements with the metallic frigidity of Slayer. Meanwhile, New Jersey’s Thursday go one better by laying down a slice of teardrop-stained rock action that reeks of stolen youth and aching hearts. NME hereby declares this magnificent split to be the most honest, impassioned and forward-thinking rock music we’ve heard in a long time. Awesome, inspiring stuff.
A deeply weird and very funny animation from the twisted minds of Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Jonah Hill
A hilarious and horrifying true story about the world of competitive tickling, to watch with your mouth agape
Eight tracks of harrowingly stripped- back and intense dance music that’ll have you stomping your feet in no time
An hour-long, largely ambient electronic album by the drummer from Alt-J. It’s decent!
